GMO’s Are Not What You Want In Your Food

Here’s where I get on my soap box and my spiritual box.  I believe God created man, plants and animals.  He put in a genetic code that is never to be tapered with.  Because he is the creator. From the first sin of man consuming food that God had banned we have dealt with sickness and  disease.  God said to Adam, you are not to eat of that fruit from the Tree of Good and Evil.
Currently, the US is one of only a few countries that allows GMOs in our food. Most developed countries have banned and considered GMO to be unsafe.  When our government allowed GMO to be placed in  our foods unlabeled they did so  with the knowledge that any scientific safety studies that were done were carried out by the big corporations that created the GMO’s. A big conflict of interest.
If you are an average consumer and most of us are. We have a right to  know what is in our food.  President Obama said that he will  force companies to label foods that have GMOs.  Sadly, this has not occurred. While a 2015 ABC News survey found that 93% of Americans believe genetically modified foods should be labelled, GMOs are not required to be labelled in the U.S. and Canada. So what can we do to educate ourselves. There are many groups that are fighting against this such as__________________.Knowing what GMOs are and what foods contain them is key in preventing them. Some foods companies have changed their labeling and have made  drastic steps to reduce or ban them.  It is widely known that  corn and  soy are the most genetically modified food.  You would be surprised  to find out how many food contain corn and soy.  I do want to set the record straight. Not all corn and  all  soy is  bad.  Just the GMO corn and soy.

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.
