Good Evening Everyone!

      I just got done reading some very disturbing research on foods that are genetically modified.  This mostly surrounds the weed killer "Round-up," which is manufactured by the Monsanto company.  This company also manufactures seeds for our crops that are genetically modified to be resistant to Round-up.  Makes sense right?.... Make a product for farmers to kill the weeds and then the seeds that will resist the poison.  The trouble here is that they can't manufacture a human that is also genetically modified to be resistant to Round-up.  This brings in the disturbing research for what this poison and the genetically modified foods are doing to us.
      The study found that rats exposed to 1) genetically modified foods,  2) round-up and/or 3) water with round-up had many detrimental health effects.  Here are some of the scary results:

  • All 3 groups died 2-3 times more at the same age of rats who were in the control(non-poisoned group)
  • Females in all 3 experimental groups developed large mammary tumors faster than the control group
  • All 3 experimental groups had modified sex hormone balance
  • Many chronic kidney and liver deficiencies for the experimental groups
  • More tumors found in males of the experimental groups (4x more!!)
      So whether you eat food with round-up on it; drink water with trace amounts of round-up in it; or simply eat food that comes from genetically modified (resistance to round-up) crops.....  You are running the chance of have some or all of the above health effects listed above.  The study also listed that soy and corn (two of the most commonly grown and used crops in the U.S.A) were found to have the most residue of round-up on/in them. 

Almost all foods/crops are GMO(genetically modified organisms) or come from GMO sources.  So here is what you can do:
  • buy organic vegetation
  • buy Non-GMO food products
  • support and pay attention to Non-GMO legislation that will put more regulation on making the food you and your family eat safe.

Yours in Health,
