GMOs – The Frankenstein Foods!

The Frankenstein foods!

We truly don’t have anything against Frankenstein, he’s actually a pretty cool guy.

What we DO have a problem with are “Frankenstein foods,” AKA Genetically Modified Foods (GMO’s), and there’s a very good reason why we feel this way, as there are many disadvantages.

The questions we get asked most:

  • What are GMOs? 
  • Why are people eating them?
  • And why can they be so dangerous?

All great questions, and we’re happy to answer them because we really need to shed some light on this issue icon smile GMOs   The Frankenstein Foods! So instead of us replying to each email independently, we figured that a nice post on it would be even better.

The GMO battle is VERY REAL!

versatile health gmos1 GMOs   The Frankenstein Foods!

 

GMO’s are proving to be very controversial these days and have actually raised many questionable issues with a lot of people – scientific, environmental, social, ethical, political, and health overall. Needless to say, there’s too much to debate.

Generally speaking, the term “GMO” refers to food crops that have been reformed or altered (genetically) by utilizing a variety of scientific procedures. In other words, scientists putting food genes through processes by means of providing them with ‘new’ and/or ‘boosted’ features.

It’s the equivalent of somebody merging the genetics of a chicken and a pig together to create a “ Super Chicken-Pig!”

Not too sure if either of us would want to eat a super chicken-pig…

Disadvantages of GMO GMOs   The Frankenstein Foods!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The monetary factor

The GMO process is all about making money – creating a product that can appeal to the masses, preserve well, grow efficiently, and sell – no two ways about it.

Scientists, big food corporations (and farmers alike) are trying to create strains that can withstand what normal foods and plants can’t; these traits include, chemical tolerances, pesticide resistance, heightened nutritional content, and the tolerance of extreme environments. All of it sounds good (in a sense), but the processes involved with genetically altering food is far from being natural.

The GMO goal here is simple – to make a product that can endure the impossible and make the most money.

These procedures literally go against the natural code of food, and that’s never really a good thing.

MOTHER EARTH IS NOT HAPPY!

Gene splicing

gmo are dangerous GMOs   The Frankenstein Foods!

GMO mutation allows particular genes to be recognized, isolated, duplicated and introduced to other organisms. The transferring of these genes amid species involves the insertion or deletion of specific genetic features. It’s pretty insane what some scientists can do these days.

During these procedures, certain plant DNA can be artificially transferred between organisms. In other words, creating something that’s not really supposed to be created in the first place.

The reason so much debate surrounds this practice is because it’s NOT natural (or ethical) and we (the people) don’t really know the effects quite yet, but that is changing.

In the grand scheme of things, GMOs are a pretty new concept, and it’s much too early to know the effects. Who knows what 50-years of eating genetically modified foods can really do to a person. What we do know is that studies have shown some very adverse effects on animals, and to us, these are HUGE red flags.

There is also a strong possibility that these molecular processes can produce or cause certain allergic reactions to occur within those who eat them as well, as science is starting to shed some much-needed light on all of this as well.

Our list below highlights some of what has been discovered when analyzing the effects of GMO’s. 

BIG GMO Disadvantages 

  • Possibility of humans developing new allergic reactions to the foods they eat.
  • Strong likelihood of widespread infestation of diseases across species barriers.
  • GM foods can disturb the natural flow of our environments.
  • Artificial characteristics can be passed on to subsequent generations.
  • Unpredictable health effects: we do not yet know the long-term effects of these mutated foods. It could be way worse than what we already recognize.
  • Insufficient government regulation.
  • Some crops are now possibly being engineered to produce their own pesticides.
  • Global threat to humanity’s food supply!
YIKES!!!

As you can see, there is A LOT to be worried about here.

 

So what do you do?

gmo downsides GMOs   The Frankenstein Foods!

Unfortunately, GMO’s are NOT labeled on the foods we eat, but people are trying to change that. It should be our right to know, and we’re in support of the labeling process.

Our advice in avoiding GMOs revolve mainly around staying away from commercial-grade foods, and sticking to the real (and USDA certified) organic selections.

Eat organic as much as possible, know what you’re eating, consume REAL food – simple as that.

If you’re within the United States, look for this stamp

gmo organic 300x300 GMOs   The Frankenstein Foods!

Certified organic foods are typically not allowed to be altered (genetically speaking), so this is why we often recommend them. If you’re really looking to avoid all of those nasty GMOs, keep it organic, and REAL, as much as you can.

Your chances of avoiding GMOs will be more in your favor if you stick to eating higher quality food, but it’s also important to note that it’s possible for even some organic selections to have “modified” ingredients.

For example, soy is used in a lot of organic foods, and over 90% of the soy used in the United States is genetically modified. As far as it’s incorporation into organic foods, one can never be too sure. It’s a hard balancing act.

Do what you like with this information, as we are not here to persuade anyone – just want to promote a little awareness icon smile GMOs   The Frankenstein Foods!

Before you go, check out the studies we found below – pretty eye-opening!

    GMO’s are definitely bad, i have been trying to tell my husband about this stuff. i am going to force him to read this article…he just won’t agree with me, nice way of explaining everything. Two thumbs way up!

    • I disagree. GMOs are the best thing ever. You should rethink your life and become a scientist that studies GMOs like me

  5. as a agriculture student, organic farming is good to humanity, and in our environment, but we should be worried about the rapid growth of population' how can we feed the people if we don't do anything about it, are we gonna let the people die becaouse of hunger?

    Much of your article is speculation and your opinion. There is no scientific study behind any of those “disadvantages.” There are over 2000 studies on genetically modified organisms that tell that there are no hazards associated with these products. Many of the studies against genetically modified organisms are few to none, and all do not have any concrete scientific basis. For example, some “scientists” in France did a study with mice and fed them genetically modified food for a time, and many of them grew tumors. However, this study had MAJOR flaws. First, the mice were a breed that grows tumors normally in their life time. Secondly, these mice were overfed which increases the chances of tumors. Two major flaws can make the difference in a scientific case. Genetically modified food is new to the scientific world, but it is researched and studied without any evidence that it is unsafe for human consumption.

      I am from India.rag pickers eat purified meat;children drink utterly diluted milk;malnutrition is rampant;hunger is more rampant;well,u Americans can read the labels on the food;please let Indians have SOMETHING TO EAT. any how they r dying of hunger and cannot afford treatment to normally occurring rumors.if things r what u say,still let us have full stomachs and probably die of “tumors”.i don’t hunk u have ever been hungry and not have any thing to eat.i am writing this on an I pad…….so,why is GM. Food wrong

  25. Merely opposing is not enough , there could be vegetable like bromato in market .we have to think about priority , what to be taken first like food shortage , production of suspected crop , contaminated plant and animal food with pesticides. First we think of servival , to avoid situation like somalia and than luxry like organic foods.third world people have diffrent problems.

  26. GM technology is not going to stop and disappear. If we are unhappy with it then we need to find an alternative to GM foods. With the level of poverty in the world (especially Africa) and the huge income gap between the rich and poor i'm afraid all these cries are falling on deaf ears. If GM foods can produce more food at less expense then it will be planted and more technology thrown into it. Personally i'm not against GM foods, i think you are doing more harm to your body by eating a greasy Mac D burger than eating some GM corn or any other product!

  27. I hope you have studied your foods and started to eat more organic foods. If you were in severe poverty and offered GM foods will a tiny chance of it affecting your body(these negative effects have yet to actually be proven) or to not have food because its not organic which would you choose? This is the reason GM foods will become our future, not for you and me who can choose the food they eat but for the person who has none at all.
