Could GMO's Be More Toxic Than DDT?

When heavy doses of pesticides and herbicides, especially glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup, are sprayed on GM crops, it destroys the beneficial bacteria in the soil. It is also taken up into the plant and becomes part of the plant. When you ingest foods contaminated with glyphosate, the beneficial bacteria in your gut are likewise destroyed, compromising your health. Dr. Don Huber, an expert in the toxicity of GM foods, claims that the threat to health is greater than the outlawed pesticide, DDT.
Monsanto’s glyphosate also combines with many minerals making them unavailable to plants. Minerals and other nutrients are again lost because the soil life that prepares minerals for plant absorption are now dead. GM crops never get the minerals they need. They become weak and mineral deficient. That means you don't get them either, and your body becomes weak and deficient. Some minerals are reduced by 80 to 90%. It is common sense that something is destroying the health of humans worldwide. Just look around at the massive increases in degenerative diseases. I believe that GM crops are a threat to human life. Monsanto and the whole of modern agriculture created this disaster because they see humans and business as separate from life. We and nature are not separate. We cannot live if we destroy nature. Anti-life approaches to agriculture, or any other discipline, are not compatible with life. We are alive because of this complex web of life.
What can you do?
Avoid eating all genetically modified foods. Since they are not labeled, basically that means avoiding all processed foods that are not labeled organic. Actually, it’s best to avoid everything that comes in a can or a package. Practically all packaged foods use GMO corn and soybeans. Corn, soy, canola, and cottonseed oils are widely used. High fructose corn syrup is ubiquitous. Corn is fed to most animals. GMO fed animals produce milk and cheese with glyphosate. Research scientists claim that GM foods are responsible for the huge increases in degenerative diseases, soaring healthcare costs, and tens of thousands of deaths.
The solution is to buy organic, especially avoid these foods in non-organic form:
1) Corn and all corn products such as high fructose corn syrup.
2) Soy and all soy products.
3) Cottonseed and canola oil, both genetically engineered.
4) All animal products, including milk and cheese, from animals fed alfalfa or corn.
5) Papaya, 75% of Hawaiian papaya is genetically engineered.
6) Sugar Beets and sugar made from them. Natural raw cane sugar is much tastier.
7) All non-organic wheat and oat products. Even though these are not GMO, they are sprayed with glyphosate to kill the crop for early harvest. Buy only organic products. Avoid toxic agriculture.
There are so many other interesting grains and legumes to choose from. But you should know how to process even those foods to reduce the natural anti-nutrients they use to protect themselves from decomposing in the soil (Chapter 6 in my book, Extraordinary Healthcare)
When you avoid processed foods and GMO foods, your system recovers rapidly. It can also be quite fun to explore the tastes of other foods that have been used for centuries in cultures around the world. You have many delicious choices. Preparing meals from scratch is not as time consuming as driving to restaurants. Just plan ahead a little.
