GMO Inside Campaign

Notes from the 2013 Natural Foods Expo that I attended this weekend.

GMO Inside is a campaign dedicated to helping all Americans know which foods have GMOs, as well as the non-GMO verified and organic certified alternatives to genetically engineered foods. ”

This is very important for your animals because we are now seeing studies showing the negative effect of feeding the best – pastured chicken, really free range – when it was raised on GMO grains.

I have been pushing for you to select food for yourself and your animals that is locally, sustainably raised and now we need to up the bar to find meats that are free of GMOs and the chemicals used to grow them.  some of the premade frozen raw foods or processed foods are clean. You need to read the labels and speak with the owners, which is another reason to work with small companies, especially local ones.

“In the US, approximately 94% of soy, 90% of cotton, 88% of corn, 90% of canola, and 95% of sugar beets are genetically modified.”  Think twice of buying new clothes for you or bedding/toys for your animals if not Organic or Used.  “GMOs are now present in 80% of processed food in the US.”

  1. “…the word Natural means nothing.”
  2. “over 60 other countries require GMO labelling. “
  3. “Two labels are good to look for” – a green/white circle that says USDA organic and a blue one NON GMO Project.
  4. “Rather than feeding the world, GMO yields have declined over time.”
  5. “Use of herbicides has increase, rather than decreased, as resistant “super-weeds” develop in GM crops.”
  6. “Pigs fed an entirely GMO diet suffered from severe stomach inflammation.” (I loved the pigs at Camp  Glen Brook where I recently attended a wedding – on grass and fed kitchen scraps!). No GMO on farm.
  7. “GM technology is patented so a few companies control almost all of these GM crops, and they are able to sue farmers for contamination.” (even when that is windborne and not intentional)
