STOP ALLOWING COMPANIES TO PROFIT OFF OF CAUSING PEOPLE CANCER, DEFECTS AND DEATH !!!!!

END THE USES OF GMO PRODUCTS IN AMERICA !!!!! RECALL THE MONSANTO PROTECTION ACT !!!!! STOP POISONS FROM BEING PUT INTO OUR FOODS !!! STOP ALLOWING COMPANIES TO PROFIT OFF OF CAUSING PEOPLE CANCER, DEFECTS AND DEATH !!!!! 10 REASONS TO BAN GMO PRODUCTS OF ALL KINDS : 1. Multiple Toxins From GMOs Detected In Maternal and Fetal Blood 2. DNA From Genetically Modified Crops Can Be Transferred Into Humans Who Eat Them 3. New Study Links GMOs To Gluten Disorders That Affect 18 Million Americans 4. Study Links Genetically Modified Corn to Rat Tumors 5. Glyphosate Induces Human Breast Cancer Cells Growth via Estrogen Receptors 6. Glyphosate Linked To Birth Defects 7. Study Links Glyphosate To Autism, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s 8. Chronically Ill Humans Have Higher Glyphosate Levels Than Healthy Humans 9. Studies Link GMO Animal Feed to Severe Stomach Inflammation and Enlarged Uteri in Pigs 10. GMO risk assessment is based on very little scientific evidence in the sense that the testing methods recommended are not adequate to ensure safety. Genetically modified foods or GM foods, also genetically engineered foods, are foods produced from organisms that have had changes introduced into their DNA using the methods of genetic engineering. Genetic engineering techniques allow for the introduction of new traits as well as greater control over traits than previous methods such as selective breeding and mutation breeding. GMO foods pose a risk to humans, animals, and the environmental.!!!!! “Several animal studies indicate serious health risks associated with genetically modified (GM) food (AAEM 2009),” including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulation, and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system. The AAEM has asked physicians to advise all patients to avoid GM foods. GM plants, such as soybean, corn, cottonseed, and canola, have had foreign genes forced into their DNA. The inserted genes come from species, such as bacteria and viruses, which have never been in the human food supply. The genetic engineering process creates massive collateral damage, causing mutations in hundreds or thousands of locations throughout the plant’s DNA. Natural genes can be deleted or permanently turned on or off, and hundreds may change their behavior. Even the inserted gene can be damaged or rearranged, and may create proteins that can trigger allergies or promote disease. GMOs and liver problems : Rats fed GM potatoes had smaller, partially atrophied livers.The livers of rats fed GM canola were 12-16% heavier.GM soy altered mouse liver cells in ways that suggest a toxic insult. The changes reversed after they switched to non-GM soy. GMOs, reproductive problems, and infant mortality : More than half the babies of mother rats fed GM soy died within three weeks. Male rats and mice fed GM soy had changed testicles, including altered young sperm cells in the mice. The DNA of mouse embryos functioned differently when their parents ate GM soy The longer mice were fed GM corn, the less babies they had, and the smaller their babies were. Babies of female rats fed GM soy were considerably smaller, and more than half died within three weeks (compared to 10% of the non-GM soy controls). Female rats fed GM soy showed changes in their ovaries and uterus. By the third generation, most hamsters fed GM soy were unable to have babies. THIS IS THE FUTURE OF PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD IF WE CONTINUE TO NEGLECT THE DANGERS OF USING GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISMS (GMO) PLEASE JOIN THE REST OF THE WORLD ON SAVING THE LIVES OF OUR LOVED ONES.... LIFE IS TO PRECIOUS AND TO SHORT...HELP PUT AN END TO THESE CORPORATIONS WHO HAVE NO REGARD TO THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD!!!!! WE CAN MAKE A CHANGE!!! YOUR VOICE DOES MATTER!!! STAND UP AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD !!! PROTECT EACH OTHER!!!

Petition to Donald Trump

Make America Organic Again

Dear Mr. President, Perhaps you've heard this expression; "At one time all food was organic".It's true. At one time in history Americans produced foods that had no chemicals and no modifications. It worked quite well. Mixing greed with science brought about new products and methods which, at first, seemed promising. The ideas increased profits and seemed as if they were solving problems. Time and time again it was found (but rarely reported) that these new products did more harm than good. This was done at the expense of of consumers. Toxic pesticides and herbicides. Profits increased while people suffered. Add to these the preservatives, artifical colors and flavors, especially MSG, Aspartame and other artificial sweeteners such as high fructose corn syrup, sugars - the poisonings of our country. Fast forward to the promise of better foods through genetic modification or GMO foods. While being an amazing endeavor, GMO foods are treated like poison by the human body. Although pleasing to the senses, the human body rejects such invaders. Over time the repeated exposure/rejection cycle leads to illness, disease, and premature death. The evidence of such physical response has been, for the most part, hidden from consumers. Again, profits increased while people suffered. Greed and corruption has inundated our great country, especially in the area of the foods we eat. Lobbyists have convinced policy makers time and time again to make decisions which hurt our citizens. Profits increased, people suffered. I understand that your wife, Mrs. Trump, has experienced the benefits of switching to organic foods first hand, especially in regards to your son, Barron. Please help all of America to be on the same boat. America is legally consuming at least over 20 food related things (additives, GMO's, poisons, etcetera) which are banned from use in many other countries. These countries know the truth. Much of America knows the truth. We need these poisons to be removed from the American diet else the motto might as well be (to the joy of big pharma, GMO manufacturers, etc) , "Make America Sicker". In closing, please, Mr. President, help Make America Organic Again. Sincerely, Chris Cavallaro, representative of the American fabric.
