As the FDA IGNORES a public that wants GMO food labeled the New York Times has written an article that is in favor of labeling.
A lot of what I read is concerned with the pesticides used in GMOs which is creating health problems, but, not much is written about the mixing of interspecies DNA. The difference between creating a hybrid apple tree, let’s say, is that apple trees are used to create a new strain, not cows, pigs, cockroaches, lobsters or any other species DNA.
GMO’s can use any other animal, insect, even HUMAN DNA to create GMOs, without telling us that it has been done. They have been protected by the FDA. They do not have to tell us, they don’t have to do any lab testing. WE are the guinea pigs. And, they can’t be held liable for disease, illness or death caused by their freak food.
Read this article and when you go to the grocery store purchase food products that have joined the non-GMO labeling system for your health and your families health. New York Times article.
Your money is your most powerful weapon in creating safe, healty food sources.
Corporations hold the purse strings to billions of dollars, they can skew information in any manner, purchase votes, sway Presidents and leaders of other nations. People have a right to know what is in their food and I’m stumped why the religious/spiritual leaders are not speaking up. If you choose to practice a particular diet for your spiritual practice, how will you know what is in the food since any
Join Dr. Vandana Shiva in Telling President Obama to Protect Seed Freedom and Food Democracy
President Obama will be meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi during India’s Republic Day celebrations on January 25 and 26. In response, activist, author and physicist, Dr. Vandana Shiva has written an open letter addressed to President Obama and Prime Minister Modi on seed freedom and food democracy urging the two leaders to renounce the patenting of life and to stop pursuing “harmonization” of seed patenting laws which would further extend corporate control of our seeds and food.
And she’d like you to sign it.
Why? The U.S. is pressuring the Indian government to conform to U.S. seed and patent law, subverting the strong patent laws India has, and threatening India’s small farmers. We are calling on President Obama to instead recognize seed freedom as essential to food security and to democracy.
In her letter, Dr. Shiva says:
“We hope you show great leadership by working together to strengthen the laws to protect your citizens and countries instead of making it easier for corporations to take control over life-forms for short term profits. Let us work toward a future where our food is our freedom.”
President Obama must hear from us that we care what the U.S. pushes upon other nations, and that we firmly believe that life should not be patented—anywhere.
Sign on in support Dr. Shiva’s letter!
