I cannot think of anything more frightening that is happening to our foods today than GMO’s! I am certainly not trying to play a trick on you. I can unequivocally tell you that genetically modified foods are no treat. We, the people of the United States, have become one large science experiment. We ALL have become human guinea pigs. Sometimes I truly think I am living in the twilight zone. Where did the country go that I grew up in? Maybe if I click my heels three times together and say, “take me back home” I will find myself back in a place where our foods have not been destroyed and our people not paying the consequences. Let me try……….”take me back home”…………”take me back home………”take me back home! Ummmm NOPE! Still here! Guess I must do the next best thing……
Here is a FACT: Over 80 percent of the foods in an average grocery store are already genetically modified. How can this be? When did this happen? So what are genetically modified foods?
Genetically modified foods are created when a scientist takes the DNA from one organism and inserts it into another organism to give it a trait it doesn’t naturally possess. Let me give you an example of something that has already been done. We all know that tomatoes are a warm weather crop. The fruit will not thrive if there is a sudden dip in temperature. Therefore, if scientists can find a way to alter the tomato’s DNA in order for it to be able to grow in colder temperatures, there will be a dramatic increase in the productivity of the tomato. Hence enter the flounder. Yes I said flounder as in the fish! The flounder is a cold weather fish that is able to withstand cold water. So the idea is to isolate and extract the gene from the flounder that enables it to withstand the cold and insert it into our common tomato. VIOLA….you now have a tomato that can withstand the cold! Now you know how FRANKENFOODS are made!
Man is genius! It’s amazing how far science and technology has come, especially within the last 100 years. However, when our food becomes one big science experiment, it’s frightening. Never before in the history of man have we ever tampered with our food like this. We are playing with nature with no idea of the consequences!! Or….maybe you should ask the bats, bees and birds! When did GMO’s start making their way into our foods, in the 1990’s! Yes you’ve been eating them for 20 years already!

It takes me one hour to explain GMO’s to my clients. Their first reaction is shock, and then it slowly dissipates to anger, which was exactly my reaction when I first realized what was going on. You cannot eat healthy in today’s world unless you know how to avoid GMO’s. This is NOT an easy thing to do. Inner Beauty Workshops will teach you the history of GMO’s, how to recognize them in foods and how to avoid them. If you want to learn more about GMO’s, please read the work of Jeffrey Smith or check out this website: http://www.responsibletechnology.org/
