GMO and Monsanto, I've posted a lot about them on this blog and warned against them. The world protested GMOS and it was left out of most USA news except the alternative news sources. Our food is being changed drastically, even the New York Times admitted that nutrition is dropping in food!
Breeding the Nutrition Out of Our Food!
This health directive needs to be revised. If we want to get maximum health benefits from fruits and vegetables, we must choose the right varieties. Studies published within the past 15 years show that much of our produce is relatively low in phytonutrients, which are the compounds with the potential to reduce the risk of four of our modern scourges: cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and dementia. The loss of these beneficial nutrients did not begin 50 or 100 years ago, as many assume. Unwittingly, we have been stripping phytonutrients from our diet since we stopped foraging for wild plants some 10,000 years ago and became farmers.
These insights have been made possible by new technology that has allowed researchers to compare the phytonutrient content of wild plants with the produce in our supermarkets. The results are startling.
Wild dandelions, once a springtime treat for Native Americans, have seven times more phytonutrients than spinach, which we consider a “superfood.” A purple potato native to Peru has 28 times more cancer-fighting anthocyanins than common russet potatoes. One species of apple has a staggering 100 times more phytonutrients than the Golden Delicious displayed in our supermarkets.There is a total war against our food, control via the global elites, at least some are awake and know this is happening. I would have gone to a local protest but do protest Monsanto via other avenues including on a
social website. I try to inform who I can.
