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.

    • I think she wants you to be strictly gluten free and heal.  Not give you things to patch up the damage you are causing by not getting your antibodies down and healing.   I am sure  she expected that you would take your diagnosis seriously and eat gluten-free.  4 months after your diagnosis, your antibodies would have gone down better.  But you weren't eating gluten free.  Eat gluten free. Take your supplements.  Read about the correct way to get your iron up - B12, vitamin C, don't take with calcium foods, etc  
    • Hello! I'm hoping to get some advice from y'all about iron IV infusions. First, some background: I was diagnosed with celiac disease at the beginning of June this year (2017).  I had labs done in March and my serum ferritin was 5 ng/mL. Hgb was 11.1, which isn't all that low, but is still flagged as below the normal range. I took 325 mg ferrous gluconate supplements daily for two months, and when my ferritin was rechecked, it was down to 4. The doctor ordered a celiac antibody panel and all of the levels were high. Confirmed with endoscopy at the end of May. A month later, I left for a 2-month study abroad program in France (aka the land of bread and pastries). After returning to the US at the beginning of August, I finally went gluten-free.  At the beginning of September, I returned to my University. Almost immediately, I realized I was really tired and was having a hard time making it through the day without a nap. I finally had a follow-up GI appointment around September 20th with the PA of the doctor who performed my endoscopy (not the same doctor from March). During the appointment, I asked her what we would do if my labs showed an iron-defiency. She told me that we would either do oral supplements or IV infusions, depending on whether or not she thought I'd absorb the supplements. When the lab results came in on the online patient portal, she made no comment on any of the iron-related results, just sent me a message that my antibody levels were still quite high, that I needed to keep up a strict gluten-free diet, and that we would recheck everything in six months. My ferritin was down to 3, Hgb was 10.3, iron saturation 6%, etc.  I was concerned about those results, so I called the PA's nurse and left a voicemail asking what the plan was for getting those levels up and got a portal message back from the PA saying that my hemoglobin was slightly low and will get better over time as I cut out all the gluten in my diet, but that I can start taking supplements if I want to speed up the process. I know that the Hgb still isn't that low, but it seems like the ferritin level is more serious. I went back for an appointment with the doctor who first found the iron-deficiency back in the spring and she seemed a lot more concerned. When I brought up IV iron therapy, she seemed to think it was a good idea. However, she's a primary care physician through my school's clinic, so she can't give me infusions. She called the PA with the intention of finding out whether or not she would change her mind about infusions, and had no luck. Interestingly, the PA's nurse informed her that they don't expect me to be able to absorb the supplements right away, and would consider IV infusions after I've been gluten-free for another six months.  I've done a bit of research on the IV infusions and it seems like I fit the criteria. Based on my antibody levels, I'm clearly not able to absorb iron any better than back in the spring, when the oral supplements did nothing for me. I understand that once my intestines heal more, I'll start being able to absorb iron better and should be able to boost my levels with oral supplements. However, I feel like I need a solution that will help me much sooner. I have a very demanding course load this semester and I'm constantly exhausted. I fall asleep doing homework at least twice a week. My grades are suffering, my mental health is suffering, and my relationships are being tested. I still don't have an explanation for why the PA doesn't think IV infusions are appropriate and I don't understand it. I really don't know what to do next because I'm afraid if I try to talk to the PA again, she'll get annoyed. I know that was super long, so for anyone still reading, thank you for bearing with me!! Now for the questions: 1. Do you think iron IV infusions in the near future would be a reasonable treatment for me? 2. Do you have any advice on how to make them happen? And if you have any other advice that's relevant to my situation, I'd love to hear it!   Thanks so much, Sofie
    • I can tell you that last week, I picked up and delivered 30 boxes of Costco pizza to a hungry marching band.  I lived!  Seriously, just wash your hands after handling.  Ennis is right.  Do not take a big sniff of the boxes in case there is any residual flour.  It took days for my van to air out and I did lay some old beach towels to protect my interior as normally, gluten is not allowed!  
    • I just found a nicer compilation of her work, much easier to understand. She also makes the connection between Sleep apnea, vit. D and the gut. Maybe you will enjoy it too:  https://www.vitamindwiki.com/Handout+on+Vitamin+D+(Hormone+D)+and+sleep+-+Gominak+2012 She mentions autoimmune diseases in general but not Celiacs. But I think it all connects and makes sense.  You are right, no matter how a post is, someone might read it. I did. 
    • i looooove nuts.com.  i've already ordered all my nuts, etc, for holiday baking from them.  if you order (i think it's 65 bucks) enough, you get free shipping.  the nuts are so pretty, not all busted up and stuff.  they send you a little sample with your order (this time it was goji berries) also, i got pepitas and sweet rice flour.  they have added alot of new products.  i highly recommend them
