Consumer power and GMOs

Posted on Updated on

GM crops are on their way to England, post-Brexit. Not only could this be a ‘devastating own goal’ for our farmers, according to Friends of the Earth – but it could also be a health hazard.

So Mums, let’s use our consumer power to keep GMOs and deadly herbicides out of the food we, our children, and our children’s children eat. You can read our article on the subject in The Ecologist here. And if people say to you ‘you are causing children to starve and go blind’, or ‘we’ve been genetically modifying food for centuries so it must be ok’ – these are falsehoods and it’s important to point that out. One of the best weapons of the GMO industry is lack of information amongst the general public. Let’s stop that from being the case.
