I found another one so I can't resist passing it on so that I can do my part to educate others as to the controversies regarding GMO's.
I was soooooooooo excited to see the post I've linked to for you to review. Please, if you have ANY concerns at all about GMO's or Mansanto or preserving your right to naturally reproducing seed that is nonhybrid, please copy and paste this link everywhere you possibly can and make a committment to follow this case closely, notifying every representative you can of this action!
We just returned for a little trip to the Bahamas to help with the celebration of a dear friend's birthday. While it was a lot of work, it was also a fun time enjoyed by all. Returning to the Ozarks, where Chef Roland and I live, we were greeted by the arrival of Fall with it's clear, crisp skies. Time for a change and to begin wearing the warm clothes!
On our trip, I had the opportunity to speak with other people who had their concerns about their own food production (gardening plans and projects), as well as their concerns regarding GMO's. As more and more people become aware that there are some VERY REAL concerns regarding the food sources that we have available to us, it becomes paramount that we each take whatever opportunities we have to keep the information flowing. Talk with your family, friends, neighbors and any stranger that will listen. Write to your representatives and any organization that you can think of to help enlighten them as to what your food concerns are, especially regarding, but not limited to, GMO's.
I am posting a link that I think gives good information that helps to keep food health concerns regarding GMO's crisp and clear and will help us all start to prepare as we face VERY SERIOUS health questions that demand that we all start taking action. It's the public that must become educated on the issues regarding GMO's, seed monopolies, and the threats that corporations pose when it comes to the foods we have available, or not, for our consumption.
First, I think ALL Americans should read & study the new Food Safety Bill that was put into effect this year. Secondly, look at this link to see what this Wisconsin judge has to say about the issue and then, think about the possibility of other applications of the law as it pertains to self production of any food, such as a vegetable garden and the types of seeds that are available for use. Where are the food activists amongst us??????
I'm very excited in that I've recently come across a website where concerned individuals have the opportunity to collectively address the FDA over labeling Genetically Modified Foods (referred to as GMO's which is Genetically Modified Organisms). If you are interested in the health risks of these Frakenfoods (foods created in a laboratory "like a frakenstein") this is your opportunity to sign a petition asking that the public AT THE LEAST be made aware of which GMO foods are in the public market for consumption and then they can make personal decisions as to whether they would like to consume these products, OR NOT!! Some people might have questions as to what could possible be wrong with ingesting GMO's. I think if you do a little research on bio-compatibility, you will see that it is a VERY serious concern. As the incidence of food alergies and other potentially related food/health/body & mind performace issues steadily increase, it's time food consumers begin to educate themselves as to what the food controversies are really about. So, with that lead in, here is the link that will further address the issue and offer an opportunity to add your name to the growing demand for the labeling of GMO's:
When Roland and I met, I was one of those people who opened the box or can and warmed up the family meal. After our marriage in 2005, I truely began to appreciate what food is really about, not only that it can taste very good, and be nutritious, but that it can be a celebration of who you are and the people that you share it with.
