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.

SOS 3: Problem: Roundup in your body? Solution: Non-GMO Certified Food

Roundup in breast milk








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.

Deceiver Undermines Our Food Supply

As I was preparing for an upcoming speaking engagement about nutrition and exercise for Autoimmune Diseases, I thought, do I know anything about this subject? – No. Then I did the research and discovered – yes I know all about it!


The same things are causing most degenerative diseases – deception and environmental toxins. So if we get knowledge and apply it with wisdom (make good choices) we can prevent or reverse disease processes.


That lead to this inspiration about the big picture of what’s going on the world in regard to deception.


God created these magnificent … Read the rest

So What’s the Problem with Genetically Modified Food?

Why would you want to eat genetically modified food?


Here are some points to ponder:


Genetically modified food has not been tested for safety over a long time period. The biotechnology companies that produce the GM food conducted some short-term studies on small mammals like rats and hamsters. They reported no significant findings of ill health.


And the FDA accepted those findings without any other oversight of the testing at all. They just took the biotechnology company’s word for it.


However some well respected and honest scientists around the world became quite concerned about the long-term … Read the rest

Medical Professionals Endorse the California Right to Know GMO Food Initiative

After hearing all of Monsanto and the big food industry companies’ negative campaign against California’s Prop 37 initiative to mandate labeling food that has genetically modified components, I was thrilled to discover that doctors are supporting and endorsing the passage of Prop 37.


But first let’s clarify what we’re talking about when it comes to genetically modified organisms (food) aka GMO.


Understanding Genetically Modified Food


Let’s review basics about genetically modified food. Monsanto, the company that produces the genetically modified seed, controls the patent on these seeds. If a farmer tries to save his own seed like … Read the rest

Please, Please Study California’s Proposition 37 Carefully

Have you heard the ads against proposition 37 on our California ballot in November? Some of the statements are obvious lies. Then listen to the list of sponsors of the campaign against prop 37. Monsanto tops the list, followed by the big food industry, none of whom I want to trust with my health. They are more interested in your dollars than your health!


They also want to keep you in the dark about whether you are eating genetically modified food. You may be trying to eat optimally healthy and not be aware of the potential time bomb lurking … Read the rest

Shortage of Corn – A Blessing in Disguise

The looming shortage of corn may be a blessing in disguise.


But if you have been listening to the news you’ve heard that food prices will rise about 4% because of the drought affecting the corn harvest.


You may be saying, “But I don’t eat corn so why should I worry about a 4% rise in corn prices”.


And you may very well be right if you eat food that does not have ingredients, but rather are the ingredients. In other words if you’re avoiding packaged, processed food and preferring whole vegetables, fruit, meat, whole grains and … Read the rest

Hidden Dangers in Kids’ Meals

Summer finally arrived for us this year, much later than usual. So the garden got a very late start, but it’s bursting forth now as it soaks up all of that sunshine.

I’m not complaining though about the late start of summer. I loved the rain and cool weather and so did the 2,000 Ponderosa Pine trees we planted on our property this spring as we reclaimed our little part of the forest from the overgrowth of brush that feeds the fuel ladder if a fire ever erupts. Those little trees grew more in 3 months than the few that … Read the rest
