GMOs Need Identification Everywhere

GMOs are also used in the production of some vaccines.

Even though this web site is devoted to vaccine safety information, an issue that may have equal or unknown impacts on vaccines is nanotechnology, which affects every aspect of modern day life.

Nanotechnology may be used in vaccines that we are not aware of.  Consumers need to know, and maintain the right of informed consent, about what is in products we eat, drink, breathe, and use as medication in OTC and Rx drugs, including vaccines.  Nanotechnology is part of the genetically modified organism world of science.

The U.S. FDA has not been forthcoming with U.S. consumers insofar as it mandates that GMO foods MUST NOT be labeled and, therefore, you are deprived of your right to know and/or informed consent, like food product labels inform shoppers in the European Union.  When GMOs were labeled in the EU, GMOs disappeared from the marketplace, since consumers did not want to purchase them.

In the U.S. GMOs are being forced down consumers throats since about 85 percent of all processed foods contain them. We don’t know what harm GMOs can do to our bodies since no studies have been done on humans, as far as I’ve been able to ascertain.  We do know what has happened to some lab rats—not a pretty story.

Flack has been flying around about GMOs in the U.S. food supply for several years now but not many in Congress have yet to take a serious ‘bite’ on the issue until recently [February 8, 2012].  That’s what I want to tell you about, so that you can get grassroots support pouring into every member of Congress’s email for Senator Barbara Boxer [California] and Congressman Peter DeFazio’s [Oregon] Bicameral Congressional Letter Asking FDA to Label Genetically Engineered Foods.  You can read their letter here http://www.centerforfoodsafety.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/GE-Food-Labeling-Dear-Colleague.pdf.

I’m certain if you value vaccine safety, you probably will want to contact your members of Congress about GMO labeling. You should contact 2 Senators and 1 Member of the House from your state, asking them to sign on to the Boxer-DeFazio Letter to FDA about labeling GE or GMO food.  You may contact your respective members of Congress directly by using this web site http://www.congressmerge.com/onlinedb/index.htm.

In addition to the above Bicameral Congressional Letter, Congressman Dennis Kucinich

(D-OH) introduced the Genetically Engineered Food Right to Know Act (H.R. 3553) on December 2, 2011. Among its provisions, this measure would require companies to indicate if food products have been genetically modified on their product labels. H.R. 3533 is currently pending before the House Committee on Energy and Commerce. [energycommerce.house.gov]

Congressman Kucinich introduced a bill that could become law, whereas the Bicameral Congressional Letter acts as a recommendation or request to the FDA.  Personally, I think both need support, but the Kucinich bill H.R. 3553 needs to get co-sponsors who will work to get the bill moved through committee and voted on in House of Representatives, which if passed, then moves on to the Senate.

The committee to which H.R. 3553 has been assigned has 31 Republican members with Congressman Fred Upton of Michigan as Chairman.  The committee’s office is located at 2125 Rayburn House Office Building on Capitol Hill, Washington, DC.

Democratic members of the Energy and Commerce Committee number 23 with the Ranking Member being Henry A. Waxman of California.  The committee’s minority staff is located at 2322A Rayburn House Office Building.

Please use this link http://www.congressmerge.com/onlinedb/index.htm that will put you in contact with your members of Congress on Capitol Hill to get support for what’s needed regarding our right to know what we are eating regarding GMO labeling.  Please get support for both Representative Kucinich’s bill and the Boxer-DeFazio Bicameral Letter.

  • Catherine, this is a very important issue. Many are also unaware scientists are utilizing GMOs to produce vaccines. More information on GMO corn used to develop vaccines here:

    Yes, this is a very important issue, and we very seriously do need labeling. But of course Monsanto and their for profit minions including the FDA, do not want that because it draws attention to the issue, and they want the population to think there is nothing significant changed nor different about the seed nor the food produced. There are clearly major problems with this technology, and as to the affect on animal and human health. The amount of information showing that is overwhelmingly there. The reality of all of it is just mind bending, as to the ramifications of the damage done and that will continue to be done with this technology. Not only that but in regard to the massive amount of control of the worlds seed stocks, and and as well as to the quality of the food supplies that all of this has. Nothing will be left that is not ruined.

    VERY IMPORTANT TOPIC! Thank you, Catherine. We, the consumers, are “sitting ducks”.  It’s time to boycott the Pharma cartel and the GMO giants – It’s time to Occupy Pharma. If ever we needed a Libertarian in the White House – we need one NOW!

    Genetically-modified mosquitoes in Florida?

    Please say it’s not so! Here’s further proof, as if we ever
    needed more, that we are “canaries” in Pharma’s coal mine. The
    doctrine of Unforeseen Consequences, the Precautionary Principle, Informed
    Consent, the Articles of Helinski, and the Nuremberg Code, have been completely
    trashed by the Pharma cartel.

    California probably is the first state to take a lead stand on GMO labeling.  Please access this website 
    http://www.care2.com/causes/mandatory-gmo-labeling-could-be-on-2012-ballot-in-california.html wherein GMO could be a 2012 voting ballot issue there.  Go California, go!
    Thanks to Dr. Sherri Tenpenny for sending me the link on this.  
    Now, we have to get similar activity going in all 50 of these beautiful United States of America.
    God BLESS America and its people.

    Jeffry,
    I also understand they are playing around with GMO technology and tobacco for some vaccines.  Do you have any information on that please?

  • Catherine J Frompovich

    Lowell,
    Thank you for enhancing my article with your remarks, which I truly appreciate.  For readers who may want to know more about the GMO fiasco, may I recommend two of Jeffrey M. Smith’s books: 1) Seeds of Deception, and 2) Genetic Roulette, which you can obtain either directly from the Institute for Responsible Technology or on Amazon.com.

    May I share with everyone that in November 2010 I had the distinct pleasure of assisting Jeff Smith during his one day seminar to train consumers to become GMO activists that was held in Valley Forge, PA.  Jeff really knows his GMO science, and I can’t thank him enough for what he does to bring consciousness about its dangers to an unsuspecting world.  Sometimes science goes bonkers, and I think GMO technology is one BIG time mess up–but that’s my humble opinion.

    Patrons99,
    Thank you for enhancing my article, which I truly appreciate. I LOVE when readers share what they know, and you apparently know a bundle.  Please keep it coming.

    Catherine –

    The One-Worlders are becoming more and more agressive of late. Here’s yet another sign of their NWO agenda. Anyone who doubts that they are acting in concert is somewhat delusional. How many Americans want to live in a Country under the control of the United Nations? This nonsense will not stop unless we organize ourselves politically. For starters, we need Ron Paul in the White House. With 30,000 pilotless drones soon to be flying overhead, we might already be running out of time. Conspiracy Theory? Bullsh*t! There’s nothing theoretical about it!

    France has a ban on growing GMO (OGM here) for food use but HAS to accept GMO soya every week for its citizens. Soya that if eaten by animals makes them BLEED to death.

    Now in our

    CHOCOLATE

    BISCUITS

    BREAD

    etc.

    We have to import it or USA will FINE France BILLIONS.

    What a SICK world.

    Forced to eat Franken food because USA is no 1 and France a mere No 5.

    So its 3 thousand TONS every week pouring into Lorient Bretagne.

    Only once has someone done much about it.

    So here everyone is getting mysterious problems with heart, bowels etc etc.
