Do you know about the dangers of genetically modified foods?

Seeds of Deception
by Jeffrey M. Smith

Do you know that non-organic fruits and vegetables sold at the grocery store have a good chance of being genetically modified? As well as vegetable oils, and packaged goods?

Almost all corn and soy (among other things) in the U.S. are now genetically modified. None of these GMO foods are labeled. This gives us no way of knowing if the foods we’re buying were created in a laboratory.

What are GMOs? This quote is taken from the Non-GMO Shopping Guide: “Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are made by forcing genes from one species, such as bacteria, viruses, animals, or humans, into the DNA of a food crop or animal to introduce a new trait.”

Many animals avoid eating GMO foods when given a choice. There have been several tests to see the effect of GMO foods on lab rats. They all ended up getting sick and dying, or becoming infertile.

One of the scariest things about GMO crops is that they cross-pollinate, by wind and other natural means, with normal crops. This contaminates the normal crops and turns them into GMOs.

Please read these 10 Reasons to Avoid GMOs from the Institute for Responsible Technology. Genetically modified foods are dangerous to our health and environment. 

You can also sign this petition for requiring GMO foods to be labeled: Label my Food! If protestors in Europe were able to get their foods labeled, we can do it here too.

Don’t allow yourself and your family to be deceived. We live in the day and age where we buy most of our food from the grocery store from only a few giant corporations… Remember, just because it looks like food doesn’t mean it is. Buy organic when you can, and look for non-GMO seals on foods.

Wishing you health and discernment!
