Monsanto is not going to cave in
I am proud of the Polish bee farmers and their accomplishments to agriculture.
Poland is the first country to formally acknowledge the link between Monsanto’s genetically engineered corn and the Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) that’s been devastating bees around the world. What that means is that bees have been disappearing. If the bees disappear we are in big trouble because of their important role in pollination. And who has bought the leading research company for CCD? Well you guessed it! Monsanto
I saw this trailer on the film”Queen of the sun“. The film is about the disappearance of the bees. It is very interesting and frightening at the same time. This is what the Colony Collapse Disorder is about.
What that has to do with GMO? Well, in America there are no requirements to label GMO foods as you can see in this graph
Most governments are protecting the citizens and requiring labelling of GMO foods. But the general public in America does not even know what GMO is;
We need the FDA to regulate the GMO foods, so that we have a choice. We need the FDA on the people’s side for once and make labelling of GMO foods mandatory.

Here is a video if you have never heard of Monsanto and where they come from. They are originally a chemical company so why are they in food production?

Dr.Vandana Shiva has fought for the health of seeds. She has educated the world on how GMO food is made. As I understand it the corn is taken and combined with pesticide and then grown. Lab rats suffer kidney and liver failure for eating these foods. What does it then do to us ?
What does GM do to our health? We have no idea. We eat vegetables and fruit in good faith. We think they are good nutrition. But what has been pointed out is that if they are not grown organically or non GMO what do we have?
I got this list sent from a friend; It makes sence. Try the difference in celery for instance. The organic ones are tasty and smell rich. The beauty of celery is that it can help balance water in the body and is helpful with sugar cravings.
Again I have to refer to Michael Pollan and his food rules. If it does not rot eventually it is not food!
I am fascinated by Dr. Vandana Shiva and her spirit. She is one of my heroes.
