California Court Supports New Labelling Requirements for Roundup

California is fighting in the courts to be the first state to require Monsanto to label its popular weed-killer Roundup as a possible cancer hazard.

Monsanto said California officials illegally based their decision for carrying the warnings on an international health organization based in France. The corporation's attorney Trenton Norris argued in court that the labels would have immediate financial consequences for the company stating many consumers would see the labels and stop buying Roundup. But the judge ruled against Monsanto's claim in January 2017.

Consumer vs Goliath

Two local mothers from California who claimed Nutella deceived consumers by marketing their product as “healthy” won a class-action lawsuit against the food manufacturer of the chocolatey hazelnut spread, Ferrero USA, Inc.

Just Say No

It looks like there is finally some real opposition against genetically engineered foods.

Vermont, California, Michigan and Washington are all working on ballot initiatives to get mandatory labelling of genetically modified (GM) foods in their states. Vermont takes it a step further though, as the legislation would effectively also end phoney "all natural" claims for products that contain wholly unnatural, GMOs.

Unknowingly consumers have allowed Monsanto and other biotech companies to saturate the market with their genetically altered food additives. The misuse of the "all natural" label has only made matters worse.
