Why Center for Science in the Public Interest is Wrong Not to Support Genetically Engineered Food Labeling

You may have noticed the impressive grassroots movement gathering steam lately over the labeling of genetically engineered (GE) foods. Recently, Connecticut became the first state in the nation to enact a law to require such labels, and 26 other states have introduced similar bills this year. Millions of Americans are demanding more transparency in the food supply and our elected officials are finally responding, after decades of work by groups like Center for Food Safety. But one advocacy group, Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), often seen as a leader in nutrition policy, stands virtually alone in its continued opposition to labeling GE foods. This stance is troubling and confusing given how outspoken CSPI has been for decades on food labeling and consumer information.

  2. I’ve heard rumors that CSPI secretly receives funding from Monsanto. CSPI is aligned with several Monsanto front groups including the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics (formerly the American Dietetic Association). Maybe that’s the real reason CSPI has put out a lot of anti-Quorn propaganda on the web and in its Nutrition Action newsletter…maybe sales of Quorn threaten the sales of foods containing Monsanto’s Roundup Ready soybeans.
