Please pass the GMO bill in CA

Janet seems slightly stronger each day and we are doing various things to get the small intestine to unblock.

But, if you know anyone in California, please encourage them to Vote Yes on Prop 37.

Can’t decide who is telling the truth?

If GMO is good and GMO is safe then why do the makers spend so much money to keep secret which foods are GMO?

If you are certain that the concern is baloney, why do you mind telling us which foods are GMO?

This is typical of the stuff I see on sites that I believe are useful.
Last year, Bt toxin originating from genetically engineered Bt crops were found in 93 percent of pregnant women tested and 80 percent of umbilical blood in their babies. Now, results from a German study shows that people who have no direct contact with agriculture have significant concentrations of glyphosate in their urine. Glyphosate is the active ingredient in many broad-spectrum herbicides, including Roundup
Urine samples collected from city dwellers in Berlin all tested positive for glyphosate, with values ranging from 0.5 to 2 nanograms per milliliter (ng/ml), which is five to 20 times the permissible upper limit for glyphosate in German drinking water
Research published in 2010 showed that the chemical causes birth defects in frogs and chicken embryos at far lower levels than used in agricultural and garden applications
Glyphosate has also been linked to decimation of intestinal probiotics, endocrine disruption, DNA damage, developmental and reproductive toxicity, and more

I think GMO is banned in the EU and in Turkey they won’t even allow GMO animal feed to come in.

Also, GMO pollen contaminates neighboring fields. How do we stop that?

And Mike just sent us this nice link:
