GMO: Genetically Modified Organism and why we need to use our voting power to stop them now
“”The Biotech industry is fond of bragging about their GM crops that ‘resist pests’. This conjures up images of insects staying away from GM fields. But resisting pests is a euphemism for contains its own pesticide. When bugs take a bite of the GM plant, the toxin from the plant splits open their stomach and kills them.”
That is an exact quote from the article I have linked below. How do you feel about consuming this same toxin now, huh? The worst part about it is that we are one of the only countries that still does not require food containing GMOs to be labeled. Why? Because the company that produces them, Monsanto, make a lof of money doing so and know that if people knew these controversial crops were in their food, that they would avoid them. Not to mention, GMO crops are highly subsidized by the government and are inherently cheaper for companies to use in their food products.
The research is starting to come back on GMOs and just some of the side effects of GMO consumption are: infertility, immune dysregulation, accelerated aging, dysregulation of genes, insulin regulation, cell signaling, changes in the liver, kidney, spleen and gastrointestinal system”. Studies have actually shown that GMOs change our GENETIC MAKEUP.
Eat Organic as much as humanely possible. And avoid any of these products unless they are 100% organic: Canola*, Corn, Soy, Flax & Cotton. The non-organic crops of these are so overly produced that it is pretty much a guarantee that if non-organic, it is GMO.
*I would avoid canola all together because this oilUse Grapeseed oil in place of it. You will never know the difference.
