Author Deepak Chopra is a 21-time New York Times best-selling author, and he’s also a supporter of a GMO Free planet according to his latest video, an urgent “call to action” to save the planet in light of recent developments that threaten the ecosystem of Earth, and our lives in general.
“We cannot allow ourselves to be highjacked just by people who make a lot of money,” Chopra says, referring to companies that exploit, alter and otherwise destroy the Earth for profit.
Chopra also lauds fellow Indian and global GMO Free movement activist Vandana Shiva in the video, saying that he is in “total awe” of her. Shiva has spent countless hours speaking and raising awareness about the dangers of GMOs, especially in regards to her own country of India where hundreds of thousands of farmers have committed suicide over failed GM cotton products and the resulting economic devastation they’ve faced.
“I have great reverence for her work to restore sanity in the world and to restore balance in nature,” he says.
Chopra, who earned a spot on Time magazine’s ’20th Century Heroes and Icons’ list in 1999 and is considered to be one of the most influential authors and speakers in the world, continued, taking aim at GMO foods which have been implicated in many ecological and health-related problems.
“Today I’m asking everyone in the world to be really concerned about what’s happening to our planet and what we can do about it, this is a call to action,” he said.
Continuing about GMO foods, Chopra said, “GMO foods are becoming a predominant supply of our food, interfering with hundreds of millions of years of biological evolution on our planet.”
He also spoke about their effect on the human gut and their potential for damaging and even destroying all manner of life over time.
“GMO foods are multinational corporations claiming ownership of all of life, (but) life belongs to all of our and all of us, our children and our grandchildren.”
He reiterated his support for Shiva’s GMO Free message as well.
“It’s very important to support Vandana Shiva’s crusade to bring sanity to our planet, to restore our ecosystem and bring life to our planet,” he said.
