Genetic Roulette

If you have been following my blog for a while you should know that I am adamantly against GMOs.  If you're new here I strongly recommend that you read my previous posts on GMOs.

*If you find my button on ANY website of blog that promotes GMOs or the use of pesticides I have NOT endorsed the blog/website*  We own and operate a non-gmo, heirloom seeds company. We are VEHEMENTLY against GMOs and the use of pesticides because of the health risks and long term damage to our earth!
If you have a moment, would you please "like" our brand new fb page GMO Free Worldwide and pass it on.  Any extra exposure is greatly appreciated.
 


I'll briefly summarized for you here before I share this movie trailer.
A Genetically Modified Organism (GMO), according to wikipedia, "is an organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. These techniques, generally known as recombinant DNA technology, use DNA molecules from different sources, which are combined into one molecule to create a new set of genes. This DNA is then transferred into an organism, giving it modified or novel genes." 

From the Non-GMO Project,  GMOs, or “genetically modified organisms,” are plants or animals that have been genetically engineered with DNA from bacteria, viruses or other plants and animals. These experimental combinations of genes from different species cannot occur in nature or in traditional crossbreeding.

Also from the Non-GMO Project, 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.

For more information on getting involved and educating yourself go to the Institute for Responsible Technology.  
Also, a HUGE Thank You to Joyce at It's Your Life for sharing this video with me.  After years of research I STILL learn new about new resources every day.

WHY is educating yourself about GMOs so important?  We eat food every day of our lives.  Don't you have the right to know what you are eating and feeding you family?

Yes, Mary they are destroying the original DNA of our food. This leaves it dead, but also our bodies do not recognize the new DNA which causes us to get sick and over weight.

We need to teach others about the dangers of GMOs.

Thanks for sharing this with us @ The Show Off Blog Party! Interesting read. Many of the GMO farms (Monsanto, Syngenta, etc.) are located in Hawaii growing corn. So it's nice to see them mentioned on here.

I have recently educated myself on GMO and I'm trying to eliminate all of them from my diet. But I found this interesting: We previously did mission work in Hungary, a country that is recovering from 40 years of Communism, a system that raped their natural resources, polluted their waters and let their national monuments decay. They are financially way behind the U.S. Yet, I recently read that they will not allow GMOs to be grown in their country despite the increased income they bring. It made me wonder what is wrong with the U.S. We have far more resources and money, yet we are blindly allowing this destructive food practice. Actually, I'm finding out that all of Europe is more conscientious about these things. I'll be reading more of your blog since I'm still learning. Thanks.
