GMO Debate, July 7, 2016 - Senator Heidi Heitkamp speaks in favor of the new QR labeling scheme and incorrectly claims that every American will have the ability to know if their food is GMO. This is a lie. This bill discriminates against millions, including the poor and elderly who cannot afford the necessary phone & plan, yet she is oblivious to facts. She believes the poor can just get help from store employees; in psychiatry this is referred to as "magical thinking." Heidi is big on accusing others of not understanding science but she clearly doesn't have a clue what she is talking about. Equating traditional breeding (10,000 years old) with genetic engineering using modern biotechnology (several decades old) is propaganda by GMO supporters and is absurd, yet she repeats this myth because she lacks comprehension. Her entire policy stance on GMOs is based on myths and disinformation - consequently she harms millions of Americans by supporting a failed QR code scheme. close
