A little bit of good news…

There are a few companies you can still count on

It isn’t all bad news.  There are a few companies you can still count on – keep in mind that corporate mergers take place every day.  When businesses change hands, there is no obligation to notify the public.  One such cautionary tale took place with the company Dean’s, which acquired Horizon Foods.  They quietly phased out the use of organic products without making any changes to the label and used non-organic milk produced under factory farm conditions.  As well, they dropped the quality of their organic soy and began purchasing cheaper harvests from Asia.  Meanwhile, unwitting retailers had no idea that the company had ceased producing the items organically, and continued to promote the products as they had previous to the acquisition.

Right now, these are some of the GOOD LABELS to look for:

Another way to avoid unscrupulous food producers is through an App called Buycott.  If you happen to have an iPhone, this App can be used to check a product that you see in the stores to see what corporate links exist.  You can find it HERE. (Thank you to Miranda for this link!) If I had a cellphone, I would definitely download this tool.

Of course, the best ways to avoid GMOs and toxic additives are to avoid packaged foods altogether.

 

Those stickers on fruits and veggies tell you quite a bit!

4 numbers mean they were conventionally grown

5 numbers starting with number 8 means they are genetically modified (GMO)

And 5 numbers starting with 9 means they were organically grown.

What a sellout ass!!!

Dr. Oz: "Nutritionally speaking, there is little difference between the farmer’s-market bounty and the humble brick from the freezer case."

Dr. Oz: “But for the most part, it’s O.K. to skip the meat boutiques and the high-end butchers. Nutritionally, there is not much difference between, say, grass-fed beef and the feedlot variety.”

Vote YES on Proposition 37 this November 6!

Vote YES on Proposition 37 this November 6!

Story at-a-glance

  • Monsanto recently contributed $4.2 million to defeat California’s Proposition 37 – a bill that would require labeling of genetically engineered foods
  • Many other companies, including Dupont, Dow Agro, PepsiCo, and even some of the largest member-donors to the Organic Trade Association, have also contributed millions to the effort to defeat labeling. Currently, $25 million has been raised in opposition, compared to $3 million in support of Proposition 37
  • Understanding how Monsanto manipulates the system is crucial to understanding why Americans are not allowed to know if their food has been genetically engineered by simple labeling, as around 50 countries around the world already do, including Russia, China and the entire EU
  • The California ballot initiative is an end run around Monsanto’s government controls via the FDA and USDA. For the first time in the US, the decision to label genetically engineered foods will be put into the hands of voters. Your support is urgently needed. Please donate to this historic effort!

If you really care about your health, you will not stuff your body full of food that Monsanto has control over.
