Genetically Engineered Food (GMO)

› Genetically Engineered Food (GMO)

Monsanto started as a chemical company that brought the world poisons like Agent Orange and Roundup. Now they are better known for their domination of Genetically Modified Agriculture, owning nearly 90% of staple GMO crops such as corn (which is seen in nearly all food as high fructose corn syrup), soy, and cotton. Independent studies show that GMO “frankenfood” has been linked to organ failure, and a recent Russian study has concluded near-total sterility in GMO-soy-fed hamsters by the third generation. Despite these and many other legitimate health concerns, it is unlikely that the Monsanto-controlled FDA will curb the growth of GMO foods, while the USDA’s biotechnology risk assessment research arm has $3 million at its disposal. Of course the industry-funded studies show that the effects of GMO on human health are “negligible.”

This makes you want to question if they are really telling the truth, or just persuaded by large sums of money to “slightly modify” the truth.

How to Avoid Genetically Modified Foods:

1.       Buy food labeled 100% organic (“free-range,” “natural,” or “cage-free” does not necessarily mean GE-free for eggs.)

2.       Seek products that are specifically labeled as non-GM or GMO-free.

3.       Do not consider a product 100% organic if it is only USDA Organic Certified.

4.       Fruit and Vegetable label numbers should be 5-digits long and begin with the number 9,     meaning it’s organic.

5.       Purchase beef that is 100% grass-fed.

6.       Shop locally.

7.       Buy whole foods that you can cook and prepare yourself… in other words, stay away from any processed foods.

8.       Grow your own food.
