Corporate Giant Comes Out Against GMOs

It has come to our attention that Kaiser Permanente, the largest managed healthcare organization in the United States, has advised its members against GMOs (genetically modified organisms) in food.

In its Northwest Fall 2012 newsletter, Kaiser suggested membership limit exposure to genetically modified organisms.

"GMOs have been added to our food supply since 1994, but most people don't know it because the United States does not require labeling of GMOs," according to the newsletter.

Sounding like a radical organic health proponent, the huge corporate Kaiser continued, "Despite what the biotech industry might say, there is little research on the long-term effects of GMOs on human health."
