Weil Lifestyle, the company founded by heath guru Dr. Andrew Weil, cut its ties with the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) after 24,623 signatures were collected by the Organic Consumers Association (OCA) which pointed out the hypocrisy of telling customers and followers that genetically modified organisms (GMOs) should be labeled, while paying dues to the largest contributor to the campaign (NO on 522) to defeat GMO labeling in Washington State.
Dr. Weil publicly announced last week that it has ended membership with the GMA because they are not aligned with them on the GMO Labeling issue. Yeah for Dr. Weil for standing up for what he knows is right!
I’ve read several Dr. Weil books and created some fine meals with his recipes too, I knew then (2002) when I first saw him on a PBS special that his teachings and “Lifestyle” were a good thing! His recent action in support of GMO Labeling confirms again why I like him so much!
Thank you Dr. Weil!
