    Genetically modified food can cause allergies and no help to your muscles or health. Avoid Corn ... as "...virtually no corn growing anywhere remains pure, as contaminating pollen from their (Monsanto) Frankenspecies is unable to be contained. The evolution of millions of years has been permanently impacted.

    Most rice are genetically altered unfortunately. Read more on why they cause allergies... My stomach hurts when I eat rice ... I used to be able to eat it...:And ..........Watch out for tomatoes that have... pig genes.icon_mad.gif

    I've been hearing on and off about GMOs for a minute and I admit it's pretty scary reading about the long term effects. It's disconcerting that veggies that you thought were healthy to eat can be harming you due to these added GMO's. It would be impossible it seems to eliminate them completely as almost 100% of restaurants are likely using some kind of GMO product and of course ensuring GMO free foods means spending more cash.

    Sure we're all going to die eventually but we shouldn't be slowly killed by foods that are supposedly healthy. Yuck. icon_evil.gificon_evil.gif

    We've had this discussion before. I don't think you help your cause by exaggerating - the idea that GMO food is "no help to your muscles or health" is silly.

    You may fear the potential dangers of GMO food but for the most part they are mere potentialities.

    Not that I defend Monsanto by any means, but that list is a lie.

    Paleo + mostly organic everything = win.

    Sure, it's expensive as fuck, but the difference in my health since doing this (for the past 2+ years) is astronomical.

    I BELIEVE EVERYTHING IN HERE BECAUSE A JPG'S WORD IS LAW.

    Here's a hint: Calling it something scary like "Frankenfood" is a dead giveaway that you're not a credible source.

    edit: omg this stupidity can't be left so small, let's blow it up for everyone's critical thinking ability to see.

    Nearly every plant you find in a nursery has been patented. People mix pollen from one species to another and a new hybrid seed is grown. "Natural" gardeners have been doing this forever without turning into zombies.

    this is mostly asinine.

    the pesticide-free benefits of organic foods make them worth the extra bucks (IMO) but the fact that they are GMO free does not. Adding a few genes to a strain of fruit that cause it to grow larger, be hardier, and resist predation (and thus reducing the amount of pesticides needed to protect the crop) do not make it inherently unsafe and there is not really any good reason to make that assumption.

    (or speculate based on the harmful nature of "trans fats".... I don't really get that argument, trans fats are totally unrelated to GMO??)

    Of course, technically, these are called lies.

    A friend of mine provided me with some interesting information last week. On those little labels glued onto the fruit and vegetables is a code.

    If the code is 4 digits and in the 3000 and 4000 range, that means conventionally produced.

    If the code is 5 digits starting with a 9, that means organic.

    Genetically modified is a 5 digit code starting with an 8.

    My grandaddy was a farmer in the old south and if he was alive today, I am sure he would never use these genetically modified seeds.

    I don't think they sell them fresh in grocery stores here yet.

    But thanks for the tip, I'm anxious to try one!

    I prefer to keep my distance from them if at all possible.

    All food is "genetically engineered".

    What do you think selective breeding is?

    Were it not for scientifically improved food stocks, several billion people would just die off.

    All these hysterical "frankenfood" weirdos are pretty selfish if they don't volunteer first to off themselves for the cause.

    I like you icon_smile.gif


    Also, @yourname2000, really? Growing your own food is the highest form of protest? Come on. I have a number of good friends that are big into organic farming, raise their own livestock, and even help set-up organic farmers, but even they would call what you're saying ridiculous.

    I wonder why in this day and age people are still even at all interested in industrialised foods... I have never heard a single good thing about them

    I remember coming across videos on Netflix that introduced me to GMO's. While it's scary it shouldn't consume anyone to the point of not functioning or eating. Select organics when you can afford it and just be smart about your food selections in the produce section.

    And grow your own food if possible. This is one thing I'm looking forward to when I get my own house one day.
