GMOs: We need to go way beyond labeling to keep any healthy food

(NaturalNews) Labeling GMO foods is a good idea. But on the way to getting that accomplished, what will our food supply and topsoil be like? It's likely by the time enough consumers catch on, it will be too late for a consumer boycott "tipping point" that's supposed to bring the evil giant Monsanto to it's knees.

All the labeling in the world won't stop Monsanto from creating more seeds and planting more GMO crops, which will continue to contaminate non-GMO crops, including USDA certified organic.

All the side effects of GMO crops, damages from excessive glyphosates in RoundUp and other herbicides, toxins from GMOs that contain their own insecticides, will continue to destroy the soil, kill the honey bees, and harm the livestock that feeds on soy and corn. It's already happening.

What then must we do?

Not enough food savvy consumers in fast food America and an overarching corrupt government leave us with hardly enough ammunition. So we need to enlist farmers in the war against GMOs.

More and more farmers who were locked into Monsanto's diabolical contracts are stuck with lower crop yields and over run by RoundUp resistant super-weeds adding to their rising expenses from buying Monsanto's seeds without the right to save seeds for future planting.

Livestock farmers who use GMO grains to feed their livestock are reporting die-offs and increased stillbirths that threaten their animals. (http://www.gaia-health.com)

Enough farmers have been harassed by Monsanto for bogus patent infringements of seed or pollen drift to realize Monsanto is evil, but they are intimidated and feel isolated. We should find a way to unite, fund, and coordinate legal organizations for family farms. (http://axisoflogic.com/artman/publish/Article_65278.shtml)

Non-GMO and organic farmers have discovered this fact the hard way: There can be no co-existence with GMO and non-GMO crops. Pollen and seeds have gone beyond so-called "buffer zones" to contaminate non-GMO crops.

Conventional farmers are concerned about the biotech push for rice and wheat crops. A good part of what they grow goes to distributors who sell to foreign markets that do inspect imports for GMO contamination. They reject them even if they were inadvertently contaminated from other growers' fields. (http://www.savvyvegetarian.com/articles/GE-rice-contamination.php) (http://www.nwrage.org/content/jury-awards-riceland-1368-million)

After his organic beet crop was contaminated by a nearby GMO sugar beet testing field, Chris Hardy organized others in the Rogue Valley of Jackson County, Oregon to campaign for banning GMOs in that county. (http://www.occupymonsanto360.org)

There is precedence for this. In California, Marin and Mendocino counties have already established GMO planting bans. Get the idea? Planting must be stopped, but our federal government is too corrupt for this. Perhaps county by county and state by state, enough planting bans can be established.

Other countries have had enormous victories against Monsanto: Kenya, Peru, France, Scotland, Mexico, and Brazil because farmers took a stand and their governments backed them up.

There are many farmers who don't like Monsanto here in the U.S. too. But they they feel intimidated and isolated. Consumer activists here don't reach out to them. They only care about the right to choose. Farmers? What's that? Video: (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mNPCV7MEo2s)

We need to back farmers up, organize them more to educate and unite other farmers. We should coordinate existing farm legal foundations and fund them more. We need to help them say no to GMO and Monsanto's contracts while supporting their lawsuits against Monsanto. (http://axisoflogic.com/artman/publish/Article_65278.shtml)

GMO planting must stop before we all are forced to play genetic roulette in a very real way no matter what the labels say.
