Hi everyone! Seems as if the Genetically Modified Feed articles I have posted recently far exceed any of the hits to the training posts! I am glad, because it means you care about taking “beautiful care” of your horses on the inside as well as the outside!
I’d like to ask you to download the PDF files of a brochure on GE alfalfa, corn, sugar and soy, as it applies to your horse’s health, and distribute it to every place you can think of:
Feed Stores: bring them a handful and let them know you are not going to buy GM (GE, GMO) alfalfa when it’s harvested and baled at the end of this year.
Distribute it to: Tack stores – Horse organizations – Stables – Breeders – Local clubs – Horse shows and events – Friends – Put it out across the big wide web!
The most pressing issue for me are the 2011 sterility reports on humans. Within a single generation of eating GM foods, we are now seeing a proliferation of men with sterility problems ( http://scholar.google.ca/scholar?q=2011+sterility+and+gmo&hl=en&as_sdt=0&as_vis=1&oi=scholart http://www.google.ca/search?q=2011+sterility+and+gmo&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a). This is the beginning: don’t let it happen to your horses or animals.
A big thank you to everyone that’s taking this seriously. Yes, it will be an inconvenience getting non-GM alfalfa at the end of 2011, but we have time to turn it around with your help! So get these brochures downloaded and printed, and get them to your feed stores first – educate them if you can, but make sure they know you will not be buying this garbage, whose advantages are only for the profit of large corporations.

Caution: the files are large, so if you have trouble printing kilobytes right now, this may be a long process. To start, print the outside PDF first. Then reinsert them into your printer again and print the inside. You may have to fiddle to get it right side up! If your paper jams on the second pass, let the paper sit flat for a day and it will feed better. On the outside sheet you will notice a tiny dot near the photo of the little girl feeding the horse, and another by the two horses discussing the cons of eating GE Alfalfa. Those dots are for you to find the “fold” when you are folding these brochures. This makes it real easy for you to get your brochures looking real nice. You will notice the inside fold is shorter: I planned it that way! I have to say this or else I will get hundreds of emails wondering why this doesn’t work. I have also added photos of the brochure below.
Happy printing and folding, and I’m interested to hear your stories and comments about your GE alfalfa blitz!! And as always, you can email me at: aprilreeves at shaw dot ca
Hi, April, Thanks for the great flyer on GMOs!
Might you possibly be able to list on your website a few links on the mammal sterility evidence? The one you posted in the email with the flyer is about the sterility in the maize itself. (The most pressing issue for me are the 2011 sterility reports on humans. Within a single generation of eating GM foods, we are now seeing a proliferation of men with sterility problems ( http://scholar.google.ca/scholar?q=2011+sterility+and+gmo&hl=en&as_sdt=0&as_vis=1&oi=scholart http://www.google.ca/search?q=2011+sterility+and+gmo&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a).

Thanks for all you do, for our horses and us! :-)
The evidence this comes from is in Jeffrey Smith’s book “Genetic Roulette” page 36-37, “Over 20 farmers (at the period of the book’s printing) report that pigs fed GM corn varieties had low conception rate, false pregnancies or gave birth to bags of water. Both male and female pigs became sterile. Some farmers also report sterility among cows and bulls.” Jeffrey Smith also did research (with scientists) that showed rats and mice to have birth problems and the size of the young through 3 generations eventually became a serious issue. Aventis’s GE male-sterile corn is another issue that’s been left untested, but independent tests have shown it is toxic to human cells and causes kidney damage in rats. I’ll add another few links to pages of interest:
Hope this helps and thank you for your action on GMO and horses! Every person counts in this!
It’s one thing to list evidence: it’s quite another to show a law suit against a Big Corporate Giant (Syngenta) against withholding proof that their GM corn killed livestock. You can only win a court battle with proof.
All you horse owners: you are feeding the same product, whether it be corn, GE Alfalfa, canola and soy. They all have the same genetic modification to it: insecticides. This case packs more power than any other shred of proof as it sets a precedence for GM to be deadly to livestock, including horses.

http://infusedirectory.com Is that true? I’ll spread this info. Anyway, wonderful article
Yes it’s true and please spread it around.
i am from Russia and I can’t write english quite good, but this post is very useful.
