A Time To Speak….
January 17, 2008 at 4:19 pm

There is a time for everything says the book of Ecclesiastes.  The time to speak out is now.  I can’t remain quiet one second longer as I read that the FDA has deemed that both cloned animals and GMO ingredients are safe(?) for human consumption.  This is science.  Science can be wrong.  Science once told us the world was flat and Diethylstilbestrol (DES) was safe.  Science was wrong.

Common sense can tell us that when you alter one thing, it changes many things.  Altering genes in plants and animals may produce some desirable characteristics, but other parts of the animals and plants will be affected.  Why do we think ingesting these foods won’t affect us?

My state and U.S. representatives and senators are receiving calls and letters from me today.  First, they will hear that I don’t want cloned animal products to enter our food supply.  If they do enter our food supply, I want them to be clearly labeled.  Second,  they will hear that I do not want genetically modified crops of any kind in this country.  Any product containing a genetically modified ingredient should be labeled clearly (currently 60 – 70 % of processed foods on the shelf contain genetically modified ingredients according to this article).  And finally, organic standards should remain tough enough to prevent any chance of an organic product including genetically modified ingredients.  Please, I urge you, don’t wait, call and write.  There is hope, other countries are seeing victories because small groups of people have made loud protests.  The time to speak is now.

  1. Well, I was at a market today and saw a friend and she actually mentioned the fact that in addition to reading all the labels for ingredients (we both eat kosher) that now we would also have to try to figure out if the meat we buy was cloned or not! I WILL be calling! Thanks, Deb, for listing the talking points so I can print them out! :o ) It’s your government, get involved!!

  2. I’m just thinking….WHY are they cloning plants and animals, anyway? Is it because we don’t have the patience to wait for something to grow, or in the case of animals, the breeding season? Do they want to make a more tender asparagus? Do we really need trees that produce a dozen types of fruit off one branch? ( i guess that’s not really cloning, though) I’m just curious…what is the reasoning behind all of this? I really thought mother nature was doing a pretty good job on her own. I personally don’t want to eat anything cloned, and I don’t know how they can tell us that it won’t hurt us. Have they seen or done large scale observations of generations worth of clone eaters? Deb is right. They don’t know now what a couple of generations down the road will bring. My thoughts are that it will go the way of the acne medicines that brought us some birth defects, pesticides/herbicides that “altered” people along with it (remember agent orange?), etc. Calling my government tomorrow!
