SPOT THE COW
Find Primrose, our cow; sing along to GM-free songs and sign our giant pink â€˜Keep Victoria GM-free message to the Victorian Government.
MADGE research has found laboratory animals fed GM foods suffered allergies, stunted development, damage to their internal organs and died prematurely. Toys painted with toxic paint can be recalled but if these foods cause damage to developing bones, brains and bodies the effects cant be removed.
â€œWhy should we feed GM food to our families when there are no studies proving these foods safe to eat?â€ says Fran Murrell â€œGM canola has polluted all of Canadas canola leaving no choice for consumers. Dont let this happen in Australia; extend the ban on GM canola until 2013â€
*MADGE is a network of people concerned about the health and environmental effects of GM food. Many members are mothers but anyone can join and its free.
