The format of this article is very different from how I usually write. However, I think it will become something consumers will save, if not forward to family and friends. It seems as if we are reaching a “tipping point” regarding the non-acceptance of GMOs, since close to 90 percent of consumers, the food-buying and eating public, wants GMO labeling. The information below will help you understand why GMO labeling is vitally important to truth in advertising, informed consent, free choice, and your health. Please consider this a Christmas gift to you, my readers. Merry Christmas!

Furthermore, when you purchase food, please go out of your way to tell store managers, buyers and grocery department personnel that you want more non-GMO and organically-grown food to purchase, or you will have to take your buying power elsewhere to stores that sell organically-grown foods.
Let’s make 2016 the “financially-responsible-year” that GMOs become unprofitable for their producers.
