"Back in Europe we have that choice. Our food is labeled and it hasn't increased any costs to the consumer or the farmer." ~ Sir Paul McCartney
"Any scientist who tells you they know that GMOs are safe and not to worry about it, is either ignorant of the history of science or is deliberately lying. Nobody knows what the long-term effect will be." ~ Geneticist David Suzuki
"Each year we have a harder time getting seeds that test GMO free. It is getting to the point where most heirloom corn varieties test positive for GMO's; even growers in remote areas are having problems with Monsanto's GMO corn." ~ Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds
A very disturbing result of our efforts in helping Iraq has been the extinction of heirloom seeds from their country due to our agricultural corporations introducing GMO seeds to Iraq's farming. Luckily, some people had the foresight to save the few seeds they had and Baker Creek has acquired a few species.
I am outraged whenever I hear what we as a society are doing to our agriculture. I can only do a small part on my own: growing my own garden, buying locally and organic, and what I wrote above, but also sharing the information I've found with you and teaching my children to be much more responsible. I hope their generation will THINK before it's all too late.
