The wonderful thing about social media is that you can get a vastly large amount of information, Easily.
I get hundreds of articles daily of not only the negative effects of GMO’s, but the corruption that is encompassing all of players producing them.
But with every wonderful thing, there is an inherent negative one.
I often forget that others eyes are not scanning my feeds. Other people do not see the reasons my family has changed our eating habits, because they simply have not ‘liked’ it yet.
This weekend an old friend and I were having some drinks at a kind of trendy bar. A young guy showed a massive amount of interest in the food topic that seems to arise wherever I go. At first I thought he was doing the typical bar-guy mating dance, but he seemed generally puzzled.
“I don’t know what GMO’s are.”
Simply stated and loudly heard, by me alone.
Ignorance is bliss until you learn something that you simply can not unlearn.
I have gone into some of my own GMO experiences in this post, My Journey into the Education of Genetically Modified Food, but that is not exactly what I am going to focus on today.
We Are Washington State, Hear Us ROAR
We have done some amazing things here in only the last decade. I am not going to give a opinion in to others peoples’ lifestyles, but the fact that people in this state simply have the choice, is so inspiring.
We have soooo much choice, but it is all deceptive. Nothing is absolute truth.
That fact that I can choose to buy a pack of cigarettes, with the notion that cancer may result, but still have that choice is both liberating and appalling.
We should have the same labeling practices with all products.
It is not a matter of control, but transparency.
A lot of talk has come up from the opposing side, which you can see in blog action on my The #GMOdairy Twitter Discussion and I am Having a Night Cap, Tonight post.
So I decided to post a bit on this because it seems if you happen to still get postal service during this wonder government shut down, LOL (just kidding), you have been flooded with stupid propaganda, because this oppositional force has massive funds to spare and ambiguity to hid.
So here is some free advertising, #Yeson522
I know you’re dying for some more information so here are some great links for you to check out and get learned.
So, vote with your ballot and your wallet and eat real food.
