Did you know that 75% of the packaged foods we consume contain Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)?

I read an article the other day that was so enlighten that I could not wait to share it! For some reason people (big corporations probably) don’t want us to know what we are putting into our bodies. They want to keep us in the dark, head down and ignorant. Well I am here to tell you that if you do that all will be lost. Your health, your families health and much, much more are at risk here.
What are you eating right now? Can you pronounce all the ingredients in that item?
This article was in a local flyer for my health food store, what a great idea to help get the word out. So here it is.

Your Right to know about GMOs

What are GMOs?

Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) are plants or animals created through the process of genetic engineering. This experimental technology forces DNA from one species in to a different species.

What are the impacts of GMOs?

Over 80% of all GMOs grown worldwide are engineered for herbicide tolerance. As a result, use of toxic herbicides like Roundup has increased 15 times since GMOs were introduced. GMO crops are also responsible for the emergence of “super weeds” and “super bugs” which can only be killed with even more toxic poisons.

GMOs in Canada

In over 50 countries around the world, there are restrictions or outright bans on the production and sale of GMOs. In Canada, the government has approved GMOs based on studies conducted by the same corruptions that created them and profit from their sale. Increasingly, Canadians are taking matters into their own hands and choosing to opt out of the GMO experiment.

Are GMOs Labeled?
Unfortunately, even though polls consistently show that a significant majority of Americans want to know if the food they’re purchasing contains GMOs, the powerful biotech lobby has succeeded in keeping this information from the public. In the absence of mandatory labeling, the Non-GMO Project was created to give consumers the informed choice they deserve.

What is the Non-GMO Project?

The Non-GMO Project offers North America’s ONLY third party verification for products produces according to rigorous best practices for GMO avoidance. Look for the butterfly to easily identify Non-GMO Project Verified products.

How can you avoid GMO foods?

·         Eat certified organic food- GMOs are prohibited from organic farming

·         Avoid eating processed food with corn, soy, and canola ingredients.

·         When buying foods or supplements look for a non-GMO statement on the package or the NON-GMO Project Verified Symbol

·         Buy can sugar to avoid consuming GMO sugar beet.

·         Support farmers who fight GMOs – buying food directly from farmers who do not plant GMOs helps support a supply of GMO free foods.

Wow that’s a lot to take in, I know. But it’s crazy what people think they can get away with these days. Support local and buy antibiotic grass fed meats and organic when you can. Hope this helps you on your journey to real food.
