“Carroty Lion,” an art entry, reminds me of Frankenfoods.
We have been eating strictly organically for three years. We made the decisive switch when we became friends with members of the Weston A. Price Foundation in 2008 and never looked back, except to pat ourselves on the back. We learned that it is hard to understand how much fast food and industrially prepared food affect your health, body and emotions until you make the switch, feeling better every day.
In addition to avoiding pesticides and added chemicals such as preservatives, we have avoided GMO, or genetically modified foods by eating strictly organic. Genetially modified foods have had their cellular structures rearranged on the molecular level. To the naked eye, they look the same, but microscopically, their chemical structures have been changed to formats that have never existed before. They are testtube designed for reasons other than health. What I am saying is they are designed with storage longevity, profit or any one of a number of other motivations, none of which include the health and fitness of animals and human beings.
An educational video on GMO foods features an interview
with Jeffrey Smith. His book is previewed below.
GMO foods are nothing short of remarkable, in that it is amazing we have the technical ability to design food on the molecular level. Being able to do something, though, does not make it right for or advantageous to everyone. While the industrial growers gain market and profit share, consumers are being physically and mentally disabled as these bits of molecularly designed foods enter the food supply. Those people who oppose eating such patented invented foods call them “Frankenfoods” with good reason. And, it is important to realize that many countries, other than the United States, do not allow the sale of GMO foods.
Here is an interesting article on the Hershey company reformulating their chocolate products so that they DO NOT contain GMO ingredients in order that they may be sold to the European markets. This is sobering as it indicates Hershey products sold in the United States DO contain GMO ingredients.
