Do You Wonder What All The Fuss Is About Gmos?

Good Morning All-

 

I have to admit until very recently I had no idea what the big deal about GMOs was....

 

A GMO labeling law proposed in California last Fall was gaining momentum and looked as if it would pass - then Monsanto and other big chemical corporations threw a ridiculous amount of advertising dollars at California -- saturating the airwaves and tv commercials with claims that our groceries would become very expensive should Prop 37 pass -- it worked, the prop failed to pass with 47% of the vote -- my own parents voted early -- before I explained how important it was -- they thought they were helping the younger generation by not causing an increase in food cost.

 

If you live in a state with a GMO labeling proposition -- learn the facts aside from Big Chemical's propaganda!

 

Here is a great video -- it is long -- so pop some corn or grab whatever safe snack you enjoy and give it a watch.

Thanks :)

Shorter version:  These Big Ag chemical companies and Monsanto are insisting that the American public be forced to eat anonymous, unlabeled "foods" which have had other animals, plants, bacteria and fungi inserted into them,  because they intend to control the seed supplies which all farmers use worldwide, which will only perform with these herbicides they are hawking. 

 

Unlabeled food products = extreme danger to now about 10 to 15% of the population, with allergies and food intolerances.  And yes, they ARE trying to scam people into accepting GMO rice, by making it a pretty yellow color, and claiming they're going to save all those babies in the 3rd world with it.  They may as well put pictures of kittens on every sack.  They're also working on GMO wheat.  They've come up with a GMO sugar beet that they call the "Energy Beet™ " to make ethanol out of, because it has been altered to produce different kinds of sugars than regular sugar beets, that ferment better, and they're touting that this beet can be grown anywhere, unlike regular sugar beets.  Of course, they're pretending that the sugar beet PULP byproduct from this will not be used for human foods, but please prove to me that it is not going to be used for LIVESTOCK FEEDS just like any other processed sugar pulp beet running thru the same factories !   

 

.... and we wonder why feedlot animals need so much antibiotic to survive....  here comes more altered gut flora, for them. 

 

Unscrupulous and unethical plant research scientists in search of University money say things like "no proven danger."  When you run an experiment on human and livestock feeding, and don't TRACK THE RESULTS and compare them to those not eating the same thing, of course you get to say things like that.

This is depressing (and I don't even need to get glutened to get depressed by this). I worry that by the time consumers get concerned enough, assuming it ever happens, it will be too late.

I think it is already too late. I didn't watch the video, so I'm not sure if this gets touched on, but now farmers are dealing with "genetic pollution" Where the pollen (and therefore inserted genetic material) is being spread by insects / wind to what are supposed to be non-gmo crops. Soon, seeds everywhere could be contaminated with all sorts of genes that don't belong and that do who knows what to humans and animals (domestic and wild). I don't have much hope for the long term survival of the human race.

i see that this topic is 2 years old; but for those of you who are still interested in GMO labeling, the US House of Rep. voted last week to pass the DARK (Deny Americans the Right to Know) Act.  On August 5th, a petition asking the US Senate to stop the DARK ACT and JUST LABEL IT will be presented.  If you want to sign the petition, you can do this on the EWG site.

 

I feel like my life has been dramatically impacted for the worse by food.  I want to know exactly what I am putting in my mouth.

    • Think about this.  I have only had my daughter tested for celiac disease.  She tested negative.  She will need to be retested sometime in the future or when symptoms develop.  But genetic testing?  This might impact her insurability in terms of health and life.  I do not have the answers, but I would research this before having everyone tested.  Some 40% of the population carries the genes to develop celiac disease.  Only a very few actually develop it.  Insurance companies will deny you for all kinds of lame reasons.  Just be careful. 
    • I think for adults who are disabled or have really low incomes, they should be allowed to keep their Rx.  But anyone else who is an adult and has a job, they should pay their own way.  There are so many options available in the UK now and their gluten-free options are really good.  You have better bread than we do in the States and the cost in many instances is lower than it is here.
    • Ennis....pertaining to food deductions, you can deduct the price difference between those items that you would have to buy a gluten free version of because there are no other options......like all the mixes and things mentioned.  Chips, not so much, as many chips are already gluten free so it would not apply.  Those would be your safest bet as you probably will be audited for doing this.  That's how the IRS works. If there are big changes regarding deductions, that will raise a red flag and your chances of being audited go up.  You sound like you keep good records so don't sweat it if you will gain a benefit in income from doing so.  You do realize that you have to have a minimum of 10% of your adjusted gross income to even begin to deduct anything?
    • Hey guys The topic title is actually misleading a little, I had an endoscopy in december, was told it was a little inflamed and they were pretty sure it wasnt celiacs, just a minor gluten intolerance.  Long story short, its now July, had to cancel appointments due to moving to london. tried ringing for results for a long time. Nothing. Last week, find out I am celiac with some eroded Villi.....from December Anyway. I have been gluten free for 2 weeks. I have had problems with kidneys aching, stomach pains, bladder pains, all sorts. before hand, I cut the gluten down, but was not entirely gluten free. I was told that it was early stages.    Gluten Free I am not finding so hard, but I am waking up EVERY morning with stomach pains still. Or bladder, or whatever. Ill go back to the docs soon. Ive been having a lot of fruit and I am wondering if the fibre is not letting my stomach settle. Also that dairy products might be causing the issue. I was basically trying to absorb some nutrients to get rid of my hurrendous exhaustion, I cant be malabsorbing as I still have Villi.    Any advice, anything would be great
    • Thanks for the info.  I will ask the GI about my twin sister and nephews to see if they need to be tested regularly too.  I'm hoping our insurance will pay for gene testing also to help rule any of us out if possible.
