    Hello!


    My name is Anna Swenson. I am an action committee member of North Delta Cares out of Clarksburg, Ca.


    We are a non profit fighting to save our community that is ground zero the the BDCP project.


    Would anyone from your Organization be interested in speaking at one of our weekly community discussions? We meet every Thursday at 6 pm in Clarksburg. We have a regular group that attends . Its held in a dinner house name Husick’s.


    One of our missions is to unify the Delta/Estuary communities to rethink how we manage CA water. Come up with sensible solutions that don’t rely on bureaucracy.

    We also want to educate our community of the ties with GMO’s, Fracking and BIG AG.


    I am looking forward to hearing from you.

    Hi, I’m a student at the Brooks Institute in Ventura. I’m searching for an anti-GMO expert to be interviewed for a short film about the food industry today, specifically the development and consequences of GMOs. I’m aware of some of the work that this team does and I would truly love to interview someone from your organization, if possible.


    I truly appreciate your valuable time and consideration.

    It would be easier to convince producers of food with no GMO content to label products as certified as such. There would be less opposition and there would be a financial incentive to do so. Many people shopping would be curious as to what non-GMO meant who would otherwise go about their lives not even knowing about GMO. You see the point. If enough producers did label their products as non-GMO content. Such a scheme would be cheaper than fighting GMO producers and a non labeled product would be suspected of having GMO content.

    I realize that people like to be informed when they are referenced. So this is just a courtesy note to let you know that I referenced you in a book which I recently authored entitled, “GMO Food Poison Handbook” which is now available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.


    Thank you for your efforts on this subject.


    Should you choose to acquire a copy at some point, I hope you find it to be a useful reference tool in your endeavors.


    Best wishes,

    Sacramento I just received an email from the group about Senator Evans gutting her Wine Labeling Bill SB 1040, The problem is it’s printed in yellow lettering and very light blue and I can’t read what it says. Can your resend what is in the yellow & light blue on black coloring so I can read it and do what is requested. Others may have the same problem.

    Thank you.

    Huntington Beach, I am currently a High School student and I wanted to know if there was anything I could do to directly help the label gmo movements. I have been conducting research over the recent months and have now gone completely eliminatesld processed food from my diet. I have found it very difficult to identify GMOs and NON GMOS at the grocery store. I really want to help any way I can to advance the cause. Thanks, Nick Swanson

    I just learned of your group (6/3/2014. I’m aware of Moms Across America and their meeting with EPA. I live in VA and have been on my soap box about the importance of organic foods and the dangers/contamination of Roundup and other herbicides.. I contacted VA reps (Kaine and Warner) both blew me off. When informing my contacts, eyes glaze over and they’re not interested in the message. I live in the little Civil War town of Culpeper about a 1-2r to 2hour drive to Washington, I will become more active but, unfortunately, at this time, I’m limited with my right shoulder/arm and scheduled for surgery on July 16. Who are your contacts in Virginia that I may contact? Thank you.

    I am located in North Hollywood, California. I marched today May 24, 2014 in the Global Rally against Monsanto and GMO’s. Thank you for your efforts and to everyone out on the streets today, helping to raise awareness for this very important concern. I support Marianne Williamson for US Congress here in California. She shares concerns about GMO’s and I am glad to pass along any pertinent information to her campaign.

    The GMO Deception

    What You Need to Know about the Food, Corporations,

    and Government Agencies Putting Our Families and Our Environment at Risk

    Edited by Sheldon Krimsky and Jeremy Gruber

    Foreword by Ralph Nader

    ________________________________________

    “If you do not understand why there is so much opposition to GMOs, nationally and internationally, this book is the place to start.” —Marion Nestle, professor of nutrition, food studies, and public health at New York University and author of Eat Drink Vote: An Illustrated Guide to Food Politics

    “This eye-opening collection of essays by numerous experts lays bare what global corporations like Monsanto are attempting to foist upon us, as well as how activists around the world are fighting back to preserve our children’s future.” —Dick Russell, environmental author

    “The GMO Deception is the most comprehensive resource covering all areas of this complex topic.”

    —Ken Roseboro, editor and publisher, The Organic & Non-GMO Report

    ________________________________________


    With media buzzwords like “non-GMO,” “biotechnology,” and “genetic integrity” being thrown around, the complexities of the GMO debate can be hard to swallow. Whether it’s the issue surrounding the labeling of genetically modified food, the march against Monsanto, or the Right to Know movement, the Council for Responsible Genetics, a premiere biotechnology watchdog group, wants to shed light on this divisive issue. The GMO Deception: What You Need to Know about the Food, Corporations, and Government Agencies Putting Our Families and Our Environment at Risk (Skyhorse Publishing, June 2014) is a comprehensive, easily digestible look at the social, political, and ethical implications of genetically modified food.


    Edited by Sheldon Krimsky and Jeremy Gruber, with a foreword by Ralph Nader, The GMO Deception gives voice to some of the world’s most distinguished scientists, science writers, and public health advocates, including Michael Hansen, Vandana Shiva, Frances Moore Lappé, Bill Freese, John Fagan, Michael Antoniou, Claire Robinson, Philip Bereano and Doug Gurian-Sherman, among others. Together, their essays address the GMO debate and answer important questions like:


    • Are GM foods safe and healthy for us?

    • Who really controls the power structure of food production?

    • Why is it so difficult to get GM foods labeled in the US?

    • What kinds of regulations and policies do we need?

    • Should animals be genetically modified for food?


    We can’t afford to be in the dark about how genetically modified food affects our health, our environment, and our dinner table. From “Why GM Crops Will Not Feed the World” to “The Biopiracy of Wild Rice,” every facet of the debate is explored. The GMO Deception presents a broad, immersive portrait of an issue that’s not going away.

    I just called my state senator, Sen. Joel AndersonDistrict: CA036 Phone:(916) 651-4036 and they said so far he has voted AGAINST GMO Labeling. I suggest you publish a list of positions of all the state legislators so we can use this to vote them out of office if they do support GMO’s in our food. Thank you for your work.

    Hi, my company was recently approached by the International Food Information Council Foundation (IFIC) about a partnership to share content online. In phone conference, they assured me they are a nonprofit and only present science-based information on food and nutrition issues and in no way lobby or are influenced by Monsanto or other like companies. However, upon a bit more digging, I came upon a packet they drafted on “Food Biotechnology” (http://www.foodinsight.org/foodbioguide.aspx). I would like to speak with Pamm Larry about her thoughts on IFIC. Current partners include Harvard School of Public Health, Web MD, etc. but sponsors (which are more hidden, as is this referenced article) include Monsanto… I have also stumbled upon interesting links between the Monsanto and IFIC staff… Thoughts? I need science-based evidence and examples of involvement or reasons for not getting involved to present to my company if I have any chance of preventing moving forward with a partnership.


    Thank you!

    Chicago illinois, Have you read Senator Dick Durban’s response to “our” petition to have GMO foods labeled? He quotes the proponents, who argue that farmers will yield more crops and that nutrients will be increased. I’m hoping you have, and I too would like to review and share your arsenal of medical studies (in vitro and in vivo, animal and human) showing how plant genetics affect animal and human genetics, carcinogencity, allergens and other sideffects or disease, and I wonder if you caught the documentary about India’s farmers using Monsanto seeds and pesticides/herbicides who are committing suicide in droves (60,000 in a few short number of years) because Monsanto sells them on the idea of the reduced need for pesticides/herbicides coupled with a temporary or introductory deflated cost of pesticide/herbicide products, and then when the true need for greater products is revealed, Monsanto raises the cost of products substantially, causing the family to suffer and/or loose their farms and livelihood. And finally, were the number of U.S. farmers loosing their farms and the cost of food so different now than they were 100 years ago or 20 years ago, that the profits of several thousand farmers trumps the health of several hundred million people, or should I say the profits of Monsanto trumps the lives of billions of people? Certainly, the food that can now absorb great amounts of Roundup into it’s cells for consumption along with its overwhelming genetic strength can’t be good for humans on either level. Please look into this also. I await your report so I can give Durbin some important feedback. Thanks for your kind attention and reply. Please be sure to pass my idea on to other GMO activist organizations so that their subscribers can tell their political representatives the truth about GMO’s. Call me if you wish (312) 554 5407

    NOT GMO, use GE or anything that says Genetically SPLICED organisms.


    We have genetically modified our tomatoes for 100+ years, all that is needed is a small artists brush, but Glyphosate KILLS these. Genetically SPLICED organisms NEED GLYPHOSATE to live.

    Please correct the language so we stop giving the GMA the means to destroy our opposition to GE Foods.

    Our Biofitness students (all freshmen in our integrated Biology, Health, and PE class) have been researching and analyzing the safety and labeling of genetically engineered foods and the science and controversy behind it. The driving question for this multi-week project is: “Do genetically engineered foods pose significant risk to human health and should we, as a society, require that genetically engineered foods be labeled?”


    Every 9th grade student is individually writing an depth research paper and analyzing at least one actual scientific journal in preparation for a community event where teams of students will take a stance on the driving question. Community members will also be asked to vote on topic.


    The event is at New Tech High (920 Yount Street, Napa) on the evening of Wednesday, April 2nd from 5pm-6pm. We would be honored if any of you would be able to attend and make sure information being provided to the public is as accurate as possible. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions. We also hope that you may help us with encouraging other community members to attend.


    Thank you for your time and consideration!
