GMO’S, WHAT WE ALL NEED TO KNOW

 

On May 25th a March against Monsanto was organized. I marched in Ann Arbor along with over two million other people. Over 50 countries and 350 U.S. cities were marching in their towns on the same day. People are catching on to what these foods are doing to us and feel we have the right to know what is in our foods. Monsanto and other huge Bio-tech companies are trying to stop the labeling. When greed and profit are the main goal then look out for the avalanche of illnesses and death numbers to keep growing.

 

If you have not heard of GMO’s then I hope this article can educate on what they are and how to avoid eating them. GMO’s are genetically modified organisms. Genetic engineering is a radical technology that breaks down barriers between humans, animals and plants. Once released these GMO’s can spread and interbreed with other organisms and are impossible to recall back to the laboratory.

 

Foods containing GMO’s do not have to be labeled in the U.S. Monsanto’s Roundup ready corn, soy, cottonseed; canola, sugar beets, papaya, rice, potatoes and alfalfa are designed to withstand massive doses of weed killers. These crops were introduced in the 1990’s. Monsanto provides close to 90% of GMO seeds in the world. The seeds have been genetically modified to produce their own pesticide or survive repeated spraying of their toxic herbicide Roundup. And just so you know, Monsanto is the company that produced the toxins in Viet Nam that was sprayed, Agent Orange. I personally have known a veteran that died from that.

 

So in simple explanation: Monsanto has put a BT toxin into every cell of corn and other plants. When pests bite into the plants containing this poison their stomachs explode. Separate studies on rats have proven when these foods are fed to them they form huge tumors. Many of them die. So what do you think this is doing to humans and our pets? These GMO’s are also in the pet food. If you are feeding your pets food that contain corn or corn meal you can be assured these are the GMO’s. Dogs and cats are not meant to eat corn. And humans are not supposed to eat pesticides, fertilizers, GMO’s ever..

 

GMO’s are linked to toxic and allergic reactions in humans, sickness, sterility and fatalities in livestock. Also found is reproductive disorders, immune system problems, gastrointestinal problems and damage is being found in every organ studied in lab animals. Most of the diet in our livestock in the United States is Roundup Ready crops. The livestock eats nutrient-deficient crops and then we eat these sick and nutrient-deficient animals. When we eat crops that have been sprayed with Round-up we absorb the Round-up. It is dangerous in very minute concentrations. Have we not all noticed how many more people and animals are getting so many illnesses? Our health all starts with our food. Unless you are eating organic or Non-GMO foods then we are consuming these Frankenfoods. I don’t know about you but this is one of the scariest things going on in this country. And watch your fish, they are genetically engineering salmon too.

 

Monsanto’s genetically engineered bovine growth hormone, (rBGH or rBST), now owned by Eli Lilly has come under fire from Breast Cancer Action for links between eating hormone tainted animal products and higher rates of breast, colon and prostate cancer.

 

And think about this. The bee population is being affected by this heavy pesticide spraying. Commercial beekeepers in the U.S. are saying their industry is on verge of being killed off. The fruits and vegetable crops are dependent on bees for pollination. So the GMO seeds are coated in neonicotinoids using a time released program. So the seed goes into the land and is expressed into pollen that the bees collect. When they come in contact with this insecticide the bee’s either die or lose the ability to find their way back to the hive. The U.S. has a higher level of Colony Collapse Disorder compared to other countries that have lower GMO planting rates. Birds are also being killed from these toxins.

 

Monsanto is currently being sued in Idaho after farmers found GMO wheat growing in Oregon. What happens is the GMO contaminates the regular wheat fields. Farmers lose money in their wheat trade. Other lawsuits against them are going on as well. (Idaho Farmers Sue Monsanto over GMO Wheat-Yahoo News)

 

There is so much to write about on this but the bottom line is this. Read your labels; do not eat processed chemical laden foods, especially those containing corn, soy, cottonseed and canola unless certified organic. Do not eat or buy any GMO foods and tell everyone about this.

 

Watch the movie “Genetic Roulette”, The World’s Most Dangerous FOOD SCAM…EXPOSED by Jeffrey M. Smith to learn all the details. Over 2500 farmers in India have killed themselves over the seeds and their livestock dieing from being fed GMO feeds.

 

Read Voices of the FOOD Revolution by John and Ocean Robbins. Learn all you can about this and tell everyone. Do you really want to be eating these toxic GMO foods and feeding these to our kids and grandchildren? I sure as hell do not.

 

Big agribusiness has made profits more important than your health, the environment and your right to know how your food is produced. More people are chronically ill today than any other time in history of the world. We cannot depend on our government and FDA to protect us either. Michael Taylor once worked for the FDA, later represented Monsanto as a lawyer and then returned to the FDA’S Deputy Commissioner for Policy when rBGH was granted approval. At the USDA, Roger Beachy, former director of the Monsanto Danforth Center is director of the National Institute of Food and Agriculture and this goes on and on. (www.Infowars.com) This is a war against our food/health, land, water and air, let alone the poor farmers.

 

Eat Organic, clean healthy foods. That is your Health Insurance! Grow your own foods; Buy from local farmers or Community Supported Agriculture or farmers markets. The prices of organic food would greatly come down if more people would buy organic. We can all make a difference! Also let your senators, congressman and our President know we are not going to stand for this.

 

The next March is July 4th, Moms across America to label GMO’s. (www.momsacrossamerica.com , www.organicconsumers.org) Go to these websites and sign the petitions to stop GMO’s.

 

Call 212-224-3121 and the switchboard operator will connect you directly with your House Representative.

 

GMO’s have been banned by Austria, Bulgaria, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Japan, Luxemburg, Maderia, South Australia, Switzerland, Peru, France and Russia, why not USA?

I got such a Response with the first GMO story I had to do a follow up:

 

OMG THE RESPONSE ON GMO’S

 

This is a follow up to my GMO story from July’s issue. I received quite a few responses so would like to address some of them. One of the people who contacted me was Aramenda B. Perry from Brighton. She is the “NO GMO for Michigan” Brighton Chapter Leader. She asked me to march with them in the Brighton 4th of July Parade in association with the national MAAM, (Mothers Across America March).

 

I was honored to march again. MAAM’s intentions are to raise awareness and support moms to eat FREE GMO foods and demand labeling everywhere. Mom’s usually buy 85% of the foods their families eat.

 

There are over 60 other countries that have either labeled GMO’s or banned them. Many of the major food companies, Kellogg’s, Kraft and General Mills make GMO free foods for those countries so why not for the U.S.A?

 

After the paper came out in July my first response was a phone message from a gentleman. He stated he thought I had wrote the article as factual without any facts or studies. He thought it was written how I feel. He said I may want to follow it up with more research. My reply to him is thanks for the feedback. Always nice to hear people are reading The Courant. I believe everything I wrote is factual. If I did not believe that with my whole heart and soul I would not write it. Some information was taken from Voices of the Food Revolution by John and Ocean Robbins. (John Robbins is the son of Irvine Robbins, Baskin and Robbins ice cream company. John walked away from a frozen, sugar-laden butterfat fortune to lead a cause of healthy, sustainable, humane and delicious food. He inspired millions when he published his bestseller, “Diet for a New America” in 1987. I also took information from their website, www.foodrevolution.org. John is a leading authority and has been speaking out on this for some 30 years.

 

I also get my information from www.mercola.com, www.organicconsumers.org , www.jamieoliver.com, and from “Genetic Roulette, The Gamble of Our Lives, The World’s Most Dangerous FOOD SCAM…Exposed”, a movie by Jeffrey M. Smith. It reveals how genetically engineered foods harm you and your family. All anyone has to do is visit those sites, read the book and especially watch the movie to KNOW the truth!

 

Healthcare is such a big business in this country now. On every corner there is a pharmacy. So many people are sick than ever before and it is the norm to be on “meds”. A few years ago I was sitting with some women talking and was asked what med’s I was on. None I told her, like that is just the norm.

 

Most of the meats people are eating are being raised on factory farms and those animals are fed GMO crops. Gene Baur, president and co-founder of Farm Sanctuary has been raising awareness about the abuses of industrialized factory farming for more than 25 years and has his master’s degree in agricultural economics from Cornell University. “Farm Sanctuary” is an international best seller. Farm Sanctuary is a leading farm animal protection organization in the U.S.

 

Gene has visited hundreds of farms, stock yards and slaughter houses. Gene states, “Most people would be appalled by the conditions going on in these factory farms. Farm animals are locked in warehouses by the thousands. They are packed in cages so tight they cannot even turn around.” Most of his work is letting people become aware of this and to let people make food choices that align with their own values. Most people do not want to know where their food comes from. This is mind boggling to me. There are laws against cruelty to animals in the U.S. but not for the poor farm animals raised for consumption. How can we stop this? Do not buy animal products that come from factory farms. (Voices of the Food Revolution, chapter 10)

 

There are plenty of places to buy organic meats if you must eat meat. Local farmers can supply a whole cow or pig or you can split it with another family. Many stores carry organic meats. I go to Shipshewana, Indiana and purchase my meats sometimes. I know they are not raised with hormones and fed antibiotics and the animals are not being raised inside, in fear and treated cruel. And the prices are great. Rainbows End Farm in Fowlerville raises organic fed pastured chickens and lambs, some beef too. U- pick raspberries and vegetables will be ready in August and September on farm as well. (www.therainbowsendfarm.com) Go to www.localharvest.org for other farms in area.

 

Trader Joe’s in Ann Arbor carries healthier choices. They do not allow any GMO ingredients in their private labeled products. (www.traderjoe.com)

 

I also want to thank 80 year old Alice who called me to thank me for writing the article. She said she threw out some of the GMO foods she had in her pantry. She told her granddaughter and she got rid of a bunch of that Frankenfood too.

 

Thanks to Tiffany who called me too. She wanted to post my article on Facebook. She wanted to share it and she emailed it to 50 people.

 

When we marched on the 4th people were very receptive and were asking for the hand outs we were passing out listing the GMO ingredients. GMO refers to a living organism whose genes have been altered by inserting a gene from an unrelated species. In crops, the technology has generally been used to incorporate genes that enhance resistance to insecticides, herbicides and pesticides. Then Monsanto can sell more of those POISONS to spray on the crops. It is important to stress that Genetic Engineering is different from traditional breeding, grafting and hybridizing that growers have been doing for centuries.

 

We eat GMO’s everyday! Since the 90’s, 80% of all processed foods have been made with GMO’s. No one told us because they do not have too. This makes me very mad and I can do two things. 1. Spread the word. 2. Do not buy the poison foods. (www.NoGMO4Michigan.org)

 

To the lady who emailed me and said my article was masked as a fact based article and thought I did not know about the The Monsanto Protection Act Signed by President Obama: Yes I did know about that, do not agree with it and am very disappointed in the President!

 

A class action lawsuit was filed on on June 6th 2013 on behalf of Pacific Northwest wheat farmers and Center of Food Safety (CFS), after Oregon wheat farmers suffered loss in their wheat prices after finding illegal genetically engineered glyphosate-resistant wheat plants.

 

CFS is a national non-profit membership organization to protect human health and the environment by curbing the use of harmful food production technologies and by promoting organic and other forms of sustainable agriculture. (www.centerforfoodsafety.org) And the Monsanto Protection Act may soon be repealed thanks to activism! (www.nationofchange.org)

 

The bottom line for me is this: I don’t like that we were uninformed about these GMO’s and that they are even allowed in this country, let alone not being labeled. I feel the information I shared is the “Truth”! I believe everyone is responsible for their health and actions. Do we believe everything we read? No! So you do not have to believe this article, it is your choice. Do your own research or not. It is up to you.

 

Do you really think we should be eating this and it is NOT having an effect on our health? As I understand from my research there has been no long-term testing for human or animal health risks. I have seen pictures of the mice it has been tested on and the pictures are disturbing. It does not take a rocket scientist or degree to see how unhealthy our people in this country are. Genetically Engineered “Pesticide” Toxin Now Found in Human Blood, www.mercola.com

 

Yes organic is more money. So pay more for your food now or pay more for your health later. Everyone can choose to eat better/healthier. Start by changing one thing, then another.

 

Thanks to all the people who wrote and called in and special thanks to Editor Gary Wellings for letting me write about this.

SMART METERS

 

Smart meters are wireless, digital meters that transmit electricity and gas use to DTE using radio-frequency communication. These meters send pulses of wireless and dirty electricity through all the wiring of your house between 10,000 and 150,000 times per day. You can be affected by these meters up to two miles away. The whole body cumulative radiation exposure from these wireless meters is 100 times more than cell phone exposure. These meters can hurt the elderly, kids, animals, plants and insects.

 

Insomnia, headaches, anxiety, attention and memory problems, heart palpitations and ringing in the ear are some of the health issues people immediately notice when they are exposed to these meters. The electromagnetic radiation emitted from these meters can affect conditions such as pacemaker’s, cancer, seizure disorders, metal implants and cochlear implants.

 

A first step to prevent one being installed is to buy a shackle lock, (local hardware stores sell them or on line). They are extremely hard to cut. If DTE cuts your lock you can pursue legal action for destroying your property. Document everything and take pictures. In late October 2013 DTE installers have been authorized to cut locks. Opt-out meters are not the solution either so don’t be fooled.

 

The Smart Meter Education Network, (SMEN) is a group of citizens who have come together to educate the community and work for legislation and take legal action that will protect all citizens. According to SMEN the meters will raise your electric rates and collect data you would want to be kept private. You can email them to be added to their newsletter, smartmetereducationnetwork@gmail.com and get specific step by step instructions on how to keep your analog meter. You may call them too, 734-972-2677. They want us to keep them informed on this issue.

 

Past President of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine, (AAEM), Doctor Amy Dean, an Ann Arbor physician believes everyone should have a choice to keep their analog meters. You can read the AAEM’s position statement at www.aaemonline.org

 

Many Michigan Municipalities have passed resolutions against these harmful meters. Go to your township and ask them to do the same. We must stand together on this issue as communities. Contact your State Representatives for support. Other informational sites are www.SmartMeterUpdate.com and www.MichiganStopSmartmeters.com
