GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organisms. Monsanto is the largest Bio-Tec company that is Genetically Modifying our food. This enables them to alter the DNA structure of that plant so they can spray tons of pesticides without killing the plant. This can have terrible effects on our health.
These GMO products are known to cause fatigue, depression, brain fog and digestive disorders, Monsanto uses bacteria and virus to change the molecular structure of the plant using cell invasion. They can infuse tomatoes with an arctic fish so the tomato withstands colder temperatures. Many products you buy have been altered without the consumers’ knowledge.
Tomatoes, beets, papaya, potatoes, alfalfa, all soybeans, rice, canola oil and all corn (high fructose corn syrup). All big food companies put GMO products in there processed products. Nestle, PepsiCo, General Mills, Kellogg, Coca Cola, Bertolli, Heinz food and Pepperidge Farm just to name a few.
The best thing you can do is research and read the labels. Buy organic and local food when you can. Always look for the USDA organic label when buying organic. Tom Vilsack and Michael Taylor worked at Monsanto for many years now running the USDA.
The revolving door in the corrupt government with Big Agriculture companies. We must demand the FDA label all GMO foods. If the GMO food is so good for us why isn’t labeled? Dennis Kucinich has introduced H.R. 3553 the Genetically Engineered Food Right to Know Act.
We need to make all our federal legislators aware of this bill. It’s time to get Monsanto out of our food and government and protect your health and start eating healthy. You are what you eat.
