Why GMOs Can Never Be Safe

Great article by Dr. Mercola!

By Dr. Mercola

Monsanto and other biotech companies claim genetically modified (GM) crops have no impact on the environment and are perfectly safe to eat.

Federal departments in charge of food safety in the US and Canada have not conducted tests to affirm this alleged “safety,” but rather have taken the industry-conducted research at face value, allowing millions of acres of GM crops to overtake farmland.

These foods, largely in the form of GM corn and soy (although there are other GM crops, too, like sugar beets, papaya and crookneck squash), can now be found in the majority of processed foods in the US.

In other words, if you eat processed foods, you’re already eating them… and these crops are already being freely planted in the environment. But what if it turns out that Monsanto was wrong, and the GM crops aren’t actually safe…

This is precisely what a number of scientists have been warning of for years, and the latest to sound the alarm is Dr. Mae-Wan Ho of the Institute for Science in Society, who has concluded that, by their very nature, there is no way GMOs (genetically modified organisms) can be safe.

Monsanto Patent

Very good, short video by Jeffrey Smith explaining one important reason that Monsanto created GMO’s.  (it’s not about their myth of feeding the world…)

Almond Flour Pound Cake

This was a very easy to make recipe and absolutely delicious. I usually use lemon and not extract, but the extract really gave it a nice lemony flavor. It would be wonderful with berries and cream as well.  This recipe is a keeper, enjoy!

Ground Beef Asian Slaw – GF

Beef Asian Slaw

 

Ground Beef Asian Slaw

I’ve made this a number of times as my husband told me it’s his favorite ground beef recipe. We serve it with a mango habanero hot sauce and it’s really good. It’s a quick recipe as well and you can use any veggies, and brown rice is good on the side too, if you eat it. Not the prettiest dish, but really delicious.

Ingredients:
1 lb. grass fed ground beef

Blueberry Streusel Muffins – GF

BB muffins 2

Blueberry Streusel Muffins – GF

These really remind me of the blueberry streusel cake I used to make based on Ina Garten’s recipe. My sprouted flour version (not GF) is here:  http://momsforsafefood.net/2010/05/24/sprouted-flour-blueberry-crumb-cake/

I’m going to try these as a cake next, baking 40-50 minutes, although I like the muffins cause I only eat one at a time. J  These are based on muffins by Maria Emmerich, from one of my favorite cookbooks, Low Carbing Among Friends, Volume 2 – link below.

Monsanto’s Harvest of Fear

As Monsanto is the main supporter of the ‘no on 37′ campaign, I though it fitting to share this article about their company and their genetically engineered crops.  Please tell everyone you know if CA to vote YES on Prop 37.

Monsanto’s Harvest of Fear

Monsanto already dominates America’s food chain with its genetically modified seeds. Now it has targeted milk production. Just as frightening as the corporation’s tactics–ruthless legal battles against small farmers–is its decades-long history of toxic contamination.

Genetic Roulette Movie Review

Genetic Roulette Movie Review  -  A Must See Documentary

Jeffrey Smith just released an incredible new documentary called Genetic Roulette: The Gamble of Our Lives.  It’s narrated by Lisa Oz (daughter of Dr. Oz) and features interviews with physicians, scientists, farmers, dieticians, chefs and educators all discussing the problems with genetically engineered foods.

Americans get sick more often then Europeans and people in other industrial countries and we’re getting sicker.  Since the mid 1990’s when Genetically Modified Organisms (Genetically Engineered Foods) when our food supply was taken over, without our knowledge or our consent.  The number of Americans suffering at least three chronic illnesses nearly doubled.  Why is this taking place?

We’ve had an epidemic increase in cancer, obesity, allergies, autism, diabetes, asthma, and intestinal disorders.  These are the same conditions that animals eating genetically engineered foods develop in the lab.  It seems like we, and our children, are the guinea pigs of the biotech industry. And contrary to what ‘industry’ states, there are NO long-term safety studies.
