Tucson, Ariz. – In support of Non-GMO month, the Health Ranger has released a new rap song with a music video called “Just Say No to GMO.” Written and performed by the Health Ranger, this new song takes aim at the biotech industry by exposing the dangers of genetically modified foods while promoting the Non-GMO Project Verified logo that helps consumers identify foods that are safe to eat.
The video features rap lines from Jeffrey Smith, executive director of the Institute for Responsible Technology, a non-profit educational group that teaches consumers about the dangers of genetically engineered foods. IRT also supports mandatory labeling of GMO foods.
That same page offers song lyrics, ringtones, videos, commentary and information resources where consumers can learn more about the dangers of GMO foods.
“I’m really excited to be able to sing about the dangers of GMOs and help alert people to what’s really in their foods,” Adams said. “This is an issue that touches the lives of everyone. Genetically engineered foods have invaded our food supply, and people have a right to know what that means to their health.”
Reaction to the song has been strongly positive:
“‘Just Say No to GMO’ is the Battle Hymn for our new Organic Republic. Take action against Monsanto and their mad scientists and indentured politicians.” – Ronnie Cummins, Director, Organic Consumers Association
“Mike’s Anti-GMO rap is not only great music, it’s just the kind of creative way we need to get the message out to people who may not even know they are eating dangerous genetically modified organisms every day. Great job Mike!” – Jeffrey Smith, executive director, Institute for Responsible Technology
“Mike Adams has combined his talents of honest health reporting and surprising music composition to create a song that is a modern call to action against the dangerous and imminent genetic modification of our entire food supply.” – Kevin Gianni, founder, the Renegade Health Show
