How GMOs Quietly Became a Staple In Our Society By the Corporate Food Industry

Published

on

Genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) have undoubtedly become one of the most controversial food and environmental subjects to date. Food companies fight GMO labeling, various food chains and brands have chosen to cease including GMO ingredients on their menus and in their products, health advocates continue to push for GMOs being banned altogether, and yet, lurking in the background is the Big Food and industrial corporations quietly making large profits at the expense of our health while the fight continues to unfold.

There remain so many unknowns about GMOs that have people concerned, including the long-term health effects of ingesting them and the harm the plants and farming methods have on the environment. And while numerous studies reveal that GMOs can, indeed, be harmful to human health, for instance, eloquent statements assure people they are okay.

“Plants and crops with GM traits have been tested more than any other crops—with no credible evidence of harm to humans or animals,” a statement on the Monsanto website proclaims. And then there are, of course, industry-funded studies that tell us GMOs are safe, beating out the studies that truly matter, for a fear of loss of valuable profit.

Under our very noses, we are being duped; another well-planned con job that throws human and environmental health by the wayside for a pretty penny. And no matter the argument on either side, one thing seems impossible to ignore: there is a huge lack of official safety testing on GMOs. Yet, the evidence presented thus far acknowledges that transferring genes from one life form to another may have detrimental and unintended biological consequences.

But how did this all begin? And why did it remain so quiet until, suddenly, it was so in our faces we chose to fight over it? If we take a step back and review the history, you’ll realize how the con unfolded.

Understanding Glyphosate

Genetic modification is meant to make crops “Roundup Ready,” in which  they are able to withstand being smothered in Monsanto’s Roundup, which is the biggest herbicide in the world. The main ingredient in Roundup, glyphosate, was announced to be a likely cause of cancer in 2015 by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC).

And because no one even tried to monitor amounts of it in foods until this year, with the FDA announcing plans to follow through with testing, glyphosate is everywhere these days.

It all comes down to money, as there were always methods to detect glyphosate, but the FDA wanted to wait around for less expensive options. Yikes.

The Politics of GMOs

To ensure the concerns of GMOs slipped through the cracks, inside help was needed, and no less, from the people whose job it was to keep some corruption from occurring.

It began with a U.S. Supreme Court permitting certain life forms to be private property back in 1980. The high court ruled in favour of allowing scientist Ananda Chakrabarty to own the intellectual property right to a GE oil-eating bacterium. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office had previously denied the property rights, claiming  that living things “are not patentable subject matter.” But the court’s permission soon followed, under the grounds that GE organism were  “manufactured” and so could be covered by patent law.

And as for the FDA official we can thank for that? It was Michael Taylor, a former attorney for the Monsanto Corp of St. Louis.

And then there’s the instance of then-Vice President George H. W. Bush in 1987 telling a Monsanto lab, who was concerned about the approval process for their new crops, laughing off their worries. “Call me. We’re in the dereg business. Maybe we can help,” he told the Monsanto executives.

Five years later, as the president of the United States, Bush assigned Dan Quayle to retrieve a “regulatory relief initiative” for GMO crops underway. Quayle harped on biotech’s ability to procure profit, and urged for the resistance of unnecessary regulations. Taylor was then appointed by the administration, and so no safety testing or special labeling was required. Even more disturbing? Taylor later became the VP of Monsanto.

And so, the ways in which Monsanto worked their way into politics, taking over our supermarket shelves, seemed immediate.

In fact, by 1993, Rufus Yerxa, Monsanto’s Chief Counsel, was nominated as U.S. deputy to the World Trade Organization. By 1996, Michael Kantor, who was on Monsanto’s Board of Directors, garnered the roll of U.S. Secretary of Commerce. In 2000, it was Carol Tucker Foreman, a lobbyist for Monsanto, who was given the “Consumer Advocate” roll on the international committee assessing genetically modified foods. In 2001, Anne Veneman, who was on the Board of Directors of one of Monsanto’s biotech subsidiary called Calgene, became the head of USDA, and held the power of regulating genetically modified organisms. Also in 2001, Donald Rumsfeld, who was the CEO of Searle pharmaceutical corporation owned by Monsanto, became the Secretary of Defense, while Linda Fisher, the former VP of Government Affairs for Monsanto, was appointed as Deputy Administrator of Environmental Protection Agency. By 2002, George Poste, who was Monsanto’s animal specialist, became the head of the bioterrorism division of Homeland Security. Then in 2008, Obama appointed Taylor as Deputy Commissioner of FDA. Obama also appointed Roger Beachy, the former director at Monsanto, as head of USDA and gave Tom Vilsack, who was the creator of Governors’ Biotechnology Partnership, the commissioner of USDA position.

GMO Labeling

And so we have reached an inevitable crossroads, with power in the wrong people’s hands, but plenty of health activists and well-informed people to fight for what’s right. With 80 percent of processed foods now containing GMOs, the public has refused to buy into the brainwashing antics of this industry.

And so, the labeling of GMOs has been demanded. By July 2016, under Vermont law, such labeling became required, but was then replaced by a bipartisan bill passed by Congress and signed by President Obama requiring GMO labeling only on Smartphone apps, as opposed to on actual labels.

Nevertheless, pressure from the public has worked, causing mainstream food companies like General Mills to begin labeling products containing GMOs.

But still, efforts continue to promote GMOs as safe and effective, like a report released in May 2016 by the National Academy of Sciences saying there was “no evidence” that GMOs were unsafe to eat, nor did they offer adverse environmental impacts, and therefore should not need to be labeled. Why would they do this one might ask? The Academy’s research department, the National Research Council (NRC), is well-connected to the GMO industry.

What we’ve seen is the firm grasp Monsanto and its biotech allies have on our food thanks to its powerful resources and intimidation techniques used to buy or pressure scientists, sway farmers, and partner up with lawmakers.

George Orwell once said: “until people become conscious, they never rebel and until after they have rebelled, they cannot become conscious.” While the criminal elite may be working to control the masses, they cannot take away our thoughts. The more informed we become, the harder it will be for their fancy words to win us over.

10 Things That Happen To Your Body When You Walk Everyday

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    There are multiple health benefits to be gained by taking a simple walk every day. These benefits are measurable, and if you don't already have an active lifestyle it can be a great way to assist you with your health.

  • Reflect On:

    Reflect on how the human race has become extremely sedentary, and how disease rates continue to climb as a result of the modern human lifestyle.

The human experience has become extremely sedentary, the average human lifestyle in the western world has been linked to multiple diseases and is one of the main causes of why disease rates continue to climb, among many other factors that surround all aspects of human life, like big food, for example. With technology in place and jobs that require tremendous amounts of sitting, there is no doubt that it’s having a detrimental effect on our lives.

That being said, the world is clearly becoming way more health conscious. It’s like we needed this experience of unhealthy food, the corporate take-over of everything, and our motionless lifestyle to knock us out of it. We are seeing a health revolution take place, where more and more people are becoming health conscious, and are always being encouraged to be more active.

Ultimately, we can’t really blame the human experience for our lack of movement, it’s something that all of us have the time to incorporate into our lives in one way or another, and if you’re someone who doesn’t enjoy being too active, a simple walk every day can have tremendous amounts of benefits. As pointed out in the video below, by Bright Side.

If You Want To Increase The Benefits Even More, Walk Barefoot

It’s called grounding, or ‘earthing’ and it involves placing your feet directly on the ground, without shoes or socks as a barrier. Why? Because there is an intense negative charge carried by the Earth, it’s electron-rich, which serves as a good supply of antioxidants and free radical destroying electrons.

A study published in the Journal of Environmental and Public Health titled “Earthing: Health Implications of Reconnecting the Human Body to the Earth’s Surface Electrons” postulates that earthing could represent a potential treatment for a variety of chronic degenerative diseases.

That’s right, many positive health benefits occur as a result of walking barefoot, and these are measurable.

Nature Valley Ad Shows The Down Side Of Children Addicted To Technology

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Technology has impacted most of our lives in a really big way. We use it daily for everything we do pretty much. Kids today, unlike previous generations, use technology more than ever and spend much less time in nature.

  • Reflect On:

    How much is too much technology for young and developing minds? Is it time to reevaluate our children's relationship with technology and get them back into nature?

Technology has become a staple in most of our lives, really, could you imagine life without it? In the video posted below, Nature Valley asks 3 generations what it was that they did for fun as a kid, the answers from the youngest generation may or may not surprise you, but is it time to cut back on the technology and bring kids back to nature?

Technology is not bad per se, that isn’t the discussion here. This is about how we use it.

Before technology, children would look to nature for entertainment. They would play outside on the lawn, go sledding, build forts, and use their imagination to create their own entertainment. Nowadays it’s all too easy for kids to get sucked into technology, there are video games, tablets, computers, cell phones and television, all of which provide a type of escape from the real world. Although, there are many ways that technology is and has been used for good in the world, is the disconnect that it is causing children and adults to part from nature causing more harm?

With the rise of mental disorders and illnesses, is it possible that the answer to these issues is simply to get kids back into nature, more time with self, using their brains to build things, be creative and connect to the energy from the Earth? We already know how effective a simple walk or hike in nature is and how they both can literally change our brains. Nature appears to be much more important than we generally give it credit for.

In my own experience, disconnecting from technology and going camping on my own proved to be a very cathartic and healing experience for me. I’ve come to realize that although being immersed in nature regularly does have a lot of benefits, but even just making time for it at all can cause a positive impact. For many of us who live in cities, with the constant bombardment of noise and of course EMF frequencies etc., just disconnecting for a short period can make a huge difference.

The following video is a brilliant ad from Nature Valley, check it out.

It’s easy to get emotional watching something like this as it shows just how far removed the newer generations are from what has been most natural to children for centuries, simply playing in nature. The children are essentially self-proclaimed tech addicts and get their entertainment by playing video games, watching videos or tv shows, texting etc. Is it time to go back to the basics and start evaluating how detrimental too much technology can be on young and developing brains? You can read more about this issue here, Is Your Child Struggling From Nature-Deficit Disorder?

Is it up to the parents to ensure they are setting proper boundaries with the amount of time their children are allowed to use technology? Or is this the future and something we should simply let happen as a natural part of evolution?

6 Proven Ways to Cleanse Your Liver & Release Pent Up Anger

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    In Chinese Medicine our liver is directly connected to anger and unfortunately, we live in a world where our liver is regularly taxed by toxic chemicals. Thankfully there is plenty that you can do without medication to keep this vital organ healthy!

  • Reflect On:

    What toxins are you regularly exposed to and what steps are you currently taking to combat them?

A toxic liver can lead to anger. In Chinese medicine, our biggest detox organ – our liver – is the organ connected to anger. When we work at changing our lifestyles and daily habits, we begin to see it having a positive effect on our mood as well as general health.

When toxicity mounts we have a more difficult time controlling or letting go of our angry feelings. Toxic chemicals accumulate in our bodies because we live in a toxic world. We microwave in plastic, we cook food in Tephlon coated pans, we smoke, we take medication, and eat fried and processed foods.

These food-like products contain toxic chemical preservatives, glyphosate; GMOs and pesticides. Ingesting poison daily results in everything from immune deficiency, mood disorders, lowered mental performance, and even life-threatening cancer.

So, besides avoiding many of the contributors of liver toxicity – what can we do?

1. Eat less added sugar & address possible yeast overgrowth in the gut

Yeast can cause fermentation of food in place of digestion and cause bloating and gas. It can contribute to “leaky gut syndrome” – thus in turn can lead to the production of toxins that may affect the brain and nervous system. Yeast overgrowth can produce alcohol as its byproduct, acetaldehyde, giving us a “hangover” feeling. It can also lead to liver damage, and it prevents the proper detoxification of other pollutants, increasing the toxicity of other toxins.

2. Support the liver with botanicals

Plant medicine like Milk Thistle and Dandelion Root can help cleanse the liver. Both extracts are known to be pretty safe and well tolerated, and toxic or adverse effects observed in the reviewed clinical trials seem to be minimal. Only those with a ragweed, iodine or latex allergy should be cautious with dandelion. (Learn more about milk thistle)

3. Drink organic aloe vera juice

High quality; raw organic aloe vera can be a phenomenal digestive aid. It seals the gut wall, aids in digestion, has anti-inflammatory properties, helps the immune system, and detoxifies the liver, skin, and colon.

4. Cook with more turmeric & black pepper to help the body absorb nutrients better

Black pepper contains a compound called piperine, which increases the bioavailability of food by decreasing activity in the intestinal tract and inhibiting the metabolism of certain enzymes. Better still, cook with lots of turmeric and black pepper together. The combination helps the body absorb more curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric.

This ingredient can heal gut wall permeability due to its amazing anti-inflammatory properties. It also aids in digestion, strengthens the immune system, improves asthma, heals wounds, prevents the progression of memory loss, controls diabetes, improves liver function, lowers cholesterol, and fights cancer. (Note: A great supplement for this that I recommend for is Liver Health)

5. Incorporate liver cleansing foods into your diet

Incorporate liver cleansing foods such as green leafy veggies, avocados, apples, garlic, olive oil, citrus fruit, beets, and cruciferous vegetables into your weekly diet.

6. See An Acupuncturist

Used for thousands of years, acupuncture has been used to detox and balance the liver meridians to reduce anger and other emotional and psychiatric issues.  Simple needless acupressure is often used on children.
