Kellogg's: Remove GMOs from your products!

We sent a box of Froot Loops to a lab for genetic testing and found the corn and soy are 100% Roundup Ready GMO. Sugar is also a Roundup Ready GMO. Roundup Ready means the GMOs are sprayed with Roundup (glyphosate), a toxic weed killer, which is absorbed by the plant. Glyphosate was also patented by Monsanto as an antibiotic in 2011. Not only is the corn in Froot Loops sprayed with Roundup, but it is a pesticide in its own right, registered with and regulated by the EPA. Every cell of the plant produces pesticides called Bt toxins. When rootworms bite into it, their stomachs rupture and they die. How disturbing is it that Kellogg’s is feeding children pesticides & antibiotics, without their parents’ knowledge or consent?

GMOs (genetically modified organisms) were released into our food supply without independent long-term studies to prove that they are safe. The FDA doesn't oversee the nature or extent of testing these GMOs undergo. Instead, they allow the chemical companies that develop GMOs and profit from their sale to determine whether they are safe. The companies that create GMOs (Monsanto, Dow, Syngenta & others) are the same companies that created DDT and Agent Orange, now banned, and which cause serious generational disease and birth defects. There are increasing numbers of independent studies showing that GMO crops and the toxic pesticides associated with GMOs can have negative multi-generational human health and environmental consequences.

Kellogg's spent $1,012,552 on media propaganda in California & Washington to defeat voter ballot initiatives that would have required the labeling of GMO foods. Kellogg's doesn't want Americans to know that their products contain pesticide producing, Roundup soaked GMOs.

America wants you to make ALL Kellogg's products GMO-free, like you do in Europe and countries that require GMOs to be labeled. We want accountability by third party verification. Kellogg's: Remove GMOs!
