I hate being conspiratorial but it's difficult to remain objective when govt keeps trying to harms those that put them in office.

I'm growing my own nutrition - that's the only way to avoid GMOs.

No Gmo Alfalfa - Stand With Farmers In Toronto - April 9
 
Next week, in front of St. Lawrence Market in Toronto, CANADA, I will be attending a gathering in support of Canadian Farmers who do NOT want the GMO - Alfalfa Crop to be planted this year. As you know, as a crop matures and produces it's own pollen, seeds, etc., GMO plant material drifts onto non-GMO fields. Then, Monsanto can go after non-GMO farmers and 'fine' them for 'using' Monsanto 'seeds'.

The rest is obvious. Eat as much locally grown organic produce as possible. Grow your own, or find a local farmer to buy from. Share a weekly 'vegetable box' in season with a friend or a neighbor. Learn to can your own tomatoes. Do not purchase processed food products. For example, I just learned Heinz Ketchup is GMO; out goes the Heinz Ketchup in my fridge. Here, the buying power of the consumer can have a major impact. Make your own health toothpaste, fluoride-free with baking soda - recipes online, etc. etc.

GET POLITICAL. Call your local government representatives - are they representing your best interests when it comes to food safety? If not, SPEAK UP. Our lives are at stake - yesterday read another piece on GMO products - they are possibly designed to 'silence' the human genome. In other words, GMO is not just about making money. It's about getting rid of the 'useless eaters'.

Namaste, Andrea
