A WORD FROM DAVE:
Free enterprise is the theory that supports supply and demand- if people demand it then the world will provide it. When people reject it, then manufacturers are discouraged from selling it- a manufacturer will not waste their time on goods that consumers will not spend money on, its that simple.
This system works when consumers are fully educated about the origin, the quality and other details relating to what they consume.
Examples could be-
Is it part of a “green” initiative?
Does it come from a country whose political policies I don’t believe in?
Does it come from a company that is responsible for an ecological disaster?
In other words- can we use our economic boycott to voice our political opinion?
In this environment, supply and demand can be forces for positive change in the world.
However, under the secretive veil and the manipulative political agenda of large scale agribusiness- our right to information, our freedom of choice and our ability to participate in political discourse have been hijacked by lawyers, political action committees, secret ballots, and back room deals.
A perfect example is the issue of Monsanto's Round-up Ready (genetically modified) Alfalfa which is being bullied through the USDA by a company thought by many (more and more each day) as less than scrupulous, to say the least.
If they are given carte blanche, it potentially may very well cause irreversible damage to the delicate genetic lineage of the father of all foods, alfalfa, under the guise of needing to create a "weed-resistant" alfalfa.*
At Purium Health Products we would like to encourage you to fight against this attempt to unnecessarily alter and "rescue" a food that is not in distress! We are not anti-science, as some pro-GMO people like to chalk it up to, we are pro-knowledge. Right now, no one entirely knows the possible long term dangers/risks of these man-made "foods" but science is showing that they do have the potential to infiltrate and therefore ruin organic crops and they do have the potential to cause many of the modern diseases now known to man- either way, we do not want to be guinea pigs for companies whose interests lie with their profit margins and not with what is good for humanity and the environment.
NOW IS THE TIME TO BE INFORMED AND ACT ACCORDINGLY!
At Purium we depend on alfalfa, it is the highest source of chlorophyll out of ALL land plants and an integral ingredient in our Organic Kamut Blend. So ultimately, if GM alfalfa can easily infiltrate organic alfalfa as has been shown, the ramifications of Monsanto's devious actions could come full circle to a family owned company determined to keep GMOs out of our supply!
Research shows that GMOs are not as sustainable as Monsanto may lead us to believe. We believe in supporting time-tested organic farming and not supporting products called 'food' in name only, products that have not be proven to be safe for us or the land we live on.
We encourage all Purium supporters to vote with your dollars every day and let your voice be heard loud and clear at times like these!

* From Food Democracy Now: "Since alfalfa is a perennial grain, it has significantly less weed competition than annual crops where Monsanto's Roundup [weedkiller] is normally used...alfalfa does not have persistent weed problems, therefore Monsanto’s and the biotech industry’s arguments for seeking approval of Roundup Ready alfalfa based on the need for weed control are completely without merit."
Last month, the USDA released its position on Monsanto’s GMO alfalfa, stating that the USDA would go ahead and allow GMO alfalfa to be planted in the U.S. despite the fact that is scientifically proven to contaminate organic alfalfa, a crop that organic dairy farmers and organic beef producers depend upon for feed. According to USDA organic standards, GMO crops are not allowed for animal feed.1
If organic and conventional alfalfa crops are allowed to be contaminated by GMO alfalfa, the organic dairy industry stands to lose more than $1.4 billion, as organic integrity is dependent upon GMO-free ingredients and feed.2
