Proposition 37 Fails to Pass in California

Well folks, unfortunately the pitch for GMO labeling didn’t get through. Prop 37 was successfully gained  47 percent of California’s votes, but big company names like Monsanto, PepsiCo, Coca-Cola, Kellogg, General Mills, DuPont, Bayer and other food and pesticide companies put forth nearly $45 million to fund the “No on Prop 37” campaign, and won. According to Natural News, this same campaign has a criminal complaint filed against it with the FBI. The campaign was linked to an alleged criminal fraud in which it used a fake FDA quote and sent out mailers fraudulently using the FDA seal. Tisk, tisk, tisk!

Be not discouraged people! The battle for GMO labeling has just begun! This fight has spread substantial awareness about GMOs both nationwide and worldwide making people question the idea of GMOs and what exactly is in their food. In due time, our rights will be acknowledged. We are more than 4 million votes closer to victory. Their secret is out and we wont stop until until GMO labeling becomes a law. Don’t give up the fight! Continue to support GMO labeling!

Monsters are killing people!

I’ve never cared for energy drinks. Sure, I’ve had a few Red Bulls, but the popular energy drink called “Monster” just looks scary to me. That creepy “M” on the black can just makes it look suspect to my well-being.The drink is a 24-ounce carbonated beverage with 240 milligrams of caffeine. That is seven times the amount that is found in a regular 12 ounce soda. Turns out the this ridiculously caffeinated drink has been linked to the death of a 14-year-old girl who died of “caffeine toxicity” after drinking two 24 oz. cans of Monster Energy drink. It has also been linked to the deaths of four other people. The deaths are all currently under investigation of the FDA

According to Livestrong.comMonster Energy drinks provide about 200 calories per 8 oz. The drink is fortified with an abundance of B vitamins, which are helpful for energy metabolism and immune system health.  can. Oh, but there’s more! On top of the mass amounts caffeine, the drink also contains 54 g of sugar. Monster Energy drinks are high in sodium: about 360 mg per can. Both sugar and sodium are related to high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease, and the American Heart Association recommends limiting both to prevent heart problems. Sounds  pretty bad!

GMOs ARE NOT A JOKE PEOPLE!

Would you spray RAID on your food and eat it? Would you take a medication that has a side effect listed as CANCER? Not likely that you would do such stupid things, but this is what it is like to eat GMOs.

Have you ever thought about why so many people are sick and dying from CANCER? Sure people have been dying of disease for since forever, but in a time of constant advancement and discovery of medicines, cures and remedies that sustain life, why is cancer spreading like wildfire? GMOs are causing cancer in humans at a rapid pace. We are literally being used as lab rats to eat the stuff when it has already been proven to be hazardous to living organisms. You may not understand the severity because this isn’t usually the topic of discussion on most news and media outlets. This is something we must take upon ourselves to get educated, protect ourselves and our future. This is information that EVERYONE should know! Don’t be a victim to GMOs!

Why So Serious?

Side effects of long-term GM food consumption include liver cancer, kidney cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, breast cancer (for men too), thyroid tumors, Parkinson’s disease, infertility, birth defects, autism and brain tumors. The dreaded diagnosis of cancer has been linked in over 260 studies worldwide to agrochemicals. This stuff is not only bad, but deadly. We need the FDA to regulate and label which foods are genetically modified. We all have a right to know what’s in our food. Help fight for GMO labeling today!

So you wana be inky? Well think again!

Let’s just keep it real. Tattoos are all the rage amongst young people. They are one of the most popular visual forms of expression and can be very attractive to some. There are kids out there just itching for the day when they’re old enough to get a tattoo. I have two tattoos myself and often fantasize about my next ink and where it will go. Tattoos are addictive that is for sure. I always knew that you have to be careful when getting tattoos because of risk for improper sanitation and sterilization. Personally, I have always gone to a professional to get mine done.

However, I just recently became aware of a nasty outbreak of hard-to-treat skin disease attributed to tattoo ink ingredients that prompted both the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to issue warnings about the associated health risks of tattoos. Apparently, some inks contain dyes “suitable for printers’ ink or automobile paint.” Black ink in particular may be trouble from the carcinogenic point-of- view. I love tattoos, but now I am definitely having second thoughts about my next ink. I’m really beginning to think they’re bad for you. Sad face!
