THE EFFECTS OF GENETICALLY MODIFIED FOODS



Here's another video that I think is very important. I don't know if everyone is aware of what's going on with GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms). The above video is short so it doesn't cover everything, but I think people are more likely to view a short video, so I'm posting it.

Jeffery Smith wrote the book "Seeds of Deception". If you read the book you will be well versed in GMOs. But I, at least, want everyone to know that if you are eating any kind of processed food, you are probably eating GMOs. The best way to avoid all GMOs are to eat organic food (GMOs are not allowed in organic) and to avoid all processed foods. If you can't do that, read all the ingredients and at least avoid those with the top 4 GMOs, corn, soy, cottonseed, and canola. Corn and soy is in the majority of processed foods, so you need to be very careful.

I also want to let you know that you need to avoid GMO produce as well, since I've discovered that most people don't know how to avoid GMO produce.  They don't post a sign, so you need to be careful if you want to avoid GMO food, and I strongly believe you should. No need to take my word for it, educate yourself.

The way to detect GMO produce, is to check the number on the produce. For example a conventional apple will have a number that starts with a "3" or a "4". A lot of the conventional produce doesn't have individual stickers, but you can check the sign, and if no sign you can ask, as they are supposed to have it listed. A conventional red delicious apple could have the number 3016 or 4016. If it is an organic red delicious, it would have a number that starts with a "9". Such as 94016. A GMO apple will start with an  "8". It could have a number like 84016. Remember organic is a "9", conventional is a "3" or "4", and genetically modified starts with an "8".

I'll be writing more about this important topic in the near future, as a very important decision is coming up by the FDA about allowing alfalfa to be genetically modified, and that would have disastrous consequences, especially for organics. I'll be posting more about this soon.

Take care of yourselves, you're the only one that can do it.

Good Health and Wealth,
