Questioning Genetically Modified Food and the Health of Your Meat

Article by DerekandJennifer

In my examination of healthy food or genetically modified food I often hear the word “debate”.

Where I come from I am not confident I could speak of Grass-fed beef vs. Grain-fed beef and call it a debate despite that there exists hard evidence to support the matter that grain-fed and all that is obtainable in our grocery stores, is detrimental to our health.

Yet, no one is asking questions. In fact, when I ask the questions in these parts, no one seems the least bit interested in the question or the answer.

Blind faith is an even scarier notion than the Grass vs. Grain cattle topic because this kind of “faith” affects every aspect of the decision making process surrounding the well-being of our lives. That topic, clearly, is an complete book on its own, therefore for the purpose of this text we will stick to the observation of the following:

Pardon, what closet did we leave our coat of ability to reason & question and blindly follow the USDA down the hallway to the basement of ill-health and disease?

For the life of me, I cannot logically reason why there aren’t demands to know why our meat is dyed red, why there isn’t any blood in it, and why are the chicken breasts now the size of my head when a chicken is actually a very little bird. Are the chemicals in our food good for our brain and finally why are the laws pending to stop the filming of feed lots?

Does this raise an eyebrow or don’t you have time to care about these issues and their offspring: Diabetes, Cancer, Brain tumors and Heart disease. And so what about the intestinal damage, liver problems, kidney failure, changed metabolism and deaths evidenced by the consumption of genetically modified foods.

According to The center for Food Safety in Washington D.C., “Currently, up to 40 percent of U.S. Corn is genetically engineered as is 80 percent of soybeans. It has been estimated that upwards of 60 percent of processed foods on supermarket shelves-from soda to soup, crackers to condiments-contain genetically engineered ingredients”.

What part of serious risk to human health and an increase in genetically modified food in our stores sounds like a beneficial marriage? Why isn’t this method of poisoning our fellow man being squashed at the jump?

The actuality that no one (around these parts, at least) is asking questions, investigating the origin of their food or taking a stance to defend what is being offered in the grocery markets leads me to wonder what the correlation is between no questions asked and my living in the most obese county in the state of Illinois, who has a rapidly growing cancer rate with cancer treatment facilities popping up like ice cream stands.

When you dive into the matrix of our food industry and you discover what is happening to your meat, modified food on the shelves and the processing thereof don’t turn a blind eye. Keep going down the rabbit hole.
