Just Say NO To GMO!The good news is that you can Vote With Your Dollars and say a loud NO to GMO! Tell them you're not buying their Frankenfood and pesticides.
When purchasing fresh natural fruits and vegetables, these labels will help you avoid GMO like the poison it is! These labels are for US markets, if anyone has information for other markets, it would be helpful to other readers.
Conventional Food Labels, grown with herbicides, pesticides and harmful fertilizers, have four digits on their label and start with the digit 4. Such as 4922.
Organic Food Labels, are five digits and starts with number 9, such as 99222. You can feel safe to grab all foods with this label, it's organic and safe to eat or serve to your family and animals.
Genetically Modified Labels, start with the digit 8, as in 89222. This is important to know as it clearly identifies the product as GMO. You can drop it and run! Don't forget to tell the supermarket manager why you won't buy GMO. I find managers are interested and more than concerned about what consumers want. They will not continue to stock their shelves with products that consumers reject. If we are to reclaim our health, we must reject GMO.
50 harmful effects of GMO
You can also get a free NO GMO Shopping Guide to print and distribute to family and friends. This guide will help show the hidden forms of GMO in conventional packaged foods. GMO ingredients are in thousands of everyday foods.
Stores aren't obligated to tell you if fruits or vegetables have been genetically modified, or which packaged foods have GMO ingredients, and very few store do! Although there are a growing number of ethical retailers who are committed to informed choices when it comes to GMO products. Here is a List of Retailers by state that endorse The Non-GMO Project to ensure the sustained availability of healthy natural foods and non GMO options.
Like ice cream? Check other ingredients but Ben & Jerry are against GMO and have dedicated their Something Fishy ice cream to that cause.
Have fun shopping and please spread the word against GMO!
Are Americans Apathetic Or Ignorant?Answer: I don't care and I don't know. Seriously, as a nation, we have become lazy and far too trustful that the "authorities" will always tell us the truth. The things that are done in our name are against the wishes of many Americans, we need the world's help on the important issues.
Europeans must easily question our sanity. Thirty countries, including Australia, Japan and all European countries have banned or have significant restrictions on GMO's. The US FDA continues to protect corporations rather than humans, based on studies created by the very same companies who profit from the sale of GMO's. We live in a twisted, corrupt world.

After GMO Dump Pesticides In FoodOnce we've eliminated GMO foods, then we can concern ourselves with whether food is conventionally grown with dozens of pesticides or if it's organicaly, naturally grown, wholesome, fresh, natural, healthy food, as nature intended.
Recently the Presidents' Cancer Panel recommended that consumers eat produce without pesticides to reduce the risk of cancer and disease. We were stunned with an honest report, and realize that this too may have a darker agenda of controlling "food safety" with "safe" chemicals. Washing produce helps removes bacteria but is ineffective at removing toxic pesticides.
The EWG, Environmental Workers' Group, reported on the amount of pesticides in our fruits and vegetables. The EWG came up with two lists:
The Dirty Dozen ~ fruits and veggies with 47-67 pesticides in them, even after thorough washing. Is it accidential that these are some of the most nutritional, anti-oxident rich, foods available?
* Sweet Bell Peppers
* Spinach, Kale and Collard Greens
The Clean 15 Are considered safer by EWG to eat when not organic, it does not say they are pesticide free.
* Sweet Corn
* Sweet Peas
* Sweet Onions
* Sweet Potatoes
"Globalized industrialized food is not cheap: it is too costly for the Earth, for the farmers, for our health. The Earth can no longer carry the burden of groundwater mining, pesticide pollution, disappearance of species and destabilization of the climate.
Farmers can no longer carry the burden of debt, which is inevitable in industrial farming with its high costs of production. It is incapable of producing safe, culturally appropriate, tasty, quality food. And it is incapable of producing enough food for all because it is wasteful of land, water and energy.
Industrial agriculture uses ten times more energy than it produces. It is thus ten times less efficient." ~ Dr. Vandana Shiva, scientist, world-renowned author, and grassroots leader in India. Member of the Policy Advisory Board of the Organic Consumers Association.
