I & My New Book now on Facebook

FB-f-Logo__blue_100I, Melissa Diane Smith as an author, and my new book, Going Against GMOs, both are now on Facebook! Compared to many people, I am starting my Facebook pages rather late in the game. That’s because I was literally putting everything into counseling my clients and researching, writing, and producing the best new book possible.

I can guarantee that my pages won’t post as much as some Facebook pages, but I will include engaging information related to my work and the fast-growing non-GMO movement—and some information, usually timely news that’s happening quickly, that you won’t receive on my blog or newsletter.

If you like my work and are not a member of Facebook, you can still bookmark my pages and read the information. However, if you’re a Facebook member, make sure to “Like” my two pages so you can learn up-to-date info and more easily spread the word about my new book, interviews I’m doing, articles I’ve written, nutrition counseling and coaching specials, and more.

Dr. Oz Asks the American People to Oppose New 2,4-D GM Crops

Did you see the groundbreaking Dr. Oz show on GMOs and pesticides that aired on September 22, 2014? He came out the strongest against genetically modified organisms (GMOs) that he ever has, and particularly against GM foods engineered to withstand the 2,4-D and glyphosate combination developed by Dow Chemical Company.

He had guests explaining the dangerous “pesticide treadmill” we’re on—something I explain in my new book Going Against GMOs—and he said: “I’m very concerned that I’m at the beginning of a catastrophe—one we don’t have to subject ourselves to.” He also said: “America, we are running out of time…. Let’s let Washington know we mean business when it comes to GMO foods.”

Then he ended up doing something he has never done before, asking the American people to sign a Take Action petition to demand the President step in and oppose the EPA’s approval of the new 2,4-D and glyphosate herbicide combination that new crops are engineered to withstand.

GMO: Opting Out

By Melissa Diane Smith

As concern about GMOs grows nationally, three Tucson businesses have decided to stop serving some genetically modified ingredients.

(See the first printing of this article by me with photos that appeared in the September/October 2014 issue of Edible Baja Arizona magazine.)

In 2012, shortly before The Loft Cinema was scheduled to screen Genetic Roulette, a documentary about the health risks of eating foods that contain laboratory-created genetically modified organisms (GMOs), it began selling organic popcorn popped in non-genetically modified canola oil.

“We wanted to offer the healthiest possible popcorn that we could,” said Zach Breneman, the deputy director of The Loft. “I think it tastes better, too.”

My New Book Will Be Coming Soon!

All has been quiet from me for quite a while. I have been researching, interviewing sources, writing and producing my forthcoming book, Going Against GMOs. Even though I have several traditionally published books to my name, my new book is one that conventional publishers wouldn’t publish. The book covers vital information that has been kept hidden from the American and Canadian public for decades and is critical for protecting both the future of our food and our health. I felt so strongly about getting this underground information out to the public that I am publishing the book myself.

Going Against GMOs is scheduled to be completed and available for purchase before October. I will let you know exactly when, so stay tuned or sign up for my newsletter to receive an announcement.

In the meantime, visit my Going Against GMOs book page, www.goingagainstgmos.com, to learn more, and start spreading the word to others! Trust me when I say there is no other book like it on the market. Waiting for it will be worth the wait, but you won’t have to wait long. The book will be here soon!
