GMO television ad airs in Australia

It’s the first of its kind in the world. A short but graphic TV ad is airing in western Australia. It exposes the  public to the 2012 Séralini research study, published in the US science journal Food and Chemical Toxicology,. This important study links consumption of Genetically Modified (GM) food to cancer, liver and kidney damage. This raises serious questions about the Barnett Government’s promotion of GM farming in Western Australia.

California’s Proposition 37 – a chance to speak up for better, healthier food

As we get closer to the November election, things are heating up in California. A fast and furious controversy over the consumer’s right to be informed is centering around Proposition 37. This measure, if passed, would create mandatory labeling for food containing GMO’s – food crops / ingredients made from genetically modified organisms.

As the  most common GMO’s are corn, sugar beets, soy and canola are key ingredients in so many foods, it behooves consumers to read labels and become more educated about this issue.

Check out this newly released poster about this important topic. It’s an eye-opener.

If California does manage to get this proposition passed, will it be a harbinger for the rest of the nation?  To date, at least 19 states have tried to pass similar labeling laws but failed. Perhaps California will lead the way to success – and to improved health for the nation.

The real evidence of the harm of GMO food

Finally, there is scientific, understandable evidence of the negative effects of genetically modified (GMO) food crops. Scientists, farmers and informed consumers are speaking up in Jeffrey Smith’s new documentary Genetic Roulette. Smith is the founder of Seventh Generation, the well-respected laundry product company.

See this eye-opening film. Learn how scientists of the FDA itself deemed GMO’s as dangerous – and were ignored. Find out how farmers have lost countless animals due directly to GMO feed.

Become an educated consumer. It’s a step forward towards real and lasting health.

The case against genetically-engineered food crops grows stronger

While agricultural biotechnology corporations such as Monsanto continue to tout the benefits of genetically engineered food crops, scientific evidence is finally and perhaps irrefutably coming to light as to the harm it presents.

A report released last month – GMO Myths and Truths – offers a peer-reviewed body of scientific and other authoritative evidence of the hazards to health and the environment posed by genetically modified crops and organisms. The report came from two respected genetic engineers who strongly caution against the use of GM food and crops.

As consumers get more savvy about what’s in their food, what’s in our personal care and beauty products often gets by us. Yet many major manufacturers continue to use ingredients considered to be toxic.

They have been found to cause all sorts of health issues including kidney damage, rashes, even linked to hair falling out.
