Just this past Sunday, Amy Harmon, a Pulitzer prize winning NYT writer, did a great story about a Hawaii County Councilman’s journey through what I call the fear mongering jungle here in our state. It is something that many of our politicians should read about to get through the fact vs. the fiction around the issue. It is a long read but covers through many of the statements that one has heard in testimonies from the anti-GMO activists. It also points out to the resources that debunk many of those same claims.
It is of no surprise that the anti-GMO activists have jumped on this story. Their retorts on this is far from facts but once again at personal attacks. Just take a look at what Food Democracy Now posted about it on their Facebook page.
This kind of tactic only proves more and more that there is no facts or evidence in the so called GMO debates. It’s based on conspiracy theories, propaganda, and fear mongering when they have to come down to this level.
