Genetically Modofied Foods (GMO), are good or bad?
Do you want to eat GMO food or do you want to eat non GMO food and organic food?
Is GMO food bad for your health or is non GMO's natural food better for your health?
Should all our food be labeled GMO, non GMO's and/or organic?
I am starting a homestead so I can grow my own food so I will know where it comes from. I know many people cannot do that so, in my opinion, I would say go to your local farmers markets or find a local farmer and ask if you can but eggs and produce from him. If you can ask him on how to grow things in a container and put it on your back porch.
LOL. Apparently you did not understand my comment. I said that this was my OPINION. Nowhere did I indicate whether I believed whether my OPINION is true or not. FYI OPINIONS are not necessarily based on truth.
I would agree with those who have already said: to avoid GMO Food and in fact all Big Corporate Food such sa McDonalds, Burger King, KFC, etc. yuks :( Eat Fresh food sourced from your Local Farmers always. Better for you. Better for your Community. Better for Environment,ent since you do not need to burn Ton of Fossil Fuel shopping Food from God Forsaken Food processing Factories to you.
Major Wall Street based companies like Monsanto are altering our lives by altering our food supplies which affect our DNA. Monsanto and its Genetically Modified Foods (GMO), are capable of creating all sort of bad side effects which we cannot even imagine now. Monsanto is really the Monster maker, but since they are backed will Billions of Wall Street Money, and an Army of Lawyers, then can get away with mass poisoning of US with their GMO (Monster) Food.
So if you want to live a long and healthy life, avoid GMO, and instead eat Organic.
You are absolutely right jessica_sol. God have mercy on us as most foods we buy in stores are GMO. God's way is best just simple food we can grow and raise ourselves! But who now days does that, I would say not many.
No Den my friend, we do not need: "to have God have mercy on us". We just need to avoid Wall Street based Food altogether, that is say:
NO 2 McDonald
NO 2 Pizza Hut
NO 2 Chipotte
NO 2 Big grocery Chains
And instead buy your food from your local Farmers Market, which is where I buy my Food every Saturday Morning and Tue Morning, which is our local Farmers Markets. Also eat at non-Wall Street based Restaurants in your City whom buy their ingredients from local Farmers Markets.
In fact for the Healthiest body and mind, avoid ALL Wall Street based everything, from Foods listed above, to WalMart, to Gap, to Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc. I know that is not going to be always possible, since Wall Street based companies have access to 100s of Billions of Dollars so they will always out market and out muscle other sources. But we need to do our best. That is why I thank God for having this Anoox which is a not-for-profit not Wall Street based Search Social Network.
I just saw on TV today that a Farmer's Market is charging farmers $100.00 for membership and $50.00 to rent stalls before they can sell their produce to us. This is outrageous. The government should be providing this space free of charge to the farmers. They have to sell a lot of food even before they can start earning a profit and will have to raise their prices higher! It is just another way that government is taking us for a ride! It is almost impossible to avoid big business. God Bless you.
While it will be nice if Government provided space free of charge to farmers, that is not as important as the Government educating People that they are far better buying their Foods from local Farmers rather than Monsters such as Monsanto and other Big Wall Street Food makers such as McDonalds, etc. But of course problem is that Big Wall Street firms, whether Food processing or Health insurance or Banks, etc. control our Government via their control of Wall Street (right-wing) Media.
Yes the government should encourage people to buy their food from the farmer, but that will never happen because the govrnment is in with Monsanto and all the big food companies, and Wall Street where the big money is.
DEN14, yes exactly. That is where the problem lays. That is the Wall Street Billionaire Class has total strangle hold of our Government, via their control of the Wall Street Media, of course, which is where 99% of Americans (unfortunately) get their information from. But there is hope that things can really change, if more and more of Americans start getting their information via non-Wall Street backed Social Media such as this Anoox. Although I agree that is a slim chance.
And jessica_sol this is not jut a problem in the United States but it is worldwide now. Monsanto and other big corporations are worldwide making and selling GMO foods and spraying poisons on the food crops like roundup.
Facts: When altering our food supply without enough long term studies we don't know what the side effects are. From being in the food service industry for over thirty years. My personal opinion is I don't like GMO foods.
Also, several foreign countries have banned all GMO foods from this country.
Now you have to be careful with total organic foods. They say the very young and the very old should not eat all organic foods.
Read every label.
Eat foods in moderation
Eat the basic four food groups
Stay away from processed food. Cook your meals from scratch
Control your salt
Yes I believe all GMO foods should be labeled
Remember this question cannot be answered in a short post.
Read, their is plenty of data on the internet pro/con
That's why I stated to be a very personal decision (I do not advocate for GM foods as I would not eat them) but I wouldn't suggest someone to think this or that way ...So I am not disagreeing with you that GM foods may be bad But they may be not bad .
Avoid genetically modified food because it is not natural, it is artificial and all artificial foods harm us on the long run. Eat natural organic food because it is healthy. All foods should be labelled if it is CMO or not or organic.
Genetically modified foods or GM foods, also genetically engineered foods, are foods produced from organisms that have had changes introduced into their DNA using the methods of genetic engineering. Genetic engineering techniques allow for the introduction of new traits as well as greater control over traits than previous methods such as selective breeding and mutation breeding.
There is a scientific consensus that currently available food derived from GM crops poses no greater risk.
No scientists have proof now that current food from GMO pesticides incorporated into them are harming our physical health and causing cancer and new diseases. The best way to eat for good health is Non-GMO's and natural and organic foods.
Because people need to know about GMO foods rcandeias, and most GNO foods are full of pesticides on them and also in them as the big companies that make them are trying to making some GMO's foods pest resistant. We are being slowly poisoned by GMO's every day that we eat them leading to sickness and finally death. All need to know the true facts about this.
rcandeias I read your article above. GMO food are bad for our health and countries are starting to ban them> The big food processing companies are pushing hard for no GNO labeling and are fighting in congress to stop any kind of labeling. Scientists have found out that many modern diseases we have are caused by these GMO foods we are eating.
