Woke Up with a Moral and Ethical Crisis This Morning

Woke up with a Moral and Ethical Crisis this morning, March 1, 2012. Something was wrong. I enjoyed thoroughly the “Local Goes Global Party for Good” sponsored by Whole Foods Market Hillcrest at the Caffe Calabria last night. I enjoyed eating two pieces of pizza, and more from my companion. I loved helping out the Whole Planet Foundation. I thought this was a lovely event. but I want to eat organic ingredients and be surrounded by others who know they are making a choice to either support organic or GMOs by the way we are spending our food dollar. I am willing to pay the price for this. I want GMOs Labeled. I have a right to know the ingredients in my food.

The California Initiative to Label GMOs Does Not Go Far Enough For me, But I support the success of this ballot initiative

Look at the words of the CA Ballot initiative:


WE CURRENTLY HAVE A CHOICE IN CALIFORNIA TO SUPPORT THE LABEL GMO’S RIGHT TO KNOW BALLOT INITIATIVE


This ballot initiative seeks 850,000 signatures. The Initiative falls short in my eyes for labeling where GMO ingredients are in our foods, but it is a start to get the conversation going. The initiative exempts from labeling foods processed with or containing only small amounts of genetically engineered ingredients. The good part: It establishes for consumers an organic standard. It also reclaims natural.

INITIATIVE MEASURE TO BE SUBMITTED DIRECTLY TO THE VOTERS


(11-0099.) GENETICALLY ENGINEERED FOODS. MANDATORY LABELING. INITIATIVE STATUTE. Requires labeling on raw or processed food offered for sale to consumers if made from plants or animals with genetic material changed in specific ways. Prohibits labeling or advertising such food as “natural.” Exempts foods that are: certified organic; unintentional produced with genetically engineered material but not genetically engineered themselves; processed with or containing only small amounts of genetically engineered ingredients; adminsitered for treatment of medical conditions; sold for immediate consumption such as in a restaurant; or alcoholic beverages. Summary of estimate by Legislative analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local government: Potential increase in state administrative costs of up to one million dollars annually to monitor compliance with the disclosure requirements specified in the measure. Unknown, but potentially significant, costs for the courts, the Attorney General, and district attorneys due to litigation resulting from possible violations to the provisions of this measure.

ORGANIC UPRISING 2012!

Phil Noble was at the Local Goes Global Party for Good

This is why I like Whole Foods Market. You can choose to buy what you want.

You can support local organic farmers such as Phil Noble, of Sage Mountain Farm. You will find his foods in Whole Foods Market Hillcrest. You can also find him at the Hillcrest Farmers’ Market. You can find foods that also have GMOs and are Genetically Engineered at Whole Foods Market Hillcrest. You choose. If you but the organic and leave the GMOs on the shelf, more organic food will be sold.

GMOs ARE DANGEROUS. WE HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW WHAT IS IN OUR FOOD.


GMOs are Dangerous; We have a Right to Know. The CA Ballot initiative does not go far enough to label GMOs, but enough foods will be labeled so that the conversation about the dangers of GMOs will be begin. The best outcome I see is that people will buy more organic food. Organic Food, for the most part, is GMO Free. The Measure also prohibits Genetically Engineered foods from being labeled as natural foods. Much of our food supply is currently in a state of Food Emergency.

ORGANIC UPRISING 2012


What do we need right now? It is an Organic Uprising. Each of us being an Organic Uprising. We need a lifestyle Shift. By
this I mean we need to get our beat with nature back. This comes as we grow some of our own food.

Prince Charles in this article 2008, states my position:

In the interview the Prince, who has an organic farm on his Highgrove estate, held out the hope of the British agricultural system encouraging more and more family run co-operative farms. When challenged over whether he was trying to turn back the clock, he said: “I think not. I’m terribly sorry. It’s not going backwards. It is actually recognising that we are with nature, not against it. We have gone working against nature for too long.”

HUFFINGTON POST ARTICLE
ON CA BALLOT MEASURE

Who came on board with the CA initiative?

Who came on board next to help?

The Organic Consumers Association (www.OCA.com) came on board. Ronnie Cummins, Alexis Baden-Mayer and the rest of the team were right there from the beginning and have continued to be a driving force for truth telling in the organic industry and keeping the grassroots strong. I admire them immensely. Jeffrey Smith and the Institute for Responsible Technology www.responsibletechnology.org) helped out at a crucial point in our grassroots building. Because they were willing to put out the word to their members to help me get meetings in communities, labelgmos.org (www.labelgmos.org), the original grassroots effort, grew exponentially in a very short time.

WHO HELPED WRITE IT?
WHO BACKED IT?

David Bronner, of Dr. Bronner’s Magical Soaps (Http://www.drbronner.com) decided to get involved. His passion and commitment just blows me away. He is the reason large companies and the various NGO’s finally decided to give this a second look. Without him, this initiative would not be where it is today. Because of him, the Center For Food Safety (Http://www.centerforfoodsafety.org) became involved in writing the initiative. The folks who wrote the actual law did an incredible job. Food Democracy Now (Fooddemocracynow.org) brought its expertise in grassroots support of farmers.

WITHOUT LABELS WE ARE IN THE DARK ABOUT WHAT WE EAT


This is a strong article:
What can be the benefit of the CA ballot initiative?

Labeling would cause an inevitable tide of curiosity among less-informed, well-meaning eaters. Not only would labels infuse shopper’s everyday environments with language about genetic engineering (think about the labeling of high-fructose corn syrup, for instance), but it might also make more people aware that they’re eating the product of an industrialized food chain.

DR BRONNER’S MAGIC SOAPBOX NEWS




The Bronner Family has contributed $1 Million to help put the CA Label GMOs Petition on the Ballot. Monsanto Corp plans to spend millions to defeat the measure as the Multi-National Corp faces off with Californian’s insist they have a Right to Know if their foods are Genetically Engineered. Dr. Mercola, who gave $500,000 to help the campaign was slammed by a Sacramento Bee Reporter. Hundreds made comments. I love The Bronner Magic Soaps. I use the Peppermint. Hope you support this wonderful company.
