OK, this is going to be a bit of a quick post, but I just really wanted to highlight this awesome GMO t-shirt. Check it out:
Well there are a few reasons:
- GMOs have been linked to organ disruption in at least 13 scientific studies
- … and that’s despite massive cover-ups and threats to independent scientists researching GMOs (see video below)
- And as world-leading geneticist David Suzuki points out: “Because we aren’t certain about the effects of GMOs, we must consider one of the guiding principles in science, the precautionary principle. Under this principle, if a policy or action could harm human health or the environment, we must not proceed until we know for sure what the impact will be. And it is up to those proposing the action or policy to prove that it is not harmful.” Yes, in fact, we know very well that it might cause serious harm, making the need for the better implementation of the precautionary principle that much more important.
Good enough for you?
You can purchase the shirt above here, by the way. Threadless, the t-shirt company that chose the winning design and is selling it, is donating 25% of revenue to the non-GMO Campaign of The Institute for Responsible Technology (IRT).
Also, if you buy the shirt above, IRT is encouraging you to take a photo of yourself in it and upload it to their Facebook page.
