If you want to know more about genetically engineered food,  watch the
YouTube video that I've posted at the end of the post. It's recorded by a mother and
she presents some valuable information in a very simple format

The other day I was visiting a blog called Natural Well Nest . Josefa posted a very
informative post about genetically modified food and many links to other resources to
 find out more information. In addition, she posted a number of informative You Tube
videos . All the videos were good, but I found one in particular outstanding that I posted below.

According to the Vidoe: 
7 Reasons You Should Be Concerned About Genetically Engineered Food ( GMO's) 

  • There has been a major unnatural change in our seed supply that is used to grow agriculture here  in the US since 1966 
  • The new seeds have been genetically modified ( mostly by a monopoly company called Monsanto that puts pressure on all big farmers to use them) 
  •  European countries feel that the new seeds may be unsafe because there is no way to really test the results except long term; Most European countries  and ban the use of these seeds.
  • There has been an unusually huge rise in allergies in the US since the 1960's 
  • The rate of cancer in the US outnumbers the rate of cancer in any other country
  • 1 in 10 cancers in the US are traced to genetic origin ( passed through genes of family) 
  • 9 out of 10 cancers in the US are traced to environmental origin ( from our food supply, pesticides, toxins, radiation,  etc.) 
  • In Europe large corporations like  Kraft comply to European standards and they sell products that do not contain GMO's chemicals, dyes, etc t. BUT in the US we accept the food with the dyes, chemicals etc. so its cheaper and that is what they cell us. 
  • GMO's are some of the most basic food that you eat- If we keep buying it, they will keep making it. We can't fight Monsanto- it's BIG-- we we have the power to say no and just don't buy these products. Watch the video.. it will help you understand. 
The quality of our food and water does affect us! 
We can not ignore it any longer- what you don't know can hurt you.

This You Tube is Great! Take the time to watch it.. you'll thank me

  1. I think we are all eating GMOs. Californians tried require labeling but the big chemical companies came in and overpowered the organic farms. I just read that they found pork DNA in cadberry chocolates. :(

    1. pork in cadberry Yikes that is scarry. It is my understanding that the produce at Trader Joe's is from GMO free farms, but they don't say it in writing only verbally.

      Thanks for this post! I agree, it is ridiculous for Americans to accept GMOs when the companies have proved they can make non-GMO products for the EU.

  7. Hi Judee,
    This is clearly a case where knowledge is power! We must demand GMO labeling, fight for the right to know what is in our food and exert our right to choose what is good for us to eat. We must say NO to GMOs. I have also written about this issue and I recently read a powerful post about all of the so-called natural and organic brands that are actually owned by huge GMO-supportive corporations. Misinformation is everywhere so thank you so much for sharing this powerful video and vital information about the dangers of GMOs with us at the Plant-Based Potluck Party Blog Hop! I appreciate it!
