[thanks, Rich A]

Our kids' health is at stake. Monsanto wants full monopoly control over 
our food supply.
If we do not stop them now, it will soon be too late.

What are GMOs? The DNA of Genetically Modified Organisms is mixed with 
that of other plants, animals, bacteria or viruses. These combinations 
do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding.

Companies that make GM (genetically modified) FOODS claim they achieve, 
among other things, longer-lasting products or crops resistant to pests. 
However, GMOs are linked to CANCER and other ILLNESSES.

What is MONSANTO? The largest manufacturer of GM seeds, this US-based 
corporation receives government subsidies and does not test its products 
long-term. It makes insecticides DDT and Agent Orange and herbicide 
Roundup, all highly toxic to humans, animals and the environment

* Fresh corn and papaya are likely GMO, and as much as 80 PERCENT of 
conventional processed foods (foods packaged in boxes, cans or bags – 
the longer the ingredient list, the more processed) contain GMOs.

* Over 60 countries ban, limit or label GMOs due to safety, economic and 
ecological concerns, but not the US.

* Policies and business models FORCE farmers to use patented GMO seeds 
that invade native crops and destroy their livelihoods.
