For nearly 30 years, OCA and our predecessor group, the Pure Meals Marketing campaign, have been educating shoppers and farmers concerning the hazards of genetically engineered (GE) meals and crops, calling particular consideration to the truth that these “Frankenfoods” and crops are all the time accompanied by and contaminated with poisonous pesticides and chemical compounds (comparable to Bayer/Monsanto’s Roundup/Glyphosate, and Syngenta/ChemChina’s neonicotinoids).

GMO meals and their companion pesticides and chemical compounds destroy the surroundings, pollute the water and air, kill bees and different pollinators, and poison our our bodies, metastasizing the diet- and environmentally-related persistent illnesses and broken immune techniques that now plague the vast majority of the inhabitants, together with our youngsters. The nation’s persistent illness epidemic, which troubled 12% of People in 1984, earlier than GMOs and extremely processed meals dominated our diets, has now risen sharply to degrade the well being of roughly 60% of the inhabitants. This persistent illness epidemic units up 145 million People to grow to be victims of most cancers, coronary heart illness, weight problems, diabetes, and, as witnessed lately, genetically engineered viruses comparable to SARS-CoV-2.

From the start, company agribusiness, chemical firms, and GE technocrats (intertwined with Large Pharma) have understood that customers are cautious of GMO meals and medicines, and can attempt to keep away from these merchandise if they’re correctly labeled as “genetically engineered.”

After many years of campaigning, OCA and our allies have been proper on the verge of forcing nationwide GMO meals labeling, using the technique of organizing on the state label with poll initiatives and grassroots lobbying. However simply when Vermont’s hard-fought 2014 obligatory GMO meals labeling regulation was about to come back into impact, in the summertime of 2016, forcing Large Meals to label, in impact nationwide, not simply in Vermont, the Obama Administration, Congress, and a gaggle of natural {industry} “traitors” got here to the rescue of the Frankenfood foyer. The Obama “Darkish Act” preempted the precise of states to implement GMO labeling and mandated as a substitute a bogus federal labeling regulation, stuffed with loopholes and exemptions.

The industry-friendly labeling regulation on “Bioengineered Meals” simply got here into impact a few weeks in the past. It’s cleverly designed to keep up the looks of labeling, whereas truly maintaining shoppers at midnight about which meals are contaminated with GMOs and their poisonous companion chemical compounds.

As we’ve stated all alongside, the one actual safety shoppers must defend themselves towards hidden GMOs and their companion poisons is to purchase meals labeled as “USDA Natural” (or within the case of animal merchandise, these licensed as grass-fed or pastured), to develop your individual, or else to purchase native and regional merchandise from farmers and ranchers that you just belief.
