  • Thank you so much for your compassion for THE HUMAN DILEMMA, and trying to keep people of all ages healthy: by going against Genetically Modified food. We need your voice, we need your strength.

    Where I live there is a migratory bird pattern. As I hear the birds fly over, my heart goes out to them: they are flying hungry! So much land now is GM. Their bodies are so wise: don’t eat the wheat, soy, etc. Because of this, they are starving!

    Then there are the bees, the frogs, the ants, the worms that are all being killed! I have seen it my eyes. My husband and I have planted an organic garden, are using ladybirds, that we bought and brought in, and a natural product that we found at : www.FreshwaterOrganics.com, and trying to save our small place in this earth...BUT, have seen no bees and heard absolutely no frogs.

    It just breaks my heart to think of what we are doing to our precious earth and our children, plus the elderly: their health is being so harmed because they are not getting the very minerals that they need (they are becoming nutritionally poor), and their immune systems are being so damaged. ...(you know all of this, and the weight of it must be heavy on your heart too!)

    We are all part of The Family of Man, and we can become strong and go with strength against Monsanto and all other GM producers.
    On June 18, 2010 in 80 different sites in Europe, there will be a festival against GM Food: www.altercampagne.free.tv....see at: OrganicConsumersAssociation.org

    I just wanted to thank you so very much for your efforts, and the efforts of all of your colleagues: our earth needs your efforts.

  • Here is one more thought from: Allison...alisonsart_work@yahoo.com

    I am an artist: creating mostly contemporary art, BUT, it is very difficult for me to create when I feel the weight of all of the tragedy that is being created with Genetically Modified food. The very food that we need for life is being harmed!

    Here is a thought: we need to find some way to get out products (prints, plaques, tile designs, clothing...whatever), for people to see daily that will inspire them, educate them, and motivate them. It is all based on: The Law of Attraction. Either creating a company that can make and market designs about saying: No to GMO. Or, there is a company that has products that people can put on their own designs, and they make up the products and mail them out - internationally. The cost is small to set up. You do make very little on the products, BUT, that doesn’t matter. What matters is that many people can see and buy the products to get educated and to educate. The company is: www.CafePress.com.

    CafePress gives you a site to set up. They have over 80 products to choose from, do the printing and the mailing. I am not capable of setting up a "site", because I don’t have the knowledge of "html" and setting up a nice looking, appealing site, but maybe you can find someone to do that.

    Please look at CafePress.com and see what you think. It would be a great way to touch as many people as possible, and to have them have something to see each day to remind them of GM products.
    This is all free advise, because I care and want to make a difference in this world!
    Thank you, Thank you once again for all of your efforts!
