How Monsanto Impacts You and Lyme Symptoms

Posted March 30, 2013.  So important for those with Lyme symptoms and Lyme disease to NOT consume GMO foods!  Give your body a chance to heal!  GMO foods can create micro tears in your intestines.  From my friend Caroline:

GMO lyme disease

GMO and lyme disease

As most of you already know, it is with great heavy heart that I regret to inform you that our President signed H.R. 933, which contained the Monsanto Protection Act into law.

The passage of the Monsanto Protection Act is another sign of how out of touch Congress and the White House are with the sentiment of the America public. The insertion of the biotech rider in a backroom deal with corporate lobbyists and Senate leaders is a new low. Since losing a court case in 2010 to Center for Food Safety for the unlawful planting of GMO sugar beets, Monsanto and other biotech companies have been desperate to find a way around court mandated environmental impact statements required as a result of a U.S. district court’s ruling.

There is a fierce urgency in the fight over the Monsanto Protection Act for family farmers and food activists across the country as 13 new genetically engineered crops await approval at the USDA and AquaBounty’s GMO salmon could be approved in the FDA next month. The passage of this rider in an unrelated budget spending bill could open the floodgates for these new approvals, even if the budget agreement only last for the next six months

Do you feel that there needs to be a paradigm shift?
The purpose of me sharing the following information (it isn’t news to many of you) isn’t to depress you. Awakening happens when one is informed. And real change won’t happen if there is no awakening.

Thanks for sharing this interview Stacey.

Now more than ever, we as consumers MUST act collectively. We obviously cannot count on our representatives to listen to us even if we are many and loud.
  • EVERY TIME you go to a restaurant, a grocery store, take the time to talk to a different staff member at those places to share your concern about eating Genetically Engineered foods. Be like Coca Cola. Don’t stop with one powerful advertisement. Do the drip system of “advertising”.  Just because you said it one time to a manager of a grocery store, doesn’t mean that should  suffice. Mention it to the checker at the grocery store. Mention it to another checker the next time. Pay the manager a compliment and share your concern . Comment on your effort of eating consciously. Just one person speaking with different staff members at different times will seem like comments coming from different people
  • Boycott These Brands  these companies do not support your right to know if you’re eating genetically engineered foods!
 Monsanto Protection Act language, Now Officially U.S. Law!

Sec. 735. In the event that a determination of non-regulated status made pursuant to section 411 of the Plant Protection Act is or has been invalidated or vacated, the Secretary of Agriculture shall, notwithstanding any other provision of law, upon request by a farmer, grower, farm operator, or producer, immediately grant temporary permit(s) or temporary deregulation in part, subject to necessary and appropriate conditions consistent with section 411(a) or 412(c) of the Plant Protection Act, which interim conditions shall authorize the movement, introduction, continued cultivation, commercialization and other specifically enumerated activities and requirements, including measures designed to mitigate or minimize potential adverse environmental effects, if any, relevant to the Secretary’s evaluation of the petition for non-regulated status, while ensuring that growers or other users are able to move, plant, cultivate, introduce into commerce and carry out other authorized activities in a timely manner: Provided, That all such conditions shall be applicable only for the interim period necessary for the Secretary to complete any required analyses or consultations related to the petition for non-regulated status: Provided further, That nothing in this section shall be construed as limiting the Secretary’s authority under section 411, 412 and 414 of the Plant Protection Act.

3. “H.R. 933: Department of Defense, Military Construction and Veterans Affairs, and Full-Year … (Concurring in the Senate Amendment)”, which contains Section 735, the Monsanto Protection Act passes Congress 318-109.
