I’m thoroughly disgusted after reading this update from the Organic Consumers Association.
Dr. Weil is based right here in Arizona (Tucson) and is known as a leading healthy living advocate.
From his web site where he flogs vitamins—full of GMOs! : “At present Dr. Weil is Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona, where he also holds the Lovell-Jones Endowed Chair in Integrative Rheumatology and is Clinical Professor of Medicine and Professor of Public Health.”
It appears that on top of all that he is a traitor. I have a 2-disc lifestyle CD of his as well as a book. I just binned it all and you can bet I’m going to sign this petition! He should be strung up in a tree in the 108 degree sun for a few days and peed on.
You can sign the petition at the bottom of this post if you feel so guided.
Health Guru? Or Undercover GMO Labeling Opponent?
It’s a medical mystery.
Healthy lifestyle guru Dr. Andrew Weil says genetically modified organisms (GMOs) cause “ranges of health problems” in animals. He favors GMO labeling laws, he says, because consumers should have the right to know if products contain GMOs.
Yet the good doctor’s company, Weil Lifestyle LLC, is a member of the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) – the top donor so far to the campaign to defeat a GMO labeling initiative in Washington State, and a major contributor ($2 million) to the campaign that last year defeated Proposition 37, a similar GMO labeling initiative in California.
Not only that, but Weil Lifestyle knowingly sells supplements that contain GMOs. Unlabeled. If you think Dr. Weil should start practicing what he preaches, and if you’d like to see him make a “healthy” contribution to the GMO labeling campaign in Washington State, take action today!
