SOS 4: Find Non-GMO Food in An Abundance of Resources

Healthy Non-GMO Food

In an effort to Save Our Selves, Save Our Children and Save Our Planet from the ubiquitous presence of genetically modified (GM) food in our food supply that carries residues of glyphosate (Roundup) we’re on the hunt for non-GMO sources of food. We’ve already discussed eating only organic food which by definition has to be free of genetically modified components and some ways to find non-GMO food.

Let’s delve a bit further into great resources in our search for non-GMO food.

Why is it important to avoid genetically modified food?

Let’s look at the problems, one at a time and then think of the possibilities to deal with the problems.

First of all, why are many food crops genetically engineered (GE) or modified (GM)?

GE modification of corn, soy, sugar beet, cotton, canola and other seeds produces plants that live after being sprayed with Roundup (glyphosate). The weeds die but the food crops survive. So application of glyphosate saves the farmer lots of time and labor costs for dealing with weeds.

SOS 1: Our Smartness is Killing Us

The Bad News – Good News Story

SOS Save Our Selves

First the Bad News:

Has it ever occurred to you that we’ve become so smart that we’re killing ourselves?

Science produces chemicals that induce cancer. Then other scientists perform research to find out what’s causing cancer. And others look for cures for cancer.

These chemicals invade our environment gradually building up in our bodies until the toxic load tips us into ill health. Then we pay more scientists to find out what’s causing all of this disease and to develop more drugs to treat it. More drugs mean more chemicals invading our bodies … Read the rest
