I want to eat Non-GMO, organic foods everyday for the rest of my life.

GMO foods, Fast foods, Chemically refined foods, Processed foods are BAD for the health of nature/environment and Bad for the health of the human body.

I agree that all foods should be labeled as you suggested with GMO, Non-GMO and organic labels so people are aware and confident of what they are putting in their bodies.

Avoid all Genetically Modified Foods. Avoid all Fast Food. Avoid all Wall Street based Food, such as McDonalds, Chipotee, etc. Only Eat Fresh food. That is food organically produced at Farms nearby your City.

I am starting a homestead so I can grow my own food so I will know where it comes from. I know many people cannot do that so, in my opinion, I would say go to your local farmers markets or find a local farmer and ask if you can but eggs and produce from him. If you can ask him on how to grow things in a container and put it on your back porch.

My OPINION is that if the BUGS won't eat it, then it is NOT fit for human consumption.

That is a good Analogy. But not necessarily at all True.

LOL. Apparently you did not understand my comment. I said that this was my OPINION.
Nowhere did I indicate whether I believed whether my OPINION is true or not. FYI OPINIONS
are not necessarily based on truth.

I would agree with those who have already said: to avoid GMO Food and in fact all Big Corporate Food such sa McDonalds, Burger King, KFC, etc. yuks :( Eat Fresh food sourced from your Local Farmers always. Better for you. Better for your Community. Better for Environment,ent since you do not need to burn Ton of Fossil Fuel shopping Food from God Forsaken Food processing Factories to you.

Major Wall Street based companies like Monsanto are altering our lives by altering our food supplies which affect our DNA. Monsanto and its Genetically Modified Foods (GMO), are capable of creating all sort of bad side effects which we cannot even imagine now. Monsanto is really the Monster maker, but since they are backed will Billions of Wall Street Money, and an Army of Lawyers, then can get away with mass poisoning of US with their GMO (Monster) Food.

So if you want to live a long and healthy life, avoid GMO, and instead eat Organic.

You are absolutely right jessica_sol. God have mercy on us as most foods we buy in stores
are GMO. God's way is best just simple food we can grow and raise ourselves! But who now
days does that, I would say not many.

jessica_sol 3 years 1 month ago

No Den my friend, we do not need: "to have God have mercy on us". We just need to avoid
Wall Street based Food altogether, that is say:
NO 2 McDonald
NO 2 Pizza Hut
NO 2 Chipotte
NO 2 Big grocery Chains
etc.

And instead buy your food from your local Farmers Market, which is where I buy my Food
every Saturday Morning and Tue Morning, which is our local Farmers Markets. Also eat at
non-Wall Street based Restaurants in your City whom buy their ingredients from local
Farmers Markets.

jessica_sol 3 years 1 month ago

In fact for the Healthiest body and mind, avoid ALL Wall Street based everything, from
Foods listed above, to WalMart, to Gap, to Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc. I know that is
not going to be always possible, since Wall Street based companies have access to 100s of
Billions of Dollars so they will always out market and out muscle other sources. But we
need to do our best. That is why I thank God for having this Anoox which is a
not-for-profit not Wall Street based Search Social Network.

DEN14 3 years 1 month ago

I just saw on TV today that a Farmer's Market is charging farmers $100.00 for membership
and $50.00 to rent stalls before they can sell their produce to us. This is outrageous.
The government should be providing this space free of charge to the farmers. They have to
sell a lot of food even before they can start earning a profit and will have to raise
their prices higher! It is just another way that government is taking us for a ride! It is
almost impossible to avoid big business. God Bless you.

jessica_sol 3 years 1 month ago

While it will be nice if Government provided space free of charge to farmers, that is not
as important as the Government educating People that they are far better buying their
Foods from local Farmers rather than Monsters such as Monsanto and other Big Wall Street
Food makers such as McDonalds, etc. But of course problem is that Big Wall Street firms,
whether Food processing or Health insurance or Banks, etc. control our Government via
their control of Wall Street (right-wing) Media.

DEN14 3 years 1 month ago

Yes the government should encourage people to buy their food from the farmer, but that
will never happen because the govrnment is in with Monsanto and all the big food
companies, and Wall Street where the big money is.

jessica_sol 3 years 1 month ago

DEN14, yes exactly. That is where the problem lays. That is the Wall Street Billionaire
Class has total strangle hold of our Government, via their control of the Wall Street
Media, of course, which is where 99% of Americans (unfortunately) get their information
from. But there is hope that things can really change, if more and more of Americans start
getting their information via non-Wall Street backed Social Media such as this Anoox.
Although I agree that is a slim chance.

DEN14 3 years 1 month ago

So many people are asleep to all this and even seem unconcerned and think that their food,
water, medicine, and air are all right!! When they are surely not!

DEN14 2 years 11 months ago

And jessica_sol this is not jut a problem in the United States but it is worldwide now.
Monsanto and other big corporations are worldwide making and selling GMO foods and
spraying poisons on the food crops like roundup.

Facts: When altering our food supply without enough long term studies we don't know what the side effects are. From being in the food service industry for over thirty years. My personal opinion is I don't like GMO foods.
Also, several foreign countries have banned all GMO foods from this country.
Now you have to be careful with total organic foods. They say the very young and the very old should not eat all organic foods.
Read every label.
Eat foods in moderation
Eat the basic four food groups
Exercise
Stay away from processed food. Cook your meals from scratch
Control your salt
Yes I believe all GMO foods should be labeled
Remember this question cannot be answered in a short post.
Read, their is plenty of data on the internet pro/con
Thank you

That's why I stated to be a very personal decision (I do not advocate for GM foods as I
would not eat them) but I wouldn't suggest someone to think this or that way ...So I am
not disagreeing with you that GM foods may be bad But they may be not bad .

jessica_sol 3 years 1 month ago

Foodfhonebook, right on. Do not just avoid GMO based food, but avoid all "processed
food" and instead as much as you can eat Fresh food.

DEN14 3 years 1 month ago

I agree with all this processed foods are as bad as GMO's!

DEN14 2 years 11 months ago

They put chemicals, poisons, coloring, etc into the food we have to eat actually
rendering it unfit to eat because it is hurting out health causing all sorts of diseases
including cancer.

Avoid genetically modified food because it is not natural, it is artificial and all artificial foods harm us on the long run. Eat natural organic food because it is healthy. All foods should be labelled if it is CMO or not or organic.

Genetically modified foods or GM foods, also genetically engineered foods, are foods
produced from organisms that have had changes introduced into their DNA using the methods
of genetic engineering. Genetic engineering techniques allow for the introduction of new
traits as well as greater control over traits than previous methods such as selective
breeding and mutation breeding.
There is a scientific consensus that currently available food derived from GM crops
poses no greater risk.

DEN14 3 years 1 month ago

No scientists have proof now that current food from GMO pesticides incorporated into them
are harming our physical health and causing cancer and new diseases. The best way to eat
for good health is Non-GMO's and natural and organic foods.

rcandeias 3 years 1 month ago

Not disagreeing with that as you can see from my coments above ....But if you already made
your mind up why ask? :) Also your question was about GMO foods not pesticides....
cheers!!

DEN14 3 years 1 month ago

Because people need to know about GMO foods rcandeias, and most GNO foods are full of
pesticides on them and also in them as the big companies that make them are trying to
making some GMO's foods pest resistant. We are being slowly poisoned by GMO's every day
that we eat them leading to sickness and finally death. All need to know the true facts
about this.

DEN14 3 years 1 month ago

Above I meant Now scientists have proof...........

rcandeias I read your article above. GMO food are bad for our health and countries are
starting to ban them> The big food processing companies are pushing hard for no GNO
labeling and are fighting in congress to stop any kind of labeling. Scientists have found
out that many modern diseases we have are caused by these GMO foods we are eating.

rcandeias 3 years 1 month ago

I will read more about it ...of course But I have nothing for or against it and also
cannot blanket not like all as there GM and GM .

DEN14 3 years 1 month ago

Monsanto and other big corporations are trying to hide the truth from us because they want
to keep our money flowing to them. And now congress has been

DEN14 3 years 1 month ago

by them to ban any food labeling of GMO's. They have a lot of money to pay people in
authority to do what they want them to do.
