I love this video because it is a message that, to me, reinforces my belief that you and I WILL change this system that is KILLING hundreds of thousands of innocent victims every year.

What Are GMOs?

From April 19th through April 25th we launch GMO Awareness Week. We set aside an entire week dedicated to providing you with information on GMOs and labeling initiatives.

GMOs are a product of genetic engineering, meaning their genetic makeup has been altered to induce a variety of “unique” traits to crops, such as making them drought-resistant or giving them “more nutrients.” GMO proponents claim that genetic engineering is “safe and beneficial,” and that it advances the agricultural industry. They also say that GMOs help ensure the global food supply and sustainability. But is there any truth to these claims? I believe not. For years, I've stated the belief that GMOs pose one of the greatest threats to life on the planet. Genetic engineering is NOT the safe and beneficial technology that it is touted to be.

Help Support GMO Labeling

The Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA)—Monsanto’s Evil Twin—is pulling out all the stops to keep you in the dark about what’s in your food. For nearly two decades, Monsanto and corporate agribusiness have exercised near-dictatorial control over American agriculture. For example, Monsanto has made many claims that glyphosate in Roundup is harmless to animals and humans. However, recently the World Health Organization (WHO) had their research team test glyphosate and have labeled it a probable carcinogen.

Public opinion around the biotech industry's contamination of our food supply and destruction of our environment has reached the tipping point. We're fighting back. That's why I was the first to push for GMO labeling. I donated a significant sum to the first ballot initiative in California in 2012, which inspired others to donate to the campaign as well. We technically "lost the vote, but we are winning the war, as these labeling initiatives have raised a considerable amount of public awareness.

The insanity has gone far enough, which is why I encourage you to boycott every single product owned by members of the GMA, including natural and organic brands. More than 80 percent of our support comes from individual consumers like you, who understand that real change comes from the grassroots.

Thankfully, we have organizations like the Organic Consumers Association (OCA) to fight back against these junk food manufacturers, pesticide producers, and corporate giants.

Together, Let's Help OCA Get The Funding They Deserve

Let’s Help OCA get the funding it deserves. I have found very few organizations who are as effective and efficient as OCA. It’s a public interest organization dedicated to promoting health justice and sustainability. A central focus of the OCA is building a healthy, equitable, and sustainable system of food production and consumption. That's why I'm proud to announce I will be matching donations up to $250,000 this week.

Please make a donation to help OCA fight for GMO labeling.

Dr. Mercola's Comments:

When I saw that baby water buffalo being dragged into the river, first by the lions, and then being attacked by the crocodiles, it was an amazing metaphor for me because I instantly recognized those forces to be the equivalent of the drug and food industry that is assaulting innocent consumers for their own good. 

But why did this video bring me to tears? 

Because the herd came back to rescue the innocent baby. Individually, any one of those buffalos would have been killed by the lions, but when they collectively massed together they could defeat them.

The message that has become increasingly clearer to me is that what is needed to change this system is someone to serve as a facilitator, herding the masses together, so we can defeat the forces that are killing us

I have committed the next phase of my life to this process, and actually started transitioning into this role earlier this year. 

This is a massive challenge. We’re up against multi-national drug corporations with a $25 BILLION dollar annual marketing budget with which to implement their agenda -- to take your money, and keep you in the dark about the truth about how to stay healthy.

You need to understand that the current health care system is designed to create fear. The illusion that is being created is that it is being done for public safety, and the enforcement mechanism is a government-backed police force. Tragically, many legitimate objections to violations of your health freedoms are overpowered in the name of national security.

Over 80% of the people on the Internet search for health information, but unfortunately, the field is loaded with fraud and deception.

I started this website ten years ago, and now it’s grown to be the most visited natural health site in the world. We have 1.2 million subscribers, but we really need 35 million subscribers to make this system shift.  I believe that is the “tipping point” that will have enough people who are conscious of the truth, that it will permeate the rest of the culture.

We are making headway as we recently doubled our subscriber rate. We now get over 5,000 new subscribers every day. That shows me there’s a thirst for this kind of truth.

But we have a long way to go, so please continue to be a voice of light and health-truth with your family and friends. Lead by example.

If they don’t listen to you, that’s OK. Be patient and love them anyway. If they are following the conventional model, they WILL get sick and when they do, that is the time to gently remind them there are other ways.

It is amazing how people can change their mind once they have been diagnosed with cancer, or have had a heart attack.

ALWAYS REMEMBER: 

There is no doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can catalyze a paradigm shift that changes the world!
