Back To The Fight Against GMOs

If you think this country is run by corporations rather than the will of the people, here’s a great opportunity to take some of our power back!

Despite the fact that U.S. polls consistently show that over 90% of Americans want labeling of genetically engineered foods (GMOs), neither the federal government nor any state government has been able to enact required labeling.  So far Connecticut and Maine passed GMO labeling bills that would only take effect when other states passed them.

A $10 gift: Make someone smile & help the bees by funding education on GMOs

When I started traveling around the state in 2011 for Prop 37 one of the people I met early on was a woman named Mary, from Santa Barbara. She was an early supporter of GMO labeling and was particularly concerned by the plight of the bees.


Mary and her husband have spent more than a year working on a project to raise money for environmental non-profits. It's a new $10 gift idea called a Boxai, which is getting a lot of attention and was just featured on MSNBC TV in their annual review of "Gifts that Give Back."

Santo: Our Possible Future?

The GMO Movement has generated a large number of documentary films that are currently being used to educate people around the world about the issues surrounding GMOs.  And while these films are invaluable, we need to reach out to the people who don’t normally watch documentaries, but who do enjoy watching mainstream feature films.

Up until now, there has never been a fictional feature film made about the very real possible potential of the GMO technology and what it holds for our future. But now, just such a film is in the works!  This film would have contemporary appeal and would reach a far broader audience than Documentaries ever have.

GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISMS (GMOs) In Pet food

By Caroline O’Sullivan, DVM

In an ongoing effort to take better care of our four legged friends, deciding what is best to feed them is sometimes a challenge. There are standard dry and canned foods, then the specific diets for age, medical conditions, and weight loss. Next come RAW diets and home cooked diets. All of these choices have pros and cons. All of these choices have to be considered for your lifestyle, finances, and the needs of your four legged friend. There are always the physical and medical needs to be considered, as well. Many hours of questions, research, and label reading may go into this decision for the well- being of our friend. But, we have an additional piece of information to consider, GMO ingredients in our food choices.

Former GMO Engineer Drops Biotech and Goes Organic

The “con­ver­sion” of for­mer anti-GMO activist Mark Lynas to GMO pro­moter has gar­nered huge media atten­tion, but Thierry Vrain, Ph.D., a for­mer genetic engi­neer who speaks out against the risks of genet­i­cally engi­neered foods, has far more credibility—and a far more impor­tant story to tell the public.
