October is Non-GMO month!

There is so much debate on genetically modified foods, and October is Non-GMO month. So learn about GMO's and be informed. This weekend, there is a rally in front of the White House. Check out the facebook page on this event - https://www.facebook.com/#!/event.php?eid=253665024648042
GMO's are banned in 40 countries...but not the US. Why not? For the love of money is the root of all evil. The biggest genetically modified crops in the US are Corn, Soy, Canola, and Cotton. So unless a processed food package is certified organic, if it has soy, corn, or canola in it, it's extremely likely it's from a GMO crop. Genetically modified foods are known to cause organ failure, sterility, allergies, and even death. You have a right to know what you are eating! Foods that contain genetically modified ingredients need to be labeled. Alcohol and tobacco require a surgeon general warning, why don't GMO's? This article is interesting, stating that they can't label them because it would scare people. http://blogs.desmoinesregister.com/dmr/index.php/2011/10/12/state-department-biotech-labeling-would-scare-consumers/ Well they SHOULD be scared! Seriously...very scared. We have the RIGHT to know what is in our food. Avoid GMO's at ALL costs! Avoiding processed foods is better for your health anyway. If you must buy something that contains soy, corn, or canola, make sure it's certified organic. Certified organic products cannot contain organisms from genetically modified seeds.
Please read the book "Seeds of Deception" by Jeffrey Smith. This is a must read. Follow his page on facebook- https://www.facebook.com/#!/responsibletechnology
