This 60-second video, produced by Boulder-based Whizzbang Studios and Compass Natural Marketing, made its debut at Natural Products Expo West, the world’s largest natural and organic products trade exhibition, at a GMO labeling seminar and press conference held on March 7, 2013.
With GMO labeling and consumer transparency a key issue at this year’s trade show, the seminar, moderated by Compass Natural Marketing Managing Director Steve Hoffman, was standing room only. Featured speakers included public health attorney Michele Simon; Ken Cook, president of Environmental Working Group; Lori Lively, Washington State I-522 campaign executive committee member and education director for Marlene’s Market and Deli; Gary Hirhberg, Chair of Stonyfield Farm and founder of Just Label It; Jessica Lundberg of Lundberg Family Farms; and David Bronner, CEO of Dr. Bronne’rs and I-522 campaign executive committee member.

Why are millions being spent to prevent GMO labeling on foods in America?
With the explosion of health conditions such as food allergies, cancer, infertility and more, and the suspected link by many concerned everyday Americans to GMOs and harsh chemicals used with our foods, you do not want to miss this interview with Zack Kaldveer from the Organic Consumers Association. Do you know who Monsanto is and what the Monsanto Protection Act is? If you are like us, we are just beginning to learn about these topics.
We are finding that it is imperative that those who care about about what they put into their bodies and/or how the growing and handling of the food we eat affects the environment get informed and involved.
Some of the specifics discussed in Part 2:
The importance of state level efforts to require labeling Exactly who is Monsanto … and the Strategy shift to have states’ rights denied The Monsanto Protection Act The Story of the “political protest” deaths of 27,000 Indian farmers Recent blow to Monsanto in the courts in India
Elizabeth Larter from the Yes on 522 joins the program to give an update on how the campaign is going in Washington State. We also feature an interview with Washington State Center Marilyn Chase from the Jusice Begins with Seeds Conference in August.
Percy Schmeiser is well known activist that has been fighting hard to educate the public about GMO’s and the issues that arise for farmers. He was the first farmer to win a law suit against Monsanto. The landmark case, which went before the Federal Court of Canada, attracted international attention because it demonstrated the power of the farmer. When it comes to our food in American, there are no laws that mandate labeling for GMO’s. Consumers assume that the manufacturers are using ingredients that are safe and will not affect their health. Unfortunately, 80% of the packaged foods in America contain Genetically Engineered ingredients that have not been proven safe and are not labeled! The Right2KnowMarch.org which was organized to raise awareness for GMO-Labeling is a historic event that kicked off on October 1st and will continue to October 16th. Marchers from across the country will be walking from New York City to the White House, demanding labeling of all Genetically Engineered Foods. This event seeks to raise national awareness and create pressure in the 2012 election cycle for politicians to take positions and enact legislation requiring Genetically Engineered foods to be labeled. In many ways this march is the beginning of a new broad-based movement for GMO labeling. Percy Schmeiser will be speaking at the event about his experience and also to educate the public about why GMO labeling matters! In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer talks to Percy Schmeiser about his advocacy about GMO’s and why there needs to be clarity with our labels.
Reading and understanding food labels helps us make healthier and wiser choices. Join us for a great conversation with "David" who spent his career working & inspectin food.
In lieu of the recent events in the state of CT, regarding HB 5117 which would have required the labeling of foods containing GMO's was downgraded ( removing a key provision requiring the labeling of all foods containing GMO's) it is clear that the battle for consumers to rightfully know whether or not food contains genetically modified ingredients is going to be intense. With biotech stocks remaining strong combined with all of the elaborate advertising promoting GMO’s as “being able to feed the rapidly growing overpopulated world” the question still remains, why won’t the biotech industry label something they are so proud of? If farmers can look forward to a lucrative and sustainable future, why are there so many law suits popping up against the biotech giants filed by farmers who won’t fall in line? Has biotech monopolized agriculture in such a way that farmers have no choice but to succumb to the rules set by these corporations with deep pockets prohibiting the possibilities for a future in organic farming? Tune in to this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, as host, June Stoyer is joined by Jeffrey Smith to discuss this battle! Smith, who has been praised as, “the best science communicator alive today” is the leading consumer advocate promoting healthier non-GMO choices. His first nonfiction book, Seeds of Deception, quickly became the world’s bestselling and #1 rated book on the subject. His second book, Genetic Roulette, demystifies the 65 health risks of GM foods with simple tables and sidebars. Jeffrey is the Executive Director of the Institute for Responsible Technology, a world leader in GMO education, and publisher of the Non-GMO Shopping Guide. Stay Tuned!

Did you ever stop to wonder why it seems that so many people are diagnosed with gluten intolerance? I cannot think of a time in recent history when so many people seem to have either been formally diagnosed or self diagnosed as being “Gluten Intolerant”. It may be that we see gluten free products all over the marketplace. It may be that many of the labels you see boast that the contents are “gluten free”. But did you ever wonder why this seems to be so rampant?
Join me, Noreen, this week when I host the Homestead Honey Hour where we will be discussing the Gluten Intolerance ~ GMO connection . Phones will be open and you can call in with comments and/or questions. You can also be sure that there will be lots of interesting conversation when this train leaves the station!
