Ted Cruz sided with Hillary Clinton on GMO labeling during an agricultural summit in Iowa, stating that over 90% of Americans who want GMOs labeled are acting on "anti-science zealotry."
Senator Cruz said the nation should fight against the "hysteria" over genetically modified organisms, saying such positive innovations should be celebrated in science.
Stating that GMOs help globally provide food for the hungry and strengthen farms nationwide, Mr. Cruz said GMOs play a viral role at home throughout the rest of the world. However, he also admit that it's fine to oppose GMOs and to eat organic.
People who decide that is what they want, they can pay for it already, but we shouldn't let anti-science zealotry shutdown the ability to produce low-cost quality food for billions across the globe,
said Senator Cruz.
Of course Cruz believes such theories, as he can afford organic food for every meal every day.
Monsanto is reputable for damaging the Earth and farming systems n enormous ways, such as negatively affecting cross pollination, toxicity, weed resistance, plant life, insects, soil regeneration, and more.
Besides hurting the environment, Monsanto's large corporate funded farms are running small organic and local farms out of business, even upping the price of organic produce, which in turn makes it more unattainable in the end.
With Monsanto continueing to grab endorsements from politicians like Hillary Clinton and Ted Cruz, it is apparent that corporate influence is at an all time high in this election process. Despite Bernie Sanders speaking up for GMO labeling, most politicians are siding with Monsanto. As saying GMO activists are "anti-science" is a popular defense from Monsanto, it would not be surprising to find that Cruz may have been preped to make such comments.
