GMO’s, Round-up and Labeling

large_10251232954_GMO

There is a lot of information on the web about GMO’s, Round-up Ready crops and the fact that Unilever and Monsanto (among others) spend a whole lot of money to prevent you from knowing what food contains them.

If we are informed and have money to spend on food, UNITED, we have a lot of power as consumers. Personally, I want to know what is in my food and I expect that if a crop has been doused in a chemical, I want to know about it. I don’t care how much money these companies might loose. I don’t care how many people working there may loose their jobs. They have a responsibility to us. To life itself.

It used to be that we trusted companies that created food products. Why would anyone put anything in a food product that would not be good for our bodies? Now we realize that we were naive. It’s about making money, of course, not keeping the population healthy. The people working for these companies have a responsibility, to all people. They need to take the blinders off. Our government officials need to put their population first and stop the love-fest with these companies because of their financial contributions including ‘creating jobs’.

Some companies are starting to (quietly) remove GMO’s from their food products before they are required to add it to the label. Do they see the writing on the wall? Yes, I think they know what is coming and that is a backlash of informed consumers reminding them that we are not like the cattle in their factory farms.
