Why You Should Refuse to Buy Girl Scout and Girl Guide Cookies Made with GMO Ingredients
Girl Scout and Girl Guide cookies are made with GMO ingredients despite the many studies showing rats fed GMO ingredients develop horrific tumors and health issues, including obesity and gastrointestinal issues. Today’s Girl Scout and Girl Guide cookies are filled with health-destroying ingredients like genetically-modified (GM) beet sugar, high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS), and transgenic soy derivatives.
One courageous US Girl Scout decided enough is enough. Her petition, seen at www.change.org, demands that the Girl Scouts stop this practice – already the petition has gone viral. As parents world-wide make efforts to avoid feeding their children GMOs and toxic foods, it is abundantly clear that the Girl Scouts and Girl Guide administrations are falling well behind the level of diligence that should be expected.
It should be easy to switch to non-GMO, non-toxic ingredients in their cookies, right? But not so, because Girl Scouts administrators have decided that the opinions of their bakers, who claim their cookies are safe, trump independent research studies showing massive health issues directly linked to GMO sugar beets and HFCS.
According to NaturalNews.com, as well as adding your name to the petition at www.change.org “You can also contact the Girl Scouts directly and ask the organization to reformulate its cookies without GMOs and toxic ingredients like HFCS, hydrogenated oils, and processed soy: http://www.girlscouts.org/contact/email.asp This goes for Girl Scouts Canada.
Four additional ways to help the Girl Scouts and Girl Guides of Canada develope a healthier agenda:
(a) Avoid buying Girl Guide cookies and Girl Scout cookies altogether, thus helping reduce the exposure the children have to GMOs. You can explain to the children, in an age-appropriate way, why you are not buying the cookies.
(b) Support the Girl Scouts and Girl Guides in other ways such as purchasing magazine subscriptions through their Magazine Program
(c) Offer a donation directly to the Girl Scouts and Girl Guides without purchasing their cookies: Scouts Canada: 613-224-5134 Girl Guides: 416-487-5281
(d) Speak up to stop the unethical use of children to advance Monsanto and Big Biz agendas that have been proven to create catastrophic illnesses!
Together we can all make Scouting and Guiding activities safe. Girl Scout Cookies and Girl Guide Cookies must be safe and healthy!
