GMO foods will now be labeled “bioengineered” | 轉基因食品現在將被貼上“生物工程”的標籤

(Natural News) Genetically modified foods — once known as “genetically modified organisms,” or GMOs — are now going to be called something else, so you need to be on the lookout for the new term as global government types try to hide them.

GMO foods will now be labeled “bioengineered” under — ironically — “new food disclosure rules” in the U.S. that took effect on New Year’s Day, because renaming something that has long been associated with negative outcomes is only called “disclosure” by a globalist deep state.

As reported by The Epoch Times, food manufacturers were given until Jan. 1 to comply with the new rules, which were actually formulated and issued under the Trump administration. But his hand was forced by a law passed by Congress during Barack Obama’s last year in office creating “a national standard for disclosing foods that are or may be bioengineered.”

The national standard “avoids a patchwork state-by-state system that could be confusing to consumers,” said then-Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, who served under Trump.

Again, a ‘national standard’ now means individual states or localities who want to continue using the more familiar ‘GMO’ label will now be prohibited from doing so. And while “bioengineered” seems to be an accurate term, it will no doubt be ‘lost in the shuffle’ as Americans who were accustomed to seeing the other term could wind up being confused by the new one.

Fortunately, there are groups out there who have not only objected to the change but have also filed court action to stop it, including the Center for Food Safety, which says the labeling requirements will only confound consumers.

“These regulations are not about informing the public but rather designed to allow corporations to hide their use of genetically engineered ingredients from their customers,” Andrew Kimbrell, executive director of the center, said in a statement. “It is a regulatory scam, which we are seeking to rescind in federal court.”

In addition, the Organic Trade Association, the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy, and The Non-GMO Project have all lodged their opposition to the new rule as well.

“Overall, many products containing GMOs will not be labeled, meaning that the absence of a bioengineered (BE) disclosure does not mean a product is non-GMO,” the project said in a statement after the new rules were implemented.

The Epoch Times notes:

Congress, in the National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Law, ordered food manufacturers to place on labels text, a symbol, or a digital link such as a QR code if products have bioengineered ingredients. Lawmakers used the term bioengineered, but allowed the Department of Agriculture to use similar terms. However, the agency opted to stick with just bioengineered.

There are actually supporters of the new regulation, however, including ‘food industry’ organizations such as the Food Marketing Institute and the Grocery Manufacturers Association.

“The rule provides a consistent way to provide transparency regarding the foods we sell and allow[s] our customers across the country the means to learn more about grocery products containing bioengineered ingredients,” the institute noted in 2018.

But some supporters have also asked the Biden regime to delay the rule implementation deadline because of the still-worsening supply chain crisis that the current administration had a hand in worsening.

The regime “must take a ‘do no harm’ position right now that allows companies to focus on delivering for consumers,” said the Consumer Brands Association in a recent statement.

GMO foods, no matter what they are called, continue to be problematic for consumers.

For example, in 2019, a former Monsanto bioengineer-turned-whistleblower admitted that GMO potatoes he helped create attract all kinds of toxins, including those not found in the food crop before modification.

Dr. Caius Rommens, who spent six years in Monsanto’s disease control program and developed thousands of strains of GMO potatoes, found that most of them turned out to be mutated, sterile, short on chlorophyll, or stunted. How might this affect consumer health?

(自然新聞)轉基因食品——曾經被稱為“轉基因生物”或 GMO——現在將被稱為別的東西,所以當全球政府試圖隱藏它們時,你需要留意這個新術語。

具有諷刺意味的是,在元旦生效的美國“新食品披露規則”下,轉基因食品現在將被貼上“生物工程”標籤,因為重新命名長期以來與負面結果相關的東西只會被全球主義者稱為“披露”深度狀態。

據《大紀元時報》報導,食品製造商被要求在 1 月 1 日之前遵守新規定,這些規定實際上是在特朗普政府下制定和發布的。但在巴拉克奧巴馬上任的最後一年,國會通過了一項法律,該法律制定了“披露生物工程食品或可能是生物工程食品的國家標準”。

曾在特朗普手下任職的農業部長桑尼·珀杜 (Sonny Perdue) 說,國家標​​準“避免了可能讓消費者感到困惑的拼湊的州與州系統”。

同樣,“國家標準”現在意味著希望繼續使用更熟悉的“轉基因”標籤的各個州或地方現在將被禁止這樣做。雖然“生物工程”似乎是一個準確的術語,但它無疑會“迷失在洗牌中”,因為習慣於看到另一個術語的美國人最終可能會被新術語弄糊塗。

幸運的是,有些團體不僅反對這一改變,而且還向法院提起訴訟以阻止它,包括食品安全中心,該中心表示,標籤要求只會讓消費者感到困惑。

該中心執行董事安德魯·金布雷爾(Andrew Kimbrell)在一份聲明中說:“這些規定並不是要告知公眾,而是旨在允許企業向客戶隱瞞他們對基因工程成分的使用。” “這是一個監管騙局,我們正在尋求在聯邦法院撤銷。”

此外,有機貿易協會、農業與貿易政策研究所和非轉基因項目也都對新規則提出了反對意見。

“總體而言,許多含有轉基因生物的產品不會貼上標籤,這意味著沒有生物工程(BE)披露並不意味著產品是非轉基因產品,”該項目在新規則實施後的一份聲明中表示。

大紀元指出:

國會在《國家生物工程食品披露法》中要求食品製造商在產品含有生物工程成分的情況下,在標籤上放置文字、符號或二維碼等數字鏈接。立法者使用了生物工程一詞,但允許農業部使用類似的術語。然而,該機構選擇堅持生物工程。

然而,實際上有新法規的支持者,包括食品營銷協會和雜貨製造商協會等“食品行業”組織。

該研究所在 2018 年指出:“該規則提供了一種一致的方式來提供我們銷售的食品的透明度,並允許我們全國各地的客戶了解更多關於含有生物工程成分的雜貨產品的方法。”

但一些支持者也要求拜登政權推遲規則實施的最後期限,因為供應鏈危機仍在惡化,現任政府也參與其中。

消費者品牌協會在最近的一份聲明中表示,該制度“現在必須採取‘不傷害’的立場,讓公司能夠專注於為消費者提供服務。”

轉基因食品,無論叫什麼名字,對消費者來說仍然是個問題。

例如,2019 年,一位前孟山都生物工程師出身的舉報人承認,他幫助創造的轉基因馬鈴薯會吸引各種毒素,包括改良前糧食作物中未發現的毒素。

Caius Rommens 博士在孟山都的疾病控制計劃中工作了六年,並開發了數千種轉基因馬鈴薯品種,他發現其中大多數品種都發生了突變、不育、缺乏葉綠素或發育不良。這會如何影響消費者的健康?
