Tonight, my Mom called to tell me that “The Doctors” show had a segment on GMO’s. I love that she is in her mid-80’s and keeping up with current events! Oh, she also reported that ALDI was selling ORGANIC BANANAS today. I love that she cares about what she is eating. – Love you, Mom!
So, I checked their link online (which contained lots of interesting information and helpful links to additional information) … Among other things, here’s what they had to say:
“That may be one of the reasons why things like food allergies [and] autoimmune problems are skyrocketing,” pediatrician Dr. Jim Sears adds. “Peanut allergies in kids have tripled in the last decade.”
Commercialized GMO Crops in the U.S.
Sugar Beets (95%)
Hawaiian Papaya (more than 50%)
More information from this episode of “The Doctors” can be found on this link.
And then there’s the article that ran across my Facebook feed … from “Eat Local Grown”
… “there’s an identical rise in over 30 human diseases correlated with our increased usage of glyphosate and the increased prevalence of genetically engineered proteins in our food.” … If you have an hour to get educated about this, there is a video embedded that is very scientific and terrifying to me. It’s an interview with Dr. Don Huber, who is likely the leading GMO expert in the world. He is an award-winning, internationally recognized scientist, and professor of plant pathology at Purdue University for the past 35 years.
The Paleo Diet:
Last but not least, I received confirmation that following the Paleo Diet can protect us from many of the EVILS present in our current food supply. Check out the article published by the Huffington Post, called “The Paleo Diet: 13 Facts About Eating Like A Hunter-Gatherer”. If you are new to all of this, I highly recommend this read.
Don’t you just love it when everything points in the same direction?
