We are a coalition of consumers, business owners, professionals and allied groups who support everyone's right to choose food and products that have not been genetically modified. We promote grassroots efforts that encourage informed and nourishing food options and choices through education and public awareness.“GMO Free Begins with Me!”
A GMO (genetically modified organism) is the result of a laboratory process of taking genes from one species and inserting them into another in an attempt to obtain a desired trait or characteristic, hence they are also known as transgenic organisms. This process may be called either Genetic Engineering (GE) or Genetic Modification (GM); they are one and the same.

Haven't seen Genetic Roulette?
Never-Before-Seen-Evidence points to genetically engineered foods as a major contributor to rising disease rates in the US population, especially among children. Gastrointestinal disorders, allergies, inflammatory diseases, and infertility are just some of the problems implicated in humans, pets, livestock, and lab animals that eat genetically modified soybeans and corn.
What's next in the fight against GMO's?Although Prop 37 failed in California the fight continues. San Juan County in Washington State passed an initiative restriciting propagation, cultivation, raising or growing of plants, animals and other organisms that have been genetically modified and on November 15, 2012, just nine days after Prop 37 was defeated in CA, Cincinnati, Ohio passed a resolution requiring labeling of genetically engineered foods. 30 states are drafting initiatives and bills to require GMO labeling and a Coalition of States for Manadory GMO labeling has been formed comprised of Arizona, California, Connecticut, Colorado, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Virginia, and Washington. n addition, there are now federal petitions to both the FDA and Congress urging GMO labeling laws. SIGN PETITION.
We can still defeat these companies and their trojan foods!
