GMO Myths: Is Everything You Know Simply Wrong?

Learn everything you can. Then get involved promoting your position. If nothing is done then GMO’s will actually be everywhere. There is still time to do something to at least lessen the severity of the threat to our health and the health of the planet. But this will only happen if people who are informed get involved. It’s our future, and the future of our kids, that are at stake. Let’s hope we’re up to the challenge..
