Re: GMO food
Swim is correct. Here, at least so far . . . . we have the luxury of products having to label GMO ingredients.
Americans on the other hand are sadly . . . Daffy Ducked.
Such labelling is not mandatory everywhere.
Monsanto will end up owning and controlling the food chain if the world stupidly allows them too.
People can not fight these power mad uber wealthy and powerful people.
What they can do is educate themselves and learn how to live naturally and with self-sufficiency. There's no doubt that ultimately the product in your stores and supermarkets WILL eventually be nasty GMO products. It is no use waiting until that happens. We need to learn and understand how to grow and propagate our own food before we get to that point.
Many perhaps think they know. How many of you grow your own vegetables? Potatoes, courgettes, beans, onions . . . all manner of veg and fruit.
But how do those people begin that process?
My guess is they buy seeds in packets or small seedling plants from nurseries.
So what is going to happen when you can no longer buy those seeds and seedling plants?
What you need to be able to do, is take the seeds from the vegetables you grew this year and treat them in the right way and store them in the right way so that they are then viable for next year.
This is not a straight forward as it may sound. Every vegetable has its own issues and each one has methods and processes that are needed to ensure you get viable seeds next year.
There are places you can do a course to learn this stuff. I recommend as many do that as possible because it's not going to be long before the only seeds you can buy commercially are crap seeds, GMO seeds.
This site is an extremely good resource for this stuff:
