Millions against Monstanto

Millions against Monsanto

1. Monsanto

I didn’t say it would be easy. The best way to knock this big guy out is to look for GMO foods. Since there are no label laws you should look for non-GMO labels as these companies are proud and stamp it for all to see. Corn, canola, cottonseed and soybean are the biggest culprits so use caution with products containing these ingredients. Also watch your meat intake because most of these GMO products are feed to animals as feed. The best way to avoid Monsanto is to buy local, grass fed animals or avoid meat. Get to know your local farmer and you’ll know exactly what seeds are used and how the produce is maintained. If your fruits and veggies are being purchased from the farmer’s market than more likely than not that farmer is fighting to keep Monsanto out of his/her fields.
