March Against Monsanto

March Against Monsanto, a march in Boston demanding the labeling of GMO’s. We’re going to city hall at 2pm on May 25. The plan, is to start the March outside of the Government Center T stop (City Hall Plaza). We can leaflet and gather to march across and up past the State House, and march through the Common to emerge either at Park Street OR the other side near the Ritz Carlton at the end of Newbury Street.

Monsanto is the nation’s largest pesticide and food/seed company that produces genetically modified seeds and forces farmers to use them. And those crops have been linked to infertility and cancer and other health problems. There’s a new bill that basically grants Monsanto ultimate protection and lets them continue poisoning our food.

Genetic Roulette, by Jeffrey M. Smith, is a truly informative and awakening book about the dangers of genetically modified foods and the easy steps to take to avoid them. According to the film: Americans get sick more often than Europeans and people in other industrialized countries and they are getting sicker and there is a correlation of use of GMO with increase in disease rates. The science behind genetic engineering is haphazard, risky, unregulated, and untested for long term use. Plants have been engineered to either tolerate being sprayed with herbicide and not die or produce their own toxic insecticide that breaks open the stomach and kill bugs that eat the plant. The GMO industry claims it has no affect on humans, but there has been an increase is stomach disorders and many other diseases.

There are only nine GMO food crops: soy, corn (not popcorn), cottonseed (for oil), canola (for oil), sugar beets (for sugar), papaya (Hawaiian and Chinese), zucchini, yellow crookneck squash, and alfalfa (for hay) however their derivatives are found in many processed and packaged foods. These can all be avoided by simply buying only foods labelled “Organic” or “Non-GMO”. This is easy to do on The 80/10/10 Diet by Dr. Douglas Graham.
