There was a time when calling food organic would have been like calling water wet.
Of course it’s organic, it is built of carbons, it is free and clear of foreign bodies, and came from the earth. But now we have a label stating when our food is in its natural state. Instead of vice versa.
And now we have GMO’s to consider. And these aren’t labeled on our foods. Again, its only labeled when it DOESN’T have it.
It boggles my mind how all other things have to have the toxins, poisons, ingredients, and materials listed. Except food. The stuff we ingest internally apparently is not as important to label as the mattress, which is required by law to list contents.
That’s just weird. That’s the kind of weird people will be talking about 2000 years from now.
I can hear it now. “Well the late dwellers of the Western American civilization did amazing things like went to the moon and cloned species. But then they put the genes of one species (of animal, plant, or micro organism) into another species of food, even though research suggested that GMO’s were harmful to the creature ingesting them.
And in 2 generations their children had scales and gills. So they all migrated back to the ocean where they now live as single celled mutations.
I don’t know, that’s really not that funny.
Because THEY are putting SHIT in my FOOD.
So while they label the non poisonous food as Organic, they do not have to label GMOs (which I consider poisonous) at all. Oh okay, I get it, yeah that makes total sense.???????
What to do?
Trade with a gardener for food.
Get connected with a CSA.
Get good at saving seeds.
Become knowledgeable in harvesting and foraging food.
Buy organic and non-gmo labeled foods.
And I know it costs more but stay away from the GMO’s. Far AWAY.
Boycott it all together.
And do your homework, learn about GMO’s for your friend’s and family’s health.
