What you eat every day is a direct reflection of your health, how you look, your mental cognition, the ability of fertility, and how you feel and whether or not you’ll be struck with infertility, autoimmune diseases and a host of other diseases that we are just beginning to understand from eating meat or dairy that is tainted from toxic GM products.
However, if you do eat meat and source your it from pastured raised and grass-fed animals, you’re not only buying the meat without the animal who ate the GMO (genetically modified organisms) corn or soy, but you’re also reaping a myriad of health and ecological benefits.
How to avoid eating GMOs in meat you eat
When you think about the food you buy and eat from a commercial grocery store, much of that food, particularly on the inner aisles, have been so processed and contain so many toxic additives including GMOs that it may be shocking, but even more shocking is the foods that are made from GMOs are the worst kinds of foods you can put into your body, as a plethora of scientific research have discovered.
A good rule of thumb: if the ingredient list on the package contains corn, soy, soybean oil, canola, high fructose corn syrup which are genetically modified and in almost every kind of processed food these days, along with a laundry list of other ingredients (chemical preservatives and artificial colors), which can be genetically modified as well and should be avoided it at all cost. They play a devastating impact on the health not only of humans and animals but our ecosystem and other sustainable resources like farms as well.
If you’re armed with this kind of information and know-how your food is grown and raised by reading product labels that state they’re “organic”, “pasture-raised”, “grass-fed” or has the Non-GMO Verified logo on it, then it gives you an informed buying decision that can help sustain a healthy lifestyle.
You now have a way to arm yourself in this endeavor with an app called Buycott which will do just that.
Let’s look at the real cost of eating unsustainable food
The outbreak of salmonella and e.coli and other pathogenic organisms that come from unsustainable farming has been directly responsible for killing thousands of people each year.
The CDC estimates that each year roughly 1 in 6 Americans (or 48 million people) gets sick, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 dies of foodborne diseases. [source]
Industrial farming is the worst kind of farming practices that one can think of. Industrial farmers have no respect for the land, have no respect for the animals that are giving their lives to feed the people who buy and eat their food, and the slaughterhouses are a breeding ground for pathogens that remain in the meat or dairy and then is sold to unsuspecting customers.
Do you know if the Greek yogurt, butter or cheese or any kind of meat you just bought was raised from grain-fed feedstock? If you answered no you’re not alone. The FDA does not require industrial farms and food producers to disclose this fact, though 90% of them feed their animals GM feed such as corn and soy.
What do you think happens when an animal eats something that has been confirmed to lead to infertility to cancer to autoimmune diseases and a host of other ailments that haven’t yet been discovered that could potentially be the cause of many of the diseases that happened to skyrocket for the last three decades.
Creators of GMOs trying to silence research
The year-long study from researcher Dr. Seralini has been wrongly criticized when he submitted his research findings to medical journals that proved GM food was directly connected to cancer, tumors, and other disorders in the animals that were tested.
His study and the results were the first ever to show causation of GMO’s causing disease, and because of this, a smear campaign was launched to discredit him and his work, and through this vicious attack against him, his research paper was redacted from the medical journal.
That campaign was swift and carried out by the Grocery Manufacturers of America, Monsanto and other chemical giants who wanted to stop having this information shown to the public for fear of repercussions.
However, in 2016, the Seralini paper was resubmitted and is now included in a credible peer-review medical journal that exposes and supports exactly the grave danger that genetically modified organisms cause on the health of animals.
We must ask ourselves this question: if this is happening in animals, what do you think GMO’s are doing to us?
When an animal eats a GMO product it passes through the digestive tract and leaving in its blood, meat, bone marrow and every other part of its body which contains sequences of unnatural DNA that GMOs are made from and is now a part of the DNA of the animal.
The old adage, “You are what you eat” plays a big part in our overall health. But let’s go a step further. You are what you eat, digest, assimilate, and utilize. It’s really important because you actually have to break down the food and assimilated, and absorbent through your microvilli so your body can use it.
As science has confirmed, what we eat is not only correlated but can cause a host of ailments and disease in the human body if foods are consumed of poor quality or have toxic chemicals and preservatives in them. Given these results, would that mean that we have GMOs and the chemicals used to grow them such as glyphosate circulating within us as well? To put it succinctly, yes! [source]
What does the FDA say about all of this?
The Food and Drug Administration says when cows eat GMO feed it doesn’t make the milk GMO because the milk itself is not genetically engineered.
To put that into perspective, the Food and Drug Administration doesn’t require any GMO labeling and because they are receiving millions of dollars from the meat and dairy industry, they don’t test the milk or meat or dairy if it has any DNA sequences that are similar to the GMO feed that the animal ate.
If anyone who may know of the FDA’s stance on GMO labeling, which isn’t concerned in the least about GMOs because of the revolving door between them and Monsanto, the creators of genetically modified organisms. That revolving door translates to political favors for friends within the agency and lobbying efforts (bribes) from Monsanto and other companies that don’t want GMO’s labeled.
They don’t want to be on the hook and accountable and liable for the damaging effects of GMOs because of disease and infertility they’ve caused to animals, and potentially humans, as well as the destruction of the microorganisms on all industrial farmland. The latter plays a crucial role in the health of the soil and a necessary component in the health of livestock.
Unlike 60+ other countries that require GMOs to be labeled, the U.S. has no such labeling requirements.
The only way to insure yourself and your family are eating a GMO-free diet is if you’re consuming fruits and vegetables grown organically, and meat from cows, goats, chickens or hogs that are pasture-raised and grass-fed.
