Here is a  new website I’ve heard about that is being built. www.karmicorganics.com  They will have high quality organic herbal supplements and other organic products.  They have also just started a blog at blog.karmicorganics.com. They are working diligently to open and write new blog posts, they ask for your patience.  Anyway check them out and order something when they open up. 🙂 They would like to spread  hope and good karma in a bottle to all.

Organic consumers and producers in the U.S. are facing betrayal. A self-appointed group of “Organic Elites”, including Whole Foods Market, Organic Valley, and Stonyfield Farm, are surrendering to Monsanto.

Top executives from all of these companies have publicly stated that they no longer oppose the mass commercialization of genetically modified (GM) crops. Whole Foods sent a misleading e-mail to its customers last week in which they gave the green light to USDA bureaucrats to approve the “conditional deregulation” of Monsanto’s genetically engineered, herbicide-resistant alfalfa.

According to the Organic Consumers Association:

“The main reason … why Whole Foods is pleading for coexistence with Monsanto, Dow, Bayer, Syngenta, BASF and the rest of the biotech bullies, is that they desperately want the controversy surrounding genetically engineered foods and crops to go away. Why? Because they know, just as we do, that two-thirds of [Whole Food’s] $9 billion annual sales is derived from so-called ‘natural’ processed foods and animal products that are contaminated with GMOs.”

The Organic Consumers Association is also helping people who want to organize or coordinate Millions Against Monsanto and Factory Farms Truth-in-Labeling campaigns in their local community, through this web site: http://organicconsumers.org/oca-volunteer/
