The Importance of Letting Your Voice Be Heard.

By now, we all know what happened with Prop 37 in California.  Even if it had passed, it only would have required the labeling of GMOs to give consumers the choice over whether to purchase them.  It would not have done anything to determine the safety of these organisms for human consumption.  I have only been seeing studies which confirm that genetic modification leads to horrific tumors and early death!  I think it’s high time that we stand up and ask the government to do the testing they should have completed 16 years ago!  I created a petition on the WhiteHouse.gov website to respectfully request that they fund some impartial testing by U.S. based scientists who are not associated with Monsanto or any of the several bio-tech/chemical companies that are responsible for creating these mutating genes in plants that they present as substantially the same as the natural plant.  I say, prove it to us!  If you support this initiative and want to make sure the food you’re consuming is really safe, please sign the petition and share it all over.  Get all your friends to sign.  We need this to go viral to get the 25,000 signatures required in the next 30 days in order to have this be reviewed by the White House.  We can do this!

If you need more information about GMOs to refute the myths that are going around, I found this report on www.earthopensource.org that compares the known facts with the myths that are spread by big agribusiness:
