Hi Everybody, today’s topic is GM – genetically modified foods that cause or can contribute towards cancer. I found this great article and I think you will find it very informative.
This site gives a tremendous amount of information about foods that are not good for you, foods that are carcinogenic. I was amazed at all the foods on the list, that I have eaten in the past and had no clue they were not good for me. Its no wonder. When you have time, please review this document. Its long, but its very complete with brand names to use and ones to avoid.
The other thing that amazed me is that grilling food outside on the grill is definitely not a good idea. Also well cooked red meat – nope that is no good either, rare or medium only. I like rare anyway, but mostly avoid red meet.
Atlantic farm salmon is another one.
We do not want our food genetically altered. This is so bad.
Another big offender is canola oil. Read the article please, and use it to help you select items at your grocery store. I know the link is long, but it is so good. Below my signature is a short synopsis!
To your health!
Tips for avoiding GM crops
❧ TIP #1: BUY ORGANIC
Certified organic products are not allowed to contain any
GMOs. Therefore, when you purchase products labeled “100%
organic,” “organic,” or “made with organic ingredients,” all
ingredients in these products are not allowed to be produced
from GMOs. For example, products labeled as “made with
organic ingredients” only require 70% of the ingredients to
be organic, but 100% must be non-GMO.
❧ TIP #2: LOOK FOR“NON-GMO” LABELS
Companies may voluntarily label products as “non-GMO.”
Some labels state “non-GMO” while others spell out “Made
Without Genetically Modified Ingredients.” Some products
limit their claim to only one particular “At-Risk” ingredient
such as soy lecithin, listing it as “non-GMO.”
❧ TIP #3: AVOID AT-RISK INGREDIENTS
Avoid products made with any of the crops that are GM. Most
GM ingredients are products made from the “Big Four:” corn,
soybeans, canola, and cottonseed, used in processed foods.
Some of the most common genetically engineered Big Four
ingredients in processed foods are:
■ Corn flour, meal, oil, starch, gluten, and syrup
■ Sweeteners such as fructose, dextrose, and glucose
■ Modified food starch*
■ Soy flour, lecithin, protein, isolate, and isoflavone
■ Vegetable oil* and vegetable protein*
Canola Canola oil (also called rapeseed oil)
Cotton Cottonseed oil
