NON-GMO: Label Genetically Modified Foods

In light of Monsanto's recent victory over Proposition 37 in California, it is more imperative than ever to rally the public and fight for your right to know what is in your food.

You literally are what you eat.  Your body cyclically regenerates as often as a matter of days, with organs and new tissues being made from the food that you eat. Designed with pesticides inbred, genetically modified foods are mutating human cells at catastrophic levels, causing unprecedented levels of cancer, ADHD, asthma, infertility, and other food related epidemics.

Over 90% of corn and soy products are currently genetically modified. This is significant because these crops and their byproducts can be found in countless items on your grocery store shelves. These products are also fed to animals on feedlots, alongside antibiotics to account for the fact that herbivores cannot stay healthy long on this kind of diet. And neither can we. Unlabeled, you feed them to your family and yourself unaware, to what scientists are fearing might be an irreparable detriment. These foods pose no benefits to the public or to the environment. They do not increase food supply, they do not lower price.

 

As consumers, you vote for what you'd like to see in stores every time you place an item in your shopping cart. At least let the grocers know the liability and that we as a public are tired of being poisoned while fatting the wallets of Monsanto executives. Please watch this video for more information and say no to GMO. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vv96D_ZURzs

We need your help to bring this issue into the mainstream public eye. People have a right to know and to decide: these are the basic ideals upon which our country is founded. Please, take the time out of your busy day and use your success to help others succeed, as well - the health of our nation depends on it.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      It appears some votes are still being counted and will continue through December 14. However, with a disparity of a million votes at the present count, it is still imperative to be ready for whatever the outcome may be and to continue to fight for our right to know.

      We need to fight for this labeling not only in California, but nationwide.

      Is the Prop. 37 GMO Labeling Food Fight Over?

      It might seem like old news that Proposition 37, the ballot measure calling for the labeling of genetically engineered foods, was defeated Nov. 6, with nearly 53 percent of California voters rejecting it. But is it over?

      Labeling GMO's is just common sense.

      I hate when big corporations think they can genetically change the food that god created naturally.These companies are trying to destroy us inside and out .They are making us sick when we are eating the food that gmo without us knowing it. It gets me mad that maybe my friends and family members might lived if they were eating real natural food instead of gmo's.

      Because I think it is completely unnecessary. They have already brought us so much crap like junk food. THEY CANT TAKE HEALTHY VEGETABLES TOO.
