The public wants to know what's in their food. Rightly so, and why not? Consumers in a free society should be able to make informed choices.
But not so in America. Consumer demands that food producers reveal GMO's and herbicides on labels have been thwarted again and again by commercial interests. Politicians, the USDA and FDA have sided with commercial interests by not forcing truth in labeling as they are mandated to do.
Genetically changing and poisoning nature is justified as necessary to meet the world's food demands. Not only is that not true, the real truth is that it is all about profiteering. Companies are highly motivated to create patented products farmers feel forced to use. For example, glyphosate (Roundup) will kill all crops along with the weeds. The solution is GMO crops that can withstand the herbicide. So, selling both GMO seeds and glyphosate is a wonderful heyday for them.
As usual, follow the money.
Evidence is mounting that glyphosate has far–reaching health and environmental consequences. For example, glyphosate-induced cancer. One man brought suit for his cancer and was awarded $289 million dollars. Such financial damage (or the damage we cause by not buying their tainted foods) is the only thing, apparently, that offers promise of responsible commerce. Regulators turn a blind eye while busying themselves harassing and prosecuting natural human and pet food manufacturers for picayune label matters that have nothing to do with health.
Glyphosate is a mineral chelator robbing critical enzyme systems of needed mineral cofactors. (It was originally invented in the 1950's to clean pipes of mineral deposits.) It also affects gene expression and disrupts virtually every metabolic pathway necessary for health and life. People with multiple health problems have experienced dramatic recoveries from just switching to organic foods.
Each day we need to produce our body weight in ATP, our energy currency created by mitochondria. If that were to shut down, we would die within a few seconds. Glyphosate disrupts mitochondria. Like an antibiotic, it destroys digestive tract probiotics. It disrupts hormones, creates leaky gut and other digestive problems, and is linked to a variety of child and adult immunological and behavioral problems.
Without our consent, it's now ubiquitous in the food supply and in our blood, hair, and tissues!
Little wonder food producers don't want it listed on their labels. Of 28 Cheerios and Quaker Oats products, all were contaminated. At as much as 2,837 ppb, Quaker Oatmeal Squares brown sugar and honey nut flavors had almost 18 times more glyphosate than the safety threshold of 160 ppb. In some cereals it would rank above several vitamins.
The inventor of the J.R. Simplot GMO potato now says his invention has serious health consequences, including reprogramming human DNA. sustainablepulse.com/2018/10/09/the-creator-of-gmo-potatoes-reveals-the-dangerous-truth-exclusive-interview
I am only touching on this issue. The Internet is replete with information to inform you on the dangers. A good start is responsibletechnology.org and secretingredientsmovie.com.
Unleashing biocides and GMO organisms into the environment is so incredibly irresponsible. Other than profit, the long-term results are unknown. What we do know is that every time nature is tinkered with, dire consequences result. But it's done with impunity because people have come to think of the world as nothing more than evolved matter. That false notion is demolished in this website, its podcasts, and youtube videos.
We can change our food situation by buying only organic. (French researchers have found that those who consume the most organic are 25% less likely to develop cancer.) Keep in mind that non-GMO does not mean organic. Non-GMO wheat and other grains can be saturated with glyphosate. It's applied right onto the crop just prior to harvest to increase yield. No need to try to wash it off. It's systemic in the plant.
Yes, organic costs more. But weigh that against the cost of disease. Also think of it as a contribution, not only to your health, but to farmers who have the conscience to do what is right.
Words of Wisdom:
The only difference between the Earth's surface and the moon is the few inches of natural untainted topsoil it has taken thousands of years to create.
