Whole Foods, not all it's cracked up to be
Over the years I have given whole foods probably tens of thousands of my hard earned money! No longer will I be victim to this fraud.
After 12 years of battling to stop Monsanto's genetically-engineered (GE) crops from contaminating the nation's organic farmland, the biggest retailers of "natural" and "organic" foods in the U.S., including Whole Foods Market (WFM), Organic Valley and Stonyfield Farm, have agreed to stop opposing mass commercialization of GE crops, like Monsanto's controversial Roundup Ready alfalfa. (Do you guys understand what this means????) Under current laws, Genetically-Modified Organisms (GMOs) are not subject to any pre-market safety testing or labeling. WFM is abandoning its fight with biotech companies in part because two thirds of the products they sell are not certified organic anyway, but are really conventional, chemical-intensive foods that may contain GMOs and that they market as "natural" despite this. Most consumers don't know the difference between "natural" and "certified organic" products. "Natural" products can come from crops and animals fed nutrients containing GMOs. "Certified Organic" products are GMO-free. WFM and their main distributor, United Natural Foods, maximize profits by selling products labeled "natural" at premium organic prices. Don't be bamboozled people. Shop from co-ops, local farmers or farmers markets. Better yet, let's start growing our own and be in control. Monsanto (google them please) controls 90% of the world's food supply which raises the question, WHO IS REALLY IN POWER FOR WORLD DOMINATION? control the food supply, control the world. (Start buying and storing organic seeds now!!!!!) and check back for my post on Monsanto!
