Loaʻa nā palapala e US Right to Know a me nā kumuwaiwai ʻē aʻe e hoʻomālamalama i ka hana o loko o ka ʻAha ʻAha ʻIke Meaʻai Mea Kai (IFIC), kahi hui kālepa i kālā kālā ʻia e nā ʻoihana nui a me nā ʻoihana mahiʻai, a me kāna mea kōkua ʻole "lima aʻo lehulehu" ka Hoʻokumu IFIC. Mālama nā hui IFIC i nā papahana noiʻi a me ka hoʻomaʻamaʻa, hana i nā mea kūʻai aku a hoʻohui i nā hui ʻoihana ʻē aʻe e kamaʻilio i ka wili ʻoihana e pili ana i ka palekana o ka meaʻai a me ka meaʻai. ʻO ka leka ʻana me ka paipai ʻana a me ka pale ʻana i ke kō, nā meaʻai i hana ʻia, nā mea hoʻonaninani ʻino, nā mea hoʻohui meaʻai, nā mea pesticides a me nā meaʻai i hoʻopololei ʻia.

ʻO ka hōʻike ʻana i ka maʻi ʻaʻai pesticide no Monsanto 

Ma ke ʻano he laʻana e pili ana i nā hui ʻo IFIC me nā ʻoihana e hoʻolaha i nā huahana mahiʻai a pale i nā hopohopo no ka maʻi ʻaʻai palapala Monsanto kūloko hōʻike iā IFIC ma ke ʻano he “ʻOihana hoa hana” ma ka hoʻolālā pilina lehulehu o Monsanto e hoʻowahāwahā i ka hui noiʻi maʻi ʻaʻai o ka World Health Organization, ka International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), e "pale i ka inoa maikaʻi" o Roundup weedkiller. I Malaki 2015, ua hoʻoholo ʻo IARC i ka glyphosate, ka mea nui i Roundup carcinogenic paha i nā kānaka.

Ua helu ʻo Monsanto iā IFIC ma ke ʻano he "ʻoihana ʻoihana" ʻo Tier 3 me ʻelua mau pūʻulu kālā i hoʻolako ʻia i ka ʻoihana meaʻai, ka ʻAhahui Mea Hana Mea Kūʻai Meaʻai a me ka Kikowaena no ka Pono Pono.

Pehea e hoʻāʻo ai ʻo IFIC e haʻi i kāna leka i nā wahine.

Ua ʻike ʻia nā pūʻulu ma ke ʻano he ʻāpana o kahi "Stakeholder Engagement team" i hiki ke makaʻala i nā ʻoihana meaʻai i kā Monsanto "papa hana inoculation" no ka hōʻike maʻi ʻaʻai glyphosate.

Kau ʻia nā blog ma hope Pūnaewele IFIC e kahaki i ka patronizing o ka hui “mai hopohopo, paulele iā mākou” leka i nā wahine. Komo pū nā mea komo, "8 mau ʻano pupule a lākou e hoʻāʻo nei e hoʻoweliweli iā ʻoe e pili ana i nā hua a me nā mea kanu," "Ke ʻoki ʻana i nā mea ma luna o ka glyphosate," a me "Ma mua o ka pīhoihoi, e nīnau aku i ka poʻe loea ... nā loea maoli."

ʻO nā palapala ʻauhau kikoʻī no ka IFIC Foundation, i loaʻa ma o nā noi palapala hoʻopaʻa mokuʻāina, e papa inoa i nā ʻoihana i hoʻolako kālā i ka hui i 2011, 2013 a i ʻole ʻelua: ʻAhahui Mea Kūʻai Meaʻai, Coca-Cola, ConAgra, General Mills, Kellogg, Kraft Foods, Hershey, Mars, Nestle, PepsiCo a me Unilever.

Hoʻohui ʻia ʻo IFIC Nā'āpana 130 ma o ka Alliance e hānai i ka wā e hiki mai ana i nā hana leka ʻana e "hoʻomaikaʻi i ka hoʻomaopopo" e pili ana i nā meaʻai i hana ʻenekini ʻia. Hoʻopili nā lālā i ka ʻAha ʻAmelika no ka ʻepekema a me ke olakino, ka ʻAha Kālā Kalena, ka Kikowaena no ka Pono Pono a me The Conservancy Kūlohelohe.

Ma kahi kokoke i 90% o ko ʻAmelika e ʻōlelo i nā ʻenekini genetically pono e kapa inoa ʻia, me ke kākoʻo kiʻekiʻe ma waena o nā makahiki āpau, nā lāhui a me nā pili politika, e like me kahi Kekemapa 2015 Koho polū ʻo Mellman Group. He paʻakikī e noʻonoʻo i kahi hihia politika e kaʻana like ana i kēia hoʻopiʻi ākea. ʻO ka hilinaʻi i kā mākou kuleana e ʻike i nā mea i loko o kā mākou meaʻai e like me ʻAmelika e like me ka pai ʻāpala.

I kēia manawa, ma hope o ke kaua hakakā paʻakikī i alakaʻi ʻia e miliona o nā mea kūʻai a me nā hui kaiapili, olakino a me nā mea kūʻai aku nui loa o ka lāhui, ke lanakila nei mākou i kēlā kuleana. ʻO nā hui meaʻai nui mai Nā Mills nui i Kellogg i ʻO Campbell's 'ōlelo lākou ke kau nei lākou i nā lepili i nā huahana meaʻai e hōʻike inā hana ʻia lākou me ka hana ʻenekini.

ʻO Senokalaka Demokarata, alakaʻi ʻia e ka Democrat Demokarata ʻo Debbie Stabenow, e hana ana i kahi ʻaelike e hōʻoki ana i ka lepili ʻana o GMO i kāna ala?

spaghettiosKe hoʻonui nei ka ʻoihana mahiʻai i ka US Senate i kēia manawa me kahi hana lobbying hope loa e hoʻopau i ka Hana ʻo DARK (Deny ʻAmelika i ka Pono e ʻike), a laila hoʻopau i nā hana labeling mokuʻāina. He mau pule wale nō lākou i koe e hana i kēia ma mua o ka hoʻokō ʻana o Vermont i ke kānāwai GMO ʻōlima mua o ka lāhui Iulai 1.

Ua hala ka Hale o nā Lunamakaʻāinana i ke Kānāwai DARK i ka makahiki i hala. Ua haʻi ʻo Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) i kēlā manawa i ka a CNN op ed, "ʻO ka ʻoiaʻiʻo e noʻonoʻo ana ka ʻahaʻōlelo i kahi noi e hōʻole i ka ʻike o ka poʻe ʻAmelika e pili ana i kā lākou meaʻai e ʻōlelo nei i ka mana nui o kēia poʻe lobbyist ʻoihana no ka pono o ka lehulehu."

Aia nā maka āpau i kēia manawa iā Sen. Stabenow, nāna, e like me ka Hōʻike Hagstrom, ua hāpai wale i ka ʻōlelo hou no kahi "kuʻikahi." ʻAʻole paha hoʻokomo kēia i nā code QR, kahi helu 800, a i ʻole kekahi ala ʻē aʻe e koi ai i ka lepili "mandatory" ʻoiai e ʻae ana i nā ʻoihana meaʻai e hoʻopau i nā huaʻōlelo "genekinia genetika" mai nā lepili hou e hele nei i kahi hale kūʻai kokoke iā ʻoe .

Murky nā kikoʻī e pili ana i ka manaʻo kuikahi. Akā hoʻokahi mea maopopo: ʻoiai ka Democrat kūlana kiʻekiʻe ma ke Kōmike Hoʻomohala Senate, ua paʻa ʻo Sen. Stabenow i nā kī e hoʻoholo ai inā ʻaʻole e maopopo ka maopopo o ka poʻe ʻAmelika, nā lepili GMO ma nā pūʻulu e koi ʻia ma 64 mau ʻāina ʻē aʻe a puni ka honua.

Ke hana nei nā ʻaoʻao ʻelua i ka mea e hiki ai ke hoʻohuli iā ia. E like me Ua hōʻikeʻiaʻo Politico, ua mālama nā alakaʻi ʻoihana meaola i kahi kālā no Sen. Stabenow i Malaki, he mau lā wale nō ma mua o ke koho balota hope loa ma ke Kānāwai DARK, a ua hāʻawi nā alakaʻi ʻoihana meaola i mau tausani kālā i kāna huakaʻi ma 2015 a me 2016.

ʻO kahi loiloi o ka waiho ʻana o ke Kōmike Koho Koho Pekelala no nā manawaleʻa i kā Sen. Stabenow huakaʻi mai nā hui a me nā hui kalepa i nā makahiki he ʻelima i hala i loaʻa iki mai ka ʻoihana ʻokanika - hoʻokahi wale nō manawaleʻa mai ka Organic Trade Association ma 2012 no $ 2,500.

ʻO nā meaʻai nui, nā mea kemika a me nā agribusiness, ʻoiai, hāʻawi manawaleʻa ma kahi o $ 100,000 i kāna huakaʻi i kēlā manawa, me kahi $ 60,000 i hui pū ʻia mai Monsanto, DuPont, Pepsi, Coca-Cola, Dow, Kraft, Bayer a me ConAgra.

ʻO kēlā mau ʻoihana i waena o nā mea hāʻawi he 10 kiʻekiʻe i nā hoʻolaha kūʻē anti-labeling i lilo ma luna o $ 100 miliona e hoʻokahuli i nā hoʻomaka balota o GMO i Kaleponi, Wakinekona, Oregon a me Kaleponi - e hoʻohana ana i nā hana hoʻopunipuni e hana pēlā, e like me nā mea leka mai nā pūʻulu mua hoʻopunipuni, hoopii wahahee i nā hoʻolaha a me nā alakaʻi koho, aʻo ka mea nui loa hana hoʻolimalima kālā i ka mōʻaukala koho balota o Wakinekona Mokuʻāina.

No ke aha makaʻu kēia mau ʻoihana e hāʻawi i ka poʻe ʻAmelika i kahi koho kūpono e pili ana i nā GMO i kā mākou meaʻai?

Ke hoʻouna nei nā hui agribusiness nui i ka leka ʻaʻole ia o kā mākou ʻoihana ka mea i loko o kā mākou meaʻai a pehea e hana ai. Ua aʻo ʻia e ka mea pena kiʻi politika ʻo Rick Friday kēlā haʻawina i ke ala paʻakikī i kona wā hou kipaku ʻia mai kāna hana o 21 mau makahiki ma Iowa's Farm News no ke kuhikuhi ʻana i loko o kahi katuna ʻO kēlā mau luna kiʻekiʻe ma Monsanto, DuPont Pioneer a me John Deere i loaʻa kālā hou i ka makahiki i hala ma mua o 2,129 mau mahiʻai Iowa.

He aha hou aʻe ʻaʻole makemake ai kēia mau ʻoihana e ʻike e pili ana i kā mākou meaʻai?

ʻO ka ʻoiaʻiʻo, ʻo ka hapanui o nā mea kanu ʻenekini e hoʻolālā ʻia e ola i nā lāʻau make kemika, maikaʻi loa ia no nā pono o ka hui kemika akā ʻaʻole maikaʻi loa no nā mahiʻai a me nā ʻohana ma nā kaiāulu ulu o GMO e like me Hawaii, Argentina a me Iowa - a i ʻole no ke koena o mākou e ʻai nei i ka meaʻai i kēlā me kēia lā i kēlā loaʻa ka glyphosate, ka mea i hoʻokaʻawale ʻia ma carcinogenic paha i nā kānaka e ka paneli maʻi maʻi o ka World Health Organization.

ʻO ka nūhou maikaʻi, ʻo ka koi o nā mea kūʻai aku no ka transparency ua nui loa ka leo e hōʻole.

Ua kūleʻa nā kipi mokuʻāina no ka lepili GMO i ke aʻo ʻana i nā miliona o ka poʻe i kā mākou mea kanu mea ʻai nui a genetically engineered me ka transparency. ʻO ka kānāwai hōʻailona inoa ʻo Vermont kahi lanakila no ka lāhui a ke hele nei nā ʻoihana meaʻai i ka lepili ʻana i nā GMO no ka manawa mua ma ka mōʻaukala US.

Inā kūleʻa ka lobby mahiʻai i ka hoʻokuke ʻana i ka Democrats e ʻae i kahi hana Dark Act e pili ana i nā mea i ʻoi aku ka emi ma mua o ka labelling on-package, e hoʻomanaʻo mau loa ʻia ʻo Sen.
