It is critical that people become informed about what is going on with our food supply if things are going to change. All of the petitions, protests or marches in the world are not going to stand much chance of bringing about change so long as millions of people continue to support the industrial system with their pocketbooks. Every scan of a bar code in a supermarket is a VOTE, people. If we continue to use our *Votes* to support processed, modified, soy-filled, corn-filled, JUNK…then that is EXACTLY what we will keep getting!
The strongest statement we can make, the best message we can send to corporations, is to back up our words with action…the action of consciously deciding to buy local, to make those organic fruits and veggies the most scanned items in the system. Stop voting for junk and start voting for your own health…and the health of all future generations.

From my personal experience, many people lack concern and even curiosity when a conversation about GMOs ignites.
In one case, a reporter from InfoWars/Prison Planet went to a Whole Foods “Natural” Food Store and asked customers what they thought about labeling foods containing GMOs. Most didn’t know what she was talking about. They were clueless about GMOs, what they are, and their dangers. These are people shopping at Whole Foods.
Meanwhile, the fast food drive-through lanes are lined up with expensive vehicles driven by those who can afford organics but won’t spend a few bucks more for decent food. They’d rather make their car and mortgage payments while maintaining a hectic lifestyle and ignoring healthful dietary habits…” Full Story Here
