From Natural Society:
Just days after a leading genetically modified organism (GMO) researcher spoke out against GMOs and how many pro-GMO ‘scientists’ are in bed with Monsanto or carry their own GMO patents, the largest managed healthcare provider in the United States is now publicly speaking out against GMOs. In a recent newsletter, the Kaiser Permanente company discussed the numerous dangers of GMOs in a recent newsletter and how to avoid them.
Follow THIS LINK to view an online copy of the Kaiser Permanente flyer. It contains quite a number of what I consider to be very damning statements about GMO food.
I have been trying to eat more natural, wholesome food, and much much less (almost no) restaurant or packaged prepared food, opting instead for either food prepared at home or from selected places where ingredients are listed. One thing I have found, to my surprise, is how shockingly expensive it is to eat real food, not to mention it is very time consuming. It would appear that “food” costs are being held down in part with additives (pink slime, flavor enhancers, pesticides and hormones, preservatives, bio-engineering, etc) that cause the resultant “food” to be, well, something that looks like food and might even taste like food but which isn’t really food. There is a resurgence of interest in gardening here in America as people figure it out. Not to mention, there is nothing tastier than fresh vegetables. Have you never gone out to your garden and picked lunch? You’re missing something.
We should be eating things that our ancestors would recognize as food.
[it's not the wheat your grandparents knew] “It’s an 18-inch tall plant created by genetic research in the ’60s and ’70s,” he said on “CBS This Morning.” “This thing has many new features nobody told you about, such as there’s a new protein in this thing called gliadin. It’s not gluten. I’m not addressing people with gluten sensitivities and celiac disease. I’m talking about everybody else because everybody else is susceptible to the gliadin protein that is an opiate. This thing binds into the opiate receptors in your brain and in most people stimulates appetite, such that we consume 440 more calories per day, 365 days per year.”
