Here is a great read on the types of foods, oils, and other filler ingredients, that Americans are exposed to while other nations, have better standards. The sad part is, those same companies, adhere to those better standards for food in other countries, but not in ours.
Nothing will change in our country unless we tell these companies, we don’t want to use your products any more! Are we so addicted to these products that we cannot say no?
In fact, these companies are donating millions of dollars to what, save in some labeling cost?
Could all the money that went to stop GMO labeling went to just cover the cost of that process? Instead they want to keep the ingredients, mislabeled, and the actual food source, a secret.
If companies, can afford millions or more in donations to stop the process of labeling, doesn’t it seem odd that it’s so hard for them to ad a simple 3 letter label on their products. What is really at stake here, why not give the consumer a choice, isn’t that what this country is about?
How long have GMO’s been in use? What do we really know? Wasn’t smoking cigarettes considered fashionable, acceptable, and completely safe in hospitals just 40 years ago? What are we going to find out in 40 years about GMO’s?
Below is a complete list.
Countries that currently ban certain foods and GMO’s. And currently 20 states are considering GMO legislation.
It doesn’t seem fair, that we have been buying certain products for years, and we trust that they are the same as they were 30 or 4o years, ago, and they are not. They have replaced natural ingredients, with genetically modified ingredients.
In my family, we do, continually, use the same brands, for generations. Believe me, all these major brand companies know that too. You can make a change, you don’t have to stop using your favorite products, tell them, put a note on the Facebook page, send out a Tweet, take 5 minutes and call one of the numbers and tell them how you feel.
Many people are just unaware, that bigger companies, umbrella smaller companies with different names that seem organic and natural and good for you, but are actually containing genetically modified products.
Morning Star Farms is, in fact, Kellogs. Cascadian Farms is General Mills. Honest Tea, is Coco Cola. Kashi is Kellogs. I used to think I was being healthy by choosing Kashi, then I found out it’s Kellogs too, and contains GMO’s.
Personally, I want the choice, of knowing, if it has GMO’s in it or not.
