On Saturday March 25th at 2 pm, Approximately 2500 Torontonians marched against Monsanto. The march against monsanto was a world wide event and there were millions of people attending other events globally. This peaceful protest was to raise awareness of GMO foods and the potential risks that they could bring about. As a member of Karma Co-operative, a food store in Toronto that specializes in GMO free, organic foods, I have learned alot about food politics and the importance of sustainable agriculture (and permaculture). I really recommend getting educated on these issues as it will help you to make a more informed decision when you shop.
-Research studies have shown that Monsanto’s genetically-modified foods can lead to serious health conditions such as the development of cancer tumors, infertility and birth defects.
-In the United States, the FDA, the agency tasked with ensuring food safety for the population, is steered by ex-Monsanto executives, and we feel that’s a questionable conflict of interests and explains the lack of government-led research on the long-term effects of GM products.
