Sign the petition: Unless you are actively seeking information, you seldom hear about congressional bills that are often (maybe usually) not in your best interests. As a consumer it seems obvious that we should have the right to know what is in our foods. We could then make intelligent decisions whether or not we want to consume that food. Believe it or not, many in congress disagree. A current example is the “dangerous anti-GMO labeling bill dubbed the ‘DARK Act‘ – Denying Americans the Right to Know Act – (which) has hit a roadblock in the U.S. Senate.” The Republicans have virtually sold out to Monsanto on this one, so the only hope is “if Democratic Senators stand up to Big Food.” If it is not stopped, it would be devastating. “If signed into law, the DARK Act would block all state laws requiring mandatory GMO labeling, prevent the FDA from establishing a national mandatory GMO labeling program, block all state and local efforts to protect rural communities and farmers from the impacts of GMO crops, and prevent claims by food companies that non-GMO foods are better than GMO ones.” Read the short explanation on the link below that was put together by Credo Action, and then please sign the petition. We need to protect human rights as consumers, not the unlimited rights of fictitious persons (corporations).
Watch this and become angry: The chemical company Monsanto is actively spreading (legally forcing) the use of its’ favorite chemical glyphosate everywhere it can. In an article on http://www.addictinginfo.org/ by Jameson Parker, reports that Monsanto “recently made headlines once again when a World Health Organization report found that the ingredient glyphosate was likely posing considerable risk to people.” The legal methods by which it is able to force itself on people in the United States is unbelievable, but what it is able to do in less developed countries should make us all outraged. This film gives you an overall feel for legal corporate monstrosities running amuck worldwide. Watch and listen to experts in many fields who have been fighting Monsanto and other companies often to their own dismay.
