More reasons to cut GMO's out of your diet and the diet of anything you eat. This article is on health recoveries by patients who stopped eating GMO's on doctors advice (I sure wish my loved ones had doctors like these!!)

Rebecca,

I heartily concur. We Californians MUST lead the way and make sure that Proposition 37 passes this November! Then we can initiate the domino effect using consumer pressure, pushing food companies to reformulate their products for the U.S. as they have already done in Europe. I doubt any of them will stay with the same recipe if that means they have to include such a damning statement on their packaging!

Sarah, if you have time, I would love to hear your thoughts on this California ballot initiative.

Thanks,
Ellen

I just saw the Future of Food film and was completely blown away. I had no idea how detrimental GMO's are to our world. Advocating the voting for labeling of GMO's and seeing how willing people are to learn about the dangers of them has given me hope that we can do this, that we can get rid of them!

The degree to which GMO's have penetrated the American diet is staggering.

Almost any processed food that contains corn (or it's oil), soy (or its oil), or canola (rape seed) oil is a GMO product.
Over 90% of the production of those 3 commodities in North America is GMO based crops.
