What’s the big deal over GMOs (genetically modified organisms) that are in over 70% of what we find on our Grocer’s (even Whole Foods, too) shelves? GREAT NEWS!!! Did you know that we now have a way to get GMO's Labeled in New York?? HOUSE BILL NO A01367 New York State Right to Know and SENATE BILL NO SO3908 New York State Right To Know will be up in January 2013's Legislative Session, and our local Assemblyman, Fred Thiele is a courageous co-sponsor of the House Bill!
Why do 61 Nations mandate GMO Labeling or outright Bans on GMO's BUT NOT THE USA (or CANADA)? If GMOs are safe, LABEL THEM LIKE SUGAR, SALT AND TRANS FATS ARE LABELED. We have the right to know. If these GMO's are so safe, PROUDLY LABEL THEM NOW!
1) Over 70% of what we find on our grocers (even Whole Foods, & Trader Joe’s, too) shelves. How do we know which are and are NOT GMO?
2) Poisons from herbicides, pesticides and agricultural chemical sprays on our food, air, soils and water are now present in 100% of the women and fetuses, according to a new Canadian Study-GreenMedInfo.com. The scientists were looking for 5 basic toxins. Those include:
- Glyphosate (Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide sprayed on GMO crops)
- Gluphosinate (an herbicide sprayed on GMO crops)
- AMPA (a metabolite of glyphosate sprayed on GMO crops)
- 3-MMPA (a metabolite of gluphosinate sprayed on GMO crops)
- Cry1Ab (the Bt toxin of gluphosinate sprayed on GMO crops)
3) The above (#1) corroborates a German University study finding glyphosate (Roundup sprayed on GMO crops) in all urine samples tested in women.
4) Sugar, Salt, Trans Fats, Vitamin and Mineral and ingredient content are already on food labels in the USA. Adding a label that lists GMO Ingredients is a matter of basic Editing, NOT the claimed huge added costs cited by those who have spent $47Million to fight GMO Labels.
5) US Spends $77 BILLION a year in Healthcare costs due to FOOD CONTAMINATION.
7) To learn about GMOs watch Genetic Roulette, The Gamble of our Lives, GMO documentary, including subtitle options in Spanish and English (for the hearing impaired) please visit http://www.geneticroulettemovie.com, (Kathleen Furey is credited for providing research for this film.)
There is a lot we can do, together, to portect our food supply and mandate healthy food in our schools, hospitals, and grocery stores. Can we tawwwk??
