GMOs and poisons in our food

By
October 23, 2012 |

Hey moms, would you cook an ear of corn for your child and then spray it with poison and give it to them to eat? Well, Monsanto has already done that for you with their GMO corn in which every cell is engineered to contain a pesticide that will kill insects by exploding their stomachs (bt corn). This corn is now being sold, unlabeled as fresh corn at Walmart and coming soon to a store near you along with more produce. Of course, Monsanto tells us it is perfectly safe for your child to eat. What do you think? A recent long term study on rats with GMO corn and Roundup (most GMO crops are engineered to stand repeated sprayings of the weedkiller Roundup) in September reveals that the alarming results are early death, organ damage and especially cancer in the female rats at 80 percent, a huge percentage for such studies. Please help protect your family by voting Yes on Prop 37 to label the foods so you can have an informed choice. It doesn’t ban anything, just lets you know what’s in it like all other ingredient listings. When they say it will raise food prices the “No” people are citing their own sponsored study which adds in the cost of them taking GMO’s out of their product.
