More GMO Woes

Canadian Biotechnology Action Network

The Canadian Biotechnology Action Network has a campaign to try and stop Lantic-Rogers Sugar from using GM sugar beets in their product.

From the CBAN site:

Keep Canadian Sugar GM-Free!

Canadian company Lantic/Rogers Sugar needs to reject Monsanto’s genetically modified (GM) sugar beet and stay GM-Free. Lantic Inc. is the only Canadian sugar company that processes sugar beet and it is the last GM-Free sugar beet processing company in North America. It is deciding now if it will accept GM sugar beets for the first time - the beets will be planted in April! (www.lantic.ca)

If you think that this GMO business has gone too far, here's what you can do:

You can go here and send an email to the President of Lantic here

and you can find free printable postcards for this campaign here and here.

It is SO SCARY how much of these things are in our food! Do you know of any good web sights that have studies about biotech food? Any ones that show the outcomes of eating this kind of food?

Hi Cammie,

The CBAN site is actually a pretty good place to start. On top of that some great books to read online (for free)



The Organic Agriculture Centre of Canada has some great research:


I hope these help!
