Recently, I watch the movie “Consumed” and its a story of a single mom whose son was sick. She traced her son’s sickness back to eating GMOs. They lived by a GMO plant and realized that much of the food she was feeding her son was GMOs. Her fight lead her to speaking with the president of this big GMO corporation and revealing hidden case studies of how GMOs in the lab created death and tumors in live animals.
The GMO companies are large companies with great lobbying power in Washington. Just think what other major corporation is allowed to engineer false living foods? Over government does not have our best interest in mind. The argument is that the GMO allows farmers to produce better crops and increase the yield. Yes, that may be true, but what expense? Our children’s life and health. I think not. Uneducated farmers have been duped by these big corporations telling them that you can have better crop with weeds and your oranges can now be size of watermelons and last for three months.
I love to set fresh fruit out on my table as a centerpiece. A few years ago it hit me that I always put granny smith apples out because they last long. Do you know how long those apples stayed in my centerpiece? Weeks! That’s not suppose to happen and I thought nothing of it at the time. I now know that I don’t want anything that is suppose to have living enzymes sitting around for weeks fooling me into thinking that its nutritious.
We do not have enough clinical science about the benefits nor the risks of GMO’s. We do have common sense though. Anything that has been genetically altered has never benefited man. Long term use of these harmful chemicals in our water and in our food will definitely compromise our health.
