    I recently watched King Corn and some other documentaries on Netflix.

    I am working on eliminating every soy, corn, canola, and beet sugar food from my diet including any milk/eggs/fish/chicken/meat products from animals fed GMOs. (Vegan note: It would be lovely if we could all go vegan, but due to genetics only about 25% of the population can thrive on a 100% vegan diet. Most omnivores, however, can do well with far smaller portions of animal protein/fat - the fat being the most important component. See full online text of Nutrition and Physical Degeneration http://journeytoforever.org/farm_library/price/pricetoc.html)

    It's time to stand up America and stop this GMO scourge!

    If you can't go to a rally you can still spread the word and you can boycott all companies that use GMOs. You can write to food companies and ask them to stop using GMOs. Better yet, just grow a garden if you can and eat REAL LIVE FOOD with no label! http://journeytoforever.org/farm_library/price/pricetoc.html
