Join Maria Rodale - Fight GMOs

The other day I was feeling overwhelmed and defeated about the whole GMO thing. There is SO MUCH evidence that GMOs and the chemicals that are used in concert with them (like Round up) are destroying our health and planet. Hundreds of thousands of people have signed petitions and answered surveys that they want GMOs at least labeled if not completely out of our food system. (Are you listening, Mr. President?) But then it occurred to me. We have the solution! Ultimately, there is only one way to ensure that GMOs are out of our food supply, and that is to buy, grow, and eat only organic food. Eating certified-organic food is the only way you can ensure that you are not poisoning your children, poisoning yourself, and poisoning our environment. Isn't that worth a few extra bucks in the supermarket? A few extra questions to your farmer at the farmers' market? And the more we buy organics, the cheaper they'll become. So, let's join together and support the businesses that align with our belief that GMOs do not belong in our food. Let's vote with our dollars. The power is in our hands. Will you join me?
