We urge you to make New Hampshire the first state to ban the sale of foods containing Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). With countries all over the world banning GMOs and boycotting US crops, we urge you to show the rest of the country that NH is leading the way in organic farming, green energy and stopping Monsanto.
In New Hampshire our state motto is "Live Free or Die". We don't want to give up our food freedom to corporations such as Monsanto that will help us die quicker with untested GMOs.
What are GMOs?
Genetically Modified Organisms are living organisms that are genetically engineered to resist disease, pesticides, or insects. This is done using recombinant DNA technology in which desirable traits are hand picked and restructured into DNA.
Who is Monsanto?
Monsanto is a company based out of Missouri that is the major culprit of developing the GMO technology and producing GMO seeds for the Genetically modified crops. They also happen to be the company behind the Roundup pesticide spray. Monsanto also has a lot of push with our government and their products are getting passed by the FDA by paying the government off. Major companies donate millions to prevent labeling of GMOs to keep their sales up and the people silenced.
What does all of this mean and why should I care?
The GMOs that have been passed by the FDA were only studied for a short period, and they were only tested on animals. Therefore, we really dont know about the long term affects they have on humans. However, even the research that was done on rats showed decreased liver functioning, a general toxicity to rats internal organs, and infertility. There are also effects on the environment with one of the most pronounced concerns being that the genetic modification will lead to creating resistant-bacteria.
The word is slowly being passed around, as more studies are done, showing that GMOs are poisonous to our bodies and environment. The creator of this Cause encourages you to do your own research and talk to some friends and family that have some information about this topic. The more information you get, the more you will realize that our government is basically poisoning us.
