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.

Be Wise Newsletter: Problem: Roundup in your body? What’s the Solution?

What would you do if you knew the herbicide Roundup was accumulating in your body?


Roundup in breast milkSome innovative and concerned moms involved in Moms Across America commissioned a study to determine if glyphosate would be detected in breast milk.

And sure enough, there it is, accumulating in mother’s milk in 3 of the 10 samples tested. The levels they detected were “760 to 1600 times higher than the European Drinking Water Directive allows for individual pesticides (Glyphosate is both a pesticide and herbicide)”. This study found levels of 76 ug/l to 166 ug/l in mother’s 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.

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
