Admitted presence of GMO ingredients on store shelves contradicts claim of ‘nothing artificial ever’

Take a look at this mural, painted on the side of one of Whole Foods’ Austin locations: It brags, ‘Nothing Artificial Ever,’ but the admitted GMO ingredients sold on store shelves could never be considered to be anything but man-made freaks of nature.
With GMO foods more prevalent and more unpopular than ever, even “organic”-oriented grocery chains have been scrambling to spin the sad truth that genetically-modified ingredients have saturated the market and infiltrated virtually all food brands.
Such is the case with Whole Foods, leader in the organic products market, who’ve made billions advertising their stores as all ‘natural,’ wholesome and containing ‘nothing artificial ever,’ all while admittedly selling GMOs inside the store.
In the below report, Infowars Nightly News investigative team Melissa Melton and Aaron Dykes uncover the ugly facts about the ‘organic elite’ cooperating with Big Agra, the USDA and even Monsanto, all while deceptively positioning themselves to customers under misleading premises.
These stores are perpetrating a blatant case of false advertising, which Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary of Law defines as, “the crime or tort of publishing, broadcasting, or otherwise publicly distributing an advertisement that contains an untrue, misleading, or deceptive representation or statement which was made knowingly or recklessly and with the intent to promote the sale of property, goods, or services to the public.”
Whole Foods has had to admit recently that its shelves are packed with food that contain GMO ingredients, going against their pure image as an all-organic grocer. Yet their customers are drawn into the vast, attractive store aisles on the premise that they are buying pure, wholesome foods for their families, while the store charges premium ‘organic’ prices for many products that fall short of any serious standards.
Numerous health advocates including NaturalNews.com have exposed the deception behind industry marketing under the term “natural,” concocted to sound like a synonym for organic foods, grown without pesticides or artificial chemicals, but which actually contain ingredients derived from food-experiments created in the labs of Monsanto, Dupont, Syngenta or other leading biotech firms and designed to takeover our lives. There are no regulatory standards for the “natural” food products aimed at health conscious buyers, nor for the hundreds of other unregulated foods containing potentially-deadly GMOs, including those found at Whole Foods. Only products specifically labeled and certified as “organic” can be even remotely trusted in this volatile and confusing market.
If Whole Foods, a respected niche leader in the organic movement, can get away with this massive and lucrative deception, anyone can. Many of us at Infowars are Whole Foods customers, and this is all the more reason why we are taking this issue personally.
We must fight to stop the spread of GMO food products, not give into the massive finance pressure in the biotech industry or false promises of regulatory figureheads long ago bought out by Monsanto and their ilk. Please spread this video report and article to everyone you know, while redoubling your efforts to expose GMO dangers and fight for truly natural foods that are nutritious and proven safe by thousands of years of human eating habits.
