Dear Canada and the USA
We *will* join the other ~5 billion people in the world who know if their food contains GMOs. This includes nations that outright ban GMOs to those who require Labelling. Here is the full list by nation below. Canada and the USA are the only developed nations in the world that don’t require labelling. Powerful lobby groups are preventing us from knowing what’s in our food. This explains why despite 90% N. Americans (across all political stripes) wanting to know if it’s GMO, it has yet to happen. But it’s going to – We are going to make enough noise and demand out of this mass experiment!
70% of the world lives in countries that have protected themselves with some kind of legislation either restricting GMOs or labelling them. Given the hype, I assumed it was just Europe, Russia, China and a few others. When I examined the issue, closely for first time, I was pleased to discover not only European Countries (4 dozen) are protecting themselves, but EURASIAN Countries (18), Latin American Countries (7), African Countries (11) and Australia and New Zealand. Here are the results below. Total world population who legislate GMOs : about 5 billion.
I was pleased to discover upon closer inspection that the list has grown recently from Mexico (who has banned GMO corn), to Bhutan (first nation to go organic) to Hawaii’s Big Island as of this last week.
Aloha to Hawaii’s Big Island! May your population of 185,000 inspire 317 million Americans to do away with this failing and dangerous technology all together!
|Bosnia and Herzegovina||3,847,000|
|Isle of Man (UK)||87,000|
|Svalbard and Jan Mayen (Norway)||3,000|
|Plus Hawaii’s Big Island||185,000|
|% of the WORLD WHO HAS RIGHT TO KNOW||70%|
