Becoming GMO Free

A recent New York Times poll found that 93% of Americans favor labeling of GMO foods.
"Three-quarters of Americans expressed concern about genetically modified organisms in their food, with most of them worried about the effects on people’s health." 
- New York Times

Good food is medicine. Frankenfoods are poison, and should be labeled as such.

The pushers of GMO's are unleashing science fiction monstrosities that threaten to overthrow the farm and village alike. It is time to get out the torches and pitch forks, gather publicly and make our demand -

"We want food! REAL food!"

And we want fake food to carry warning labels.

Most villagers agree that food producers should tell us if there are genetically modified products in what they are trying to sell us. But the mad scientists don't want to reveal the monster they are creating and unleashing upon a reluctant world.


Corporations to Avoid

The following are some of the larger corporations that are actively fighting against GMO labelling. They don't really want you to know the truth about what you are eating when you consume their products.

It is estimated that 75-80% of processed food in Canada contains GMOs.

Becoming GMO Free



  • Eat as much organic as you can. Certified organic products do not contain GMOs.
  • Support organic foods from small producers vs. organic brands owned by major food corporations who oppose GMO labelling.
  • Look for producers that openly oppose GMOs in their package labels and websites.
  • Buying organic foods from local farms and markets means a healthier environment and community.
  • Grow your own food as much as possible.
  • Stay away from fast food, packaged and processed foods - many contain GMO ingredients, although they are not listed on labels or in information.
  • Cook your own dishes using whole food ingredients.


  • Everyone that eats deserves to know what they are putting in their system. Demand improved food labelling so informed decision making is possible.

    Food should be medicine, not poison.
