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?
1) 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)
2) The above (#1) corroborates a German University study finding glyphosate (Roundup sprayed on GMO crops) in all urine samples tested in women.
3) 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.
4) US Spends $77 BILLION a year in Healthcare costs due to FOOD CONTAMINATION.
6) 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.
7) YES ON CALIFORINA PROP 37 - Label GMOs Initiative means all GMO food ingredients sold in the state of CA. must be labeled. If these GMO's are so safe, PROUDLY LABEL THEM NOW!
8) Over 70% of what we find on our grocers (even Whole Foods, & Trader Joe’s, too) shelves?
