6 ways to protect your family from the danger of GMOs

  

The California Proposition 37 ballot to make GMO (genetically modified organisms) labeling mandatory by state law is approaching. The hope is that if the California popular vote carries it by voting yes, this will set a precedent for other states. 

The European Union (EU) might ban GMO corn in light of the recent French study that clearly showed horrific consequences from a lifetime of GMOs fed lab rats. 

Most EU nations already mandate GMO labeling. Some EU farmers have uprooted or burned genetically modified Monsanto crop testing fields. Europeans aggressively oppose GMOs. These developments give hope to those of us who oppose biotech interventions into the food chain.
