I take it that you are a member of this forum because you are serious about your health. But how serious are you, really? Watch this movie. It has proved to be the single most eye-opening, informative and educational learning tool for me as far as what is safe for me to consume.

Check it out, you'll be glad you did. It's free to watch this week only:

P.S.
I'm 28 years old. I've spent the last two years of my life feeling like i total crap. Everyday, just completely run down, physically and mentally. I've spent the last 3 days of my life eating grain-free, GMO free, and purely organic. I've never felt so alive, energized and happy. The change was almost immediate.

Not just every American but every Canadian as well! I used to work for an organic certifying agency (and loved it and learned a LOT) so am very aware of the dreadful GMOs. However, this video held a sense of urgency and renewed my disgust in what we unquestioningly accept. It was also helpful to see the latest 2012 information. This video really could be lifechanging. Shame on Monsanto. :angry:

Thank you for sharing this. Highly fascinating.

For those of you who don't have time to watch the whole thing, believe me, if you did watch it you would definitely do everything you can to avoid GMO foods. During the last ten minutes of the film they mentioned this site: http://www.nongmoshoppingguide.com/
I just added it to my favorites bar.

BridgeOfSighs, I can't thank you enough! (Great screen name too by the way.)

Thanks for posting the web link Bartfull, I was going to try looking for that.

And Bridge thanks for posting the video. It's kind of long but definitely worth watching. I'll be looking for non-GMO next time I shop.

Thanks for posting. I already watched it. I hadn't understood before that one reason for the development of GMOs was to enable the use of massive amounts of round up. That might be more responsible for the problems than the genetic modifications.

It would be interesting to compare the numbers of people (and animals) with each of the different medical problems in Europe and in America. I'm not sure all of that info is available on the web, and I don't have time today to look these things up, but maybe on Monday I'll take a look.

It might well be the Roundup causing the problems, but I suspect it is a combination of both. I know that I was reacting to pesticides before my gut healed, and I imagine herbicides are just as bad. But because they not only modified these plants to withstand Roundup but they also inserted pesticide genes into them, I'm pretty sure we are all ingesting pesticide with each bite of GMO food we eat. It CAN'T be good for us!

I never knew anything about GMOs killing animals, or workers in South Africa getting sick/dying from eating the crop they feed their cattle, or new-found organisms created from it that are killing animals. Thank you for posting.

The scariest thing to me is that despite there being government controls to avoid us ever getting something toxic or harmful from into our food, that nevertheless they have not prevented it in the least. Theres reasons I never really gave a thought about GMOs being harmful.

I imagine some of those organisms they've found in animals that kill them can be found in people.

I just thought this might explain what I think might be a reaction to processed corn yet why the corn on the cob I eat is fine. I eat the local corn on the cob only. I eat whatever for processed corn. I will have to look into this further.

Wow, very eye-opening, and I've been getting their emails for a few months now. I was 20 minutes into it and paused it to email the link to my brother, wish I'd have watched it earlier in the week. As soon as my budget allows, I think I'll buy the dvd.

I watched this last night and I threw out all of my gluten free food which is GMO. I was horrified to learn about the history of the implementation of genetically modified food into our food chain.
