Ok, I’ve heard more news on the GMO front that I feel compelled to share. Many consumers are lulled into a false sense of security about their food supply when doing their typical grocery shopping. Others are aware of genetically modified organisms (GMO) or genetically engineered (GE) foods but don’t fully understand what that means for their own body. When Monsanto started inserting viruses and bacteria into crops it was not disclosed that the DNA inserted into GMOs can transfer to bacteria in the environment and also into our own intestines. Now, most corn and soybeans are genetically engineered and this is manufactured into the majority of our foods. There is also GE salmon, alfalfa, sugar beets and the list is growing.
Studies have shown a close association between GMOs and plant disease, infertility, miscarriages, organ damage and high infant mortality in animals. This includes farm livestock and our pets. When animals are changed to a non-GMO feed, their health improves. NOW new studies have shown how GMOs may alter organ function in humans. If this isn’t a call for growing your own garden and shopping organically, I don’t know what else would convince you.
What would it take for food companies to eliminate all GMO ingredients? I remember when Europe banned all GMO foods about ten years ago due to consumer demands. In the U.S., mainstream media is reporting more and more on GMOs and food safety. Jeffrey Smith, GMO expert, believes it would only take 5% of consumers avoiding GM brands to start the non-GMO avalanche.
Did you know they want to introduce a new GMO that can tolerate the 2, 4-D chemical – a main component of Agent Orange? Will you be part of the 5% and vote no to GMOs with your shopping habits?
Please watch and share the video below to understand the need for shopping and eating non-engineered foods.
