A vitamin-enhanced super-banana, to be tested on Americans will take place in the US over a six-week period. Researchers aim to start growing the fruit in Uganda by 2020.
We do not know exactly when these bananas will be sold to the (unsuspecting) public, so it could be today or next week. AND we do not know which brand of banana will be genetically modified (GMO). We are not allowed access to such information. The Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA), along with the biotech companies are suing to make sure we don’t know what foods are GMO. The GMA and biotech says you don’t have a right to know what you are eating or feeding your children.
I strongly recommend you BOYCOTT ALL CONVENTIONAL BANANAS and only buy organic bananas starting today. We need to continue to send a strong message to these corporations, that we will not buy their unlabeled GMO foods. Let all those conventional bananas rot in the grocery stores’ produce department.
I guarantee you store managers won’t be happy about that. They will stop buying them and buy more organic foods. Let’s be honest, grocers don’t care what they sell to the public either (GMO, NON GMO, organic), BUT they do care about their bottom line. If they can’t sell conventional bananas because customers stopped buying them, store managers will stop buying conventional and stock up on organic. Stores are in the business of selling and if something doesn’t sell, they stop buying. It’s called “supply and demand.”
I am not a lab rat and neither is my family. Are you? The biotech companies believe we are and have no problem testing their unlabeled GMOs on us, without our consent, and our government has no problem allowing them.
BOYCOTT ALL CONVENTIONAL BANANAS! And be sure to tell your produce manager why you are.
In case you didn’t know, corn, papaya, Rose’ pineapple (Del Monte), yellow squash and zucchini are all genetically modified and are unlabeled.
