I am a huge believer in you are what you eat! When I do succeed at eating properly, it pays off - in my energy levels, skin tone, hair, attitude.. and so much more! I also believe that my cancer diagnosis years ago was greatly a result of the poisons I was ingesting, in the chemicals, preservatives and additives inherent in my food choices. Again, today, I'm far from perfect, but I am aware!
One of the things I am PASSIONATE about is trying HARD not to eat Genetically Modified Foods (GMO's). But I don't always know if I've been successful, not all our labels are telling us. I question, "what will happen to our health when we don't KNOW what we are eating?"
Monsanto is trying again to bulldoze these toxic foods into us! Monsanto is a HUGE company with very deep pockets, and highly effective lobbyists! They are big into genetically modified seeds and food. The petition below explains what they are trying to do with our corn, coming soon to our grocery stores. We do not have to accept this fate, WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE... and we can fight back!
Please read and sign the petition, copy the note and pass it on to all your contacts! Be heard and let our food source providers know we want REAL food! NOT genetically modified food that is resistant to toxic chemicals like Round up! Do you think Round up doesn't have an effect on this food as it's growing? It is being absorbed into these plants...how can it NOT be in every bite of sweet corn you take? Do yourselves a great favor, it's easy.. buy organic. But also, let your voice be heard. Please sign the petition below! Share the story people!
Our health and the health of our children are in our hands.
This fall, Monsanto, the corporation who produces roughly 90% of the
world's genetically modified seeds, will try to bring their new, GMO sweet
corn to a grocery store aisle or farmer's market near you.
Unlike Monsanto's other GMO crops -- which are primarily fed to animals --
this sweet corn is intended for direct human consumption.
This is the first time Monsanto has engineered a vegetable that could be
served straight to your dinner table. And if this unlabeled, and
potentially toxic crop succeeds, Monsanto is sure to bring us even more.
As an activist and consumer, we are in a powerful position to pressure
leading U.S. grocery stores to reject Monsanto's new GMO corn.
I just signed a petition telling major grocery stores around the country
that I don't want Monsanto's sweet corn on the shelves. Will you join me
and help stop this unsafe food?
