Government Knowledge, GMOs, and the Law

Staff Writer, R. Patrick Chapman
Laws / GMOs 

The Federal Government's Agency that is supposed to safeguard the food and health of Americans is playing a game of chicken with the Center for Food Safety by not handing over documents in a Freedom of Information Act request:
On August 25th, the Center for Food Safety (CFS) filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) for failure to adequately respond to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests related to genetically engineered (GE) crops. This marks the fourth time the CFS has sued APHIS to force the release of records.
GMOs are not being regulated, properly tested for health safety for humans or animals. 

Why are corporations allowed to write and enforce their own laws when We the People are in charge not the corporations?
