Tell The Usda To Stop Dow Chemical’s "Agent Orange" Crops

The overwhelming majority of American support GMO labeling. So how come we can’t get? The big chemical companies have infiltrated our government agencies like FDA, USDA and the other regulatory agencies, With their people and they are making decisions that only reflect the interests of Monsanto and gang. While it is understandable that here in America we have a working capitalist system that has made us great and the corporate structure that makes up these companies has to answer to their shareholders and make money for them. But t what cost? Human lives? Our government and the people we have elected that are there to serve and protect us from harm, both domestic and foreign have decided it is not necessary in this case of GMO labeling. Our government has let us down. Even though 75% of the American people want GMO labeling our government has decided that the chemical company’s interest are more important than the people that voted them in office. Its time to take back our country and make our politicians do OUR bidding and stop pandering to these big corporations that are making money by creating an unsafe and unhealthy food supply system just to satisfy their bottom lines and their share holders. So what if a few people die from ingesting unwanted, unlabeled and unhealthy GMO food, that’s OK., right? Wrong! We have a right to know what is in our food whatever it is. Label it or don’t put it in our food. Label it or toss it. We must put pressure on everyone in government and let them know what we want and what we don’t want. And this issue must be a grassroots movement because the Monsanto gangs spent and continue to spend hundreds of millions of dollars on marketing to have their way. We will never match there marketing dollars in opposition to GMO labeling so we must rise up as a nation of individuals and put this issue and the importance of this issue right in front of every American. Let’s get this ball rolling and beat these bastards.

Boycott The Traitor Brands!

The food industry giants exert a great deal of pressure on what we eat by their incessant marketing to all of us, especially to the younger generation with their sugary breakfast foods mostly. Adults have the option not to buy foods that are unhealthy and are proven causes of many diseases like cancer, diabetes, hypertension, heart disease and many more health problems (reference: "The China Study" by T. Colin Campbell, PhD considered by the medical community to be the most comprehensive study of nutrition ever conducted). And the way we adults determine what is healthy to eat is buy reading the ingredients on the labels that are required by all manufactures by the United States government through the USDA and the FDA and other governmental agencies. As long as the food manufactures list the various ingredients in the foods they sell us on their labels we, the consumers can determine what we want to put in our bodies. If we make a conscious decision to eat foods that have excessive amounts of unhealthy ingredients such as sugars, salts and fats then we are the ones responsible for our poor health, but if we are NOT aware of what we are eating or don't know enough about the specific ingredients to determine if they are harmful to us, then putting those ingredients in our food supply without our knowledge is a CRIME. And the worst crime is NOT LISTING THE INGREDIENTS on the food label The food industry advances with great strides in growing and processing foods that are easier and cheaper to produce in order to make more profits for their shareholders and that's OK because that is the way our system works. We are now able to manipulate many of the genes that are the basis of living organisms like the foods we grow and eat through what is called genetic engineering and can create crops of corn, soybeans and other that are resistant to insect damage by killing the insect pests that attack the plants. And these plants are called Genetically Modified Organisms or GMOs. What we don't know is how this genetic modification will affect the people eating them. So what happened to our options of deciding what to eat and what not to eat? The food industry will continue the practice of genetic engineering in order to create more plentiful crops and larger harvests of bigger and cheaper food, once again to do their jobs and make more profits and satisfy their stockholders but what they should not do and cannot do is feed us these genetically modified food products, first of all without telling us by not labeling the foods as GMO foods and more importantly testing these food products prior to selling them to us and guaranteeing that they do us no harm. And until they do I would rather not play Russian roulette with what I feed my family and eat myself. So until we get positive test results of what the effects of these GMO foods are I for one do not want to eat them. For whatever reason the food industry does not want to label GMO foods. Why? Are they that bad? So we must enlist our government to force the food manufactures to properly label all foods that are genetically modified as GMO foods. We must stand together!

Stop Eating Genetically Engineered Food!

First of all I don't eat GMOs because I don't know what effect GMOs will have on me as a human being. I am not a guinea pig or a lab rat. And most importantly I will not support the corporations that profit from the sale of these products. GMOs must be stopped here and now or they will consume the food industry and destroy our food supply system. I eat ORGANIC, ORGANIC, ORGANIC. It may cost a little more now but I will save more on medical bills later. A Plant Based Whole Food Diet Organically Grown is the best way to go. Healthy eating.
