Guayaki labels Yerba Mate bottles with "Label GMOs" message


(NaturalNews) The Guayaki company absolutely rocks. Not only is their beverage truly amazing -- it will lift your mood, brighten your day, and energize your spirit -- they've also begun labeling their bottle caps with the message, "Label GMOs" and the URL www.NonGMOproject.org

As the photos below reveal, this is a very effective way to help spread the message of the importance of food transparency and honest labeling.

Everybody wants MORE food transparency

Everybody wants to know where their food comes from and how it's grown, and the push to label GMOs, restrict their open-field experiments and ban them entirely is accelerating globally. Russia, for example, has banned GMO imports from America and has just launched a new independent study to determine the toxic effects of GMOs.

Companies like Guayaki deserve huge kudos for having the courage to put the "Label GMOs" statement right on their bottle. And here's why:

One thing that reflects poorly on the natural products industry is companies and individuals who operate just to make money while never having the balls to take a stand for what's right. You see this all the time with online retailers, manufacturers and so-called gurus who say things like, "I don't want to get involved in the politics of food."

Fortunately, there are also a great many companies that take a stand and push hard for social justice, labeling truth and honest food. Those companies include Nutiva, Natural News and of course the champion of us all, Dr. Bronner.

One Degree Organics is another shining example of food transparency, and even Barbara's has committed to moving toward a goal of 100% non-GMO ingredients. Nature's Path is also a wonderful example of an honest food company that really takes a stand for clean, non-GMO ingredients.

These companies deserve your business. I encourage all Natural News readers to help support companies that are standing for food transparency and social justice on the issue of GMOs and organics.

In fact, I would go so far as to say STOP supporting retailers and manufacturers that don't openly advocate GMO labeling and the complete avoidance of GMO-derived ingredients. This includes many vitamin and supplement companies that are still using GMO-derived maltodextrin made from GM corn. (Wise companies have already switched to things like tapioca starch.)

Why I love Guayaki's Yerba Mate

About the Guayaki product itself, this is truly an amazing, inspiring beverage. I used to think it was just another tea, but it's much more. Yerba Mate is a mood-lifting plant. It quite literally improves your mood and outlook on life. You might even call it "Mother Nature's Antidepressant."

The blends created by Guayaki are incredibly delicious. I like the Mint Terere the best. It's sweetened with organic cane sugar, and the taste is just perfect.

You can find Guayaki beverages at most health food stores and online retailers. They also sell Yerba Mate tea bags so you can make your own (and use your own sweeteners, if you wish). Those tea bags would make a great gift for friends this holiday season. Here's a link on Amazon if you want to see what I'm talking about.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
