Is your grocery store killing you?
Bob Dylan was right — the times are changing. And unlike the old days, the grocery store is fast becoming the most dangerous place you can go. First, they took out the natural nutrients in our food and added “preservative” chemicals. Then they contaminated our dairy and meats with synthetic hormones. And now it’s “Frankenfoods.” These are foods they have genetically modified. We’ve never seen anything like them on the planet before. It makes you wonder if there will be anything decent to eat at all in the next few decades.
Just recently AquaBounty Technologies “created” a new breed of Atlantic salmon. They artificially combined genes from a Pacific salmon with DNA from an eelpout. This allows the mutant fish to keep growing year-round even while confined in crowded tanks. And, of course, they load these tanks with, you guessed it, lots of chemicals. The beauty of it all is that these Frankenfish grow twice as fast. And someone will be able to make a lot of money.
Well, there are two things you need to know about these new wonders of man. First, the so-called “safety studies” are completely bogus. The samples are too small for accuracy. And the time studied is only a few months. And, oh yes, don't forget that the same industries that are selling these products are the ones producing these “safety studies.”

What it really amounts to is that they just assume these genetically modified plants and now animals are safe. It’s like the assumption we’ve made for years that plants grown in artificial fertilizers are safe. The problem is what if they aren’t? How do we find out about it? Maybe we’ll just see an increase in cancer or autoimmune disease. Hey, aren’t we already seeing that? Yes, both of these diseases are rapidly increasing in frequency. And so are diabetes, asthma, chronic viral disease, and skin disease. Hmmm, makes you wonder.
The other thing to be aware of is that the companies selling these products are working hard to prevent you from being able to know what foods are natural and what foods aren’t. They are increasingly changing the wording on labels to make synthetic products sound natural. They are also trying to create laws that prevent companies that sell natural foods from being able to tell you that they are different from their synthetic cousins.
And then they can just plain lie. An article in the Associated Press entitled, “Fish or Frankenfish? FDA Weighs Altered Salmon,” shows just how deceitful they are. The article said, “Current FDA regulations require modified foods to be labeled as such only if the food is substantially different from the conventional version, and the agency has said that the modified salmon is essentially the same as the natural salmon.” It’s essentially the same? What does that mean?
Here’s the deal. You can no longer just assume that because you are in a grocery store with all those natural foods around you that you and your family are safe. I’m getting to the point now that unless it says right on the label that the food is organic and grown naturally, I won’t buy it. If we all act like that, perhaps we can drive the synthetic food industry out of business.
And one other thing. It wouldn’t hurt at all to send your concerns to the FDA at www.fda.gov, with a copy to Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of Health and Human Services at www.hhs.gov/ContactUs.html. The government is supposed to be protecting us.
