Did you know that 70% of the food you eat in America is Genetically Modified food.? Some of the best advance in science has come from this field. There is a strain of corn that is modified with insecticides so that less of the crops will be lost. That is great for the farmer, but is it so good for you?
It may be that these foods are completely safe to ingest. So why is it kept a secret? Why is it not listed on the labels the tell you when a food is GMO (Genetically Modified Organism). The answer is very easy. The GMO industry is afraid that if people see GMO on the label, that they will lose profit. They paid lobbyist more than a billion dollars to convince congress not to label foods that are GMO.
Honestly, large corporations, by law, must protect their stockholders first. Your health is secondary. It helps to have a billion dollars to buy what you want.
So what can you do? Write to your Congressmen, write to you local officials, write to everybody demading that we have the right to know what is in your food. In CHINA all foods that are GMO ARE LABELLED ! Also in many parts of Europe and all of Asia, foods are labelled.
These big corporations do not care about your health or how long you live. They care about their PROFITS! So don't trust them.
The best thing to do is buy from local farmers where you can ask them questions, or grow and raise your own food is even better.
Like I said before, GMO may be totally safe. Because of the way Earth's population keeps growing, we may have to depend on GMOs more and more ...But we do have the right to know and choose for ourselves.
