This stuff is super scary. The more I read, see, learn the scarier it all becomes. The scariest part to me is that I don’t think we, as individuals, have much control. I don’t want to eat anything that is genetically modified and I don’t want anyone I know to eat it either.
Below is a trailer for a documentary called Genetic Roulette Movie. Unfortunately, I’m late on this. This movie was available to view for free for 5 days, September 22 being the last day. You can still watch the entire movie but you have to pay $20. Watch the trailer and see what you think. If you want to watch the whole movie and feel comfortable paying $20 for the privilege great.
Here is the link to youtube incase the below video isn’t working
If you would rather not pay $20, I’m also including a youtube link to GMO, Global Alert. The information in the video is from the results of a Swiss Study that has just been completed. 200 rats were fed transgenic maize for two years (their whole lives). The whole thing is horrible but very telling.
GMO, Global Alert

Here is a link to an article on Mercola.com called “Decade-Long Feeding Study Reveals Significant Health Hazards of Genetically Engineered Foods“.
Here’s a website where you can get more information about Non-GMOs. Hopefully Proposition 37 in California will pass and GMOs will need to be labeled. Fingers are crossed. Label the food then everyone can decide what they want to buy/eat.
Below is one more link to an article/video about GMOs. The video is an interview at Huffington Post with Kevin Folta, PhD Plant Molecular & Cellular Biology University of Florida. He thinks that labeling is a bad idea. I disagree but I thought I would include another view point.
This was a bummer of a post but I think it’s important information. I’m beginning to get to a place where I think I’m going to have to grow all of my own food. I really don’t want to, I don’t have the attention span necessary for that kind of an undertaking and I’m lazy!
