GMO food is everywhere now and I wanted to post this important information. What affects California will affect us all. They supply a major portion of the fruit and vegetables we buy in our supermarkets. Californians are putting forth a ballot initiative that will hopefully appear on the November 2012 ballot requiring labeling of the GMO foods in their markets. This is a link to Label GMO`s where there is more information. The FDA does not require DNA altered product to be labeled. Monsanto says that the public doesn`t have a need to know. Well, I sure as heck want to know what I`m purchasing and feeding my family. If Californian`s succeed this will likely go nationwide. I signed the petition yesterday.
Next you might want to learn about GMO corn that produces it`s own pesticide. Here is the link GMO Corm. This corn is regulated by the EPA as a pesticide. Remember Agent Orange?
As consumers we have to make a real effort to stay on top of issues concerning our food supply, among other things. It`s getting difficult to buy raw milk and some organic sellers have had a rough time with the USDA. It`s a changing world.
