    Are the following not a conflict of interest that makes our government more prone to endorse pro-Monsanto policies?

    Michael Taylor, former Monsanto Vice President, is now the FDA Deputy Commissioner for Foods.

    Roger Beachy, former director of the Monsanto-funded Danforth Plant Science Center, is now the director of the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture.

    Islam Siddiqui, Vice President of the Monsanto and Dupont-funded pesticide-promoting lobbying group, CropLife, is now the Agriculture Negotiator for the US Trade Representative.

    Is this not in fact a method of skewing our government towards allowing Monsanto's policies to become U.S. policy?

    Your point about obesity is well taken. Studies have shown that chemicals and toxins play a role in obesity. Labeling obesity a "disease" tends to obfuscate the fact that people's endocrine systems and metabolisms can be thrown off by chemicals, toxins, and food additives...and scientists are now saying that gmos may play a role in disrupting endocrine and cellular function as well.

    Not in a statist run country. Ceo's will tell you that is capitalism. No it isnt. All that matters is who has the most money or who can make you the most. There is no integrity at the FDA, USDA, AMA. The AMA recently called obesity a disease. WHICH IS LUDICROUS. How convenient fat pills from other pharmaceuticals have recently had approval to sell to the open market. The gov't does NOT have your best interest at hand unless you can make the money. It is no different with Monsanto. Corporate fascism at its finest.
