Invitation to join

I am interested in starting up an anti genetically
engineered initiative in Somerville for 2007.
I would like to hear from those who are deeply concerned about what exactly is in their food.
This will be a nonpartisan anti corporate effort of
course. I would like an initiative where farms, restaurants, and markets all have certificates that prove they do not have gmo foods or seeds.
And cloning as well it sounds.

Additional info

Genetically engineered or genetically modified food
is the process of genetically changing the DNA in
a plant or animal species. One of the most well known methods is taking a gene gun and
inserting a gene from from one species into a completely different species. Monsanto et al
says this improves the crop yield or increases
resistance to disease.
Inserting a gene into the DNA can be dangerous
since unpredictable. The outcome can be different
depending on where the gene was inserted.
Why should people want to eat perfect bland tomatoes with a longer shelf life when you can eat homegrown delicious tomatoes. that may have less risk of cancer or causing immunities to penicillin.
