(NaturalNews) It seems it is time for the US to achieve a critical public awareness about the dangers of genetically-modified (GM) foods and their presence in the food supply. But in order to ensure that this momentum continues and leads to positive change, we must all continue to push hard to educate our friends, family, and neighbors about GMOs. We must also lend our support to California's GMO labeling ballot measure. If it is passed, the measure could become the signature on the death warrant, so to speak, for "frankenfoods."

To help promote the cause, Dr. Joseph Mercola, the Institute for Responsible Technology (IRT), NaturalNews and the Organic Consumers Association (OCA) have teamed up to declare the week of October 2-8, 2011, GMO Awareness Week. The goal is to raise awareness and educate the public about the extensive scientific evidence that proves the dangers of GMOs. It is also important to simply introduce many who are still in the dark about GMOs as to what they are, and why they must, at the very least, be properly labeled.

The US food supply is riddled with GMOs, and most people are completely unaware of this

There are still no federal, state, or even local requirements that GMOs be labeled. Monsanto and the other biotechnology giants have blocked all attempted efforts at GMO labeling thus far. Many Americans simply have no idea that they even exist. This is, of course, how Monsanto and other purveyors of GMOs have gotten away with converting the vast majority of US staple crops like corn, soy, and canola to GM varieties over the years, and sneaking them into a wide array of conventional, processed foods.

Many people that are aware of GMOs are under the false impression that if "frankencrops" are being used in the food supply, then they must be safe. Such an idea is propagated by the mainstream media and by many in the mainstream scientific circles, but it has no basis in reality, of course.

And this is precisely the point of GMO Awareness Week -- to spread the truth about GMOs to as many people as possible with the hope that, eventually, we will get them properly labeled. Once labeled, millions of Americans will choose to avoid products containing GMOs, and instead choose non-GMO products. In the end, non-GMO and organic will win out because, as many public polls have already shown, the vast majority of Americans are opposed to genetic modification of food (https://www.naturalnews.com/031569_GMO_GMOs_f...).
