What are GMO’s?What are GMO

Genetically Modified Organisms – For this article, I will be talking about GMO’s in food products sometimes called GM foods.

“History has many records of crimes against humanity, which were also justified by dominant commercial interests and governments of the day. Despite protests from citizens, social justice for the common good was eroded in favour of private profits. Today, patenting of life forms and the genetic engineering which it stimulates, is being justified on the grounds that it will benefit society, especially the poor, by providing better and more food and medicine. But in fact, by monopolising the ‘raw’ biological materials, the development of other options is deliberately blocked. Farmers therefore, become totally dependent on the corporations for seeds.”
– Professor Wangari Mathai

If these foods (below) are not organic, they are most likely GMO (unless you live in countries where GMO’s must be labeled or is banned).

  • Soy
  • Corn
  • Canola
  • Cotton
  • Alfalfa
  • Sugarbeets

It has been estimated that over 80% of the food in US stores is GMO.

80%, how can that be?

When I first heard the crazy number of 80% I thought, “how can that many products contain Soy, Corn, Canola, Cotton, Alfalfa, and Sugarbeets?”. Then I started reading packages.GMO Foods

Here are some shocking answers to the GMO question:

  • Meat (Beef, Chicken, Pork, etc…) – Most factory farms feed their livestock Soy, Corn, and Alfalfa (GMO). Pesticides and other toxic elements of this feed is passed up the food chain to you and I.
  • Soy– GMO Soy has been added to almost every label I read, even most SPAGHETTI SAUCE!! True story (raises hand in air). I was in line at a grocery store with a friend, buying my “non GMO” sauce. There was an Italian gentleman behind me in line. I asked him if I could look at HIS spaghetti sauce. “No problem” he said, “but why”? I told him that most sauces now contain GMO Soy. “Did your Mothers recipe contain Soy?” I asked. He laughed and said in a Mothers voice “Johnny, YOU FORGOT TO ADD THE SOY!” and made a face slapping motion. He was just as surprised as I was. It just does not belong, but, take a look for yourself. GMO soy is in more than just sauces. Try finding Hummus that does not have soy. I wish I were kidding.
  • HFCS (High Fructose Corn Syrup) – This is more well known. It has steadily been replacing sugar for years. Avoid ALL corn products that are not labeled organic. For all intents and purposes, corn is now owned by Monsanto. The same company responsible for things like Agent Orange, DDT, and rBST.
  • Vegetable Oil – This is added to products from margarine to cans of tuna. If it says vegetable oil, and is not organic…CAPISH?
  • Dairy – As with meat, the animal it comes from has likely been fed GMO’s. Even worse, it may be injected with rBGH, which is genetically engineered Bovine Growth Hormone. Double GMO whammy.

What does the research say?

Although there are many, many negative tests regarding GMO’s on animals, there have been NO long term health studies on humans. The way I see it, there IS NO WAY these tests would have been avoided unless there is something to hide. There are credible reports claiming everything from significant health effects, destruction of gut flora, to fertility problems. Some even claim that this has been done on purpose to reduce the population. This makes some sense as Bill Gates is a proponent of depopulation, yet he supports sending GMO crops to around the world. Can you read between the lines here?

A few quick things to think about:

  • Has your Country gotten healthier since it went to GMO’s?
  • Is your population going up or down? In the US it is decreasing rapidly, and the fertility clinics are having a field day.

In many US StatNon-GMO Cornes, laws are being passed that DO NOT ALLOW GMO’s to be labeled GMO free. In other words, it is illegal in 15 States to know what are GMO foods, and what are not! Who would possibly pass that law? Most people do not want to consume GMO products, yet they are not allowed to know the truth. Please get involved to help stop the insanity.
