Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)

How much do you know about Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO's)?
Educating yourself on this topic can greatly increase your health and even possibly save your life.
I come from America and GMO foods are widely hidden in foods as it is not mandated that labels contain GMO information. In Europe GMO's have been widely banned (corn isn't used as widely as it is in America) and if GMO ingredients are in foods, it must be stated on the food label. This is called FOOD SAFETY. Sadly, enough GMO products are making their way into foods all over the world, thanks to food giants like Monsanto, which are much more concerned with making money than protecting you or your children's health.

Some Facts:
1. Organic products cannot contain GMO's- so buy organic dairy, meat and eggs as these animals have not been fed GMO foods (especially corn). Farmed fish are now fed corn as well so buy wild fish.
2. Over 90% of Corn, Canola, Soy, and Cotton crops are GMOs. Avoid labels with high fructose corn syrup, fructose or soy lethicin. Soda's give you a huge dose of corn- bad news.
3. Just to mention a few studies: animals given GMO foods have become sterile, had liver cell dysfunction, become obese, and have also died. In one area, people living near GM plants have contracted skin, respiratory, and intestinal reactions to corn pollination as well as an increased immunity to antibiotics. This list goes on and on....

The scary part is that GMOs are in infant formula, our kid's school lunches and nearly EVERY food product on the grocery store shelf in America. THIS IS A MULTI BILLION DOLLAR BUSINESS!!

Educate yourself and protect you and your famiy's health-Read more at this site. This author has written three books and used to work in the marketing department for a GMO company. A 10 minute video and website link are included below. If you don't have time to watch a 10 minute video, please watch the last minute and a half of the video as it lists facts and dangers regarding the GMO business.
