If genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are not yet on your radar screen, they need to be. Also called GE food, genetically engineered foods are linked to organ damage, gastrointestinal and immune system disorders, accelerated aging, and infertility. By mixing genes from totally unrelated species, genetic engineering unleashes a host of unpredictable side effects.
I encourage all of you to get GMO’s (GE food) out of your diet as soon as possible!
Go to http://geneticroulettemovie.com/ for a full movie done by experts on the dangers of GMOs.
Highlights from the movie are these: Most offspring of mother rats fed GM soy died within three weeks (compared to a 10 percent death rate in the non-GM soy group). After sheep grazed on GM cotton plants, about one in four died; Farmers on three continents say their livestock became sterile, sick or died, after eating GM corn varieties.
Memos made public from a lawsuit reveal that the consensus among FDA scientists in the early 1990s was that GMOs were inherently unsafe and could lead to toxins, allergens, new diseases and nutritional problems. They urged their superiors to require long-term safety studies before any GM foods were allowed on the market. A bunch of political maneuverings later, the scientists’ warnings were ignored and today the FDA does not require a single safety study on GM foods.
SO WE ARE THE HUMAN EXPERIMENT
What can you do?
- Buy organic. Organic standards do not allow the use of GM inputs.
- Look for “Non-GMO” Labels. Companies may voluntarily label products as Non-GMO. Some labels state “Non-GMO” while others spell out “Made without genetically modified ingredients.” Some
- Avoid at risk ingredients: There are four major GM crops: soy, corn, sugar from sugar beets, and vegetable oils (canola oil, cottonseed oil, soybean oil and corn oil)
- Meat, dairy products, farmed fish and eggs are usually from animals fed GM feed. To avoid them, buy “organic,” wild caught, or from “100 percent grass-fed” animals.
This is how you protect your family from being part of the experiment!
