Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)

Did you Know? Genetically engineered food is bred with the genes from bacteria that act like a pesticide?

Just finished reading an article in the East Bay Express by Jessica C. Kraft, The Rapid Growth of GMOS. The article is a definite eye opener and makes one seriously consider conspiracy theories associated with pharmaceutical, healthcare and food companies. And wouldn't you know that our good old pals the Lobbyists play a role in all this.

It's a scary thought to consider, the manipulation of the world's food supply for profit with the collateral damage being an unhealthy body in need of medical attention and genetically produced medicine to survive. Just when we're trying to Go Green in our external environment we find the food and drug administration has been approving unhealthy internal sources of energy.

Wanna know something else? It ain't limited to food; clothes, toothpaste, shampoo, lotions, you name it and there's something in it that could be hazardous to your health. Something man-made that you pay dollars for.

GMO's is a topic you want to educate yourself on, especially if you have kids suffering asthma or other child illnesses so common in today's environment. It just might not only be the chemicals in the air they breathe that's causing health problems.
