A Beginners Guide To Boycotting Monsanto

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

After the worldwide March Against Monsanto last Saturday that saw over 2 million protesters in more than 52 different countries, the awareness of Monsanto’s genetically modified and pesticide laden food is at an all time high. Increasing numbers of people are looking to not only avoid Monsanto but to get healthier in the process. Here are 5 ways to do just that.

1. Support Local Organic Farmers!

The absolute best thing you can do to boycott Monsanto is to support your local organic farmers by purchasing their products or even offering to lend a helping hand. Many people are amazed to learn that they have lived next to an organic family farm for years without knowing it. Some farms may even offer you free food in exchange for help. Remember to always ask if their foods are non-GMO.

2. Buycott

The smartphone app “Buycott” allows consumers to scan food barcodes to figure out if that particular company supports many different causes including GMO labeling. This is a quick and easy way to hit Monsanto where it hurts by refusing to purchase their products or support companies who opposed labeling while getting healthier food in the process. Other campaigns allow you to support companies who share your views on several issues including civil rights and education.

3. Support Non-GMO Project Companies

“The Non-GMO Project is a non-profit organization committed to preserving and building the non-GMO food supply, educating consumers, and providing verified non-GMO choices.” Support companies who choose to voluntarily have their food tested and approved as non-GMO.

4. Drink Almond Milk!

Unless you are receiving raw milk from a local farm, milk should be avoided for several reasons. Contrary to popular belief, pasteurized milk kills almost all beneficial stomach bacteria that promotes healthy digestion. Although many companies have stopped the use of injecting cows with Monsanto’s genetically engineered bovine growth hormone (rBGH), which has been linked to many health issues including cancer, cleaner calcium rich drinks are available. Blue Diamond’s Non-Dairy Almond Breeze Unsweetened Almond Milk not only contains twice as much calcium, but Blue Diamond is also a supporter of GMO labeling and awareness.

5. Join A Food Cooperative

A Food cooperative or food co-op is a voluntary organization comprised of individuals who work together for mutual benefit, similar to what you would see with several friends sharing an apartment to decrease rent. This is not only a great way to help your local community but also a great way to decrease your food bill while getting healthier.
