I just finished taking a fabulous 5 session GMO activist training with Jeffrey Smith. He’s so knowledgeable about GMO’s and about how to pass along the information about them in an empowering way. This year the focus is to reach the tipping point where consumers outright reject GMO’s. Monsanto would like us to just eat organic foods to avoid GMO’s but what will really make an impact is when we are telling the processed food companies that we will not eat there products until they are GMO free. See our ‘What You Can Do’ page for the phone numbers of the Frankenfood Fifteen, https://momsforsafefood.org/What_we_can_do.html
They can make their same products, in exactly the same way but without the GMO ingredients. Since I don’t what my kids to be the lab rats for the untested GMO food, I am boycotting any processed foods until they no longer use any GMO ingredients. If we hit them in their profit margin, they will pay attention!
Here’s an article from Jeffrey Smith, posted with permission.
It’s time to reclaim a food supply without dangerous genetically modified organisms (GMOs). And we can do it—together.
When European consumers said no to GMOs, the food companies kicked them out. As more and more US consumers rejected GM bovine growth hormone, most dairies and brands, including Wal-Mart, Starbucks, Kroger, Dannon, and Yoplait, responded.
No we are joining forces nationwide in the Campaign for Healthier Eating in America—designed to achieve the tipping point of consumer rejection of GMO to force them out of the market.
October is Non-GMO Month and 10-10-10 is Non-GMO Day. Between now and then, we will send out a series of articles you won’t want to miss.
•About the serious documented health risks of genetically modified (GM) foods.
•Why children and pregnant mothers are most at risk.
•How scientists who uncovered these findings were threatened, vilified, and fired.
•About the sneaky ways the industry scientists rig their research to avoid problems.
•The way the biotech industry hijacked the FDA and regulators worldwide, and ignored the warnings of their own scientists about GMO health risks.
•Which brands are non-GMO, so you can protect yourself and your family.
•What you can do to make this campaign go viral.
•Why even 5% of US consumers choosing healthier non-GMO brands could achieve a tipping point, eliminating GMOs for the rest of the nation.
After you read these articles, please pass them onto your entire network, and encourage them to do the same.
It is past time for us to look to the government to bail us out of this mess. We are on the top of the food chain, and we can make things happen—together.
