The other day my daughter requested tomato soup for dinner, making me so happy because I’ve been making a conscious effort to eat healthier and I see it’s influencing her too. We’ve been loving shopping the farmers’ markets and eating the delicious, locally grown, organic produce. Last trip we got blood oranges, turnips and beets … and we’ve been feeling so good and healthy eating this nutritious natural food.
With so much natural abundance, I wonder why GMO foods are even in existence. Most of us know that GMO stands for genetically modified organisms. (Un)Certain people have decided to change the natural makeup of food because it extends the shelf life of the food and also makes it resistant to certain bugs that eat the food (thus allowing these people to mass produce food and make more money). This perversion of nature’s perfect creations distorts the perfect natural order, producing seeds that are sterile and causing our internal organs to shrink and we’ll see what else if we don’t stop it now.
When we realize that we are what we eat, we should know what we are eating. When people inject foreign substances into foods and change nature’s recipe for vegetables and fruits, they are messing with mother nature. They are robbing us of the life force and pure natural energy we are supposed to get from eating natural, healthy food.
And they don’t want us to know.
“People wouldn’t understand,” is the stated reason for GMO manufacturers not telling us which foods they have genetically modified. The bulk of the food sold at grocery stores has been genetically modified in some way. Since the manufacturers won’t label their products they modify, I was so thrilled to read on the tomato soup cans, “No GMOS – No Bioengineered ingredients” and “Made with no genetically engineered ingredients.”
Foods labeled organic are also free of GMO ingredients. So, buying products that label proactively like this will encourage more companies to do this and sends a message that we want natural foods. Spending our money is one way we vote. It’s a natural choice. Buy local, organic and say no to GMO … and tell your family and friends too. We are powerful and our power multiplies as we unite.
We CAN do it!
