Saturday, May 24th marks a worldwide focus on activism against GMO’s, with the March Against Monsanto taking place in 350 cities. Every major city in the United States will be participating in this public expression of activism, along with others on six continents.
The jeopardy that GMO’s place on our food supply is recognized globally. The state of Vermont is the first state in the Union to require GMO labeling. It appears that Vermont citizens may still have an uphill battle as a barrage of appeals and lawsuits follow as an aftermath.
Activism as expressed by these annual marches has captured people’s interest now that the food supply is threatened everywhere by both irresponsible science and profiteering. Add to that the total disregard of everyone’s right to know what they are eating by preventing accurate GMO labeling, and activism is seeing a new renaissance, particularly by concerned mothers.
Following is an infographic published on a nurses’ teaching site:

According to the above source, Monsanto is planting GMO crops on an area of land that is approximately the size of the state of Alaska. Based on studies paid for by the GMO manufacturers themselves, the FDA has ruled that GMO crops are not significantly different than other food crops. However GMO’s are actually a hybrid mix of different DNA’s from plant, animal, bacterial and viral strains. 87% of consumers want to see GMO’s labeled. No wonder, because 80% of processed food sold in the United States contains genetically engineered foods.
Even though media coverage of Saturday’s March is likely to be sparse, through this global activism the guardians of public health may somehow get the message that what is going on is simply wrong.
Carey O’Rielly DDS has been a practicing dentist for 35 years. He went to USC Dental School and Duke University for his undergraduate degree. He grew up in Laguna Beach and now lives in La Costa with his wife Victoria, who runs his office.
He began his career by owning and operating a network of six offices in the San Francisco Bay Area. Presently he owns a private holistic practice in North County San Diego’s Encinitas.
Dr. O started looking for solutions to his health challenges that resulted from the stress and environmental toxicity that built up over a ten year period running his dental network. He has dedicated himself to learning about oral systemic problems and how dentistry can affect your health. He has applied what he has learned over the last twenty years to ensure he, his staff and his patients are protected from the chemicals and toxic materials found in most dental offices. He has produced an environmentally friendly office that is also peaceful and calm.
He is an expert on dental materials having looked at hundreds of biocompatibility lab tests over the years. He has identified the most bio-friendly materials to use in his practice and which dental materials can be used to replace metal fillings and crowns, including BPA free and fluoride free ‘white’ fillings. He also uses metal-free Zirconia or ceramic implants and PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) grafting materials which come from the patient’s own blood.
Dr. O’Rielly teaches C.E. courses on the systemic effects of gum disease. He is an expert in using phase contrast microscopy for analyzing dental infections, where he shows patients what kind of microbes, i.e. bacteria, amoeba, and yeasts like candida are populating the mouth and affecting the body as a whole.
He has an educational blog and is writing a book on dental health called ‘Hidden Dental Infections: Healing Root Canals and Infected Teeth with the Erbium Laser’ where he discusses dental nutrition, toxic dental materials and the effects of old root canals on inflammation and overall health.
