GM food is on the rise, not through public choice but due to the same kind of government lobbying, deceptive marketing that popularised cigarettes, milk, eggs, meat, fast food, fizzy drinks, alcohol and processed foods, which were all advertised as healthy and attractive to consume at one time or another.
It is your responsibility to check what you are putting in to your body, so please take it seriously. Start by looking at the ingredients on the food you purchase. Remember, if you cannot pronounce it, it is probably one of the “E numbers”. So, for the sake of your health, please investigate before you buy and then take action by adapting your food purchases accordingly.
Stop spending on chemical laden foods and eat more natural foods our bodies will assimilate, enjoy and react to in a positive manner, and these are organically grown plant-based foods.
Today, there are more people becoming sick and consuming more prescription drugs to combat their sickness. However, eating plant based foods, eliminating or significantly reducing processed foods and animal products from our diets and participating in daily exercise would help to alleviate many of the health problems afflicting society.
When purchasing animal products, you will not be told about the genetically modified, growth hormones, tranquillisers and antibiotics that are present in animal tissue. This is also true for some genetically modified (GM) foods. No one is going to tell you that you are about to purchase pesticide-laden products that have been genetically modified.
As it does not sound very appetising, such information is kept from us because there are no laws obliging to disclose all information on some of the foods marketed.
“Products such as flour, oils and glucose syrups have to be labelled as GM if they are from a GM source. Products produced with GM technology (cheese produced with GM enzymes, for example) do not have to be labelled. Products such as meat, milk and eggs from animals fed on GM animal feed also don’t need labelling.“
Source: Food Standard Agency UK. 2009 NB: As of January 2010 the labelling of GM foods is no longer required.
If you do not know, you will continue to buy, and that is why awareness is so important. Most people would prefer to eat organically grown quality food, rather than their genetically modified counterparts because the former is natural and has more nutrients while the latter is processed and has serious potential health risk.
Yet more and more animals are being fed GM fodder, and we are seeing more GM foods on supermarket shelves, marketed to us as excellent, natural and quality foods, without revealing all of the ingredients.
Please have a look at some food items in your kitchen. After reading this, how do you feel? What changes would you like to make about yourself, and how could a dietary change help you?@5 months ago with 1 note
