3 Dangers of Genetically Modified Foods

Do genetically modified foods really cause problems or danger to your body?  Research says an emphatic YES. 

If you think about the term. . . "genetically modified", even the name itself would lend you to think before you tried to consume a food that is labeled in such a way (when you can find a label). 


1.  The largest seed provider in the world is now "forcing" farmers to buy their seed.  It is genetically modified and it feeds most of the world.  How is it genetically modified?  The seed contains weed killing properties mixed in with the vegetable it is going to grow.  Corn is where you will find most of the weed killer.  When the farmers are growing this seed into corn, they are growing a crop that doesn't need sprayed because the seed itself contains the weed killer and you are eating the end result.  Sounds yummy, doesn't it?

2.  The regulations are few and far between.  These huge companies are so powerful that they force their own will on the people.  They can dictate who does what and get away with what they do and continue to do with their sheer $ power. 

3.  The genetically modified seeds are growing crops but an unexpected side effect of these new seeds is that they are producing what are called "super weeds".  This leaves the farmers in another dilemma.  What pesticides will they use to kill the super weeds?  Guess who steps in?  Yes, the same huge companies that created the genetically modified seeds will now create a pesticide they can spray on the super weeds that surround their own seed.  Spraying was never eliminated and now our bodies get a double whammy.

There is so much more information.  It is actually mind boggling.  I am going to pick subjects that I feel passionate about and post when I can.  It's hard not to get so angry.  You can take action by not buying corn that has been planted using the GMO seeds but that is a double-edged sword.  The farmers suffer in every way.  They suffer when they are forced to buy seed through a monopoly and then forced to deal with consumers who don't want to eat the corn they produce because of the dangers to their bodies that are not designed for these foreign substances.
