Do you believe schools should serve organic beverages and food to our children? If your family and friends serve organic foods the logical conclusion is yes… because organic is better for our children’s health, learning and well-being. Take a moment to think about the beverages and foods served to children while they are at school and the importance of a nutritious meal to fuel their body and brain. With a new school year beginning, now is a great time to start planning and positioning your family and friends to promote organic meals at school for happiness, health and help with learning.
Unfortunately, too many agencies and people are in the dark or unaware of the real risks and shameful safety standards of the Sick American Diet (SAD) where Genetically engineered (GE), Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) and glyphosate Frankenfoods are allowed. Since there are powerful financial factors and factions involved, our children are being offered unhealthy beverages and foods. Common sense dictates that GE and GMOs Frankenfoods are not natural. There are too many unanswered questions and warnings about the long-term environmental, health and safety consequences from consuming GE and GMO Frankenfoods. Our children deserve non-GMO, organic and glyphosate free foods during this critical period of their development, growth, and learning.
Unfortunately, there are too many complacent, compromised and confused people falling for the fabricated science fiction propaganda promoted by Big Agriculture, Big Biotechnology and Government Agencies pushing the GE and GMO Frankenfoods agenda. When you care about children it is obvious we must choose for our schools to serve organic foods.
Previous blog posts have covered the need to avoid all GE and GMO Frankenfood (artificial, synthetic or unnatural) ingredients and foods containing glyphosate. Too many people continue to buy and consume these fake foods without comprehending the serious environmental and health hazards cause around the world. There are so many books and documentaries covering the education, information, and insights regarding the dark side of the agriculture and biotechnology industries dedicated to GMOs that put company profits before the health of people.
Could we be allowing our children’s long-term health and quality of life to be harmed by a lack of awareness about the health hazards and risks from consuming GMOs and glyphosate? Due to a hidden agenda the information most people are receiving covers up the health hazards and the environmental harm from consuming GE Frankenfoods. We can no longer depend on government agencies that have become complacent, confused and corrupt to guide and protect us. It is up to us to wake up and watch out for the school meals served to our children regarding food ingredients, safety, and transparency.
With basic education, common sense and health information, we will all be able to make better food choices and decisions for our schools. If education and health are high priorities it is essential we make smart decisions about which foods to avoid and which foods to serve. The goal of this blog post is to educate and inform readers about better food choices.
GE and GMO Frankenfoods
Frankenfoods made with GE and GMOs treated with toxic agriculture chemicals like glyphosate are a significant risk to our environment and health. Once you change the genetic code (DNA or RNA) there is no way of knowing the long-term consequences. Playing Genetic Roulette with Mother Nature is a recipe for disaster. GE and GMO Frankenfoods like canola, corn, cotton, soy or sugar beets are common ingredients in highly processed and refined foods. Beverages and fake foods containing these unnatural Frankenfood ingredients, directly and indirectly, affect our children’s development and health. The massive applications of chemical herbicides, insecticides and pesticides are polluting our world.
Growing GE crops is drastically changing and damaging our farming practices and food support systems. Chemical and heavy metal contamination and Frankenfoods with GMOs could be responsible for billions of dollars spent on chronic illness and obesity issues.
What we serve our children are connected to all other aspects of our economic 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 power and profit proposition which can rob us of our long-term health and well-being. Many developed countries ban GMOs and require clear and concise ingredient labeling to help protect their citizens? Many also ban animal products that have been fed with GMO crops. When will we follow their leadership role and protect our children?
Healthy Children Need Healthy Food
Children must be taught the importance of buying, eating and growing a diverse array of locally produced, minimally processed, nutrient dense and organic whole foods. Serving healthy nutrient dense organic whole foods at school would go a long way to do this. Unfortunately, many children are being brainwashed by advertisements, commercials, and government agencies to consume Frankenfoods made with GMOs and glyphosate. Our body and microbiome are made up of a complicated and elaborate matrix that affects every other cell in our body. Many companies are profiteering by making Frankenfoods with 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 organic foods and ingredients.
Safe School Suggestions
- Avoid GE and GMO Frankenfoods. Stop serving fake foods with GE canola, corn, cotton, soy, and sugar beet.
- Avoid GMO High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) and GMO sugar beets.
- Avoid highly processed and refined fats and oils (canola, corn, cottonseed, peanut, safflower, soy, and sunflower).
- Support our local organic farmers.
- Serve organic foods. Environmental Working Group identifies foods with the most herbicides, insecticides, and pesticides.
- Teach children to be part of the solution and not part of the problem. Teach organic, regenerative and sustainable agriculture.
- Every tax penny we pay must be invested/spent on healthy food for our children.
- Remember: we are what we eat… choose wisely.
Glyphosate is patented as an antibiotic, herbicide, metal solvent, weed killer and more. Dr. Stephanie Seneff a top MIT researcher believes glyphosate is what leaches lead and other heavy metals into our water supplies such as Flint, Michigan. Scientists have identified 120 cities with high aluminum, lead, mercury, cadmium, and arsenic contamination. Glyphosate and heavy metals ionically bond to do even more harmful things that they do independently.
