In November, please vote in support of Proposition 37 in California! If California passes it, other states may do the same, paving the way for foods to be labelled in other countries like Canada!
This video features Dr. Vandana Shiva, a scientist and environmental activist from Delhi, India and San Francisco, California. She reveals what drove her to becoming an activist was attending the first meeting of the biotechnology industry where they set up the World Trade Organization and treaties were created to force third world countries to replace traditional agriculture systems with mono-culture and GMOs. How the patenting of life has boosted the application of genetic engineering in agriculture, leading to ecological contamination and the prosecution of farmers whose crops become contaminated. That California and genetically engineered foods have a long history beginning with the FLAVR SAVR tomato. The FLAVR SAVR tomato was the first genetically engineered crop product to be commercialized and California was where it was farmed. It was the first genetically engineered crop to fail. Mendocino County was the first county in the U.S. to prohibit GMOs.
THERE ARE MORE THAN JUST HEALTH REASONS TO ABSTAIN FROM GMOs! GMO CROPS HAVE POLITICAL IMPLICATIONS THAT AFFECT THE WORLD'S FREEDOM AND LIBERTY!
Just Label It! We Have the Right To Know What We Eat: http://youtu.be/vD2idQ2aJgQ.
• GMOs are in 80 per cent of packaged foods in the U.S.
• GMOs HAVE been proven to be UNSAFE by a group of French scientists who SECRETLY carried out an independent study based on the American diet: http://youtu.be/eeW5yUSqdhY
• Over 40 countries have demanded GMOs to be labelled
• 92 per cent of Americans WANT GMOs labelled: http://bit.ly/SkRbxv
If you're wondering about the health issues in regards to GMO foods, here is a video I made a few days ago: http://youtu.be/AGdn8T9fDJc.
Let's not forget, GMO foods are heavily sprayed with chemicals, pesticides and insecticides -OR- they've been genetically modified to create these chemicals on their own. Then, we eat it! So, the pesticide issues goes hand-in-hand with GMO foods.
I also talk about how you CAN eat healthy on a low budget: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RpkuRR6dxOo.
