What Is The Connection Between Processed Foods and GMOs?
Feb. 17, 2015
I grew up on a farm and have always been a healthy eater and avoided processed foods. It's scary to find out that 90% of all grocery store foods have been contaminated with GMOs. Can you explain the connection between processed foods and GMOs? What exactly are GMOs? Healthy Eater, Georgia
Dear Healthy Eater:
GMOs are also referred to as Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs), Genetically Modified (GM) foods, Genetically Engineered (GE) foods, Genetically Altered Foods, and Frankenfoods. Basically over 90% of all grocery store foods especially processed foods (foods which have been dried, flaked, mixed, frozen, canned, boxed, bottled, packaged or prepared) are referred to as GMOs.
Scientists took the DNA of plants and the DNA of animals and mixed it with pesticides and herbicides and bacteria and fungus -- to try to create some type of “superbreed” - a plant or animal that grows faster, bigger, and stronger.
They put the pesticides and herbicides into the seeds which grows this toxic food which have no nutritional value -- so there is no way to avoid eating pesticides or herbicides which are heavy metals or neurotoxins which causes the brain to give out.
This is why there has been an explosion of brain illnesses such as autism, Alzheimers, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Parkinson’s, brain cancer, mental illness, depression, bipolar, brain fog -- along with other multiple illnesses such as food allergies; antibiotic resistant diseases and other new diseases (Morgellon’s disease, etc.); toxins; digestive issues; nutritional issues; organ damage; reproductive disorders; birth effects such as kids born with smaller brains and low birth weight; miscarriages, infertility or lower sperm counts; immune problems; diabetes; high blood pressure, high cholesterol, cancer; obesity, blindness, accelerated aging – just to name a few.
These foods have been on the U.S. market for 20 years so it should be everyone's goal to avoid processed foods while they raise their nutritional IQ by eating foods in as natural forms as possible.
