The young man above is from the Detroit March Against Monsanto which was held this past weekend, and he obviously is smarter than I am. I’ve followed the marches in previous years and expected to see live streams and tons of videos on the internet and the main street and local news. I was wrong, but WHY? When millions of people worldwide (people from approximately 40+ countries and well over 400+ cities) march in protest, that is news, but obviously not when it comes to the lobbyists and others who want to keep the truth from the consumers who are more interested in profits over people. This type of censorship is unacceptable.
As I was searching various cities where I knew the marches took place, I couldn’t help but notice that even on Facebook, a lot of the sites had no information, no articles and no videos, unlike previous years. Knowing how strong and commited the various groups have been in the past, one can only assume there is an answer to the “why” – one that will only make me work harder to be part of the non GMO activism.
Readers and activists – DON’T STOP NOW! The march is over for this year, but there is so much work that still needs to be done. Keep up the calls, e-mails, tweets, letters, and Petitions to our representatives, and watch for political candidates for the 2016 election that cares about the health and well being of the people when deciding on who you will vote for. What is their stance on GMOs, on labeling, and what connections do they have to large corporations and who is contributing to their campaign?

I was fortunate enough to come across the video below. It seems that the March Against Monsanto is news in other countries. Again, I ask, why wasn’t there any more coverage here in the U.S.A.? It isn’t because people don’t care because I can assure you from my blog, Facebook, and twitter account, the two most popular subjects are about GMO and the Right to Life. Perhaps the drop in profits of Monsanto have something to do with it. Perhaps the increase in organic non GMO foods is increasing in popularity and more and more people are shopping for healthier foods – foods that don’t cause cancer and other dangerous health issues. Are our voices being quieted because more and more companies are going non GMO and it is hurting the large corporations and politicians who seem to be in bed with them?

Someone recommended a “Trailer” for me to watch and it got my attention, so I decided to watch the full movie. The research was astonishing and I would recommend watching the full version to see the importance of what food really does to our bodies based on decades of worldwide research from a medical and scientific view – proof that we are NOT told about because of the greed for money and power.
I personally believe “You are what you eat”, but even after years of learning about food and eating “healthy” in order to reverse Type 11 diabetes, which I have been 100% successful in doing for well over a decade and a half, without no medication at all, this video taught me a lot that I didn’t know. I’d also go one step further then the videos and add that plant based food is only “good” if it is organic. Like I’ve said so many times before, I rather pay the higher price for nonGMO and gluten free foods then to spend my money on doctors, hospitals, or prescriptions that just hide the symptoms instead of taking care of the underlying problem.
For years and years I’ve used myself as a human guinea pig, getting blood tests every three month, to see what and how foods would impact my blood tests, until I found out what controlled my diabetes without medication, what lowered my blood pressure, cholesterol, and triglycerides and what kept my weight at the level I wanted it at.
I’ve included the Trailer, which is a shorter version just to get your attention, as the full version is quite long – but worth every second of time it takes to watch.
Here is the full version:
This may be a Swedish test, but let’s not fool ourselves. If we were to do the same thing here in the U.S.A., the results would be the same – GO ORGANIC – your life and health depends on it!
From fish with cancer and medications found in our water supply that is changing the sex of fish, growth hormones in our meat, genetically modified organisms in our food, we also have to watch out for Carrageenan. The sad thing is that Carrageenan is also commonly used in organic foods so when we think we are eating healthy, that may not be the case at all.
Carrageenan is a common food additive that is extracted from a red seaweed, which has no nutritional value at all, and is used as a thickener and binder to improve the texture of ice cream, yogurt, cottage cheese, soy milk and other processed foods. In manufacturing, carrageenan is also used as a stabilizer in medications, foods, and toothpaste and is an ingredient in weight loss products .
The University of Illinois College of Medicine, conducted studies linking carrageenan – the type that is widely used in foods with malignancies and other stomach problems and our digesting carrageenan causes inflammation and that when we consume processed foods containing it, we ingest enough to cause inflammation in our bodies. Since chronic inflammation is a root cause of many serious diseases including heart disease, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s diseases, and cancer, the use of carrageenan has been tested in tissues and when laboratory mice are exposed to low concentrations of carrageenan for 18 days, they develop “profound” glucose intolerance and impaired insulin action, both of which can lead to diabetes.
According to Charlotte Vallaeys, director of Farm and Food Policy for non-profit food policy research group Cornucopia, the FDA picks profits over public health. Though current research indicates carrageenan side effects can cause a host of problems, the FDA refuses to impose limitations on its use. “Natural does not mean safe,” says Vallaeys. “Poison ivy is natural, but you wouldn’t put it in skin lotion…carrageenan side effects appear to do to your gut what poison ivy does to your skin.”
