Corn Industry to Provide Health Warnings?Sunday, June 26, 2011
I recently blogged about the scary government warnings that will start to appear on cigarette packs to “inform” the consumer of the dangers of the product they choose to buy. Many readers questioned why similar warnings aren’t found on all items that pose some sort of safety or health hazard in the short or long term. Of course, the folks writing me understand full well that the government Safety Nazi crusade is aimed at controlling and directing behavior through laws while redistributing wealth via its ‘most favored industry’ decrees. Tobacco is not a favored and fully subsidized industry – in spite of the political deals made with Big Tobacco – to the same degree as the omnipotent Big Agra-Big Food complex that permeates every aspect of every American’s life. Otherwise you might see warning labels such as this on just about every processed, fake food that contributes to unhealthy food dependency and disease. Thanks to Doug Roudybush for the pic.
