GMO’s–Genetically Modified Organisms–Frankenfood

Posted by justanotherstayathomemom on June 22, 2009

Well, a good friend of mine sent me an email today about GMO’s and how they are the bane of society. 

I tend to agree with her. 

I understand the basic premise of altering our food’s genetic make-up for the better-ment of society, mainly by food becoming shelf stable for a long time…a really long time.  And because it looks fantastic…you don’t realize that tomato you are eating on your hamburger is acutally three weeks old.  It’s an atrocity.  How nutritious do you think that tomato is?  How long do you think it took to get to your local Micky D’s? 

We really have lost all touch with reality when it comes to our food.

GMO’s can currently be found in 95% of our corn supply, in our canola, soy and cotton.  All of these are marketed by a company called Monsanto, a multi-billion dollar pesticide and seed manufacturer. 

They own patents on seeds.  If they find their seed growing in your field because it blew in from another farmer’s field, or was dropped there by a passing bird, they will sue you.  Nice folks. 

Now, the powers that be, are getting ready to add wheat to the GMO list.  And then, whether you want to or not, you will be eating wheat created in a lab.  Kewl.  Really (rolls eyes).

Here is a really neat movie about our food system and how perverted it is courtesy of Monsanto and greed.  It’s long, about an hour and a half, but it’s eye opening.

(one of these days i will figure out how to imbed one of these video thingies)

I have watched about half of it, and it’s very disturbing, to say the least. 

I don’t know what else to say about it.  We have to change our diet, I have to change our diet.  I’m working on it. 

hmmm…i will be doing more research on this topic…it’s very interesting to me
