The issue was genetically modified organisms, or GMOs as they're often known in the food industry. And members of the subcommittee on Horticulture, Research, Biotechnology, and Foreign Agriculture, as well as their four experts, agreed that the genetic engineering of food crops has been a thorough success responsible for feeding the hungry, improving nutrition and reducing the use of pesticides.
Comment: 'Genetic Engineering of food crops had been a thorough success' Seriously?! Could the lies spouted by the Biotechnology industry get anymore ridiculous? In particular the claims about GMO's 'improving nutrition and reducing the use of pesticides' The following articles are just a few examples totally discrediting the 'statements' of the subcommittee on Horticulture, Research, Biotechnology, and Foreign Agriculture:

People who oppose GMOs or want them labeled so that consumers can know what they're eating are alarmists who thrive on fear and ignorance, the panel agreed. Labeling GMO foods would only stoke those fears, and harm a beneficial thing, so it should not be allowed, the lawmakers and witnesses agreed.
