If you care even a little bit about this issue, you know that this affects you, me, our families - everyone. Whether you eat genetically modified food or not. It affects our society, our cultures, our economy, our health, soil, air and our mentality. This video should be shared amongst every platform of social media you use, shared with friends and family. This is something that is only getting worse as time goes on and only people like us can slow it down. THUMBS UP to spread the word.
