"For each of us there is some mission in life if we but find it. All have some definite thing to do, something for which they have been created; and only the doing of this thing will justify their existence here on earth. If we come into the world and occupy space and time without giving back for this privilege, we have not justified ourselves, and our lives in the end are barren." ~ Hay

We Have The Right To Know

We have the right to know.”  That sounds reasonable….doesn’t it?  Why wouldn’t we want to know something especially when it comes to our health?  Don’t you think we have the right to know the ingredients of something that we put in our mouth?  After all, what we eat makes up our cells, skin, organs, tissues…our entire body!

California recently tried to pass a proposition allowing for the labeling of GMO’s or genetically modified foods. (Prop 37)  It did not pass.  I actually find it hard to believe that voters voted against such a measure.  Monsanto and other “invested” companies in favor of GMO’s fought the initiative with millions of dollars in advertising trying to sway votes against the proposition.  It appears to have worked.   Who knows if there was any voter fraud?  How would we know? (Just saying!) 

The Right to Know Movement is growing.  Grassroot efforts are stirring in various states such as Connecticut and here in New York to get GMO’s labeled.  This past week, I met with the New York Right To Know Group in N.Y.C.  New York State does not have a ballot initiative like California and other States.  In order to get GMO’s labeled in New York, it must be done the old fashioned way…the legislative representatives have to vote.  There is GMO legislation which was drafted in 2011 which is sitting idle.  The bill will be resurrected or new legislation drafted.  I cannot give out our strategy, but if you want to help get involved in this movement, please send me an email at Christine@innerbeautyworkshops.com.  Also, please join this facebook page for updates and current information.  https://www.facebook.com/GmoFreeNewYork
