Another reason to eat organic

There is a very good multipart article about GMOs on Celsias, which I strongly advise you to read. It explains very well what GMOs are and why you should be afraid of them. I’ve been freaking about it, since I’ll be visiting the US myself pretty soon.

For my part, there ain’t no way I’m eating that shit. Which, here in Europe is no problem because of mandatory labeling. Now, for those of you who live in the US, that’s not exactly so.Your government decided that you have no right to refuse to eat GMOs, even if you wish to do so.

Since 1/2 of all soy, and 1/3 of all corn in the US is genetically modified, and those two are in everything, you can bet your treehugging ass you’re eating it, whether you like it or not.

So, if I were you, I would stick to organic cereal, organic tofu, and if you must eat processed food, stick to the organic versions. Because the organic standard is the only guarantee you have today that you are not eating GMOs.

And keep in mind that corn is most frequently found as HFCS (which you should avoid on its own, because its nasty), and soy, besides obvious things like tofu, soy milk and soy sauce, and in less obvious things like chocolate, baked goods and all kinds of processed food.

And of course, soy and corn are pretty much the bulk of industrial animal feed these days, but I know ya’ll are either vegetarian or eat organic meat only, so thats not an issue. Right? RIGHT?

So go on and read John Robbins’ articles, Part I and Part II and decide for yourself.

    Organic Chocolate is also a good replacement for regular chocolate. Check out our website! Sincerely, Amber

    Now, see, whereas your organic chocolate truly seems organically delicious, recurring to spamming techniques on completely unrelated topics somewhat detracts from your credibility.
    You would be much better off had you send this blogger a sample. Then you might have gotten a glowing review instead of a passive aggressive tsk tsk comment.

    Disclaimer: my father used to work for a big corp that made GMO grains, though he did not directly work on the GMOs himself.

    There is no scientific proof that any GMO grains have caused any health problems to us whatsoever. There’s a lot of fear mongering going on. Besides, this type of thing has been going on since Mendel and his hybrid peas.

    I think your biggest fear should be how large corporate farms are growing most of the crops in this country, forcing the small farmers to sell out or go out of business. This has led to food poisoning (the lettuce and spinach contamination scares of recently), and mad cow disease, plus many other problems.
