    google Dr. Thierry Vrain

    He maintains that label GMO’s are a diversion from the real danger: glyphosate aka Roundup

    Labeling GMO’s will not protect since they are drenching non GMO crops just before harvest with pesticide/antibiotic roundup.

    We need to shift focus.

    Very Important to read this ANTI- labeling bill. Its at the congress level and would apply to all states. It takes away states authority to demand labeling.

    Dear LabelGMOs.org,


    Did you know that GMOs could cause numerous health issues? Did you also know that if you eat too many GMOs, you could possibly die. They also harm our environment. GMOs are genetically modified organisms that can be found in your food. People make them by cross spreading foods DNAs to make them a new type of food. I think that the most important aspect of the “food system” for consumers to be concerned about are GMOs because they can cause health issues, they can create superbugs, and they harm the environment.

    GMOs can cause many health issues. For instance, they can cause many types of cancer and also illnesses. According to an article titled 10 reasons to avoid GMOs, “Numerous health problems increased after GMOs were introduced in 1996.” (http://www.responsibletechnology.org/10-Reasons-to-Avoid-GMOs) This proves that when GMOs were invented, people didn’t realize what they were eating and started to get sick. This also proves that GMOs are unhealthy for our bodies therefore people should stop creating them. It is possible to die if you eat too many GMOs.

    10 Problems Genetically Modified Foods Are Already Causing states that GMOs can create superbugs. Superbugs are bugs that survive the chemicals and toxins sprayed on the foods. According to the article, 10 Problems Genetically Modified Foods Are Already Causing, “The good thing about designing a plant with an insecticide gene is it eliminates a lot of unwanted bugs. The downside is that only the strongest insects survive, resulting in a new class of superbugs resistant to both the crops’ implanted toxins and spray-on chemicals.” (http://listverse.com/2013/06/22/10-problems-genetically-modified-foods-are-already-causing/) So, that means that the chemicals are sprayed on the foods. The chemicals kill off the small unwanted bugs but the stronger bugs that are worse survive the chemicals and stay on the crops. Also, the methods GMO companies use to pest proof their crops kills bees and butterflies.


    As stated above, GMO chemicals harm the environment. The environmental impact of GMOs states that the chemicals used to make GMOs kill bees and butterflies. As seen in the article, “Bees are hugely important in the pollination of many food crops, but are unfortunately extremely endangered by modern agricultural techniques, such as GM crops. Monarch butterflies are specifically at risk from GMO maize plants.” (http://www.onegreenplanet.org/animalsandnature/the-environmental-impact-of-gmos/) So this means that the agriculture techniques are dangerous to both the Monarch butterfly and the bees.


    GMOs have now changed the way we look at our household food. They are a big problem to our Earth. GMOs affect our health and our environment. Most people don’t even know what they are putting in their own mouths. Since GMOs can cause cancer they should be illegal. I am now concerned to what others and I have been eating.


    Sincerely,


    Lauren

    HI, My name is Jody Shepard, I live in Antioch, California, but have lived all over the USA.. I just had the pleasure of reading a study in the toxicology report in the Mother earth magizine.. I have had almost every one of these health issues for the past 10 years, but severely over the past 4 years.. My pancreas has stopped processing, I take Zen pep (5-6 a day) my EPO levels are low without reason and my red blood cells multiply, I have had ten phlebotomies in the past 2 years to control, they say i have erythromytosis not polycethemia vera, because of a bone marrow biopsy ,I spent 14 days in the hospital with a small bowel obstruction which was actually a leaky gut, I have been given a crohns diagnosis, & I have skin rashes and migraines.. I have blamed it on being poisoned for years but I didn’t know the connection, I blamed mainly tomato, potato & yeast products… It took food journaling for months to figure out anything from a box or processed food was responsible..what can I do to help you,?? I want to stop this poison from hurting our future generations..I have years of documented doctors and hospital visits including UCSF for stomach issues, & skin issues.. I think there has to be a way to start a class action suite, or at least get warnings on foods like on cigarettes, warning people of these chemicals.. my cell number is 6782967348 if I can do anything at all.. I felt I really needed to reach out to you.. Thank you for your time, Jody Shepard

    FRED!! Wake UP!!


    We are working on climate chaos by working on GMO labeling. According to the UN (and others), Industrial Ag contributes over 50% of greenhouse gasses. It also kills microbes that sequester more carbon than rain forests. Changing our ag system not only will slow down climate chaos, it will reverse it. We have a right to know what kind of food system our purchases are supporting. Clear labels provide us with transparency and true choice.


    http://unctad.org/en/publicationslibrary/ditcted2012d3_en.pdf


    64 countries label and NONE had an increase in food prices. You are being lied to.


    What stores do you shop in? NOT true about labels already.


    Labelgmos.org is a volunteer organization. The only person who gets any reimbursement is the web designer…and they work at a greatly reduced fee. I’ve volunteered 40-100 hours a week since January 2011. So much for that chance at spreading negativity.


    We have talked with former paid shills who spew your sort of meanness then feel awful about how they are selling their souls to make a buck. As volunteers, we don’t have time to constantly engage in those who are paid to lie online. So your comment here will stay, but if you continue to try and engage us in an ongoing fashion…we don’t have time to keep track of you so will ban you from the site so that our website does not become your platform.

    Actually “Inna” (if that’s your name)- that may be your opinion about why Prop 37 lost, but both I and pollsters know better. I talked with tons of folks who were really upset once they learned the lies they’d been told. in fact, I’ve not met one real person who was not shocked at their tactics, even if they don’t support labeling. So there you go. If you think the election process with all the dirty advertising is equitable, then do some research on Prop 29 from 2012. Same BS tactics. Whether it’s oil, pharma, tobacco or food issues, they play dirty. If you think they play fair, well….not much I can say about that. I would prefer mutagenesis labeled, too. (BTW..another sign to me that you are a troll as impartial folk don’t know or care about this and would definitely not communicate in this way) This is about labeling.transgenics, cisgenics, dsRNA and RNAi at this point. Weight gain? I assumed since you are so well read that you read the actual study. No? Just read the read the BS PR that they fed you? They count weight gain a measure of health- not organ health, behavior, etc., which is much more indicative of health. Like I said…dig deeper. Or don’t, as I doubt you will. I am even more convinced now you are a troll. No one who is impartial spends this much time commenting in the manner in which you write then checking back. Impartial people don’t have the time to waste or the inclination.
  • commented 2014-09-17 16:28:36 -0700
    Actually, Pamm, the reason you lost on the labeling issue is that voters “got it” that they were being hyped. Don’t think voters are so stupid as to get slammed by “slick” advertising — if that were the case, the energy companies, with many times more $$$ than the biotech companies, would have “convinced” voters through “slick manipulation” that global warming isn’t real. That argument just doesn’t hold. Plain and simple: It lost because the voters saw through it.

    ? I never mentioned weight gain.

    I still would LOVE to have an answer from you guys on why there isn’t more concern (whether “shrieking” or not) about having to label organic food that’s been processed using mutagenesis and radiation (which, btw, have had much less scrutiny and study than genetic engineering). Or does the “right to know” only apply to genetic engineering? If so, why?
  • commented 2014-09-17 14:56:01 -0700
    Actually, Inna, none of the 64 countries that label GE foods include animals that eat GE feed in their laws. If we had been able to label them (which we could not, see next sentence) we would have been accused of being the most restrictive and onerous law on the globe, not in alignment with the rest of the world. FYI- in California as elsewhere, ballot initiatives can only be about one subject. Something that eats GE feed is not the same thing legally as something that is GE. So the law could have been challenged and would have probably lost. Our law was in line with the global standards. All the exemptions were similar to international labeling laws. We cannot touch alcohol labels as they are governed by the fed. We did not lose because of being in alignment with the rest of the world. We lost because the a very slick PR company twisted the truth and in some case lied. http://www.carighttoknow.org/democratic_party_supports_prop_37_beware_of_fake_mailersNo sure who “Jessica” is. The GE sweet corn on the market is mostly frozen or canned. GM corn on the market in corn flake and chips is not sweet corn, it’ maize or field corn so we are eating plenty of it (if you still eat corn). If folks want to know the origin of the sugar beets, they are entitled to it. Yes, we are all aware that GE is a process, thanks. “Why don’t you guys shriek” sounds pretty trollish/shillish to me… or a tad impolite at any rate. We, too, read plenty of science. But I’m sure, as a well readm nonshill type, you may have heard about the study that shows that science in Chemical Land isn’t unbiased. In addition, that study you mention is very questionable…weight gain is not that good of a measure of health. If it was, the US would be considered the healthiest country in the world. FYI: it’ not. No major harm? Dig deeper with a more critical eye.

    Jessica, there is hardly any GMO sweet corn in the markets. I wonder what you’re eating.

    You DO know, don’t you, that the California initiative to label GMOs would have exempted livestock that’s fed with GE crops, from labeling? Huge loopholes, which is why it was defeated. Additionally, re: your comment about GE sugar beets — yes, most sugar beets are genetically engineered. However, if you read up on it, you will know that the processed sugar (final product) is molecularly identical to non-GE sugar. So the “gmo” label on sugar beets would be false. Additionally, I wonder if you’re aware that genetic engineering is a process; did you know that many organic seeds use a (safe) process called mutagenesis or irradiation? Why don’t you guys shriek for those to be similarly labeled, in your “right to know” ? No, I’m not a shill for Monsanto; just a well-read consumer who puts science before hype and ideology. You will also find it interesting that over 100 billion (that’s with a B) animals of all types have been fed GE crops for many years, with no damage; major study just came out. And no, that study is not a shill for Monsanto either.
