If the average lifespan of a person is 80 years, then poor livers, brain, immune system and kidneys (among other health problems) start rearing their ugly head somewhere during the 43rd year of life, provided your diet contained just over 10% GMO foods and you began eating them in early childhood. If you do not want to eat genetically modified veggies and fruit so you can stay healthy longer, then grow your own! It is easy…from backyard gardens to container gardens and Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), you’ll be excited to eat non-GMO foods by growing your own seedlings and or support someone who does!

Say no to GMOGMO Debate in 6 Points

What’s miraculous about humanity is that we have found ways to use our knowledge to build a better world.  Yes, some inventions have proven destructive, in terms of wars, the environment and the climate, communities and our health.  But step-by-step, we have found ways to extract  more benefits from the continued progress of knowledge. More and more people can enjoy a better life, with more certainty about food and shelter, education and self-realization and an extend life span. But there is more to this debate than simply being pro-GMO or anti-GMO.  Genetic engineering has a few basic issues…

GMO BiohazardWhat is Wrong with GMOs?

Food technology has changed dramatically in recent years. Genetically engineered ingredients have now been produced by inserting genes from bacteria, viruses and even humans into plants

and animals. Scientists are finding signs of trouble with this approach, including increased pesticide use and risks to human health. Experts with the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) say that we are being included in a dangerous experiment on our food and our health – without ever being notified or asked for permission. It is no accident that there can be a correlation between these substances and undesirable health effects. Let me share some popular and valid considerations….

God AlmightyGenetically Modified Organisms…Does God Need Help?

You may already know about GMOs history, effects on the body, alternatives and even delicious recipes offering GMO alternatives.

The food industry has been really good at promoting winning nutrients and ingredients: fiber, antioxidants, omega-3s, etc.  If products contain one or more of “beneficial” ingredients, the marketing department is willing to share.  In fact, they even spend more money to change the label.

So, why aren’t food companies GMO proud? If they believe GMOs are no different then regular food — and could possibly save the world — then why not superimpose “Made with Real GMO Sweet Corn” on food packaging? Or, why not proclaim, “By purchasing this GMO-rich product you support feeding hungry people across the globe.”

I’m not exactly sure why an industry that shouts from the rooftops if their product contains even a token amount of resveratrol or vitamin D, isn’t being so boastful about GMOs. You have to be suspicious of the silence.

Chances are, it’s because the industry knows no one can really stomach the idea that their corn or soy latte may at one point have been producing a pesticide — by itself.

When people are proud they boast, when they are not proud, then they remain silent. You have to wonder why — and what — the food and biotech companies are holding back.
