I like to know what is in my food which is why I am so grateful for Farmer’s Markets.
Even if there are pesticides, I can ask the farmer and he tells me how he raises the crops or meat. If I’m satisfied, I purchase and eat or keep looking. That’s why I encourage all our customers to meet the farmers, ask them questions, visit their farms. Be informed so you can decide – not someone else – what you eat. Sadly, not all national food companies think the same way.
Wouldn’t it be nice to go to the grocery store and be able to look at the ingredients and see whether or not there are GMOs in the food you are about to buy. Even if you ended up purchasing the GMO food, atleast you would know. Doesn’t seem like too much to ask for. However, Monsanto and some of the other big food companies think differently. And as they did to Proposition 37 in California which would of required the labeling of GMO food, they are working to defeat bill I522 in Washington State which would require the labeling of GMOs.
