(OrganicJar) Do you know what’s in your food? Is it genetically engineered? Do all countries allow genetically modified foods? Many people have no idea that virtually all of America is consuming them. Here are a few things about GMO’s you might not know about. I think if you’re passionate about eating healthy you should be aware of how dangerous genetically modified food is and the great lengths corporations and our government are going to convince you otherwise.

Question: Are people all over the world eating genetically engineered foods?

Answer: No, all of the European Union nations, Japan, China, Australia, New Zealand and many other countries require the mandatory labeling of foods that contain genetically engineered ingredients. As a result, food manufacturers in all those countries choose to use non-genetically engineered ingredients.

Question: Are you telling me that people in the United States and Canada are eating a lot more genetically engineered foods than in many other countries in the world?

Answer: Yes, citizens in the United States and Canada are engaged in the largest feeding experiment in human history and most people are not even aware of the fact.

Question: What countries are growing genetically engineered crops?

Answer: There were only five countries that grew about 98 percent of the $44 billion of commercial genetically engineered crops in 2003-2004. Those five countries were: the United States ($27.5 billion), Argentina ($8.9 billion), China ($3.9 billion), Canada ($2.0 billion) and Brazil ($1.6 billion).

Question: How much of the food I buy in the grocery stores contain genetically engineered ingredients?

Answer: Since genetically engineered soy and corn are used in many processed foods, it is estimated that over 70 percent of the foods in grocery stores in the U.S. and Canada contain genetically engineered ingredients.

Question: Why don’t the food manufacturers and the biotech companies want you to know if your foods have been genetically engineered?

Answer: Because if they are labeled, you will start asking questions such as “Have these genetically engineered foods been safety tested on humans?” The answer to that question is NO!
_____________________________________________________________________

Question: Doesn’t the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) require genetically engineered foods to be safety tested like they do for new drugs and food additives before they are sold to the public for consumption?

Answer: NO! With limited exceptions, under current FDA regulations, companies are not even required to notify the agency they are bringing new genetically engineered products to the market.
_____________________________________________________________________

Question: What can I do to help properly regulate genetically engineered foods so that I can rest assure that these experimental crops will not harm human health or the environment?

Answer: The single most important step you can take is to mail three letters using the U.S. Postal Service. One letter goes to your Congressional Representative in the U.S. House of Representatives and the other two to your state’s two Senators serving in the U.S. Senate. The letters request that they support legislation to label genetically engineered foods. We have form letters on this web site for this purpose. Click here for more.

  1. Hello,

    I would also like to remind everyone that we should all be using organic lotions and creams in our skin care. Lotions that we apply to our body and face go directly into our blood stream (think nicotin patch), and the harmful chemicals they have inside of them do not do your skin cells, nor your overall health any good.

    I would recommend that those wishing to find healthy lotion type into google “healthy lotion” and look for the top companies out there that offer chemical free lotions and face creams. And these will not be the same ones you find in your local drug store. Its called being smart – and being healthy. . .good luck!

    I started by typing into google “healthy lotion” and found my skin care company that I love called Made from Earth. . .
