We believe you have a right to know: what is in the food you eat.
Many Corporations which say they support Organic etc., actually use some GMO's in the foods they sell and are giving money to fight Prop 37, the California Right to Know 2012 ballot Initiative.
Instead, buy the following brands that have donated in support of Label GMO:
•Baby’s Only Organic
•Nature’s Path Organic
One of the negatives about eating GMO's is that it lowers the birth rate etc. I heard in the past few weeks, Jay Leno tell a joke about in the USA, we have the lowest birth rate etc. More and more people are coming down with cancer, about 1 out of every 2 people will get cancer now etc. There are many problems that come with GMO's.
From a trader's perspective, once the population knows what is in their food, the corporations of the brands that are recommended to boycot, will feel it in their pocket books:
Kellogg, PepsiCo, Coca-Cola, General Mills etc.
Read the article and find out about these corporations and if they are hit hard in their pocket book, there might be a nice short on the horizon.
Wishing you the best,
PS You may want to sign their petition at the end of the article warning "natural food" companies trying to stop you from knowing what products contain GMO's.

Same companies that brought Agent Orange and DDT, also created GMO's.
Same story: those companies promoted those things were OK, till their false advertisements were proven wrong.
Cancer is on the rise and the birth rate is at a 16 year low in America and GMO's came on to the market in the 90's.
All lab testing of GMO's (Studies done outside of America) caused a rise in cancer and lowered the birth rate in those studies. All other countries except America have GMO's labeled!
The consumer has the right to know.
I personally saw, when I ate GMO canola oil, the basal cell carcinoma I was healing from, flared up within 30+ minutes of consuming it. Everything else on my plate was organic accept for the catchup that contained the GMO canola oil. By accident at another time, I ate some GMO corn and once again the basal cell flared up, during the healing process. I removed all GMO's from my diet and eventually healed the Basal Cell Carcinoma.
The body is fighting off cancer all the time, we don't need to be eating GMO's which adds to cancer growth in the body.
My mother died of lung cancer, my next door neighbor died of cancer, one of my friends who ate a lot of sugar: which is all GMO beets now, died of cancer. About 1 out of 2 people will get some form of cancer and it has increased since GMO's have been in the food supply.
You, Me and Everyone, should have the right to know, what is in their food!!!!

An alarming new study released today shows that a variety of corn engineered by Monsanto has been linked to mammary tumors, kidney and liver damage and other serious illnesses in the first ever peer-reviewed, long-term animal study of GMO foods.
As a result of the massive breast tumors, liver and kidney damage, it was concluded that around 50% of the males and 70% of the female test subjects died prematurely, compared with only 30% and 20% in the control group. By two years of age, at the end of their lives, the scientists also found that 50 to 80% of female rats had tumors, compared to only 30% of those eating non-GM food.
Unfortunately, Monsanto and other GMO and agrichemical companies will do their best to prevent the public’s Right to Know about these potentially dangerous products in the food supply. In fact, Monsanto has just dumped another $2.9 million, for a total of $7.1 million, into the fight to prevent you from having the basic Right to Know what’s in your food.
Can you chip in $15 or more today to help us pass the nation’s first mandatory GMO labeling law so consumers can have the right to know if they are eating genetically engineered foods?
This alarming new study raises many questions, and one of the central questions is: Why is this the first long-term health study of GMO food that has been on the American market for over 15 years?
What this study proves is that more research on GMOs is urgently needed. It also makes it clear that until those studies are conducted, consumers like you should at the very least have the right to know which foods contain GMOs and which ones don't - so you can make healthy choices.
Please help us spread the word about this important new study. Forward this email to your friends and family, share it on your social media networks, and pitch in as much you can today to help us get the word out.
No volunteer meeting this Saturday. Instead – I’d like to ask all of you to please do one thing to spread the word on this initiative. We have less than SEVEN WEEKS until election day – and even less for mail in ballots. You are all on this list because you said this is important to you. Now is the time to get involved!
- Place a Yes on 37 yard sign in your yard or window, and ask a friend to do the same? (I can provide yard signs!)
- Put a Yes on 37 bumper sticker on your car, and ask a friend to do the same (I can provide stickers!)
- Put flyers out in your office, store, restaurant, lunch room, club meeting, etc. (I can provide flyers!)
- Write a letter to the editor anytime you see an article on GMO’s – especially this breaking news story below. Ask the papers to endorse it in light of this study. Or if they already have, praise them for doing so – or if they have opposed it, ask them to reconsider in light of this study. (The study is a BIG DEAL – you’ll want to read it!)
- Watch the movie “Genetic Roulette – The Gamble of our Lives” or attend the Seeds of Doubt conference with a friend or three (see details below)
- Table or simply hand out a dozen flyers at an upcoming LB event (concerts in the park, expos, farmer’s markets, races, beach clean-ups – anything where people gather!)
- Spend 10 min. reading the Yes on Prop 37 website – watch our ad, see all the groups, etc. that have endorsed this, read a press release or two – and then share that info. with friends and family
- Forward this email to friends
- Got other suggestions? I’m all ears!
A lot of states are watching and waiting to see how this goes in CA. If it passes – they’ll work on a Right to Know initiative in their state as well. And a lot of countries are waiting to see how this goes as well, because the US is one of the last first world countries that doesn’t mandate the labeling of GMOs (Russia does. China does. The EU does. 50+ countries do.). The world is watching – and we are down to the wire. Monsanto alone has kicked in over $7 MILLION to fight this initiative. We need your help.
See below for info. on the new study, movie screenings and conference.
BREAKING NEWS: Massive Tumors in Rats Fed GMO Corn in First Ever Long-Term Study - Genetically engineered corn was linked mammary tumors, kidney and liver damage and other serious illnesses in the first ever peer-reviewed, long-term animal study of these foods. The findings were published today in the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology. Press statement: Press Statement
Renowned experts Don Huber, PhD, Michael Antoniou, PhD, Gilles-Eric Seralini, PhD, and Jeffrey Smith, present the latest science & research behind the detrimental effects of GMOs and the impact on our health and environment.
Saturday October 6th, 2012
LAX Hilton Hotel
9:00am - 1:00pm
Join concerned health care practitioners and the public at this life changing event. This research could forever change how doctors treat their patients. These are the experts and researchers who have studied genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and genetically engineered foods (GE) and are here to present their research and discuss the findings of what is now apparent years after the introduction of these foods.
This is the science you need to know!!

NOW we can understand why Monsanto and partners are so desperately fighting California’s Prop 37. This list is truly sickening.
GM labeling on all food products is mandatory in Europe, but here in America consumer’s are left in the dark as to exactly what they are eating.
Here is the list of Genetically Modified Foods – get ready to clean out your pantry!Prepare to blow chunks, this list is shocking. A few general observations: The availability of Non GM food vs. GM food is about 50/50. Most “brand name,” products and corporate giants genetically modify their foods. Most foods listed under the “non-genetically modified,” section are not well known and are not considered “mainstream.”
It is so unbelievably sad what is happening here. Would people here be ok with genetically modified humans, of course not. And what is the difference in the case of tampering and playing god with nature, our land, we are one with the earth, this is just so stupid and so insane. Why do people act like sheep. Until big brother tells them otherwise they just fall in line and accept whatever the system wants for them. I will only eat food from Europe now, I'm just so saddened by this tragedy, this unthinkable assault. Monsanto's seed is mixing in the wild and destroying millions of years of perfect evolution just so Romney and his cronies can make a buck. They will, and I surely hope, they all burn in hell for this horrific and disgusting display of corporate greed.
