A Quick Note about Genetically Engineered Foods:
Many common foods are best avoided if you want to maintain good health, such as genetically engineered foods, canned foods (particularly acidic foods like tomatoes), corn-fed beef, and microwave popcorn, due to the dangerous additives and contaminants inherent in these foods.
Genetically engineered (GE) food is one of the most pressing dangers facing us as a species. A brand new organism thriving in GE soy and animals given GE animal feed has been identified, and a link between it and high rates of miscarriage and infertility in a number of animals has been established.
The vast majority of US-grown corn, soy, canola, cottonseed oil, and sugarbeets are genetically engineered, which means virtually every processed food you buy that does not bear the “100% USDA Organic” label is likely to contain at least one GE component.
The widespread use of glyphosate, the active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup, is exacerbating the problem. Glyphosate immobilizes certain nutrients, rendering them inaccessible to the plant, which in turn robs you of essential micronutrients you’d normally get from your food. It also cannot be washed off, as it is absorbed systemically through the plant, which means you’re consuming far more herbicide than ever before.
Glyphosate is suspected of causing genetic damage, infertility and cancer. It is also acutely toxic to fish and birds and can kill beneficial insects and soil organisms that maintain ecological balance.
