  1. I like the message, not so sure about the medium. :0) Didn't know it was Non-GMO Month. Thanks for the link I'm going to go read about it

  2. I wasn't able to get the whole video, only in snippets, it kept cutting out.

  3. Living in the middle of farm country, I should know more about this issue, but I'm embarrassed to say I don't, Linda. I've heard a lot of the controversery, and I know that most of the elevators around here, if not all, will not accept GMO crops. I did read the other day that bees can't use these crops for food, which is a concern, too.

    I guess I should read more about this issue to thoroughly understand it.

  4. Hi MBT, I see it as clever, entertaining, funny, informative, and motivating. I can appreciate all sorts of mediums and genres for getting important messages across.

    On the other hand, not every medium appeals to everyone - whatever floats your boat, as long as the message is received. There's an informative video talk by Jeffrey Smith (Seeds of Deception author,) @ http://tinyurl.com/yh898n6 . It's long, but well worth watching.

    Hi Eileen, I'm not sure what the problem is with the video - sorry it's not working for you. If anyone else is having trouble seeing it, please let me know. If you're still curious to see it, maybe it would work better from the link in the post. The video is available there, and on YouTube @ http://tinyurl.com/25n2mjw .

  5. I know what you mean Rose. For me it all started with working with the holistic vet and researching information on pet health. You know how it goes - following links and ending up deep in something you hadn't originally planned to investigate. It's been sobering and eye-opening learning more about GMOS. I'm resolved to do whatever I can to get them out of my family's diet and spread the word about how important this issue is.

  10. Thanks for sharing this video. It's great! WholeSoy (Non-GMO soy yogurt) has put together a Take Action Guide for Non-GMO month. You can visit it here for your reference: http://wholesoyco.com/blog/item/take-action-guide-for-non-gmo-month

  11. LOL JGH! I hope the passion and the message help motivate folks to take action.

    My pleasure Stacie. Other than fermented soy like miso, I'm not at all convinced soy is a healthy food, but GMO-free soy is surely better than Frankensoy.
