Look at this and decide why we have so many health issues in the US


Tell me this isn’t scary! Just check out the percentage of Genetically Modified crops across the world. Guess who has the highest percent?!?

  • Melissa Mitchell IF GM is so safe, then why doesn’t MONSANTO release the seeds for independent studies????????? All Im saying is I don’t trust the company that also manufactured Agent Orange to be in charge of my food supply. LET IT BE TESTED AND RESEARCHED FURTHER IF THERE IS NOTHING TO HIDE.

  • Kevin Rusnak Melissa, Monsanto has the patent on Roundup ready seeds, so they don’t just give it away. There are universities all over the world doing ongoing research on GMO products. Roundup ready plants are far from the only GMO products out there.
  • Kathleen Delmar Lucky that Kew Gardens hold uncontaminated stocks of all seeds, including those that are now no longer available commercially!
  • Melissa Mitchell Yes they are only given to universities, not independent research companies. And when the researching university professor has anything negative to say they are belittled, threatened and terminated from their job. Doesn’t sound unbiased to me. And yoSee More

THIS IS OCCUPY MONSANTO DAY

Join me in occupying Monsanto on the Internet by passing on my posts! Monsanto has raised millions of dollars to oppose Prop 37 in California which would require labeling of some genetically modified foods. They are being supported by major companies in the US who don’t want you to know how many genetically modified items are in your diet.  From baby formula to cereal bars and your favorite muffin mix, you are consuming food with multiple genetically modified ingredients in every meal.  Learn why this is dangerous to your health.  Watch this space!

Let’s Label GMO Food - 93% of us want it

In the U.S., we pride ourselves on having choices and making informed decisions. Under current FDA regulations, we don’t have that choice when it comes to GE ingredients in the foods we purchase and feed our families.  This led the Center for Food Safety to submit a legal petition to the FDA demanding that the agency require the labeling of GE foods.  In response, Senator Barbara Boxer (CA) and Representative Peter DeFazio (OR) have authored a bicameral Congressional letter in support of our legal petition and will be urging their fellow Members on Capitol Hill to sign onto their letter.

Unsuspecting consumers by the tens of millions are being allowed to purchase and consume unlabeled genetically engineered foods, despite the fact that FDA undertakes no testing of its own, instead relying only on a voluntary consultation with industry and confidential industry data to assure safety.  Internal FDA documents discovered in prior CFS litigation actually indicated the foods could pose serious risks, but those views were overruled.

Genetically engineered foods are required to be labeled in nearly 50 countries around the world including the United Kingdom, Australia, South Korea, Japan, Brazil, China, New Zealand and many others.  A recent poll released by ABC News found that 93 percent of the American public wants the federal government to require mandatory labeling of genetically engineered foods. As ABC News stated, “Such near-unanimity in public opinion is rare.” Yet the United States is one of the only developed countries in the world that doesn’t require labeling of GE food!

Please email your U.S. Senators and Representative and urge them to join the Boxer-DeFazio letter in support of labeling!

CALL NOW TO TELL YOUR SENATORS WE WANT LABELING OF GM FOOD

Late last night, members of the U.S. Senate voted 33 to 66 against a healthy food amendment that would have restored funding to vital nutrition programs and cut excessive government subsidies to private crop insurance companies. By voting against the Gillibrand amendment 66 U.S. Senators boldly told the world that they would rather support massive government subsidized profits for corporations rather than support minimal funding for healthy food for America’s neediest children. Despite this major loss for healthy, sustainable food advocates, a number of victories have been won in the Senate in the last 24 hours, including Sherrod Brown’s (D-OH) amendment (#2445) to support Beginning Farmers and Ranchers which passed yesterday and Senator Merkley’s (D-OR) amendment (#2382) on organic crop insurance. These are great victories for eaters and family farmers, but the fight is still far from over! Right now three vital amendments will come up for a vote at any moment on the Senate floor and we need your Senator to hear from you today! Click here to make a call today to make sure that the 2012 Food and Farm Bill protects farmers, eaters and the environment. We need your help today! http://action.fooddemocracynow.org/go/604?t=9&akid=576.434774.YPtKnL Here’s a revised list of the amendments that Food Democracy Now! and our allies for a healthy, sustainable food system are supporting. Please call your Senators today and tell them that you support these amendments: Sanders Amendment No. 2310 Allows states to label genetically engineered foods. (60-vote threshold) Chambliss Amendment No. 2438 Links the receipt of federally subsidized crop insurance to basic conservation requirements. Durbin-Coburn Amendment No. 2439 Limits the amount of insurance subsidies for the wealthiest farmers. UPDATE from yesterday: LOSS - Gillibrand Amendment Restores funding for vital nutrition programs and limits excessive payments to crop insurance companies. VICTORY - Merkley Amendment Creates an organic crop insurance program that offers organic farmers. VICTORY - Brown Amendment Provides mandatory funding for Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development. Please pass this on to others who want to create a sustainable food system for today and for tomorrow - together we can make change happen!

And if its genetically modified or synthetically made, it is really, really bad for you. Don’t mess with MOTHER NATURE.  GMO’S ARE CREATED BY USING BACTERIA AND VIRUSES.
