Healthy food should be priority number 1 in human lives. If you eat healthy food you will be healthy unless you are genetically predisposed to be unhealthy. Citizens have a right to know what artificial chemicals are added to their food and also have a right to know if the food is a GMO or genetically modified food so that they can make smart choices about the foods which they eat. Humans are getting less healthy by the day eating unhealthy foods which are the leading cause for overweight, diabetes, allergies, birth defects, and other modern health problems. There should be no food secrets and knowing the truth is vital if we are to ever TRUST the food supply which we are consuming on a daily basis.
Here is an excerpt example of one of 13 lies about GMO food which is the most important one.
Lie: GE foods pose no health safety risks.
Truth: GMOs have never been proven safe. The FDA requires no pre-market health safety studies, and the only long term peer-reviewed animal study conducted involving GMO corn sprayed with Monsanto’s Round Up herbicide, found massive tumors, organ failure and premature death in rats. In addition, a growing body of peer-reviewed animal studies have linked these foods to allergies, organ toxicity, diabetes, cancer, autoimmune disorders, birth defects, high infant mortality rates, fertility problems, and sterility. Clearly, more independent, long term studies are warranted. Until GMOs are proven unequivocally safe, they should be labeled so consumers can avoid them if they choose.
