  • “Genetically modified organisms are created
    artificially in a laboratory by swapping genetic
    material across species to exhibit traits not
    naturally theirs. Since a reasonable consumer
    assumes that seeds created in such a way
    are not ‘all natural,’ advertising Tostitos and
    SunChips as natural is deceptive and likely
    to mislead a reasonable consumer.”

    From a Current Lawsuit (See below)

    We’ve become The O-Bese Nation,
    snacking, our preoccupation.

    Snacks for dinner, snacks for lunch,
    snacks too salty, snacks to crunch.

    Snacks until now, bad enough,
    now there’s more disgusting stuff.

    Agribusiness now invades:
    Monsanto leading the parades.

    Think your snacks are ‘natural,’ healthy?
    Now we have genetics, stealthy,

    slipping in with toxic tech,
    which makes DNA a wreck.

    Fortunately, folks are suing,
    farmers mad, and scared cows mooing:

    “Take your Gee- Mo’s, we resist!
    We are pushing back. We’re pissed!”

    “Natural” is just a ruse.
    Friends, we have a right to choose.

    But we need to know the truth,
    not that made-up lying ‘poof.’

    We won’t snack unless we know,
    snacks are free from GMO!

    Time to OCCUPY OUR FOOD!
    Let’s get healthy! OK, Dude?
