Do you wonder why Autism, Allergies, Asthma, Fibromyalgia, Cancers, Crohn’s disease, Respiratory illnesses, Headaches, ADD/ADHD, and more disorders have mysteriously gone through the roof?  There seems to be no explanation.  The millions that are spent on research mainly focus on coming up with drugs for the symptoms of these disorders without addressing the root of the problem.  The pharmaceutical industry seeks a hamster wheel solution for the problems.

There is a proposition in California, Prop 37 that did not pass.  This proposition would require any products that contain GMO to be labeled.  Some critics say that it could cause frivolous lawsuits.  What I feel is more than frivolous is that we have been fed GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms) products for years without our knowledge.  I want the choice and without the knowledge, the only way to know for sure is to grow and make my own products.    Many products you have in your home are GMO. This could be produce from the fruit and vegetable isle.  Processed foods have extracts and or derivatives in them.  Pharmaceuticals and personal care items contain GMO much of the time.  Corn and soybeans are the most prolific GMO’s but other items could be canola, cotton seed oil, tomatoes, papaya, potatoes, rice, milk (rBGH as well as what the corn and soy the cows eat),  that are pervasive in our food supply.

As a side note, the other devastating compound in our food is mono-sodium glutamate and its derivatives.  This compound tricks you brain that the food your eating tastes better than it truly does.  The FDA allows it and its derivatives to be called more than 100 other names such as “natural flavors, caseinate, hydrolyzed protein, yeast extract or autolyzed yeast, and glutamic acid.”

How bad are GMO products?  I have suspected it is bad for a long time and now more scientific proof is coming out.  I say, “Eliminate all GMO ecpecially corn and soy products from you diet.”  They are the most pervasive GMO’s  in your diet.  That goes for any any animal and animal byproducts that are commercially raised as well.  Until you can be 100% sure that there is no GMO  and Roundup residue in the product, don’t eat it.  Something that looks healthy is not if it is produced from GMO seeds and sprayed with Roundup or has eaten a GMO crop.

This is not reserved to products that you put in your mouth but products you put on your body.  Your skin and lungs absorb many things we put on them.

Good taste is normally an indicator of quality.  Our taste buds are designed to taste the difference between high mineral quality and diversity and quality phyto-nutrients etc.

Look at all the products put on our bodies such as shampoo.  Did you realize that Decyl Glucoside is made from glucose from corn (GMO most likely with the pesticide still in it) and a coconut derivative.

Over the counter and prescription drugs can contain corn derivatives for fillers and encapsulation, caking ingredients etc.  This can extend even to the glucose found in hospital intravenous solutions.

The pervasiveness and integration of GMO’s in our society is mind boggling.  Is it any wonder that all industries that use these products are fighting very hard against Proposition 37.  The companies don’t want the extent of the GMO penetration to be revealed.

Here is the partial list of corn ingredients that are in our food and personal care and drug supply.  I list only the corn products and derivatives but the list is very large for soy as well:

Alcohol – is your Jack Daniels GMO free?
Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C)
Baking Powder
Calcium Citrate
Calcium Citrate
Magnesium Citrate
Potassium Citrate
Sodium Citrate
Citric Acid
Corn Meal
Corn Starch
Corn Syrup
Decyl Glucoside
corn sugar
Ferrous Gluconate
Artificial Flavoring or Flavors
Natural Flavoring
Golden Syrup
Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein (HVP)
Lactic Acid
Lauryl Glucoside
Magnesium Stearate
Malic Acid
Malt Flavoring
Methyl Gluceth
Modified Food Starch
Monosodium Glutamate
Polylactic Acid
Potassium Citrate
Powdered Sugar
Sodium Citrate
Sodium Erythorbate
Sodium Starch Glycolate
Sorbitan Monostearate
Sweet’N Low
Tocopherol (Vitamin E)
Vanilla Extract
Xanthan Gum

I didn’t include the dreaded High Fructose Corn Syrup.  Don’t we all know how terrible that is already?

If you’re not a label reader, start reading and if you don’t recognize an item it is probably not helpful at least and at worst be causing you misery and contributing to a shorter life.

Now, here is a documentary that will make you a little sicker to your stomach when you realize that we are treated the same as laboratory mice or rats by unscrupulous companies such as Monsanto.
