Event Is Coming Soon - Canada Has Gone Where the US Fears to Tread – Monsanto’s Roundup Found In 30% Of Food
Canada has gone where the FDA fears to tread, testing commonly consumed foods for glyphosate residues from Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller – and the results are literally sickening.
The Canadian Food Inspection agency reports that glyphosate, the carcinogenic key ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup, was found in 29.7 percent of 3,188 foods tested in the last two years.
Glyphosate was found in 47.4 percent of beans, peas and lentil products; 36.6 percent of grain products; and 31 percent of baby cereals, the agency report states.
HuffPost report: Only 1.3 percent of the total samples were found with glyphosate residue levels above what Canadian regulators allow, though 3.9 percent of grain products contained more of the weed killer than is permissible.

Obama Signs The Monsanto Protection Act - Seeds Of Death- Full Movie

Obama signs Monsanto Protection Act! It's Time to Label GMOs! We regret to inform you that President Barack Obama has signed H.R. 933, which contained the Monsanto Protection Act, into law. President Obama knowingly signed the Monsanto Protection Act over the urgent pleas of more than 250,000 Americans who asked that he use his executive authority to veto it. President Obama failed to live up to his oath to protect the American people and our constitution.
Today we're calling on President Obama to issue an executive order to call for the mandatory labeling of genetically engineered foods. Not only is GMO labeling a reasonable and common sense solution to the continued controversy that corporations like Monsanto, DuPont and Dow Chemical have created by subverting our basic democratic rights, but it is a basic right that citizens in 62 other countries around the world already enjoy, including Europe, Russia, China, India, South Africa and Saudi Arabia.

Join us in demanding mandatory labeling of GMO foods. Now's the time!

Seeds Of Death is a Gary Null Production all rights belong to him. The truth belongs to all of us! 

The leaders of Big Agriculture--Monsanto, DuPont, Syngenta--are determined that world's populations remain ignorant about the serious health and environmental risks of genetically modified crops and industrial agriculture. Deep layers of deception and corruption underlie both the science favoring GMOs and the corporations and governments supporting them.

This award-winning documentary, Seeds of Death, exposes the lies about GMOs and pulls back the curtains to witness our planet's future if Big Agriculture's new green revolution becomes our dominant food supply.

A Question and Answer fact sheet deconstructing Monsanto's GM claims and Big Agriculture's propaganda to accompany the film is available online:

Our 2 minute video on what you need to know about GMOs...
Please help us in our fight to get Genetically Modified Foods labelled in California. We are voting on Prop 37 in November 2012.
Factory Farming and Giant Chemical companies have spent over $25 Million dollars in the last 3 months to defeat this measure. And they are just getting started. We cannot fight them with dollars.
Our only hope is AWARENESS. If people understood what was really going with our food they might demand change. If we change minds, we can change the system.
We created this 2 minute video to help explain what's going on with GMOs-
Please SHARE on Facebook and Twitter so that friends and family can learn more about what we are up against!

Protesters in Canada, elsewhere march against Monsanto, GMO foods

Thousands across Canada joined others around the world at rallies to decry agricultural giant Monsanto, a company protesters claim behaves unethically in its development and implementation of pesticides and genetically modified foods.
“Millions Against Monsanto” protesters in Toronto also denounced the recent approval of genetically modified salmon in Canadian markets.
“Salmon was approved despite tens of thousands of people standing up in this country and in the U.S. saying that they don’t want it,” said Jodi Koberinski, part of the activist group Beyond Pesticides Canada.
“This is again part of an issue where we’re facing corporate control over the food system and over the rule-making,” Koberinski said.
Monsanto develops and sells a range of seeds genetically tailored to be superior to “natural” crops that have been modified only through selective breeding.
For example, Monsanto sells an herbicide called glyphosate under the name “Roundup,” and also sells seeds genetically engineered to resist glyphosate, which it calls “Roundup Ready” seeds.
A company called AquaBounty developed the salmon many were expressing concerns over. Using genes from other animals, their fish have been modified to grow twice as fast as wild salmon, and will soon be available in Canada.
“It’s the first genetically modified animal to go to market, and it won’t be labelled any differently,” said Rachel Parent, founder of GMO labelling advocacy group Kids Right to Know.
Parent says her group wants mandatory labelling of all genetically modified foods.
“That way people can choose for themselves whether they want to eat it or not,” Parent said.
Though the protesters named one company specifically, they say Monsanto is essentially just the face of what they claim is a culture of corporate greed in the food industry.
“This is an issue that really transcends so many different factors,” said protester Patricia Krumpek. “It’s just basic democracy. People want to know what’s in their food.”

That attitude apparently also transcends borders. The group’s Facebook page highlights marches in the U.S., France, Japan and elsewhere.
