We hear about GMOs and Round Up
in our food supply,
but is it just another inevitable part of life?
Are we fighting a battle for GMO labeling
and regulation that can’t be won?
If you have not grasped the magnitude of GMOs on the planet, the issue could be easily dismissed. We all were unaware at some point because that was the plan. GMO crops were developed with very little investigation or regulation and they infiltrated our food supply before we understood. As people become aware of what GMOs do to the populations of animals and humans that eat them, they begin to step up, demanding unadulterated food.
At this point, GMO crops are within most manufactured foods. Almost all corn and wheat is from a GMO crop. This means that food products from corn oil to animal feed are poisoned. Most grain cereals and breads will show residue of Round Up, known also as glyphosate, which is the weed killer used to grow the super crops.
Your body regularly handles some poison and detoxes it with normal processing. I strongly believe that long-term illness and unexplained disease are the results of bodies that have reached their capacity to manage toxins and maintain health. Feeding daily doses within the food supply, and via toxic animals, is overburdening the body.
If you are already sick, you begin to understand the chain of events that brought your body into submission. If you are not yet, the problem seems less critical. The truth is that whatever your position, you have little choice. The public’s right to know if they are consuming GMOs has been blocked.
There is no labeling that identifies when you are consuming GMO products in the US, while entire countries have outlawed GMO production. Other nations demand truthful labelling so that the consumer can choose if and when to poison themselves.
America, forever feeding off corporate greed, has done neither of these things. Meanwhile, people are suffering from "designer diseases" for which "designer drugs" are soothing symptoms until death.
Poisoning is only one aspect of the damage glyphosate does in our food supply. It is important to understand that glyphosate is a chelator that also binds to minerals in the soil. GMO crops grown in glyphosate treated soil, which is essentially Round Up, are prevented from absorbing and utilizing these micronutrients because they are binding to the chemical. This means a weaker food supply for consumers.
Additionally the GMO plants are less able to draw in nitrogen and return it to the soil, which is what plants naturally do for us. Eventually we end up with nitrogen poor soil which is lacking in minerals and nutrient value. Ultimately there are fewer nutrients available for your body from commercially grown, GMO crops and their by-products. Our bodies slowly diminish as our food supply becomes less beneficial. We have become malnourished while eating plentiful amounts and becoming obese.
If your government put a stop to glyphosate use today, it will take a year for the glyphosate to begin to break down. After breaking down, it will take decades for it to disappear. This means you will have multiple sources of contamination for many years. It will be in the air, under your feet and in your food, not to mention any storage in your body organs or tissue.
If GMO production is everything it is touted to be, then there should be little issue with identifying its presence in our food supply. No one screams when food is labeled “organic.”
It is time to make a fuss over poison in your food.
