lobbyists against Monsanto

EcoWatch can exclusively confirm that the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has ended its corporate partnership with Monsanto following the efforts of a group with surprising clout: Mom bloggers.

It appears that the severing between the divisive biotech company and the pediatricians association was spearheaded by Mamavation founder and “food activist” Leah Segedie, who confronted the AAP’s public affairs team after learning about this “unholy alliance,” according to a Mamavation blog post which first announced news of the split.

PS The Corn Refiners Association, that they will now be labeling high fructose corn syrup as simply “fructose.” The Corn Refiners Association is the lobbying group that pushes for government protections of entrenched businesses in the agriculture industry. They are based in Washington DC and are a very strong controlling force in the food industry.
