I'm unsure of how to start off by writing this, but I thought I'd bring something up since this outfit has a food-print on it.
In my old blog I spoke of Monsanto and how horrendous their genetically modified and patented foods are for the earth. Have any of you heard of California's Prop 37 yet? I urge you to check out their website www.carighttoknow.org. If prop 37 passes, all genetically modified food will be required to come with a label. This is a HUGE deal because it effects every single living thing on this planet. Genetically modified foods (GMOs) are everywhere and Monsanto has spent millions of dollars trying to keep us in the dark about what we're eating. There was a recent study conducted where scientists fed genetically modified corn to rats and found that those rats grew giant tumors. In another study, mice began to grow hair on their tongue and most of them became infertile by the third generation. And yet another study (back in 2010) was performed on hamsters with devastating results. You probably have never heard of this because of how extremely biased the media is. The FDA also does a wonderful job of keeping you from knowing about this. If you want to see how gruesome the effects of eating GMOs are, click HERE. I must warn you, it's pretty graphic.
There is a reason why cancer, diabetes, and obesity are at an all time high right now in the U.S. Chronic illnesses and obesity have been linked to GMOs. For that reason, other countries like Russia and France have banned genetically modified foods. One would think that the United States would follow in their footsteps.
So even if you don't live in California, you need to know about this. If proposition 37 passes, other states can follow in our footsteps. This may very well be the last chance we have to label our food. Don't you want to know what you're eating? Even if you think GMOs are a wonderful thing, wouldn't you want to know if your food has been altered in some way?
This is a fashion blog, yes. But there are some things much more important than fashion. This is one of them. Just to give you guys another example, over 85% of corn is genetically modified. Do you know what that means? We're eating corn that produces its own pesticide. Sounds delicious, right? If insects will die when they eat this, what do you think it's doing to us? And avoiding corn entirely won't do any good either. Corn by-products are found in almost everything (from baby formula to juice, soda, bread, and condiments). This is exactly why I avoid all GMOs (or try to at least) and only eat organic foods.
