Top 7 GMO Foods to Avoid

AYBGX1

Did you know the top 7 GMO  foods to avoid are corn, soy, alfalfa, cottonseed, papaya, canola and sugar beets? We are in a war to fight for our rights to eat food unadulterated. Our government doesn’t to understand how sick our country has become due to our extremely toxic and disruptive foods sources we now have. I am seeing more and more young children in my office who are suffering at such early ages now. Many from the start have food allergies, immune system dysfunctions manifesting as eczema and asthma, not to mention neurological disorders couple with learning disabilities. There is no research needed as far as I am concerned as to why so many have health problems. The ONLY place we need to look is our environment and the damaging things we are doing to our food.  Here is a great article by naturalnews.com on the top GMO foods to avoid.

The top seven GMO crops you should avoid like the plague

(NaturalNews) Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are plant and meat products that have had their DNA altered and possibly mutated in some laboratory, and it’s all coined as the evolution of science and biotechnology for agriculture in order to fool the masses into believing that it’s for “our own good.” They (biotech giants) even teach it in schools and at Disney World now, and they say it all without ever telling anyone what they’re REALLY doing, and that is inserting the genes from other plants, animals, viruses and bacteria into food — often in the form of pesticides that can’t be washed off.

For any scientist to say that a human can consume pesticide and insecticide safely at any amounts is absurd, but “modern science” and “Western Medicine” are doing just that, and they’re trying to brainwash our children when no one wiser is around to defend them. Genetically mutated food is everywhere now, in every popular restaurant you can name and in every grocery store you’ve visited in the last 15 years, even Whole Foods. Ever heard of the “canola oil prepared-food bar”? Ninety percent of corn, soy, canola and cottonseed is GMO — the 11th plague, cancer food, has fallen upon mankind.

There are salmon in the ocean with genes from a much larger eel. There are flu shots and vaccines (swine flu for example) that carry GMO bacteria genes, dangerous virus combinations and “weaponized mycoplasma.” It is completely unknown what this concoction does to humans as it’s injected into your muscle tissue, where it hides from your immune response system and leads directly to auto-immune disorders. How would you like NOT being able to build antibodies anymore? How insane is that? All thanks to the bizarre world of believing that eating pesticide-making genes somehow helps mankind prosper. Plus, the FDA doesn’t require safety testing for GMOs. Do you still wonder why they don’t want them labeled? Contributing lobbyists in Washington, DC, represent corporations that fuel the genetically “mutated” agriculture, meat and milk industries, not to mention GM medicine.

The GMO Plague

Market watchers estimate that seven out of ten processed foods at local supermarkets contain genetically modified ingredients, but it’s probably more like ten out of ten. In the past decade, the growth percentage of the top three GMO crops has soared a whopping 80 percent! Dow AgroSciences is right in the middle of it all, making matters worse.

Remember the ten plagues that fell on Egyptians who kept the Jewish slaves in bondage, until Moses freed them? There were locusts and dying cattle, and the death of first-born sons of the Egyptians. Sound familiar? GMO brings plagues upon mankind, including birth defects, infertility, spontaneous abortion, dying cattle, diseased fowl and superbugs and superweeds that consume the agriculture. Here are the seven commandments from the GMO tablets “brought down from the mountain” of Natural News:

Seven GMO Commandments

Thou shall not eat genetically modified corn! Corn is the number one crop grown in the US, and at least 88 percent is genetically modified (mutated) to contain foreign DNA, bacteria and pesticide. It’s used as animal feed also in confined animal feeding operations across the country.

Thou shall not eat GM soy! Soy beans were never meant to be eaten by humans in the first place. The Chinese knew centuries ago. Soy is a staple food that appears in hydrogenated oils, lecithin, emulsifiers and protein supplements everywhere. At least 93 percent of soy in America is GMO.

Thou shall not eat GM cottonseed! It says in the Bible not to tamper with nature and alter its natural form. Look it up. Nearly all fried foods contain cottonseed oil, not to mention genetically modified rapeseed oil — a.k.a. canola.

Thou shall not eat GM alfalfa! CAFO farmers feed to dairy cows genetically modified alfalfa that contains pesticide and gives them digestive disorders and parasites. These conventionally raised cows are bred to produce milk, butter, yogurt and meat. GM alfalfa is toxic, but it’s the fourth largest crop grown in the US behind corn, soybeans and wheat.

Thou shall not eat GM papaya! At least 75 percent of the Hawaiian papaya crop has been genetically modified to withstand papaya “ringspot” virus. Are you a virus?

Thou shall not eat GM canola! Canola is used for bio-fuels. It has been found growing far from any planted fields, which raises great concern about its ability to compete with wild plants as it “escapes” into nature. There was no such thing as canola before the 1970s. Mankind created this mutation from rapeseed by lessening the toxic acid content, and it’s Canada’s number one export to the US. Are they exporting a food plague?

Thou shall not eat GM sugar beets! More than half of all sugar sold in the US comes from sugar beets. That’s also where MSG, monosodium glutamate, comes from. At least 90 percent of sugar beets are GMO thanks to the USDA. The organization True Food Now has a list of foods currently being tested for genetic modification. Get a snapshot of the future and avoid the GMO plague, well, “like the plague.”

Dandelions aren’t weeds!

I was out for a long walk the other day and was amazed at all the beautiful flowers and trees blooming but the one blooming flower I noticed the most was the Dandelion. Knowing all the incredible healing and medicinal properties this plant has I began to pick the roots, leaves and the bright yellow flower that this little beauty is known for. I know my fellow hikers and bikers who passed by must have thought I was crazy but if they knew what I knew about this delectable little herb they would never use one more pesticide in their lawn again. They shouldn’t be doing that anyway but that’s another blog! When you think of the Dandelion it really is considered the “Rodney Dangerfield” of the plants in that it gets “no respect”.  Many have often thought of it as a “weed” but the truth is that mother nature makes no mistakes and this is certainly true of this plant. The name dandelion comes from the French “Dente de Lyon” or “Lion’s tooth”,  named because of their jagged tooth-like appearance on the green leaves.

The  little Dandelion’s nutritional value is very high in vitamins A and C, with more beta carotine than carrots and more potassium than broccoli  or spinach, not to mention healthy doses of iron and copper for good measure.  Vitamin A is an important fat-soluble vitamin and anti-oxidant, required for maintaining healthy mucus membranes and skin and vision. The herb is a good source of minerals like potassium, calcium, manganese, iron, and magnesium. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids, which helps regulate heart rate and blood pressure and makes an excellent natural diuretic. Iron is essential for red blood cell production. Manganese is used by the body as a co-factor for the antioxidant enzyme, superoxide dismutase. Additionally, it is  a good source of Vitamin B, and zinc. Medicinally, Dandelions are considered very safe and effective as a general tonic that helps strengthen the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, spleen, stomach, and intestines,  improving bile flow and reducing inflammation in cases of hepatitis and cirrhosis.  Dandelions also help to dissipate gallstones and are believed to improve kidney function, thereby improving overall health and clearing skin problems. I have often used dandelion herb to break a fever and quicken my bodies ability to fight acute infection. Dandelion is one of the richest herbal sources of vitamin K. Vitamin-K has a potential role in bone mass building and in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease patients by reducing damage to the neurons in the brain.

Did you know that Native Americans use to boil the herb to make a tea to treat kidney disease and inflammation and that Chinese physicians use dandelion to treat digestive disorders and appendicitis? It always amazes me to learn about century old herbal remedies that are in our own backyard that most times are better and safer than any pharmaceutical drug out there!

Here is a great tip for addicted coffee lovers looking for a replacement beverage with a much healthier twist. Dandelion coffee is fantastic to help clear the liver and gallbladder rather than congest it like coffee does. The best way to do this is dig up the roots of a dandelion plant. Be sure to harvest the roots from a dandelion plant that has not been near a road way, so its free of pollution and one that has no pesticides or fertilizer on it. Look for large healthy leaves because this will tell you how big the root is. Pull the leaves off to use in salad or saute with garlic and onions to be served with dinner, pull the heads of the dandelion off and toss into your fresh garden salad or use for dandelion blossom tea.

To make dandelion coffee:

  • Remove the roots from the rest of the plant.
  • Wash the roots thoroughly several times to ensure all dirt is removed.
  • Cut the roots into very small pieces and spread on a baking sheet.
  • Dry the roots in a 150° oven with the door slightly ajar (to allow moisture to escape).
  • Roast the dry roots in a 350° oven, stirring frequently until mildly brown and fragrant.
  • Grind the roasted roots in a coffee grinder.
  • Use 1 teaspoon to brew 1 8 oz. cup of “coffee” .

To make dandelion blossom tea:

  • Pick a handful of dandelions and remove the flower heads from the green parts.
  • Rinse lightly with cool water to remove debris and dirt.
  • Put a few flowers into a mug and add boiling water.
  • Steep approximately 15 minutes or to taste. You can drink plain or add sweetener with honey, agave or stevia.

One thing I love to do with the dandi’s is put them in my dehydrator so that I can make my own dandelion tea or dried leaves to sprinkle in salads, smoothies or sandwiches. You can use them for your kids and loved ones to get their bodies to begin to cleanse without them ever needing to know. Sweet! Below is a picture of my freshly picked dandelions in the dehydrator just after I got back from my walk. I left them to dehydrate for 8 hours then put them in a closed container and sprinkly them on just about everything. My supply is already running low, need another session of weed picking. Thank God for weeds!!

Genetically-Modified Foods: Dangerously Delicious, or Deliciously Dangerous?

What Are Genetically-Modified Foods?
Certain foods’ genetic materials, or DNA, have been altered in such a way that they do not occur naturally. You can call it many different ways: modern biotechnology, gene technology, recombinant DNA technology and genetic engineering.

What Is The Objective For Producing GM Foods?
GM seed developers initially altered plants genetically to “improve crop protection.” The concern came from diseases affecting plants exposed from insects and viruses. Over time, they saw an advantage to growing these crops as a novelty for farmers and the rest of the food industry, as well a greater benefit “in terms of nutritional value and durability”; not to mention, “lower prices.”

What Are The Advantages Of GM Foods?

  • Pest resistance
  • Herbicide tolerance
  • Disease resistance
  • Cold tolerance
  • Drought tolerance / salinity tolerance
  • Nutrition
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Phytoremediation

What Are The Disadvantages Of GM Foods?

  • Environmental hazards
  • o Unintended harm to other organisms
  • o Reduced effectiveness of pesticides
  • o Gene transfer to non-target species
  • HUMAN HEALTH RISKS
  • o Allergenicity
  • o Unknown effects on human health
  • Economic concerns

Backache? Stop Eating the Cake!

Beauty may be spine deep more than it is skin deep. How can weight loss help back pain? Many chiropractic patients that appear with low-back pain have biomechanical problems due to excess weight that is affecting their spine. The American Obesity Association estimates that as many as 65% or 125 million adult Americans are classified as overweight. Most people understand that excess weight contributes to developing diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure; but did you realize that obesity could significantly contribute to symptoms associated with osteoarthritis, degenerative disc disease and spinal canal stenosis?

The body is designed to balance stress that the spine is under by distributing forces encountered throughout the day. When excess weight is carried, the spine is forced to assimilate the burden, which may lead to major vertebral structural compromise, damage to the discs as well as soft tissue adhesions.

Patients would do well to lose excess weight and reduce the load on their spine, as this is an important part of the healing process. One quick way to reduce weight is by reducing the amount of high Glycemic index (GI) foods in your diet.

  • High GI foods quickly digest and are turn into glucose in the blood causing a rise in insulin.
  • Glucose that is not used as immediate fuel or stored in the liver and muscle gets turned into body fat.

Glycemic index provides a simple and scientific way to distinguish good and bad sugars. The body needs sugar to function but the trick is to know which sugars provide the most fuel without unreasonable demands of our bodies.

Factors That Make a Carbohydrate a Low Glycemic Food:

  • Presence of fiber (oatmeal/beans)
  • Size of the starch (finely milled flours are higher GI than coarse flours)
  • How long a starch is cooked (al dente lowers GI than soft cook pasta)
  • Fat that slows the absorption of blood sugar down
  • Carbohydrates surrounded by a tough coat (beans/seeds)

5 Ways to Blunt Blood Sugar:

  • Add beans – a low to medium GI food brings down the rating of the entire meal
  • Sprinkle on some cinnamon – a 1/4 tsp per day can improve the insulin uptake of glucose
  • Add vinaigrette to a salad or protein
  • Use good fat – one to two tsp of olive/fish oil or nuts/seeds
  • Add a low-fat protein to slow down the digestion and absorption of sugars

Finding a great spine coach is a great way to get started to reducing your weight and your low back pain.
