Last weekend’s worldwide March Against Monsanto should have focused media attention on consumer concerns about GMO’s. Millions of people came out to protest the threat of GMO’S ‘to the world food supply. Unfortunately the major channels didn’t see fit to do much coverage of the story.
Rt.com is an international online and cable news station that pays attention to news stories often overlooked by mainstream media. The following video, which is a good summary of GMO activism and concerns, appeared on rt.com.
The video explains why 64 countries all over the globe have banned GMO’s in the interests of environmental health and safety. Monsanto, the corporation at the forefront of GMO research and development, is US-based and seems to be favored by FDA regulations. However there is a hopeful mood in the USA due to Vermont new regulations about GMO labeling.
Additionally there was a bill before the CA legislature last night (SB 1381) that would mandate labeling of GMO’s. The bill needed two more supporters in order to be passed, and another vote was called for earlier today. The blog on Food Democracy Now has timely info about the issues and current voting campaigns.

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.
