“The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.” Dr. Ann Wigmore
I never thought I would have to speak out in defense of real food, but unfortunately that's exactly where you and I are right now. Currently, 64 countries around the world require labeling of genetically engineered foods, but not the United States, what do they all know that we don't know?
Since the beginning of time humans have relied on growing and saving seeds to plant from one year to the next, nourishing our bodies with the nutrients we need to grow, live and reproduce from one generation to the next. These very seeds that produce the miracle of life over and over again are at risk due to Genetically Engineering.
"And the time came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom."-Anais Nin
I cannot just sit back and pretend this is not happening, so my friend Katharine Rode and me have joined forces and have organized 3 different events all taking place on Sat. Sept. 14th in Sumner, we hope to educate and inform you, our fellow neighbors, about Genetically Engineered Foods (GMO's). Hopefully you can attend at least one of these FREE events and become more knowledgeable about the food you're eating and how I think they're causing havoc to our health, our environment and the future of seed saving.
I'm speaking between 6-7:30 at the Sumner Library.
Thank you for your consideration, Jill Cartwright
I’ve included a few links for more information about Genetically Modified Organisms and encourage you to read more about it. Please watch the Music Video on GMO’s “Question What’s Inside” written and performed by Rob Herring http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lu2qKI2Ju9s and Robyn O’Brien's video, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rixyrCNVVGA&feature=shareThis In my opinion, these are an excellent source of information and a good place to start.
