How to Say NO to GMO in Our Food Supply! What You Can Do!

So according to polling data, the vast majority of consumers want GMO foods to be labeled as such.  So far, the US and Canadian Governments have ignored the wishes of their citizens.  Now I don't know about you, but that just isn't sitting too well with me.  If you want to make a difference, first,  make your voice heard and turn the tide on GMO labeling, take the next two minutes and sign the National Health Federation's petition on GMO labeling.  Stand up and tell your government that consumers have a right to know what we are consuming!!

When you cannot or don't buy organics, shop for foods that do not contain corn, including high fructose corn syrup, as almost all of the corn in the US is GMO.  Remember too, that corn is in a lot of processed foods and $100-billion fast food industry rests on a foundation of corn. Chemical analysis from restaurants across the United States shows that nearly every cow or chicken used in fast food is raised on a diet of corn.

Update 10/8/11:
Launching soon and backed by not only, but also by five of most well-recognized organizations in the world of organic and non-GMO food: Mission Possible World Health International, Citizen’s for Health, NaturalNews, Organic Consumers Association and The Institute for Responsible Technology (Jeffrey Smith's Stop GMO’s group).  Finally you will be able to shop online and buy organics at wholesale pricing of up to 60% off

It's like a Sam's club but focused on products for green, healthy living for you, your family and your pets!!  You can even shop specific products for any dietary restrictions you or your family members might have like gluten free, vegan or even diabetic needs.  

Plus I love the idea of shopping online for groceries to save time and more fights with the kids at the market over what to toss in the cart!  Now Momma's in charge! 

All your favorite organic and non-GMO products will be represented there, including Annie’s Organic, Organic Valley, Earth’s Best, Tom’s of Maine, Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps, Bob's Red Mill, Health Valley Organic, Preserve, Kettle Classics and literally hundreds of other brands, covering food, baby care, personal care, household, pet care, dietary supplements, BPA free, non GMO seeds of all the fruits and veggies you love and much more.   Shopping by non food attributes like BPA free, paraben free, fragrance free or non toxic is easy too!
