Do we really need to worry about terrorist attacks so much, when our own government is slowly making us ill and disease ridden?

IN A PICKLE: Groups Take Fake Claims to Court
Under both federal and state law, it’s illegal to engage in deceptive marketing. This is a broad concept that applies to any entity that advertises. The idea is that consumers should not be swindled into buying a product; they deserve the straight facts to make informed purchasing decisions. And while such laws do help deter shady activities, deceptive marketing statutes get violated all the time, mostly due to lack of enforcement.
It may be unsettling to realize that on grocery store shelves right now are likely hundreds of food products that contain illegal deceptive claims. While the federal government does have specific definitions for some phrases such as “low fat” or “low salt,” otherwise almost anything goes on the front of a food package because the feds have turned a blind eye. Without proper government oversight, the only recourse is for private law firms to set these companies straight.
This is so deceptive!! Natural??? I think not. It can be quite challenging for the everyday person to know what is healthy for them and what is not. It is hard to know which companies use GMO’s in their food. Thankfully there are some apps being created to help accomodate us, the consumers! Try Buycott and also Fooducate. They are both free, and both warn you which foods contain GMO’s or other harmful ingredients!
Fuck you, Luddite.
The second and third panels may have a point; I’m no supporter of the influence Monsanto et al wield over Congress (or Washington as a whole) through their lobbying, but Fitzsimmons starts off on the wrong foot with the classic ‘Frankenfood’ fearmongering bullshit and that ruins it for me.
