– Over $30M spent last year on lobbying to keep GMOs hidden in foods (Natural News, June 27, 2013):
Guess who spends the most money lobbying on agricultural lobbying? If you answered, “Monsanto,” you’re correct. Most of their efforts, of course, are focused on lobbying for GMOs — to keep them legal and keep them hidden in foods.
Do you know how much money Monsanto spent on lobbying in 2012?
The answer is nearly $6 million!
And in a close second, the American Farm Bureau spent $5.7 million on lobbying in 2012.
