Monsanto Update…

It seems like the word is spreading about Monsanto & what they’re doing to our food supply. I’ve ranted in the past about this company. Today there is on rant only hope that the message is finally getting through to people that we need to stand up for our right to know what’s in the food we’re eating.

There are a couple of things currently going on, on this front. So far 90, yes NINE ZERO, 90 countries have banned GMO foods & crops from their dinner tables. Monsanto is being sued by  5 MILLION farmers world wide, and on November 6th California is voting on Proposition 37, the California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act. If California votes yes for Prop 37 then the rest of the US will follow suit according to an article I read (link below).

Canada really needs to be country 91 on the list, and so does the States. Not only are GMOs destroying our health, they are destroying the environment & the future of our children, their children and their children’s children. If we let this continue as it has for the last 30 years there won’t be any crop, tree, animal or human left unaffected by GMOs. GMOs are toxic, even though companies like Monsanto &  corporations like the FDA tell us they are safe. There are a lot of people in positions of power who are in a conflict of interest, invested in the success of companies like Monsanto. It all comes down to money, and they are choosing profits over the health of the people they are supposed to be protecting. More on that in the video link below…

It’s time to sweep away ignorance and start wising up to what is really going on, we need to stand together. My American cousins who live in Cali please educate yourself on Prop 37 and vote YES! Hit Monsanto where it hurts, their bottom line. They have no business in our food industry, and should have fell apart after the World Wars were over.

I slightly ranted, I’m only human and this issue is something I’ve very passionate about.

Remember that Knowledge is power, the more you know the more power you have.

I stumbled upon this set of videos later today via youtube. It’s been broken up into 10 separate videos but well worth the time it takes to watch them. It’s well researched and wonderfully put together.
