When I saw this YouTube video (link above) about so called “Healthy Cereal” containing genetically modified elements my blood pressure went up…so to speak.
This is a perfect example of how the “big boys” in the corporate world think they can play with peoples lives for their corporate bonus. I am doing my utmost at avoiding GMO products and conventionally grown foods produced with chemical assistance. There is absolutely no sound evidence that GMO’s are safe for human consumption. Science has not yet proven that GMO’s are safe for the human body. If anything has come out of the research in this field GMO’s are not safe and should be avoided. Conventionally grown food is loaded with pesticides and fungicides. These chemicals are not fit for us to be eating. We are getting more food allergies, more illness in young and old. This increase in illness coincides with the use of toxins in agriculture and now the experiments going on in the labs to genetically modify our foods.
I am a Whole Foods shopper and small health food store shopper at all times. I am willing to pay a little bit more for items I know are going to nourish my body in the best way possible. It makes me so angry to know that it is all about “the money”. These so-called health product pushers are misleading the public just like the mainstream food marketers and fast food restaurants. It is maddening. When you think you are doing the right thing by eating certain foods advertised as healthy and then you come across an article like the one above it makes you realize that you have to be totally vigilant when choosing what you put on your plate.
All I can say about this is “Grrrrrrrrr”.
