  • Jailbreak

    Good Morning, I just stopped in to visit your website and thought I’d say thank you.

    • Brendan Gates – I am greatly encouraged to see that there’s a growing awareness about and revolt against GMO’s put into our food chain without our permission. And to see that children like Taryn are right into understanding the issues & speaking out, that’s just the icing on the cake! I live in Canada now but come from New Zealand, a nation that so far has just tiny traces of GMO’s in the food chain: GM corn was accidentally planted some years ago in New Zealand, and when it was discovered it was ordered to be ripped out / ploughed under, and a whole book was written about the event and surrounding issues (The Seeds of Distrust, Nicky Hager) about the scandal that was termed corngate! Keep up the good fight, make a lot of noise, and as you say 10% we’ll get the non-GMO foodchain we want. Congratulations on doing good work in the fight about GMO’, keep it up mates.

    • The largest anoumt of GM Foods used is not at the consumer level though. It is in the manufacturing level where they have zero regulations for reporting so GM wheat, soy meal, and canola can all be used as base ingredients in conventional foods like pasta, cereals, and breads and not have to identify it.

  • scientists have now grown a buergr in a laboratory. Somehow, I think it will make it’s way to the grocery stores and will eventually be super cheap…but I doubt that Kathleen Sibelius will be chowing down on a laboratory created buergr anytime soon.
