GMO food zombies will try to take over Mar Vista Farmers Market. However, these mutations of the undead are not of the usual bloodthirsty variety. They are being created by genetically modified organism foods.
Monsanto’s ‘biopesticide’ known as Bt is not only developing mutated insects and requiring excessive pesticide use, but new findings show that it is also killing human kidney cells — even in low doses. The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) reported that “Several animal studies indicate serious health risks associated with GM food,” including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulation, and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system. 19 other studies also link GMO foods to organ disruption.
The GMO zombie march is set to bring awareness to California Right to Know GMO labeling initiative Prop 37 which will appear on voter ballots for the November 6 elections. If passed, Prop. 37 would make California the first state in the U.S. to require labeling of most foods made with genetically modified organisms -- those given specific changes to their DNA through genetic engineering techniques.
On October 14th Zombies will try to take over Mar Vista Farmers Market. But the pirates of Rogue Privateers will be there to protect organic fruites and veggies and they may need all the help they can get to defeat them.
