I love food. Who doesn’t? But more importantly I love whole NATURAL foods that are non-GMO!
Thanks to my Mom, I’ve been aware since I was a teenager to not buy anything that is GMO. I learned that Monsanto is not a good company and that they shouldn’t be trusted with our food supply. Personally their poisonous plants give creep me out. I don’t want checmicals in my body. Their are so many scientific studies that show all the damage these products can cause in our bodies. But it’s not just the GMO products that I don’t like from them. They are also the manufacturers of aspartame and are rBGH both of which I’m against. They also use their money and power to trump politics, to make it so you can’t sue them. They are creating a monopoly that puts small farmers out of business, even sueing small farmers who refuse to use their GMO seeds!! That just makes me so mad! Oh and by the way, ex-Monsanto executives run the United States Food and Drug Administration, the agency tasked with ensuring food safety for us, the American public. Although I’ve never put a lot of faith in the FDA anyway. Ugh. So many things I don’t like about this company.
I don’t want to get too deep into this topic on here because first of all, that would be a looonnngg post. And second I like to keep things positive around this place. But I think it is important to be aware of what’s being done to our food/crops so we can make the right choices when we are at the store; that we don’t support Monsanto or any GMO products for that matter.
