In case you missed it on Friday night, Gary Hirshberg, Co-Founder and Chairman of Stonyfield, was on HBO’s The Bill Maher Show talking about Proposition 37 and GMO-labeling.

He gives an excellent recap of exactly what is happening in California, how the opposition is fighting back with tons of false propaganda, and the chaos that GMOs have created with the tremendous proliferation of superweeds in the U.S.

You’ll love how Bill Maher refers to Monsanto. He doesn’t mince any words at all. Read more »

My Take on the Organic Spies Video About Whole Foods

My Take on the Organic Spies Video About Whole Foods

I know that this reaction is coming very late but for the last two weeks, I had been working around the clock planning our GMO-labeling fundraiser in NYC and did not have time to watch the video.

I know that this reaction is coming very late but for the last two weeks, I had been working around the clock planning our GMO-labeling fundraiser in NYC and did not have time to watch the video.

With people constantly asking for my opinion on the Whole Foods/GMO controversy and with the event finally over, I saw the Organic Spies video in its entirety last night and here is my reaction.

The fact that Whole Foods sells GMOs is nothing new to me. In the past, I have had very specific conversations with the people in PR at Whole Foods about this issue, and they told me point blank “Yes, we sell products that have GMOs in them.”

As the Organic Spies video showed, however, not all employees realize this and many of them are giving out incorrect information about whether Whole Foods sells GMOs or not.

This is unacceptable. Employees cannot be giving out the wrong information, especially when it comes to GMOs. Read more »

Whole Foods Co-CEO Walter Robb Says Organic Food "Worth the Cost", Stanford Study Flawed

Since the Stanford study came out a week ago, the organic industry has been under constant attack.

The Stanford Report on Organic Food and Undisclosed Ties to Big Ag / GMO Advocates

The Stanford Report on Organic Food and Undisclosed Ties to Big Ag / GMO Advocates

Stanford’s report on organic food, which interpreted data in a very questionable manner and did not adequately take into account the harm that pesticide exposure causes to young children and fetuses, created the perception that people don’t need to buy organic – something that couldn’t be more untrue. As I suspected from the beginning, this whole […]

Stanford’s report on organic food, which interpreted data in a very questionable manner and did not adequately take into account the harm that pesticide exposure causes to young children and fetuses, created the perception that people don’t need to buy organic – something that couldn’t be more untrue.

As I suspected from the beginning, this whole study was a big effort to undermine the credibility of organic with the all-important California ballot initiative to label GMOs, Proposition 37, right around the corner.

And despite the fact that the authors claimed that no outside funding was received to complete this study, in an attempt to create an aura of impartiality, there do appear to be serious conflicts of interest which had not been fully disclosed. Read more »

As I have been writing about lately, Proposition 37, the ballot initiative in California that would require the mandatory labeling of GMOs, will be voted on in November and is the most important event in the industry since the USDA approved the National Organic Program more than a decade ago.

Up until this point, however, Whole Foods has been very silent on this issue since the company generally stays out of food politics.

But just minutes ago I got an email from my contact at Whole Foods that blew me away.

Whole Foods has now come out and endorsed Proposition 37! Why? Read more »
