Good Day to you precious readers. I’m grateful for those of you who read this blog and take these words to heart.
Anyone who knows me knows I am quite passionate when it comes to the quality of our food (hence the freak part). This is especially true when it comes to genetically modified foods. Informing people about the dangers of genetically modified food is the reason I first started this blog. I have recently joined a couple of online anti-GMO organizations. I have also signed up as a team leader, so to speak, for a national 4th of July event through Moms Across America. There is almost 100 events across the nation that will take part in educating people about the inclusion of GMO’s in their food, the dangers of such foods and what they, as consumers, can do about it. Knowledge is power. Put the right knowledge in front of the right people and change is inevitable.
But I propose something more radical and I can’t get it out of my head. What if we start a nationwide campaign and call it JUST ONE DAY. What if, for just one day, we didn’t buy the Frankenfoods that are lining supermarket shelves everywhere. This doesn’t single out the stores that sell the goods but targets instead the companies who make them. This includes not buying from the organic companies owned by the big conglomerates; Muir Glen, Cascadian Farms, Lara Bars and countless others. What if, for just one day, we spent our hard-earned dollar on foods that matter: quality protein sources and plenty of vegetables and fruits. Not soda or cereal or snack foods but real food that support and encourage health and sends a message to fake food producers that we just won’t eat it anymore!!
Since a majority of people, from no one state, aren’t willing to stand up and demand labeling on foods made with GMO ingredients, (which, by the way, makes up more than 70% of packaged food on YOUR grocery aisle shelf), it makes more sense to me to hit them where it hurts: their bottom line. And the bottom line is this: if people stop buying it, manufacturers will be forced to either stop making them (ideal) label them (informed decision), or use non-gmo ingredients (acceptable).
