Say NO to GMOs!

  1. 1. Say NO to GMOs!
  2. 2. What are  Genetically Modified Organisms are experimental plants or animals that have been genetically engineered in a labratory with DNA from other plants, animals, bacteria, & viruses. These experimental combinations of genes from different species cannot occur in nature or in traditional crossbreeding.  Virtually all GMOs are engenered to withstand direct application of herbicide and / or produce an insecticide.  GMO foods have been around since the late1990’s.
  3. 3. Are GMOs Safe? The fact is that there is NO LONG TERM TESTING done on GMOs and their effect on the human race.  Rats fed lifetime of GM corn grow horrifying tumors and 70% of females die early.  Even squirrels know its not suppose to be eaten.
  4. 4. Not to Mention…  Most developed nations do not consider GMOs to be safe. In more than 60 countries around the world, including Australia, Japan, and all of the countries in the European Union, there are significant restrictions or outright bans on the production and sale of GMOs.  In the U.S., the government has approved GMOs based on studies conducted by the same corporations that created them and profit from their sale.
  5. 5. Monsanto is Evil  Monsanto has been in the poison game for a long time.  GMO food can be patented.  Monsanto’s Roundup is killing bees by the million – and we can’t live without bees. “If you control the food supply, you control the people.” – Henry Kissinger
  6. 6. Did You Know… In 2001 Epicyte Corporation isolated a protein that causes sterility and spliced its genes into corn so that men and women eating the corn would become sterile. Guess who bought that from them? MONSANTO DID. To date No congressperson, No Senator, and No Presidential candidate has dared to ask WHY? Instead, they mandated that all corn needs to be bought from Monsanto. Is it just me, or does that not sit well with you either?
  7. 7. Linked to Cancer, Autism, and Parkinson’s Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, is the most popular herbicide used worldwide. Monsanto asserts it is not toxic to humans, but here a new study proves otherwise. When we take into account of the significant increase in Autism, something very profound emerges.  One in 150 kids were diagnosed on Autism Spectr um in 2007  One in 100 kids were diagnosed Autism Spectrum i n 2009  One in 50 kids were diagnosed on Autism Spectr um in Mar. 2013.  The rate was 1 in 10,000 in 1970 .

  8. 8. Are You Eating GMOs?  Did you know that 80% of processed foods in your standard grocery store are GMO? Most people are eating GMO and are completely unaware about it.  In the United States, 94% of soy, 88% of corn, 90% of canola, 95% of sugar beets, 25,000 acres of zucchini and yellow crook neck squash and almost all Hawaiian papaya are now genetically modified.
  9. 9. How To Keep your diet GMO-Free  Go Organic! The USDA prohibit GMOs, so shopping organic is a great way to avoid them. Plus, organic foods have (fewer) or no pesticides, herbicides and fungicides, and have a higher vitamin and mineral content as well.  Load up on Fruits and Veggies. (Most fresh produce is non GMO, ask your local farmer!)  Look for Non-GMO verified label.  Join a local activist group to bring awareness to more people!  Beware of additives – corn, canola, soy, cotton and sugar beets. (In the form of corn syrup, oil, sugar, flavoring agents, or thickeners)  Choose wild caught seafood. (Farm raised fish are feed GMO)  Say NO to at risk ingredients. Skip soybeans, canola, cottonseed, corn and sugar from sugar beets.  Call ahead before eating out. The next time you plan a nice dinner out, beware of "invisible ingredients" like soy sauce, cooking oil and salad dressing, which might contain genetically modified ingredients.  Focus on Fiber. Most grains, seeds, nuts and beans are non-gmo.  Avoid aspertame. An ingredient in diet sodas and low-calorie "sweets," aspartame is indeed genetically modified.
  10. 10. Take a Deep Breathe! Start with baby steps! Don't feel overwhelmed -- just do the best you can. Start by eliminating GMOs for just a couple of weeks and pay close attention to your health, weight, energy and mood. AND SPREAD THE WORD!
