Great idea.  Maybe my DH would get it if I did this....

The picture is of someone sticking labels on in the grocery store...pretty sure you can get arrested for that! Lol! But I agree, awareness would be good.

Yeah, that's why I hadn't actually done it (yet). I was still considering though... I would just have to be sneaky! LOL

HAHA  I didn't catch that.  I was just thinking of labelling what my DH insists that I buy for him.

Not sure why it'd be illegal? Go for it!

I know the Ancestral Health world is HUGELY disappointed in the failed Proposal...but you can't fight Big Bucks (Monsanto).  I've heard of several people that have ordered these stickers and plan to head to their stores.  : )

I suppose it's considered 'tampering with product packaging.' At the very least, it may be considered vandalism.

It's important enough that I think it's worth the risk, though.

I'm sorry if I'm stupid but what are GMOs?

Quoting JennMcBride:

I'm sorry if I'm stupid but what are GMOs?

Genetically Modified Organisms.  Many basic foods that are being commercially grown have genetically altered DNA to make them grow faster, grow bigger, resist pests, produce more, etc....not through natural means but through laboratory interference.  Many of these items have had DNA from another species forced into their DNA strand.  Many of them contain toxins.  Many of these things are dangerous to consume, but Monsanto, the corporate giant behind all of this, will not allow those results to be released to the general public.

The most commonly consumed GMOs are grains (corn, soy, wheat), some vegetables, and some fruits.  Remember, too, that most animals meant for consumption or their products are for consumption are fed these grains.  HFCS from GMO corn is found in thousands of food products.  Thus, we humans as the end of the food chain are consuming genetically altered mutant food or things that have eaten the genetically altered mutant food, and it is true that you are what you eat.  In one study, pregnant women that consumed GMO foods passed the toxins along to their babies, who were tested after they were born and found to contain the toxins.

It's possible to avoid GMOs, but it's very difficult to know what is what if they're not labeled.
