I just loved this post by Ocean Robbins and The Food Revolution team and asked if I could share it over here with you, my beloved Thyroid Loving Care community.
The Daily Show Takes On Monsanto by Ocean Robbins
In this Daily Show special report, Jon Stewart and Aasif Mandvi find out that greedy farmers have threatened the livelihood of Monsanto’s heroic patent attorneys. Spoiler alert: It’s hilarious! (Apologies for the 30 second ad.)
Monsanto tells us that their products are about the best thing to come along since sliced bread. For years they’ve been promising that Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) would reduce pesticide use, increase yields, reduce water consumption, and offer foods that are more tasty and more nutritious.
I wish they were right.
But in the 20 years since GMO crops first came on the market, studies have found that they have led to higher pesticide use, and no meaningful improvement in flavor, nutrition, yield or water requirements. Instead, what they’ve created are plants that are engineered to withstand massive dosing of toxic herbicides, and plants that function as living pesticide factories. Monsanto’s Bt. corn, for example, is actually registered with the EPA as a pesticide.
With concern about GMOs and other changes to our increasingly toxic food supply growing fast, and with deaths from cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and other lifestyle and environment-related illness continuing to mount, more and more people are demanding to know the truth about our food.
In response, the 200,000+ member Food Revolution Network is offering a free online Food Revolution Summit. From April 25-May 3, some of the top food experts on the planet will be providing insights and clear calls to action in this teleseminar that is also being broadcast without charge on the Internet. Speakers include Paul McCartney, Tony Robbins, Michael Pollan, “Food Babe” Vani Hari, Dr. Joel Fuhrman, Dr. Neal Barnard, Dr. Michael Greger, Dr. Vandana Shiva, and many more.
Monsanto, McDonald’s, and Coca-Cola probably aren’t too happy about the prospect of tens of thousands of thousands of people getting informed and mobilized. But if you love life, safe food, and the truth, then you might want to check it out and sign up for free here.
