Myths Unveiled (Synopsis of an article from the Wise Tradition magazine fall 2013)
Does the increase of GMO use in our food chain and the increase of autism is just accidental?
In fact their increase not only overlaps but are almost identical.
How does GMO (genetically modified organisms) work ? Seeds are modified (in a science lab) to resist when sprayed by “roundup” so the crop still grows but not the weeds. Glyphosate, the active ingredient in “roundup” kills weeds are unable to grow when sprayed with “roundup” because the chemical sprayed makes certain minerals unavailable from the soil and therefore weakens the plant and kills it. When “roundup” is sprayed on any crop like corn, canola, soy (and many other GMO crops) the mineral intake is also compromise for these plants but they still survive. Crops do get several applications of “roundup”.
GMO producer Monsanto claims that GMO’s do not affect the mammals . What about the microorganisms in our gut flora? It’s the gut flora that gives us our immune system (good or bad!)
A Walk Through Your Pantry:
GET RID OF: Stay away from all low fat products and any processed vegetable oils from soy, corn and safflower, cottonseed, and canola including margarine which most come from genetically modified production. These oils have been attributed to : increased cancer and heart disease, immune system disorders, liver damage, depression, learning disabilities, wrinkles and premature ageing and more
REPLACE WITH: Butter, beef and lamb tallow, lard, chicken, goose and duck fat, coconut, palm and sesame oils, cold pressed olive oil, cold pressed flax oil in small amounts, and fish liver oils. Real fats will satisfy. Remember to know your sources and buy certified organic whenever possible.
