Why are we all being fed by a poison exert? Does Genetically Modified mean anything to you?
One of the things that has changed is the genetic engineering of our food supply. A lot of the foods we are eating are not eating foods in their whole form any more. Scientist are taking genes from one species and forcing them into the DNA of other species- and it is not just the food industry- scientists are genetically crossing a spider and a goat- they have spider genes that they put into goats in the hope that they can milk from the goat to make bullet proof vests- whaaat? Yep!
Genetic modification is not new- Americans have been eating GMO food for 20 years now. In Australia we are hearing more about GMO foods thanks to the media- perhaps you have seen the odd “March against Monsanto” advert on Facebook? Monsanto are a company whom support GMO foods. GMO foods are herbicide (amongst other poisons) tolerant- you can spray them, drench a seed with a herbicidal poison to keep the bugs away, and the seed will not be damaged! If a bug does eat them- the seed breaks open in the stomach of the bug and kills the bug! This is Fantastic to get a full and undamaged crop of corn or whatever you may be farming, but how does this affect the average consumer whom then eats those same seeds from Genetically Modified crops?
Since the mid 90’s Doctors have also noticed the increase in gastro intestinal problems.
Genetically modified foods such as grains that have been sprayed will destroy the insects that try to eat them, those same grains are then eventually ingested by humans and are destroying our gastro intestinal system. So not only do the proteins of Gluten (found in some grains) destroy the mucous membranes of our gastro intestinal system, the poisons sprayed onto genetically modified crops also breakdown our gastro intestinal system. And this is just the beginning- with this breakdown of our gastro intestinal walls, comes the breakdown of our immune system and internal micro flora. GMO is devastating for the human species.
The increases in Asthma, eczema and allergies is all in part due, to the destruction of our gastro intestinal system. If you would like to watch a great documentary on the crippling effects that GMO foods have, is having and will continue to have on our species as humans- how GMO foods can change our genetic DNA as a species- that is, change our DNA, change the micro flora (immune system) in our gut, which will in turn alter the way we literally think and feel- change our thought processes, then i recommend you find yourself a copy of Genetic Roulette! And if you can afford it- buy Organic or even partially, if you are busting your backside trying to get by in this world as it is, and cannot afford organic, be sure to spend time in washing your produce when you bring it home.
