Say No to GMOs With the Rally for the Right to Know Sunday
Do you ever find it a little odd that the leftover ears of corn you bought for the Labor Day cookout still sit in the back of the fridge with little to no signs of aging? Sure, this may sound awesome at first, but it has got to make you wonder about the long-term effects of eating genetically modified foods, no? While GMOs can promise a longer shelf life, they've also been linked to infertility, immune problems, environmental devastation, accelerated aging, and faulty insulin regulation.
The Rally for the Right To Know will happen Sunday from noon to 3 p.m. at the Yellow Green Farmer's Market (1940 North 30th Road, Hollywood). The day will be much more than a bunch of cardboard signs and chanting. Sheldon says they will have live music, kids' activities, a puppet show by Autonomous Playhouse, organic food samples, tons of literature and guest speakers like radio show host Robert Scott Bell, Permaculture Miami's Marcus Thomson, Huffington Post Columnist Vaishali and Dr. Lynn Lafferty.
