Genetically Modified Food
Companies that sell genetically modified food will not allow independent researchers to access their patented seeds. They claim legal protection for these seeds under patent laws. If their genetically altered seeds are proven to be causing all of the new chronic deceases they would go out of business. This could even result in laws being passed that might prohibit them from using the public as testing guinea pigs. In other words it could end the system of selling it to the public to see what will happen and then have the pharmaceutical companies produce drugs to deal with the consequences. If you find yourself obese, tired all the time, having multiple allergy or being very sickly because of a weak immune system you can try avoiding the following genetically modified foods:
- Cottonseed(used in vegetable cooking oils)
- Canola (canola oil)
- Sugar from sugar beets
- Hawaiian papaya
- Some varieties of zucchini
- Crookneck squash
You will also have to read the label of processed foods to avoid them because corn and soy are two of the most common food ingredients, especially in processed foods, and over 90 percent of both these crops in the US are now from genetically modified seeds.
The goal of genetically modified food is to create a new strain of food that produces its own pesticide, internally, while it grows so that the food crop will not die from pesticide. This is done by blasting DNA from one species into the DNA of a food crop. Unfortunately evidence has been provided suggesting that this pesticide-producing corn, soybean and canola continues to produce pesticide after it has been consumed to also produce pesticide within your own cells.
Food is a critical part of staying healthy if you want to avoid chronic degenerative disease. With the food agencies assigned to protect us being totally ineffective the only way to ensure that you are eating healthy is to personally know the farmer and visit the farm you are buying your food from to ensure it is not carrying any genetically altered food. Okay so that might be too hard but it is still crucial that you know the source of your food. You could also grow or raise then yourself but that is even harder. The easiest way to know your food source is healthy is to delegate that responsibility to someone or an organization you can trust including when you're eating outside your home.
Wall Street deregulation have demonstrated that corporations operating with little or no regulation or real government oversight cannot be trusted to put anything above their goal to maximize profits. They simply will not allow your personal health, your financial health or even allow the law to stand in their way if they can help it. The people running these companies know they are protected because an American Corporation is a legal entity whose mandate is to produce profits for their CEO to share as bonuses, and legal actions can only be taken against the Corporation and not the people running it. In other words the people running these corporations can make decision to poison anyone they want and legal claims can only be made against the corporations and not the CEOs. The cigarette company is a big example of that. Nonprofits are also regarded as corporations but their goal is to provide the biggest salary for the CEOs rather than having a large profit that CEOs can share as bonuses.

These large chemical and pesticide companies spend well over $45 million to defeat Genetically Modified Food labeling in California but Prop 37 still heightened awareness of GMO and advanced the national dialogue about food labeling. For example, since the California measure failed in November 2012, Whole Foods announced this spring that they would require all of their products to have GMO labels by 2018 and many grocery stores have come out opposed to genetically engineered fish (GE Fish).
