About vignetti

"Security is mostly superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable." -- Helen Keller

  1. John Burns says:

    This battle has been going on for over a decade, but as the dangers have gone from Labs to plants, animals, soil and man, people are demanding Natural Organic Foods in opposition to the Genetically Modified Organisms, or GMO Foods in stores.

    Many GMO Foods are already banned in Europe and farmers in Canada and other foreign countries are staging battles against Monsanto and other producers of GMO Foods. Science has already proven GMO products have caused sterility in animals and in some cases where the results have been a Cancer causing “Dioxin”, which in Germany and Europe in January 2011 and May 2012, farmers lost billions of dollars in sales of pigs, chickens and eggs, due to Dioxin contamination. Some scientists say the Dioxin is from the GMO Plants while other scientists say it’s the chemicals sprayed on the plants. Even the Honey Bee Die Off or Colony Collapse Disorder has been associated with the growing of GMO Plants and the chemicals sprayed on the GMO plants, which are killing insects, including Honey Bees.

    All of the hazards to animals and humans have been addressed and people in California are demanding the right to know what foods they are consuming. We should expect Monsanto, Fast Food Producers and major grocery outlets to fight against Labeling because tens, if not hundreds of billions are at stake.

    The one question consumers can ask is, “If GMO Foods Are So Safe, Why Is Monsanto, Fast Food Producers and Grocery Stores Afraid For Them To Be Labeled”? Why would they spend million$ to deny you the right to know what you and your families are eating?
