Say no to GM foods......













How do you feel about genetically modified food? GM foods were first put on the market in the early 1990s. I am against it and have been for many years. With my first shopping guide from Greenpeace in hand, around the supermarket i shopped looking for brands without genetic modification, it took a while at first to familiarize myself with alternative brands, but now i am confident in my purchases. Simple things like changing from Fountain tomato sauce to Rosella tomato sauce due to the genetic modification of the tomato. As of 2008 The Australian government is allowing these farming methods. Please visit Greenpeace Australia for more information about genetic modification of Aussie food and our farming methods. Click the link below to read more today.
This link will download a true food guide for shopping at your supermarket.

It's sad we haven't learnt from previous and still current disastrous farming methods. A new film coming out will open eyes to how and what we eat. Like any good documentary, Food Inc. has stirred up its fair share of controversy. The film examines the industrial production of meat, calling it inhumane, and looks at the industrial production of grains and vegetables - labeling these common mass production practices as economically and environmentally unsustainable. I mean we have been farming animals badly forever and now we are going to farm fruit and vegetables equally as bad. I'm a vegetarian due to grouse farming methods please don't ruin the veggies too there won't be anything left to eat!!!!
