Lisa Says: GMO ( or Genetically Engingineered) foods are causing untold health issues and are of grave concern for the literal future of the world’s food sources. Rex and I are not conspiracy theorists but practically speaking, this is COMMON SENSE. We grow heirloom organic veges based on what space allows and actively shop for non-GMO foods.

Talking about this subject will not win me any friends nor will I have my phone ringing off the hook with people wanting more information. However, those of you who know me, know that I feel “called” to reveal truth (and expose lies) around the food and drug industry. The issue of GMO foods can no longer slide under the radar. Today’s link offers a mouth-dropping expose on the company responsible for the rapid demise of our food supply.
For years I’ve known that Monsanto was responsible for manufacturing and marketing aspartame, the artificial sweetener that is poisoning our nation, one soft drink at a time. In more recent years, great controversy has arisen around this entire GMO food subject. I’m not extremely knowledgeable about this, but there is enough information now available to warrant blowing the whistle of alarm.
According to Wikipedia.com, a genetically modified organism (GMO) or genetically engineered organism (GEO) is an organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. With this technology, DNA molecules from different sources are combined into one molecule to create a new set of genes. This DNA is then transferred into an organism and causes it to acquire modified traits.
Another source says it a little more directly. “Genetic Engineering (GE) is a radical new technology that manipulates the genes and DNA — the building blocks of all living things. Unlike traditional breeding, genetic engineering creates new life forms that would never occur in nature, creating new and unpredictable health and environmental risks. To create GE crops, genes from bacteria, viruses, plants, animals and even humans have been inserted into plants like soybeans, corn, canola, and cotton.” This goes totally against God’s design for life and health.
In his book, Seeds of Deception, Exposing Industry and Government Lies About the Safety of the Genetically Engineered Foods You’re Eating, Jeffrey Smith, a former executive with the leading independent laboratory testing for GM presence in foods, documents the serious health dangers of these foods and explains how corporate influence and government collusion have been used to cover them up. Today’s article merely introduces the subject of GMO foods. There is other valuable information available on the Internet and through published books. Begin searching out the truth on what you’re really eating.
Father, we don’t walk in fear but we do want to take care of our bodies in a responsible way. Thank you for giving us wisdom to discern truth.
Blessings on you as you continue to learn more about what you’re eating and drinking.
