I know this is a surfing website, but if you didn't march today, at least sign this petition to stop Monsanto the right to ban GMO labeling in individual states. if we have no control over the food we eat there is no future for our survival let alone surfing.

We definaltly live in a different world. I was watching on the weather channel a few weeks ago how they put this stuff in the air to dictate if it should snow or not.Man is playing with fire.

Just to play devils advocate; is there definitive proof that gmos are actually bad-for-you? A couple of studies I found have been debunked by respected scientists. While im not a big fan of adding hormones and other additives to our food supply (I always buy organic milk for my kids etc) I cant help but think food and safety watchdogs are looking out for their own interests too (ie donations donations donations)

Funniest thing about this to me is that it's peoples choice. Stop eating GMO corn and soy and start supporting local farmers. If everyone cared enough to do that then the company would be forced to be more responsible in the least. Genetic engineering isn't going anywhere but we shouldn't have to subject ourselves to being guinea pigs for the first generation.
And you don't have to be. It's the ignorant masses that are the guinea pig and to be honest I think it's sweet justice. If you choose to live in complacent ignorance then you have no control over your own fate.

the problem with this statement is GMO's are not labeled. some people don't have access to locally grown or organic food. also some people are not educated on the subject. 99% of public schools don't educate children on how to grow their own food and the benefits of non GMO organic foods. also Monsanto spends millions of $ on disinformation propaganda. if they were labeled people would have freedom of choice.

"APRIL 27, 2012, APPLE RIVER, IL – The little town of Apple River in northeast Jo Daviess County, Illinois is the hometown of a big man - Terrence Ingram. Though not big in a physical sense, when it comes to saving the American Bald Eagle, there is hardly anyone in the United States held in higher regard than Ingram. His years of documented research and expertise regarding eagles and the work of the Eagle Nature Foundation, founded by Ingram, is in great part responsible for the bald eagle being removed from the “Threatened Species List “ in the United States.
Unfortunately, it was not his knowledge of eagles that the Illinois Department of Agriculture sought when they paid an unannounced visit to his home in March. It was his bees.
In the March 21, 2012 issue, The Prairie Advocate published a news release from Ingram that reported the theft of $5000 of his bees and bee hives on March 14. Ingram said that before they had left for their granddaughter’s wedding in Texas, the hives had been cleaned and made ready for new spring swarms."
