another post about that GMO thingy….

People, GMO’s (genetically modified organisms) are just not good.  They are not good for you and they are not good for me….and evidently not good for the animals tested because of pre-cancerous cell growth, damaged immune systems, smaller brains, livers, and testicles, partial atrophy or increased density of the liver, odd shaped cell nuclei and other unexplained anomalies, false pregnancies and higher death rates……..but other than that…………

In March 2001, the Center for Disease Control reported that food is responsible for twice the number of illnesses in the U.S. compared to estimates just seven years earlier. This increase roughly corresponds to the period when Americans have been eating GM food.

Our kids face the greatest risk from the potential dangers of GM foods for the same reasons they face the greatest risk from other hazards like pesticides and radiation, these include:

Young, fast-developing bodies are influenced most.

Children are more susceptible to allergies. 

Children are more susceptible to problems with milk.

Children are more susceptible to nutritional problems. 

Children are in danger from antibiotic resistant disease.

You can read about 65 health risks from GMO’s HERE.

And you can find a Non-GMO Shopping Guide HERE.

And get involved!  There is a group called Non-GMO Project created for consumers that believes that EVERYONE has a right to be informed about what they are eating.

The NON GMO Project scientifically tests all of the individual ingredients that make up a product using a third party testing facility. Products that have been certified are labeled with a NON GMO Project Verified label.

In the mean time, stick to whole organic foods that you can ensure are for the most part not modified like local and/or organic fruits, vegetables, grains, and nuts. Skip the processed foods unless they are certified by the NON GMO Project.

  1. Holy schmoley, how SCARY!! I had no idea what GMOs even were, but I’ll never look at a label the same way again. You tuned me into the Dirty Dozen dealio, and that’s forever changed the way I look at fresh veggies.

    Keep up the good work and the research!!

    So Sandi do they do that to chickens too.? Coz in the Philippines our chickens are smaller than the ones here in the U.S. or is it just because we are smaller race, you know what I mean. I heard people say that they inject hormones into chickens.
    Thanks,

    • According to the Non-GMO Project, “No genetically modified fish, fowl, or livestock is yet approved for human consumption. However, plenty of foods are produced from animals raised on GM feed such as grains. To avoid products from animals fed GMOs, look for organic products, wild caught (such as wild fish or game), and 100% grass-fed animals.”

    oh I see, like I would rather eat fish that are fished directly from fresh water or the ocean, compared to the farm raised salmon. Hey I like that someone is doing this research & sharing it. 🙂
