GMOs (Genetically modified organisms)


UPDATE

 

BAD NEWS - The government will still not step in to help protect our health by mandating labeling so we know what we are eating, and the lobbyist and large corporations are still using poisonous pest control and herbicides, as well as genetically modified organisms.

GOOD NEWS - We are slowly winning the battle because of the law of DEMAND. As more people are learning about GMOs and the dangers of gluten, they are turning to "organic" food, and the grocery stores, and some restaurants are catching up and offering more of a selection of nonGMO and gluten free foods. Although the prices are more expensive, one has to ask themselves if they would rather spend their money on healthy food, or spend it on doctors, hospitals, medicinals, and risk their health in doing so. It wasn't that many years ago that we experienced the same thing with low carb foods, but as people became educated about the dangers of carbohydrates, the stores finally caught up with DEMAND of the patron's choice.

Organic Non-GMO May Not Be What You Think

 

If deciding what to eat isn't hard enough, or what brands to use, corruption is now taking over a lot of organic, non-GMO foods. One good source to count on is Click Here!


 


These May Not Be As Good as You Would Think!

 

The link above the last video is a definitely a good source to find out about various brands that truly are rated by authenticity of ingredients. Some of the best known brands as shown below may sound and look good, but the truth is often hidden. The link above has a scorecard on various brands to buy and/or be aware of. Some of the brands we think are good have various chemicals, including Carrageenan that can be just as harmful.

Carrageenan is made from parts of various red algae or seaweeds and is used for medicine for coughs, bronchitis, tuberculosis, and intestinal problems. It is used as a binder, thickening agent, and as a stabilizer in medications, foods, and toothpaste as well as an ingredient in weight loss products.

It also can interact with other medications you may be taking for high blood pressure as it seems to decrease blood pressure, making it go too low. Medications taken by mouth can stick to medications in the stomach and intestines. Eating Carrageenan at the same time as taking medications can decrease how much medication your body absorbs, and decrease the effectiveness of your medication. To prevent this interaction, eat Carrageenan at least one hour after medications you take by mouth. It can also slow blood clotting and might increase the chances of bruising and bleeding. Some medications that slow blood clotting include aspirin, clopidogrel (Plavix), diclofenac (Voltaren, Cataflam, others), ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, others), naproxen (Anaprox, Naprosyn, others), dalteparin (Fragmin), enoxaparin (Lovenox), heparin, warfarin (Coumadin), and others. NOTE: Read and learn the facts about Carrageenan on the "Gluten & Carrageenan" page. I personally will not eat any food that has Carrageenan in it, which forced me to give up some of my favorite brands that I thought were healthy. Always check the labels on the brands shown below, as well as all products before you put them into you body.

One of the biggest topics today is the safety (or lack thereof) of our food. 60+ countries across the globe are demanding labeling, if not making GMOs (genetically modified organisms) illegal except for the United States and Canada. Human DNA is not meant to be subjected to the DNA of other species, it goes against nature.

With GMOs being in almost all of our foods today, looking at the extended list of what not to eat is enough to turn people away because there seems to be no answer to "what can we eat, and where to find it?"

The best answer is to educate yourself about how these GMO foods are causing tumors, cancer, reproductive problems, digestive problems, liver problems, mental confusion and altering the human cells, along with a list of diseases and other problems too wide to even list on this site. I don't ask that you trust me alone, but that you do your homework to find out the truth, and to demand labeling so we know what we are putting into our bodies. The old adage that "We are what we eat" is even stronger today because of the GMOs that are so prevalent in our food source, including our meats, poultry, fowl, dairy, fruits, vegetables and processed foods. The only way you can protect yourselves and your family is buying and eating 100% organic foods that are marked "non GMO" or "GMO free". Because of the people's outcry, more stores are selling organic, non GMO foods, but the demand is still greater than the shelving of healthy foods.

I am the first to admit these foods are harder to find and more expensive, but when it comes to your health and life, is it really more expensive to eat healthy or to pay for doctor, hospital, or funeral expenses?

I have added some videos below to get you started so you, as a reader of this site, can understand the importance of this subject, and what genetically modified organisms really are.

PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY. PROTECT THE WORLD AND BECOME INVOLVED. GO TO THE GMO MARCHES, VOLUNTEER TO HELP MAKE SIGNS, SEND E-MAILS TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW, AND WRITE TO EVERY AGENCY AND CORPORATION THAT IS INVOLVED, AND YOUR STATE REPRESENTATIVES AND TO WASHINGTON. THE GOVERNMENT WILL NOT PROTECT YOU SO IT IS UP TO YOU TO JOIN WITH OTHERS TO PROTECT OUR FOOD! IT IS UP TO YOU TO DEMAND, AT THE VERY LEAST, THAT LABELING MUST BE USED IN THE PACKAGING OF THESE POISONESS FOODS. WE HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW WHAT WE ARE EATING.


 


 


 


 


 


Protect Organic Food

 

Dear Friend,

Right now one of the biggest assaults on the integrity of organic foods is taking place at the USDA that has ever been conceived, with high-level Obama political appointees working behind the scenes with giant corporate organic to gut 20 years of precedent in the congressionally-mandated National Organic Standards Board (NOSB).

The NOSB meeting this week was already set to be contentious, but earlier this morning, Obama USDA officials called local San Antonio police to arrest an organic activist from leading a spirited protest of the imminent watering down of organic standards by the USDA employees and corporate organic interests.

Even worse, USDA representative Miles McEvoy has illegally taken over the meeting by appointing himself as meeting “co-chair” in an effort to erode the authority of, and control the decisions made by allegedly independent, NOSB members as spelled out in the Organic Foods Production Act (OFPA) of 1990.

At stake here is the neutering of an independent NOSB decision making process and the deliberate destruction of organic integrity by allowing synthetic ingredients to be permanently allowed in organic foods due to pressure from giant corporate organic interests.

This outrageous powergrab to destroy organics must be stopped! We need your help today. Every voice counts!
