“Why would Monsanto and other chemical companies spend $41M to defeat a food labeling bill? What is there to hide in food? Plenty.” –Kelly Slater
Monsanto and similar GMO companies poison the land and waters across the Hawai’i Islands with their frankenseeds, creating dust bowl conditions, and spraying pesticides daily, which wash out into the waterways and the surf, effecting the marine life, the reefs, and the kids that play in the water. Every surfer should have one of these stickers on their boards (and I should have that board! 😉 ).
p.s. California’s GMO labeling bill may not have passed, but because of it many have learned about the issue and many moms have woken up.
Besides Monsanto, these are the other major players working to destroy natural seed and own our food: Synergenta, Dow, Dupont, Bayer, BASF Plant Science.
Here’s a $5,000+ donor list / Monsanto-led coalition against Prop. 37 – you know, the companies who tried to help save all the poor folk from paying the extra penny to label GMOs.
There’s also Cornucopia’s EZ chart on food companies and “natural” retail stores who financially contributed for and against Prop 37,
And if you haven’t updated yourself here’s a list of the foods that contain GMOs (the list is loooong, and yes, you are eating them. What, you think celiac’s – and the new slew of dietary dis-ease – is a normal trend?). Ask your favorite restaurant what they serve!
And we always say it, if you haven’t watched it already: Genetic Roulette.
