A Documentary Every American Needs To Watch
0

12 posts in this topic

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.

I am with L2T on this. I was sick at my stomach watching this. A very well done film.

I have sent it on to a number of people.

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.

    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Hello Elle Among this online community you are not alone in either your symptoms or how you feel about visiting the doctor.  I for one understand the anxiety that you are going through, my own weird nerve stuff and other puzzling symptoms have had me really scared at times.   So much you are going through could very well be gluten related, it really could.   But if it isn't, in the end it is worth trying to find out what it is going on so you can get the treatment you deserve. After all, it could have a really simple, treatable explanation, once the doctors know what it is. I remember reading on another website something that has helped me with my own health anxiety - if one can summon up the courage to go and see the doctor, one should pat oneself on the back and be proud of oneself for doing the right thing.  I'm not terribly keen on the idea of being a proud person - but I think it was meant in the best sense, and it is always good to do the right thing, even if one does it afraid!  It always makes me feel that bit stronger when I'm in the waiting room at the doctors! There is lots of great advice above.  Do take it and make sure you come back if you need further support. There are some fantastic people here to help.

      Hi Elle......do you think you would have better luck obtaining a full Celiac panel from your GP or a gastro doc?  You really need to be tested for Celiac because of all your symptoms.  Many other people probably thought they were dying of some horrible disease because they had so many symptoms that docs ignored.  Very common problem for us.  Plus, your Mom has had "IBS" all her life.  I should add that IBS is not a diagnosis.  No one needs to be told their bowel is irritated......they already know that.  This is where the medical establishment, no matter where you live in this world, fail us.  They need to find the root cause and there always is one.  You also do not need to have any gastro issues to be a Celiac but you do have some, along with all your symptoms mentioned.  Anxiety is a huge problem with Celiac Disease and for many, it goes away just fine on the gluten-free diet, without need of meds...which should always be a last resort measure.  I have never had an anxiety problem in my entire life until after I was diagnosed with Celiac.  I may have had it but with all the other numerous symptoms I had, the anxiety may have gotten buried somewhere.  But guess what? On the extremely rare occasion when I am glutened or cc'd, I get major anxiety for about 4 days and then its gone. B12 is a water soluble vitamin so whatever you don't use, it exits the body in your urine.  It is pretty damn hard to overdose on the stuff.  I take a B vitamin everyday, very high quality ones and my B12 is usually in the high 600 range.  Optimally, it should be between 650-800 so yours was abysmal pre-supplementation.  Absorption can also be affected by PPI's.  You did notice improvement with the tingling sensation and fatigue once your levels were way up so take notice of that. My biggest advice is to get your mother and you tested for celiac, with a FULL PANEL. Then you'll have to wait and see what that shows. You could always trial a gluten-free diet if all testing is complete and the results were either negative or inconclusive. That sometimes happens with people, especially if they have Celiac's other cousin......non-celiac gluten intolerance.  This would be the best route to go with regards to your anxiety, unless it becomes disabling and you need meds, short term. Make sure you tell them that anxiety is a HUGE symptom of Celiac and it is not normal for younger people to have extreme anxiety like that, for no reason. Good luck to you and please call and make the appointment. I understand your fear....I hate doctors and it's pure mistrust. But sometimes you have to address a problem head on.    
    • newbie diagnosed mom - testing 8 yr old now
      good to know. I am not going for a biopsy. I do not have health insurance, i know i know please no political comments. My children do. My husband and I don't right now. If we lived in another state, we would have coverage. I just made an appt to do a full blood panel for my daughter this week. I would rather find some confirmation for her through a blood test, i feel a scope is too invasive for a child.

    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Well, if I were you, I would go see your doctor and talk to him/her about all this.  Tell your doctor about your anxiety. When I finally did, my doctor prescribed a low dose of an anti-anxiety med and it has made a world of difference in my life.   About the whole thing with the B12 and the weird symptoms . Keep taking the B12 in the meantime to see if that helps again. But talk about it anyway.  If you want a celiac test, ask for the panel to be done. Your doctor may or may not want to send you to a GI for that. Remind him your mom is being tested. You do not have to wait for her results.  Work with your doctor if possible and if not, maybe find a doctor you can work with. If all you end up needing is b12, that's a good thing. If you end up needing more help, starting with your doctor and a heart to heart Talk will have you going in the right direction.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
