Do you remember signing up and giving your authority to take part in the grand EMF experiment? No, neither do I but, like you, I still get to endure living with 100 million times more radiation than my grandparents.
There is another experiment that we didn’t sign up for – test consumers for Genetically modified foods (GMO, Frankenfoods..).
Depending where you live you are very likely to be including GMOs in your diet without even knowing it. That’s ok, surely these have been fully tested as being safe for consumption, right? Wrong!
In one of the most recent studies done in France they discovered that Monsanto’s GMO corn-fed rats all developed tumors, experienced organ damage and had a shorter life-span as a result of their diet. One consequence of this is that the Russians have banned the importation of Monsanto’s GMO corn. Seems like a smart move to me!
Unfortunately other governments aren’t so keen to protect their populace from potentially cancerous and otherwise harmful food ingredients. So this leaves it up to us informed consumers – right? Wrong! Well, wrong in that we are not being informed as to what GMOs are in our food.
Again, depending where you live, there may not be any law in place for mandatory labeling of GMO ingredients. In the States, even buying from Whole Foods doesn’t protect you from hidden GMOs. See this expose on Youtube:
The good news is that it looks like Proposition 37, the GMO labeling bill that’s on the ballot in California, is going to go through (as I write on 1st October 2012).It is polling 2-to-1 in favor of passing and the LA Times is now reporting that 61% of registered voters currently support GMO labeling, and only 25% oppose it.
In my opinion the days of GMO on this planet are numbered. Farmers, scientists and consumers are all coming to the same conclusion that GMOs do not work on any level. At least if our food is labeled we can make our own choice to opt out of this experiment.
As far as the EMF experiment goes there seems to be no end in sight for us unwilling guinea pigs. I can only recommend either acquiring a wilderness cabin or getting yourself some protection.
Wishing you a Low EMF and GMO-free day.
