I am blessed to have been born in the United States where we have freedom of speech and the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  It is from a place of love that I write this article so please take it as such.

During the Vietnam war, the U.S. used a chemical weapon called agent orange on the Vietnamese people.  Recently, Dow has been seeking USDA approval of a new GMO corn called Enlist.  Enlist contains an agent orange derivative.  Dow and Monsanto have teamed up to combine Enlist with Monsanto GMO technology to create Smartstax®.  Rather than denying approval, the USDA has said it needs more time to evaluate the risks of these products.  The USDA also stated that the use of pesticides increases when herbicide resistant crops (GMO’s) become dominant.

What is wrong with this picture?

As consumers, we are all complicit in this practice.  We buy the chemically laden products including food, beauty and cleaning products.  When adverse symptoms or cancer shows up in people or pets, more chemicals called drugs or chemo are used to combat the symptoms often caused by toxic exposure.  How many new birth defects, diseases and infertility issues appeared in the last century as the use of toxic chemicals rose?

We may not use large doses of chemical weapons on the population as Syria did, but small doses of chemical poisons and pesticides over a lifetime have extremely adverse affects on children, adults, animals and the planet.

When researching “cures”, we never seem to find the root cause but rather find a new chemical drug to treat the symptoms.  This practice only causes more adverse reactions and symptoms called side effects.  Don’t get me wrong here.  Drugs and modern medicine can save and prolong lives.  However, God’s cures are plentiful in nature even though they’re not big money-makers.  The American people deserve to have options as God intended.

I am very passionate about health and a healthy food supply.  I will confess that I love the taste of sugar and sometimes contribute to the problem as a consumer.  It’s almost impossible not to purchase unhealthy foods at this time in history.  In a previous article, the temporary GMO Rider seems to highlight that corporations have a lot of power in our government.  Food and health have become political issues.

During a recent lunch with a dear friend, I mentioned that the American people seem apathetic to this issue.  She looked at me with sadness and said it wasn’t apathy but a feeling of hopelessness as if there’s nothing that can be done to change it.  So she spends her money wisely to vote as best she can on healthy choices.

Until GMO’s are labeled, however, any food purchase – even for babies; is a crap shoot.  Our next opportunity to pass a GMO labeling law is in November with 522 in Washington state.   Please show your support and spread the word.  GMO’s are labeled in over 60 countries.  It’s time Americans have the right to know if we are buying foods that contain genetically modified organisms.

I don’t claim to have all the answers and this is a large topic that involves many industries.  However, Albert Einstein said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.  Poisoning God’s food supply including livestock has only brought disease and inhumane treatment to the animals we consume.  I pray that God enters our hearts and minds and shows us a healthier and kinder way.

The people of this country elect the leaders of this country.  The people of this country fund the government and the corporations.  Do you agree that poisoning the food supply is a good idea?  If not, then what would inspire you to care enough about your health and the health of your children to make some healthy changes?

How do you feel about this issue?  Please comment and share with your friends.
