Let’s discuss GMO’s

Let us know what we are eating!

When leaded paint was discovered in toys manufactured in China for kids here in the U.S. there was a huge public outcry about safety and the potential poison when ingested and exposure to lead toxicity. Do you remember? Or what about the controversy today surrounding mercury fillings–now–30+ years after the fact it was deemed perfectly suitable and “SAFE” to fill our teeth? Historically our country was founded on public outcry–over our inherent rights and freedom not allowed by a controlling Monarchy. But we seem to be confused and have lost our way with GMO’s. Perhaps if it was as simple as seeing 3-eyed fish in our supermarkets we would be alarmed!

Today, GMO’S are on my mind. For those unfamiliar with this term, it means “Genetically Modified
Organism”; or less common GE meaning “genetically engineered”. GMO’S are in everything we eat today. Have they contributed to and are they part of the reason we have a dramatic increase in the sickness and dis-ease we experience as a culture today? Does the microscopic universe deep within our cells feel this assault and poisoning everyday? Does it surface in cancer, auto immune and unexplained maladies which affect our brain, organs and nervous system each and everyday day?

A study published in Nature shows that pollen from B.t. Corn (genetically modified) caused high mortality rates in Monarch Butterfly caterpillars. Hum? Are we not seeing the canary? This splicing technology done by the huge evil empires of Monsanto and Dupont in the chemical/agriculture business does not and cannot occur in nature or in traditional crossbreeding. I ask, what is the indirect cost to us? our children? our spouses? and our parents when they lay dying or ill in the hospitals as they manipulate the truth in order to line their pockets with gold? According to Natural News, there is “a growing body of evidence that connects GMO’S with health problems, environmental damage and violation of farmers’ and consumer rights.” When will we wake up and realize that some things are NOT an improvement on Mother Nature’s original design? “In the U.S., the government has approved GMO’S based on studies conducted by the same corporations that create them and profit from their sale.” It seems like the fox is watching over the hen-house!

We as a Nation are appalled at the atrocities of Tiananmen Square, or Soviet Bloc policies or even the treatment of women by the Taliban. Yet are we so blind that we not notice our own sly and political corruption motivated by greed and control? Monsanto and Dupont dumped 45 million to the campaign to defeat Proposition 37 in the state of California. Believe it or not, Prop. 37 only asked for the “Right to Know“. Is that really too much to ask? I think not. Those who control the food supplies control the world. Fear rides in place of integrity among many. Isn’t it time that we know what we are eating? Why must this be held in such secrecy? If this food is safe as the developers and genetically bio-tech proponents claim –then let me chose. Don’t I have that right? I for one want to know what I am eating. Please join me in the small request to Label our food. Let me know how it was grown. Let me make my own choice. As, it stands, I must remove the poison mercury fillings from my teeth. Ridding my cells of toxic poisons is not as easy to see or something I care to do in the future. Are you with me? Sadly, the GMO battle seems like a movie plot for James Bond–Monsanto and Dupont playing contemporary villain Dr. No.
