Melania Trump Bans Monsanto Products From The White House

First Lady Melania Trump has banned Monsanto products from her household after learning of the health effects associated with consuming genetically modified (GM) corn.

First Lady Melania Trump has banned Monsanto products from the White House after learning of the health effects associated with consuming genetically modified (GM) corn, according to reports.

While public debate rages about the safety of genetically modified food, Melania Trump says that as far as she is concerned, GM products are best avoided.

Barron’s health has improved out of sight since we started eating organic, non genetically modified food,” the First Lady said.

After researching exactly where Monsanto’s genetically modified corn appeared in her family’s diet and becoming concerned about potential negative health effects, Melania Trump said she was “amazed at the place this company has in the food chain“.

The First Lady, who proudly describes herself as a “full-time mom“, then realized that Monsanto produces other genetically modified crops such as soy, sugar beets, and cotton – and these products form the foundation of many American’s diets.

In the interests of her son Barron’s health – as well as her own – Melania decided to eliminate processed foods containing GM crops from her family home.

But as Melania explained, this wasn’t as easy as it sounds. 70 to 80 percent of American processed foods contain genetically engineered ingredients, according to the Grocery Manufacturers of America.

While the FDA attempts to convince us that GM foods are safe, scientists working for the agency have repeatedly warned that the opposite is true.

These brave FDA scientists, speaking out against the official company line pushed by their corrupt superiors, have repeatedly warned that GM foods can create unpredictable, hard-to-detect side effects, including allergies, toxins, new diseases, and nutritional problems.

They have urged long-term safety studies, but have been ignored by the agency.

Health Risks

Several animal studies indicate serious health risks associated with genetically modified food, including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulation, and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system. The American Academy of Environmental Medicine has asked physicians to advise all patients to avoid GM foods.

Yet since 1996, Americans have been eating GM ingredients in most processed foods. Why isn’t the FDA protecting us?

The sad fact is that we cannot rely on the FDA to protect us. We must do our own research and educate ourselves.

[High Fructose Corn Syrup Quietly, Deceitfully Renamed]

In the First Lady’s case, her self-education led to her total ban on Monsanto tainted products in her household, exclusively ordering organic products that were not grown with GM seeds.

Melania said that in order to live up to the commitment she had to do a lot of research.

I have a friend who is a sustainable food advocate, and I got in touch with dozens of health food stories and manufacturers to ask where they sourced their products,” the First Lady said.

In order to completely avoid Monsanto products, the consumer must research the origins of their food.

I spent a lot of time at farmers’ markets asking farmers what seed companies they buy from, googling on my phone before making purchases.

“It took a few months but I finally managed to get Monsanto out of my life completely.

The influence that Monsanto has over U.S. food production is profound, and deeply disturbing. Once you start looking, you realize that Monsanto is everywhere. And, unfortunately, their influence is not benign.

But as Melania Trump says, once you educate yourself and then make the effort to avoid Monsanto, you will find peace of mind, and the health of your family will improve.

    Bravo, Madam First Lady.

  • Barbara Brown

    And what of us in the “surplus population”?? The fact is the average family can not afford to avoid this crap, and since POLITICIANS conveniently slapped down any labeling requirements it is more difficult every day to identify where this insidious stuff is hiding. When are the elites going to start following the will of the people? When do WE get to be concerned for the health of our families?

    • Dora Collier

      Go Organic with foods.

      • tbs

        Grow your own like I do!

        • Anti

          Yes good idea, we just need to stop the spraying of alluminium and other chemicals in the chemtails, as well as nano particles to add to the misery,that are causing problems for none GMO foods trees etc in places now, all part of , Control the food and you control the people. These people are insane and run it all at present.

    • Anti

      The negative elite will never even hear the will of the people , we are of no interest to them other than to have any wealth stripped from us as well as any private property, which is coming down the pipe with their Agenda 21 crap for us all, but them of course, they can have wealth and private luxury properties all over the globe, after all they are exceptional.. exceptional evil satanic husks of inhumans that is.

    • Anti

      LOL… The elite dont even consider you worthy of their thought, its all for them, If they get their Agenda 21 which is taking people off thir land already and poking them into little boxes in new towns, then eventually when they have their one world governance you will more than likely be sent off to the reduction canps, which are already set up and reay, where the population is going to be reduced to clear the land of humans in vast areas of USA called the ‘Wildlands’… look it up.. really demented what they have planned,and we are not needed in thier plans.

      • Linda Snyder

        I think that was what the NWO was hoping for. Obummer is not running things now.

    • orthorim

      As soon as you wake up and don’t buy the crap anymore. You can very well avoid the crap, go with organic and non GMO only. It’ll cost more for sure, but not that much more, and the more people buy organic the more economies of scale will set in and drive down prices.

      It’s NWO propaganda that organic would be too expensive. Total nonsense. It is expensive now because of economies of scale and regulation requirements.

  • Barbara Brown

    I don’t think Mr. Trump is too awfully concerned about the REST of the families in America….Perhaps he should listen to his wife instead of his INVESTORS!

    • Anti

      LOL as if, by the look of those two there is a battle going on, she aint happy by his sucking up to rothschilds zioisrael..

  • Anti

    But the rest of us are made to eat it, whilst they drive Organic farmers out of business and make us eat these abominations of poisoned foods.
    The trumps and ALL the politicians should be made to eat what we have to, we would soon see a rise in food nutrient values and less chemical poisoning of soil and grains and meat.

    • Suzanne Graziano

      You don’t have to eat the poisoned food out there that’s in fast foods anymore than they do. You have a choice to research it as well and purchase organic goods now in your markets. I eat organic, it costs a little more, but keeps you healthy and out of the doctors office and hospitals which cost a hell of a lot more. Eat healthy, go to Sprouts Market or Whole Foods to shop.

      • Anti

        and when the FDA have stopped all organic farmers what are you going to eat then, in some insane parts of Murika you cannot grow vegetables in your own garden, , so good luck with sitting feeling smug..

        • Verna Brightwell

          Where, in America are you not allowed to grow vegetables in your garden? Vegetables reside in ornamental gardens beautifully & I know of NO law disallowing them. Patio planters will grow great tomatoes & lettuces…just give me a source to your information.

        • Aaron Aveiro

          What did you bump your head on????

    • Robert Belcastro

      Don’t you see? This is a MAJOR step to eliminating the bad food. Remember that M. Obama started out this way and B. O. made her stop. Then came the support for monsanto. Now the tide is turning! The support from the White House is against Monsanto and let’s capitalize on that and get more people to stop using monsanto’s junk food.

    • Ray, Cancer Survivor

      Trump pays for his own food so he can eat what he wants.

      • Anti

        Yes he can but it wont be long before you cannot,you wont have achoice what you can get, have you even heard of Agenda 21??? no i thought not..

        • DebiAnn

          Have heard of it and it has been going since the 90s. Allowed into our country by Clinton. We MUST vote those into office who would rid us of such foolishness…”Today, nearly all federal programs dealing with land management, education, environment and much more are linked to Agenda 21 through Sustainable America.” http://www.cfact.org/2014/04/15/agenda-21-what-agenda-21/

          • Aaron Aveiro

            Actually the girst bush opened the door…bush and clinton all the same

          • Gmo Roberts

            You and any sick perv? All the same.

  • monica

    She should ban it from USA

    • Anti

      same as Obombers ‘wife’ but what good did that do??? Nothing , same here.

  • Woodlawnbx

    So we have known for a while gmofoods and Monsanto are poisoning the western world and yet our previous presidents have allowed this. So yall are mad because finally someone in the Whitehouse is making a stand against this??? It’s not up to the president to make sure you eat organic take the matters of health into your own hands, educate yourself and make the proper choices. Vote with your dollar instead of complaining about Trump and waiting for someone to spoon feed you.

    • Karin Elise Fletcher

      Thank you!!!

    • Robin Stafford Aslakson

      You do realize that healthy eating and having a healthy lifestyle was a major platform of Michelle Obama’s? I sure hope you weren’t one of the people that trashed her whenever she talked about improving school lunches and introducing more fruits, vegetables, less sugars and less fats, plus more exercise for students in America. Over 30% of our students today are obese. She also encouraged more Community Gardens in the urban areas. Many people in these areas lack access to fresh fruits and vegetables. I also applaud Melania Trump for continuing to encourage all Americans to eat healthy and be aware of what they are putting in their body.

      • Jeff Allen

        lets see, she forced garbage onto our kids plates at school while our first family’s daughters ate gourmet meals at their school. yeah i can see where you might find that to be acceptable as a blind liberal

        • ListenToBothSides

          So true. I work in a high school, and as a teacher I would not eat that garbage, nor would my students. And the poor kids were always starving after lunch, almost 80% of the students receive free lunch, and they wouldn’t eat it, and couldn’t afford to bring their own lunch. (Or were too lazy to) As a teacher I would bring in snacks by the boxful (Never reimbursed) to give to those students that really were very hungry and could not make it through the day.

          • Jeff Allen

            i make sure my daughter always takes her lunch to school

          • UnderTheBedMonster

            Most stuff kids bring for lunch at school is not refrigerated….other than PB&J what choices do they have? NONE!!!! There are no community fridges at a school where a student could put their lunches in until lunchtime. Would you like to eat PB&J every day? No.

            Eating Moochie’s lunchs for a normal kid was not right….so they didn’t eat that “stuff”…..even if it was free. And as far as her wanting more exercise…try most schools have banned gym class period…..so there is no more exercise at school but do it at home while you use your cellphone I guess.

          • AuntieFran

            We froze the milk and sandwiches that went into our children’s lunch boxes — and that was 50 years ago! Have people no common sense any more?

          • Jeff Allen

            apparently they dont. i use blue ice in my daughters lunch box, keeps everything cold

          • marmar

            There are insulated containers that keep lunches got it cold.

          • frank

            In all my years of k-12+, I never refrigerated my lunches, never brought pbj an never got sick from food poisoning. What is the point you are trying to make?

          • D DDDD

            The school lunch program was not a mandate. Your school chose to adopt it in order to receive federal funds. The menu was meant to replace processed junk with fresh foods and whole grains. Place the blame where it belongs, with your cafeteria supervisor’s lack of menu creativity.

          • Jeff Allen

            you just stepped on your own answer dumbass, if the schools didnt comply they lost funding

          • Willy Maykit

            >>>The school lunch program was not a mandate. Your school chose to adopt it in order to receive federal funds.>>>

            Ending sanctuary cities is NOT a mandate…your city can choose to adopt it in order to receive federal funds.

          • D DDDD

            So were the snacks fresh fruits or boxes of processed junk?

          • Debra McCawley

            I recommend Google.

          • slbf21

            This was the dumbest thing. If your really gonna try to make it healthier then don’t give kids crap they won’t eat!! Sad knowing she literally was the reason these kids went hungry all day!!

        • https://twitter.com/MetroIssues Metro Issues

          That’s baseless nonsense.

          • Jeff Allen

            its not baseless nonsense and you know it. its sad that you would lie for that racist monster

          • https://twitter.com/MetroIssues Metro Issues

            It’s baseless nonsense. And a black person in America cannot be racist by definition. I have seen no bigotry in Michelle Obama ever, and I am pretty sensitive to that.

          • JT

            That’s crazy. 🙂 Racism is not defined by your color. Of course black people can be racist. My black friends say that blacks are generally much more racist than whites. Hate is not tied to one race darling… all races are guilty.

            stop drinking the kool ade and look up the definition of racist and tell me that again

          • sketchtone6

            Metro Issues > “”a black person in america cannot be racist””
            what are you, high? blacks are every bit as racist as any other color of people are.

          • Brian Koehler

            How is it that a black person can’t be racist?

          • Kate V

            Which definition of racism were you going by? The dictionary definition or the marxist definition as taught in most universities today? Let’s see…

            racism
            1. prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior.
            2. the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.

          • Keeping It Real

            You’re a true blue dyed in the wool idiot if you really believe that a black person in America cannot be a racist. That is seriously the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard.

          • Jeff Allen

            your a full of shit liberal, anyone can be racist. if you dont like someone because of their skin color you are racist

          • D DDDD

            Racist monster? You?

          • Jeff Allen

            and you’re a baseless liberal

        • D DDDD

          You call fresh foods and whole grains garbage? What do you eat? Junk?

          • Jeff Allen

            why dont you go suck michell’s dick and leave the rest of the world alone

        • frank

          What is “forced” onto plates in the ps is dictated by the local school board. If the public prefers to spend its monies on frivolous things like big houses, cable tv, cellphones for young kids, fancy clothing, etc. instead of wholesome food, then oh well. Perhaps they ought to be prevented from propagating.

          • Jeff Allen

            you should be prohibited from propagating

          • frank

            You seem to be off topic. What’s your issue with what I said?

          • Jeff Allen

            the local school board has followed michelles suggestions for fear of losing federal funding . as far as how people spend their money thats their money, they pay property taxes and spend considerably more in school expenses. if you are thinking that just because they arent property owners so they dont pay property taxes you would be wrong. im pretty sure the rent that they pay also pays the property taxes because i guarantee you that landlords arent going to absorb that expense. so if a parent wants to provide cable tv, cell phones, or fancy clothes thats on them. my daughter’s lunch is sent with her everyday but thats my choice and its mostly because of the garbage that is served at school. if the law requires that kids be there through a meal time its their responsibility to feed them a delicious nutritional meal during said time. and for you to think otherwise is why i said you shouldnt be allowed to have your own children

      • Helena

        I’d agree if she didn’t force crap on our kids. Her platform was a great one….the follow thru was uninformed, unmanaged and lazy.

        • frank

          The follow thru, and the original food choices, were both dictated by the local school board. That is their job. If you have issues with that, then join the board or at least attend their meetings and make your voice heard. M Obama just hoisted the idea up the flagpole.

      • Tammy Summers

        Yet her own daughters didn’t eat the lunches Ms. O was forcing on public schools. Her daughters don’t exactly live the healthiest lifestyles either, lol! I know people who work in school cafeterias and all she did was cause a lot of extra work for them to prepare food that the MAJORITY of kids threw out. So much waste!

        • Harley

          Her daughters were not in public schools so why would they eat those lunches? And how do you know what her daughters eat and how often they work out their bodies?? YOU DONT!

          • Tammy Summers
          • Harley

            and your an idiot to think the presidents kids would eat the same food. considering many kids bring their lunch to school who have the means.

            You just cant admit that Michelle was promoting healthy living…….

          • Tammy Summers

            She may have been promoting one, but, like Obamacare, it was wasteful and costly. That’s the Yobanas in a nutshell. Worst couple in the presidency, EVER! They have no class and refuse to graciously step aside as all previous presidents have done.

          • Harley

            Your obviously delusional…. because Reagan and his wife’s war on drugs was really them bringing it into the communities… and Bush was just dumb… just like Dump…. I can smell your a racist from here.

          • Tammy Summers

            My niece is black. I wanted Alan Keyes as president and then I was going to vote for Ben Carson. You’re the Nazi racist, and a whack job as well!

            So you know about the Reagan’s personally, do you? . That’s an asinine statement. I was there. I know it’s a lie. How about all of the illegal drug dealers Obama let in. The gangs killing Americans. I have two black grandsons so the racist crap doesn’t fly with me.

          • Ria Pendergrass

            And don’t forget the drug dealers he pardoned who were serving long prison sentences. smh

          • Verna Brightwell

            Harley, I just realized since you are so biased & unwilling to even open your mind a little, I think this must be your job. Are you one of the thousands being paid to cause dissension & trying to spew so much stupidity against everyone but Democrats? I hope they pay you well because it’s costing you your honor. You aren’t doing anything to change minds any more than our arguing with you is going to do. Some people are either desperate for the money they’ll be paid or just too foolish to understand how much better off they’ll be with President Trump in office.

          • Jan Kerrick

            I am not paid by anyone, and think your broadbrush answers are not congruent with the actual events happening in the USA. Do you REALLY think that Trump is doing better than Obama at this particular moment in history? Seriously. NATO? EPA? NEPOTISM? OBSTRUCTING JUSTICE? MUSLIM BANS #1 AND #2? ACCELERATED RISE OF WHITE SUPREMACY? INFINITE CROWD SIZE COMPARISONS? INAPPROPRIATE TWEETS? BETSY DEVOS AND JEFF SESSIONS? et al. So there’s work to be done by Trump before you compare #44 and #45. If I am willing to give Trump a chance, you could, at a minimum, stop trashing Obama for a minute and look at his record with fresh eyes.

          • Tammy McAbee Brookover

            I was one of the people who bought and paid for our families health insurance without government assistance. Obama’s record….cost me health insurance for my family. The premiums and deductibles went up so high, I was paying for something I never used. It got to the point that I had to choose between the premilums which kept going up or our necessary bills…electricity, mortgage…etc. The millions of people who were thrilled with Obamacare were the ones who got it free at the expense of others who could no longer pay for it, but had to pay the fine to contribute to their free health care. I am not alone…there are many millions of people just like me. I know a family that their premiums went up to over $2400.00 a MONTH from the $900.00 they paid before Obamacare! Really, who can afford that? So when you talk looking at his record with fresh eyes….yea, we did that.

          • D DDDD

            Insurance companies used the ACA as an excuse to raise premiums and deductibles. Look at the differences in executive salaries and bonuses before and after ACA.

          • Jan Kerrick

            See, that’s just not going to fly with me. I like to think I am fairly open-minded. There is no way a knowledgeable person would say the Obama Administration was the worst ever. Someone needed to step up on the healthcare system here, and President Obama did that. As you can easily see from protests, there are many who appreciate the ACA. It is now up to Trump and Congress to come up with improvements. And destroying the EPA isn’t the smartest of ideas. I truly believe that Obama had great intentions and did the best to follow through with a weak Congress. So far Trump has done a lot of irresponsible things, but am hopeful they can pull it together to give the country a chance. But self-interest have to be put aside.

          • https://twitter.com/MetroIssues Metro Issues

            Actually, health insurance was skyrocketing in costs before Obamacare/ACA, and the ACA slowed it down. Also, Michelle’s promotions had barely a cost to them, compared to most other government functions. And then you go on to lie about the Obamas, and also not accept they can act and speak as full citizens. Why would you deprive them of that? Could it be because…..

          • Dorothy Coleman

            Michelle was responsible for American’s public school children going hungry for most of the day. My dog would not touch the food she pushed on our children. They basically threw it in the trash as not fit for human consumption. When I saw these lunches I was appalled. She knew this and did it anyway. What kind of sick person would be so cruel to little children. I think she hates them as AMERICAN children!

          • Marshi L Anthony

            I worked at schools before the Obamas took office and can say kids have always thrown out alot of food. But parents always have the options of sending their kids to school with a lunch instead of allowing them to starve all day.

          • Tammy McAbee Brookover

            What about the parents who had children receiving free lunch? Those were the kids going hungry because the parents couldn’t afford to pack a lunch for them everyday.

          • frank

            I guess they weren’t hungry enough.

          • Harley

          • Betty Balthrop

            Harley, President Trump gave Flint thousands of dollars to fix the problem which Obama ignored, meals on wheels lost only 1% and it is not necessarily for people on welfare, it is also for people who are house bound and can afford to pay!!! People have to start being responsible when they can afford instead of letting everyone else pay for them. The trash, no ideawhat you mean…

          • Harley

            people have to be responsible? oh really?

            like responsible for the millions of displaced refugees? like responsible for inciting racism and phobias? like responsible for taking away clean air and water? like that kind of responsibility? trump only cares about the interests of those HE SERVES!

          • AngryAmerican215

            Explain how our President took away clean air and water. Explain how our President is responsible for the millions of displaced refugees. Our former President is the one responsible for inciting racism by allowing the rise of BLM and inviting their leaders to the White House. How much power you attach to someone who’s been in office for only six months!

          • Harley

            Obama was NOT responsible for inciting racism.. You must have forgot about the Jim Crow Laws, The Tulsa Fires, Slavery, White Supremacy and the KKK to name a few.

          • frank

            PERSONAL responsibility. Before one complains about other’s actions, one has to look at their own home/self/behaviours. Luke 6:42.

            Dear Angry,

            Why even attempt a dialogue with a person who is totally clueless and spouts stuff that has no connection to fact. Flint water crisis should not be blamed even on Obama’s EPA. The local politicos of the City of Flint knew exactly what they were doing. Why not start there? And guess who runs the city of Flint on lead-contaminated water? Not hard to figure, I guess. And the same kinds of leadership of places like a Oakland, Detroit and Baltimore. What happened to accountability where it should be placed instead of expecting the total control of the central government?

          • Harley

            One only had to go on the website of the Obama girl’s school and pull up the menu. That gives you a pretty clear picture of what they had for lunch…unless of course Michelle packed their lunches according to the standards she set for public schools. Yea…..I doubt she did that.

          • Harley

            But why would YOU think her children would eat the same as other school kids? The fact she is encouraging healthy meals is a plus. Stop looking for conditions. Dumps kid doesnt even live in the WH

          • frank

            It’s called money. YOUR local school board decides on how much to spend on food. Got an issue with that? Take it up at your next school board mtg. Hold THEM accountable for your local tax dollars.

            a liberal racist troll, imagine that

          • Jeff Allen

            oh so are you saying that only public school kids should have to eat shit to be healthy? but that kids who’s parents could put them through private school were allowed to actually enjoy their lunch? and by the way you answered your own question when you referred to them as those lunches

        • Robin Stafford Aslakson

          I actually do have grown children and a grand child. I am a retired teacher, who ate at our school cafeteria on a regular basis. I will admit that our JH and HS had much better choices than the Elementary students. However, our younger students had 2 meat choices, 2 veggies choices, 2 fruit choices, unlimited salad bar – stocked with a variety of toppings, and a choice of white or chocolate 1% milk. If bread or rolls were served, they were whole grain. Oh the horror of forcing such a lunch on children. Our lunch program was not privatized and it was self sustaining. Maybe the difference was that we did not have a private company trying to squeeze every bit of profit out of the program. The feed back I received from our food service director was that the volume of waste did not increase once the new rules went into effect.
          There are many children that would only eat mac and cheese or chicken nuggets everyday, if that is all that was offered. However, as a teacher, I wanted children in my classroom who had bellies filled with food that would sustain them throughout the day and not just cause a carb crash in the afternoon.

          • Tammy Summers

            I know two people in charge if cafeterias in very large schools, and they said the amount of food wasted was horrible compared to before mo. I’m not going to argue anymore because you sound like another Kathy Griffin, who will hate the Trumps no matter how good they are. I didn’t like the Obamas, but I still prayed for them.

            You will never find any pictures or comments from me regarding beheading or wishing any harm upon the President of the US. Grow up and don’t throw out unjustified insults, like a child throwing a temper tantrum, just because I don’t agree with your insults towards the Obama’s. Based on your name-calling I don’t believe that you prayed for the safety and welfare of the 1st family. I’d guess you prayed for them to leave the WH ASAP.

        • D DDDD

          Nothing was forced on public schools. Schools got money for opting to implement the school lunch program which was designed to replace processed junk with fresh food and whole grains. Kids refused to eat it because they were raised on junk at home but they can learn to eat better. Schools all over the country are growing school gardens and it’s changing the way kids eat at school and at home. Little kids are more apt to eat fresh veggies if they grow them. We even have a greenhouse at the reservation school where I used to teach.

          • Aaron Aveiro

            Poppycock. .public schools are the jumping indoctrination point for the parallel bizario world where its acceotable for 40 year old men to use the same room for business as the 6th grade girls….they ate teaching that gmo’s are feeding the hungry masses…so stop with the ruse about publuc indoctrination centers…
            The part about eating what you grow..thats goid cuz i dont know anyone that dont like eatin’ what they grow…

      • don

        This is true and it was 1 thing that Michelle was right about but until parents take a more active role in what their children have to eat and exert more control the problem goes on.and from my experience obese children have obese parents in most cases.The longer left unchecked the greater the problem

        Robin a lot of these people hate the Obamas for one reason and one reason only, their skin color…and they will continually come up with lies and other reasons to hate them, but the bottom line is…racism.

        • ListenToBothSides

          Do you really believe that? Educate yourself, go check the demographics of the election. White citizens , both male and female overwhelmingly voted for BO. The minute you pulled out the race card, you told me everything I need to know about discussing anything with you.

          • Harley

            But some people are only concerned with skin color. Obama would not have been president with Chumps credentials. Chumps skin color and privilege allowed him there and many hated Obama purely because of his skin. Stop being blind to the truth

          • Shanedoo

            I don’t care what color his skin is, Obama is the worst POTUS ever.

          • Harley

            guess you weren’t born in the Reagan or NIXON ERA !!!!!!!!!!!

          • Kathy Cross

            Hold on Harley. I came of age in the Nixon era and have voted in every pres election since then. Unequivocally, I can say with certainty, Obama is the worst President in the so-called ‘modern’ era.

          • https://twitter.com/MetroIssues Metro Issues

            Obama, while not anywhere near perfect, did far more positive accomplishments than his predecessor, who wrecked a lot. And while Trump stopped TPP (a good thing), everything else has been regressive and stupid. Calling Obama the worst can only come from racism, and not looking at the whole picture.

          • Linda Snyder

            I was born in the Truman Era & have lived through every President since then, Jimmy Carter was terrible & Barack Obama made him look really good by comparison.

          • https://twitter.com/MetroIssues Metro Issues

          • Brent Davis

            Again, Obama got 43% of the white vote in 2008. Is 43% now considered an “overwhelming” majority? Only in Trump’s America.

          • Kathy Cross

            Yes some people are concerned with skin color. That is why so many white people broke their necks to elect Obama. Credentials? Obama had less than Trump. He was elected because he is black. Period.

          • Linda Snyder

            He got voted in twice because he was black and half white. That is the truth. The dislike for him comes from his policies. He almost ruined America with his liberal NWO ways.

          • Verna Brightwell

            What credentials did Obama have besides being a community organizer, making money from Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac, Being a one term senator…don’t bother with education since he had those records sealed, we have to take his word for whether his grades were good or not. He had the least credentials to be President of any one I can think of. Even he admitted Hillary was more qualified.

          • Brent Davis

            He admitted Hillary was more qualified, because Hillary IS more qualified… than anyone else running, not just Obama.

            The black population in America is roughly 13%. Somehow you are missing that a whole bunch of white people voted him into office two times. You don’t win an election with 13% of the vote. Why is it that if you disagree with his politics, you are racist. The very same people who disagree with his politics, disagreed with Hillary’s too. Need I remind you that Hillary is white? Define that one…because racist sure doesn’t fit that bill.

          • Harley

            Obviously you do not understand PRIVILEGE! Chump has NO credentials to be in office. A black man would NEVER be able to be president with his background and his Maxim posing wife. I know what Hillary is, which is why she was able to run as well. And YOU are responding to a response I made to someone who IS racist.

          • Tammy McAbee Brookover

            Obama had no experience either. Yea…a very short time as Senator where he did not vote more often than he did. Fact. You don’t seem to get that there is no experience requirement to be President. The people hire who they want to serve them. Obama failed more than excelled…..Trump, is excelling. If the left would quit filling the media with lies…the left would see what he can do…FOR THEM. Obama endure nothing like Trump is….and let me tell you, I support Trump. Completely. Hillary lost. Get over it.

            But she took a stand against other things and YOU want to dictate what she stands for? If you are so worried about people eating why are you not worried about Meals on Wheels? Do you feed the homeless? What ARE YOU doing to promote healthy living in YOUR community?

          • Brent Davis

            43% of white people voted for Obama in 2008. Let me do the math for you… That means… (you might want to take notes)… that 57% of white voters DID NOT vote for Obama in 2008. In fact, 55% of white voters voted for McCain. Let’s review… Obama 43%, McCain 55%… and this may be a shocker, but 43 is LESS than 55.

        • Linda Snyder

          The racist card does not work anymore. Just to make a point, I disliked his white side, too.

        • Verna Brightwell

          That’s just so ridiculous…this country was getting over racism, why do you think Obama was elected for 2 terms? Many millions of whites & Hispanics had to have voted for him. I lived through & helped with the 60’s integration of this country. The people that hate ex President Obama have gotten to that point because of the harm he’s done to this country. BLM…is just one, giving Iran the money to help them continue with their nuclear plans, releasing criminals from jail that had bombed & killed people in this country…destroying the health care system in this country…too many things to list them all. The color of his skin has absolutely nothing to do with it…he still bleeds red just like me.

          • Aaron Aveiro

          I don’t know if we can claim that any one answer is correct. At thrle core, everything in this country is all about race or religion. Not sure how to change that as both are ingrained into our culture. But this bias against anyone who looks or thinks differently than you do has to stop. We need to appreciate what we can learn from each other. Personally, I think whatever the Obamas did will always be wrong in some people’s eyes; whatever the Trumps do will be wrong in the other’s. Why don’t we just agree that both First Ladies take an interest in what our families consume? And be thankful for that.

          The documentary Fed Up covers Michelle Obama’s role in trying to get better food choices in place. Her husband sold out and she may have been sincere, but she slowly changed from diet to exercise, until exercise was her entire message. The food and agri-corp industry were hard on her and slowly she dumbed down her message. She had an organic garden on the White House lawn. You can bet that her husband didn’t eat any GMO’s. Yet, after he said that GMO’s should be labeled to get into the White House, he turned around and supported Monsanto and the like. I’m sure Melania did see a huge improvement in Baron after she removed GMO’s.

        No, I totally agreed with Mechelle that schools need to provide nutritious foods and you can do that and have tasty food also. Don’t know what her menu was so I cant comment. What I wish our Government would do is put a big label saying GMO on the food that contains it, and also I want to know where the food is processed and they have stopped doing that, I dont want to eat anything processed in China and more and more of our food is being processed there.

The Trump Administration has jumped on the chemical band wagon…In late March, chlorpyrifos, a pesticide commonly used to ward off insects on fruit and vegetable crops, was nearing the end of a decadelong review process. There’s strong evidence suggesting that the insecticide inhibits kids’ brain development, and at least 80,000 scientists, environmentalists, and members of the public had signed a petition urging the Environmental Protection Agency to ban the stuff outright. But in the final stages of review, EPA director Scott Pruitt greenlighted the chemical instead, arguing there was insufficient evidence to ban it. http://www.motherjones.com/environment/2017/04/pesticides-chemicals-atrazine-asbestos-neonics-bees-chuck-schumer-shampoo-trump-epa

        It sounded like a great idea to supply children with good food for lunch, but the govt messed it up. The food was rotten by the time it got to the kids. They should of let schools buy local. Fresh food doesn’t last very long. Obamas couldn’t even get that right! MAGA!!!

        I was an elementary kitchen School manager at the time Michelle Obama was pushing for reform. What she was pushing for is less calories. So all the kids that needed higher caloric intake had to bring extra food to school. Her platform had nothing to do with GMOs or the quality of the food. It had to do with getting kids skinnier and losing weight because of childhood obesity rates. The crap that was in the food that we had to serve the kids was made up for by smaller portions.

      “Except it’s not up to the president…”
      Someone should have explained that to old Barry.

      08.1.16
      On Friday, President Obama signed into law a bill best described as the Denying Americans the Right to Know (DARK) Act, striking down Vermont’s popular, democratically enacted law requiring clear, easy to read GMO labels on food packaging. The bill also pre-empts labeling laws in Connecticut, Maine, Alaska and seed labeling laws in Vermont and Virginia while also preventing other states from adopting similar legislation in the future.

      Over 90% of Americans support clear mandatory GMO labeling, but President Obama signed this giveaway to the Big Food industry, despite promising Americans he would label GMOs as part of his 2008 presidential run. The DARK Act, supported by Senators Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) and Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), as well as trade groups representing the Big Food industry like the Grocery Manufacturers Association and biotech companies such as Monsanto, is an unfortunate example of how powerful corporations and moneyed interests have taken over our democracy.

      The DARK Act is a blow to transparency around our food—it imposes a weak labeling requirement with no penalties for noncompliance, gives food companies the option to include QR codes or 1-800 numbers on packages, rather than clear labeling, and, thanks to loopholes in the bill, will likely leave many GMO ingredients exempt from any labeling requirements. The USDA will have 2 years to come up with their guidelines for this law.

      The worst POSPOTUS ever.
      And his meddling wife was the nightmare of school cafeteria management. One lady I spoke with worked in one of our high schools has a degree in nutrition, child nutrition and physical education. She forbade her daughter from eating school prepared meals, describing them as “vile slop” and advised parents to send their kids to school with meals from home. She finally got so disgusted with the whole thing, she quit and found a job in a corporate cafeteria.

      Dear Woodlawnbx,

      Your post has much more truth to it than just eating right. The Central Control Room (Federal Government) has slowly crept into every aspect of our lives and the vast majority depend upon being told what to do and what they cannot do. FDA, Dept of Agriculture, FTC, EPA, FCC, and on and on control every aspect of our lives. Melania Trump evaluated and made her decisions independently and critically. That kind of taking ownership and responsibility for one’s family and self is rar today. Why do we need any central government to tell us to wash food before consumption? Really? But the fear mongering Statists are steadfastly at work convincing that the world is going to end if….. viz the global warming/cooling hysteria, for example.

      Good post. Thank you.

    What`s the source for this news?

    • alex reppe

      It’s fake

    • orthorim

      Yeah if you want me to repost it, I need sources. Otherwise, who knows. Many things are written on the internet.

  • alex reppe

    Morons don’t understand how to spot fake news yet? This isn’t real and yournewswire.com isn’t a news source.

    • Donna Henry Beard

      It’s hard to find reliable news. Where do you get your news?

      • orthorim

        There are no reliable news, you have to kind of piece it together by yourself and see which stories make sense and which don’t. Mainstream media has been hijacked and is basically all propaganda, like Russia in the 80ies. Nothing in the mainstream media has any credibility for the simple reason that agenda always comes before truth. If truth is in line with the agenda, it’s reported, if not, it’s quieted or altered. It’s all about agenda.

        This one has has random correct and made up stories mixed up. For this story, I don’t see a source and I can’t find anything online that would be independent of it so I guess it’s made up.

        I follow some really awake conspiracy theory like news feeds, facebook groups, etc. They don’t always get it right but their version of reality makes a lot more sense than the dull stuff in the MSM – the MSM stuff is really ridiculous, you have to be high on GMOs, fluoride, and roundup to be dense enough to buy into that.

        Oh yeah there’s also news sources with a 100% accuracy track record and guess what, I trust them. Assange and Wikileaks. They never released anything that wasn’t true.

        Mainstream media has lied about every big issue since forever, from weapons of mass destructions to syria to basically everything.

    • Linda Snyder

      It’s fun reading the comments, tho.

  • Eric Bjerregaard

    The woman makes a poor decision based on correlation and this sorry excuse for an author makes a propaganda piece out of it. This will hurt his career as he has no evidence for his claims. The long and impeccable safety record of biotechnology alone shows how poor the author’s work is.

  • Dale Dillon

  • http://foodscienceinstitute.com James Cooper

    Sadly, science is not on her side. I suspect the story is concocted, anyway.

  • Mary Sylvester-Hedenberg

    Instead of believing propaganda and fake news try educating yourself on the issue. You will be hard pressed to find true peer reviewed research that demontrates any ill effects from GMOs. Stop believing everything you read!

    • Louisa

      How can you believe that veggies doused in round up are ok to eat? Also it’s poisoning farm workers and killing the bees. I know someone who has bone cancer in his legs from round up. And aside from good Monsanto is just a horrible chemical company poisoning the world. I don’t believe everything I read I believe reality. Check it out sometime. Even if this is fake maybe it will make one person look into Monsanto and save them

      • Brent Davis

        Please learn the difference between “pesticides” (Round Up) and “GMOs” (genetically modified organisms). Hate to break it to you, but they are not the same thing.

        • orthorim

          I think the problem is Monsanto as a whole. Take what is known about the company, and draw a projected future of what their real interests are. This company is so evil, it’s hard to believe, and it’s hard to believe profit is the only motive there.

          If a known psychopath sold you on GMO, would you give him the benefit of the doubt? The benefit of the doubt makes sense only if you know nothing about the other player. Monsanto has a very long and surprisingly well documented history.

          And yeah roundup must be one of the most evil inventions ever. It’s like a plot from a bad movie. Except it’s real.

        • frank

          She didn’t imply that they were. Fast forward; they both wreak havoc with the environment and critters that ingest them.

      • frank

        A most excellent point! “Even if this is fake maybe it will make one person look into Monsanto and save them”

    • orthorim

      That’s because most “research”is paid for by vested interests. Independent research receives no funding, and when it does happen, it’s instantly discredited by money interests.

      The problem is always the same – it’s man vs. machine. If I am a professor discrediting Monsanto with studies, I’ll get a call from their media department, and if I don’t switch sides, they will hire 7 other professors to discredit my study. Now, some individuals are strong minded and resist the pressure. But the question is, how long? Monsanto keeps throwing money at it. Money never tires, never needs a rest, the machine never needs a break. If one lawyer gets exhausted, they hire another one. Etc. Money will always win in the end.

      You have to do your research on research – something people believing in research never bother to do. Who made the study? What’s it really saying (before it gets mass media treatment). Whats the statistical significance? What were the motives behind it? Who financed it? All these questions influence the outcome of a study much more than whatever reality it’s supposed to prove or disprove.

    • frank

      Sure, if you only read from sites that receive funding from Monsanto, etc. You want peer reviewed anti-gmo, go to Europe or anything not American or beholden to U.S. There’s lots of research showing harmful effects from gmo/glyphosate/Monsanto crap but you have to be willing to do the work. Follow the money.

    STOP COMPLAINING PEOPLE!!!! GMO product are banned all over the world!!! It is outlawed in all the European countries! Japan does not allow ANY GMO tainted products into their country!!! A couple of years ago they destroyed 3 ships laden with neat from the USA (on the open sea), rather then let it land in their country! On the VERY day that the rest of the world outlawed GMO containing products, our members of congress gave Monsanto a pass by NOT even requiring companies to list GMO contamination in the ingredients list on boxes! Consumers don’t HAVE TO DO ANYTHING, but your choices and unwillingness to take care of you and your family’s health is your responsibility! You can grow your own vegetables in a container garden or an upright-in-a-pallet garden if the organic foods are too costly in your area! You either refuse to let the companies make you and you family sick, or you will pay the Dr,’s and the pharmaceutical companies later! Br pro-active for your family….saves you a lot of trouble and sickness!!!

      No France has now allowed GMO in after having its arm twisted, Russia is the ONLY country to go Organic as its beneficial for its people… ITS PEOPLE when was the last time you ever heard that in Fascist USSA???

    • hyperzombie

      GMOs are banned in exactly 0 countries, some countries you are not allowed to grow them. Japan has approved 238 GMOs and products from GMOs, and they are one of the largest importers of GMO feeds.

  • Vere Barzilai

    Now you don’t believe this, the lady has got her dietitians, cooks etc. who most probably serve them best, tasty, organic and expensive meal without her bothering at all. Speaking out against Monsato needs a serious approach, not as a subjective “I eat only…bla bla” message.

  • So_Co_teacher

    I think that this is a made up story. I can’t find it on Melania’Trump’s Twitter. It would certainly be newsworthy if she publicly opposed her husband’s policies, and Trump is GMO-friendly.

    • hyperzombie

      I don’t think Trump is personally GMO friendly. The US Government is.

It is past time Melania for another executive order ot stop the gmo products in our food soon there will be no organic products available through cross pollination. there are many organic foods available but certified organic is the best.

    • Anti

        • Brent Davis

          From Melania’s website (which no longer exists): “Born on April 26, 1970 in Slovenia, Melania Knauss began her modeling
          career at the age of sixteen. At the age of eighteen, she signed with a
          modeling agency in Milan. After obtaining a degree in design and
          architecture at University in Slovenia, Melania was jetting between
          photo shoots in Paris and Milan, finally settling in New York in 1996.”

          Small problem, there is no such thing as the University in Slovenia, or University of Slovenia. She not obtain a degree, from anywhere.

        • Brent Davis

          There is also no proof that she can speak 7 languages. Her defenders claim 6 languages, others claim 5 languages, and still others claim 3 languages. Over 70% of Slovenians speak 3 languages.

      • orthorim

    “… other genetically modified crops such as soy, sugar beets, and cotton – and these products form the foundation of many American’s diets.”

    Really? I was unaware that so many Americans had diets based on a steady foundation of cotton. *How* have I lived in America for 55 years without ever eating cotton???

    • pcakes

      Upwards of 94% of cotton in the U.S is GE. Cottonseed oil, formerly a waste product of the cotton industry only used industrially, is now commonly found in ‘vegetable’ oil and widely used in food production. If you’ve eaten processed foods you’ve eaten cotton!

Probably not having his father living with them in New York did that. Stop spreading lies about genetic engineering!

  • Magdalene

  • Leslie Woodhull

    Anyone who doesn’t eat organic or grow their own food using Heirloom seeds is eating gmo food. Unless you eat at Panera or other strictly organic places you’re eating gmo food. Do your own research!! Monsanto needs to be put out of business

    • pcakes

      Panera has dropped 150 artificial food additives from their menu and is committed to cage-free eggs and ethically-raised meats by 2024. Although they offer some organic choices (indicated on their menu), they are NOT organic and use many GMO items in their restaurants.

    Kudos to both Melania Trump and Michele Obama for advocating organic, clean eating. Big fat boos to Congress for passing the DARK act denying Americans right to know what is in processed food. It passed thanks to the Republican majority and signed into law by Obama. The FDA and the USDA is a revolving door of Monsanto and Dow employees that contribute to politicians on both sides of the aisle. With Trump’s pick, Scott Gottlieb and his ties to the pharmaceutical industry, it’ll only get worse.

  • Natalie

    According to Snopes at http://www.snopes.com/melania-trump-bans-monsanto/ “These fabricated reports about Melania Trump and Monsanto originated with YourNewsWire, a fake news web site who plagiarized the quotes falsely attributed to the First Lady from a six-year-old Yes! Magazine article by April Dávila:

    Yes! Magazine (2010):

    “With the help of sustainable food advocate Cassie Gruenstein, I got in touch with dozens of health food stores and manufacturers to ask where they sourced their products. I spent hours at the farmers’ market asking farmers what seed companies they bought from, googling on my iPhone before making purchases. It took several weeks, but I slowly built a somewhat normal Monsanto-free existence.

    I began to research where exactly Monsanto corn appeared in my family’s diet. With a little online sleuthing, I learned that in addition to producing the genetically modified corn, Monsanto produces several other genetically modified crops such as soy, sugar beets, and cotton. Many of these crops form the foundation of our diets: 70 to 80 percent of American processed foods contain genetically engineered ingredients, according to the Grocery Manufacturers of America.”

    has appointed Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. to look into the toxins in
    vaccines and the non-safety of vaccines…Trump, Cruz and Paul were the

    It’s called an investment in one’s health. The percentage of income spent on groceries has plummeted over my lifetime yet the amount that folks spend on foolish things like fancy houses/cars/clothing/phones/shoes/etc has skyrocketed. To paraphrase Joel Salatin, “if you think the price of organic food is expensive, you should check out the cost of cancer.” It’s all about perspective and priorities.
