A GMO Free Los Angeles Is An Imperative

Proving once again that money trumps truth in the pages of LA Times, there is an editorial against the proposed new ordinance to prevent growing of GMO plants in the City of Los Angeles,  Afraid of losing their advertising revenue from purveyors of genetically engineered foods offered to the public without any labeling (which they also opposed, even though the majority of Angeleno's demonstratively support labeling and strive to avoid GMO foods), the LA Times comes down opposing reason yet…See More

Some Salient Facts About GMOs: Addendum

It dawned on me this morning that I had missed one of the most important points that could have appeared in the first post on GMOs.  Often we hear supporters of GMOs saying things like "What we are doing is no different than what mankind has been doing since the beginning of agriculture."  There is no difference between GMOs and simply hybridizing that anyone has done in the past." To say this is so ludicrous it does an injustice to the word.  When proponents of GMOs say this, they will…See More

The End Of GMOs

Hi David!

Thanks for writing to me. Wondering what you mean by lag time? Is the site not loading very quickly?

About the interaction- yes, me too! Check out the new project from these game developers with who I will be partnering to grow and develop participation within seedlibraries.org- it's called Seeds: The Game. They are a group of like-minded seed-saving enthusiasts who want to reveal the potential and beauty in the idea of seed libraries.

I'm thinking a lot about how to make this website better all the time, so if you have ideas I'm always eager to hear :) You can write to me on here if you like, or directly at devonchloe@gmail.com

Some Salient Facts On GMO's; Part II, The Human Gut and GMOs

Posted on July 10, 2014 at 8:52pm 0 Comments

We established in the last post on GMOs that every single cell of a GMO plant has the GMO trait - in other words, every single cell of a GMO plant includes GMO DNA.  When an organic gardener uses Bt (Bacillus thuringiensis don't worry, I can't say it either!) to combat pests, the solution is spayed on the plant in response to insect attacks.  The water soluble solution is washed off when irrigated or rained on and is washed off before…

Some Salient Facts On GMO's; Part I, Genetics

Posted on July 10, 2014 at 8:49pm 0 Comments

GMO plants have been a part of our diet since the early 1990's and yet many consumers do not know much about them, despite efforts to pass California's label law and much hollering and shouting in the media.  One of the interesting points in the Proposition 37 (Labeling of GMOs) debate is that the NO side (in favor of NOT labeling GMOs) did not try to sell people on GMOs (like I thought they would), but only denigrated the proposition's wording, or claimed (fraudulently) that GMOs…
