We are what we eat. When you really think about that statement, it’s rather scary. Why? Well, what do we eat? Do we really know what’s in the food we buy at the grocery store? Do we really take notice of the food packaging labels? And even if we do, what do all those complicated names really mean?
The North American food industry has developed into a genetically modified (GMO) hail storm. There is so much so-called food on the market that isn’t fit to feed rats, let alone humans. And, the increase in diseases like cancer, diabetes, obesity, liver disease and heart disease (to name but a few) can’t be mere coincidence. We need to know what we’re eating and the political powers that be don’t want to listen to our concerns. It’s all the big corporations, money talks campaign. Isn’t science wonderful? And look what science has allowed us to do to our food. The bottom line - genetically modified foods are dangerous and they are affecting our health. As geneticist David Suzuki says, “The safety of GMO foods is unproven and a growing body of research connects these foods with health concerns and environmental damage.”
People need to take notice and start to fight back. How? First by learning more about healthy, GMO-free eating. To start, read books like April Scott’s GMO-Free Child: A Parent's Guide to Dietary Cleanup of Genetically Modified Organisms. What you will learn will not only shock you, it will make you do a massive cleanup of your own food cupboard before heading to the nearest health food store to buy real food. The author has a lot of sage advice in her well-researched book, and her sources are well documented at the end. This is a good eye-opener look at the food we eat. We should have some say in this matter; after all it affects all of us, it affects our health and well being. A wonderful resource with an important message. Well done!
