I believe that to love is to share and I love sharing!
So come on in, pull up a chair and let's just see what we can learn from one another.
We're all owned.
Lets face it, we're owned by the food industry. Most of us are NOT growing our own food from seeds that we personally cultivated. We're not all eating the 100 mile diet. Heck, most of us can't even afford to buy organics all the time. We all make the best choices for our own individual economic realities while trying to keep it as healthy as possible but it's nearly impossible to avoid GMO and the chemical engineering of many foods in our diet. Well, here comes a story that really brings this to light.
We already know that wheat was modified at some point to create a hybrid that produces a higher percentage of gluten once processed. We know that our bodies have had a difficult time breaking down this high powered gluten and I personally have never heard of anyone, anywhere in the world, who is growing the older version of wheat. Ever asked yourself why not? Who owns those old wheat seeds? Who owns (the patent) on MOST of our foods? Monsanto. Don't be shocked, the patenting of living organisms dates back to at least 1873. But don't for one minute think that just anyone can grow their own foods from their own seeds, because in fact, seed saving can be against the law!
theorists will love this scenario: To coincide with the growing numbers of
gluten-intolerant people in our current population (and to bypass the convoluted pharmaceutical
route) "BIO-ENGINEERED" wheat with Celiac friendly gluten will be
introduced in a few years.
OH -Yippie-Kai-Yay! Call me paranoid but... this all sounds like a
financial plan to me.
What?-you haven't seen Food Inc yet? Well, pop up some genetically modified corn, put some genetically modified canola oil margarine on it and sit down with the DVD. What are you waiting for? Here's a teaser. Be afraid-- be very afraid!
Some more food for thought: " many people in the United States want food that approximates – in so far
as possible – the food their forebears ate. Whole communities such as
the Amish mandate this of their members. This powerful instinct will
always exist among certain groups, regardless of scientific advances and
safety analyses. "
