Big Food, Monsanto and GMOs

I don’t know if you’ve been following the battle going on about labeling foods that are genetically modified (GMO). Its huge news. The state of Vermont just recently passed a law requiring that all foods sold in that state have GMO labeling – meaning the labels will identify if the food has genetically modified organisms or not.

Some research shows there’s a long list of health challenges that come with GMOs. The argument is that these foods are causing health challenges and Big Pharma is in on it. So we eat GMOs, get sick, and the pharmaceutical companies have to continue making drugs and forcing the doctors to give them to us. It’s a vicious circle that never ends. No wonder why the U.S. is on the bottom of the United Nations Life Expectancy list. We are number 40 out of 40. Japan is #1. Even Cuba, a third world country is in a better position than us!

One of the biggest companies involved is a company called Monsanto. They are leading the fight to keep labeling these foods at bay. They are also very involved in the federal government. What’s amazing to me is all the other big companies that support Monsanto that are part of the 300 member Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA). Do you recognize any of these: Dow, Coca-Cola, Nestle, Kraft, Kelloggs, Campbells, Smuckers, Hersheys, and General Mills?

So these are companies that make our food but don’t want us to know what’s really in it. To me that means they are part of the problem, not the solution. What’s the big deal? The big deal is that they know that we won’t buy their crap if we know what’s in it. I think if we are giving them are money then we deserve to know what’s really in our food. It’s time we woke up to what’s really going on. Go here to boycott these companies. And for a helpful alternative that can combat what’s in our foods, go here.

What about you? What do you think? Comment below and get in on the conversation.
