Do your family and friends buy and serve organic food? Take a moment to ponder and think more about the food, health and organic standards of others around us. With summer in full swing and the July 4th holiday almost here, now is a great time to start planning your family food health and holiday plans. If you are committed to being healthy and buying and serving organic; are others doing their part to help insure you receive organic in return. Unfortunaely too many people are not up to date with the real risks or shameful safety standards of the Sick Standard American Diet (SSAD) where Genetically Engineeered (GE), Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) and glyphosate on foods are considered acceptable. Unfortunately too many people with powerful financial funding and a profit before people mentality are telling us they are Generally Regarded as Safe (GRAS) without the long term objective safety studies and tests to back it up. Common sense dictates that since GE and GMOs are artificially altered by humans they are different plants than those created by nature. There are too many unanswered questions about the long term environmental, health and safety consequences from consuming GE and GMO Frankenfoods. Caveat Emptor/Buyer Beware: If it does not say Organic or at least Non GMO chances are that it contains GE, GMOs, glyphosate and other health hazards.
Unfortunately there are too many complacent, compromised and confused people falling for the fabricated science fiction propaganda promoted by big agriculture and big biotechnology companies pushing the GE and GMO Frankenfoods agenda. If you Care choose Organic first for family and friends.
Previous blog posts have addressed the importance of avoiding all GE and GMOs in ingredients used to make Frankenfoods (anything with artificial, synthetic or unnatural ingredients). Too many people continue to buy and consume them without comprehending the serious health hazards cuase by profits before people that results in paying for poison and problems around the world. There are so many books and documentaries covering the education, information and insights regarding the dark side of the argiculture and biotechnolgy industries dedicated to GMOs that put company profits before the health of people.
Many people are allowing their long term health and quality of life to be harmed by a lack of awareness about the health hazards and risks leading to long term health consequences from consuming GMOs. Due to a hidden agenda the education and information most people are receiving covers up the harm to their health and the environment from consuming GE Frankenfoods. We cannot depend on government agencies that have become complacent, confused, conspiring and corrupt to protect us. It is up to us to help more people wake up and watch out regarding food ingredients, safety and transparency.
With a little basic education, common sense and health information we will all be able to make better food choices and decisions regarding our health. If health and wealth are high priorities it is essential we make smart decisions about which foods to avoid and which foods to buy. The goal of this blog post is to educate and inform readers about better food choices.
GE and GMOs
Frankenfoods made with GE and GMOs treated with toxic agriculture chemicals are a significant risk to our environment and health. Once you alter and change the genetic code (DNA or RNA) the Genie is out of the bottle and there is no putting it back again. Messing with Mother Nature is a recipe for disaster. GE and GMO canola, corn, cotton, soy or sugar beets are pervasive in highly processed and refined foods. Beverages, foods and products containing these unnatural Frankenfood ingredients directly and indirectly affect our environement and health. The mass quantities of chemical herbicides and pesticides is polluting our air, bodies, food, land and waters.
Growing GE crops is drastically changing and damaging our farming practices and food support systems. Chemical and heavy metal contaimination and Frankenfoods with GMOs could be responsible for billions of dollars spent on chronic illness and obesity issues. Our health is our wealth and many people are choosing unhealthy Frankenfoods without knowing it.
What we eat and grow is intricately connected to all other aspects of our environment, health and well being. Unfortunately we live in a world where big corporations, mass media and special interest groups can use confusion, deception and misinformation for their profits before people position which can rob us of our long term health and well being. Did you know many developed countries ban GMOs and require ingredient labeling to help protect their citizens? Many even ban animals that have been fed GMOs. When will the US follow their leadership role?
Remember: we are what we eat. Children should be learning the importance of buying, eating and growing a diverse array of locally produced, minimally processed, nutrient dense and organic whole foods. Unfortunately at home and in schools children are being brainwashed by advertisements, commercials and government agencies to consume Frankenfoods made with GMOs. Our body and mircobiome is made up of a complicated and elaborate matrix that affects every other cell in our body. Many companies are making big bucks by making Frankenfoods using GMO ingredients. Thanks to the power of independent information sources and the internet we are able to educate and inform ourselves with a wealth of information on holistic health and organic foods. While it can take an investment of time to read, research and review resources to become educated on healthy food choices the hard work has already been done for us. There are many resources identified in this blog post to learn the benefits of holistic health and organic foods.

Glyphosate is patented as an antibiotic, weed killer, metal solvent and more. Dr. Senef a top MIT researcher believes glyphosate is what leaches lead and other heavy metals into our water supplies like what occured in Flint, Michigan. They have identified 120 cities with high aluminum, lead, mercury, cadmium and arsenic. Glyphsate and heavy metals ionically bond to do things they cannot do seperately.
