GMO Labeling for My Pets, But Not for Their Human Mom? Go figure!

Tuesday, November 05, 2013

Here it is, 5 a.m. and I just gave my boys their multi-vitamins for cats. On the label, proudly displayed, says "GMO free."

Amazing that food in CA do not have GMO labels on food items, but my pet products do!

Day 16 of my calorie course correction and going strong and staying in my range.

Wishing all a happy day.

    C'mon, Washington! I sure hope we pass I-522 on GMO labeling. The fight looks a lot like the one agri-biz kicked up when the American Diabetic Association pushed to get the food labeling requirements we have now passed into law. You would have thought that was going to mean the end of food production. Instead it's a basic and useful tool we take for granted and that saves lives for people with certain health conditions.

    I see it as similar to how we assign the burden of proof in our legal system. Where is the fair and beneficial place to put the burden of proving that something is true or false? Who has the info? Who can and should bear the costs of supplying it?Clearly, on the manufacturers and producers. The consumer has no other way of knowing and can't afford to find out. If the law could lead to confusion and/or if GMO is no problemo, agri-biz has the money to provide the information and education; consumers don't. They certainly are overwhelming us with outside money to try to defeat the bill.

    Also, we cannot have a free market without transparency and complete information. That's just microeconomics 101. I'd sure like to see the money that's being spent to defeat our bill in WA being spent to inform the consumer.

    That whole GMO labelling issue makes me angry. I am worried about what we are doing to future generations. How much cancer does it take before we learn?

    I'm not saying my own cancer was caused by that...we will never know it's cause, but we are really putting a load on our bodies with so many toxins and unnatural things in the environment.

    Yes, that's amazing. The rest of the world labels their food, but the US has Monsanto's money fighting it here. So far, they're winning. It's a sad state of affairs.

    No GMO labeling is starting to take off THANK GOODNESS! Ask for your co-op to purchase Non-GMO products.

    Don't even get me started on GMO's and Monsanto & others. If there is one thing I will influence it is to get this practice stopped!
