Taking Care of Ourselves - What GMO Stands For
Do you know what GMO stands for? There was a huge furor a few years ago when some large corporations, like Monsanto particularly came out with patents for scientifically engineered seeds that they said was going to take care of feeding the world. There were many who saw dangers in that and fought to prevent those seeds from being sold to farmers. However, the big corporation Monsanto won, and so in some countries GMO corn, soy and wheat is grown.
GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organisms. That basically means that laboratories spliced the DNA for some plants with some other plants or animals, even viruses and bacteria - to create special traits or features in the succeeding generations of seeds. Their goal was to keep the seeds from being affected by weeds or diseases. Perhaps they also believed that if they filled junk food with GMO, people who insist on eating such stuff, would end up healthy in spite of themselves. (Ha! That has backfired!)
Some are saying that what GMO stands for is, Get Massively Obese.
Enough years have passed so that lab studies show what kind of effects GMO foods really have on rats. We only need to look around and see that the same effects are seen in people who eat the foods made with GMO foods. The results are worse than the opponents first dreamed.
No, you won't see cobs or corn in the supermarket with obvious signs of GMO all over them. The GMO crops are turned into high fructose corn syrup which is a main ingredient in just about every single processed food on our dear planet. Particularly in soda. The GMO corn is used to make snack chips and crackers, and the corn oil and soybean oil you use in your kitchen for baking, frying, whatever. Because labels do not have to say which ingredients have GMO sources, you may have no clue.
That is until you see the results in your body!
The lab results show that rats given the GMO foods grow obese fairly quickly, and they eat more and more. It only took 90 days to see these dramatic results in a study done in Norway. There is also a chain reaction effect, for when the fat rats at fish that had been raised on GMO corn, the rats got obese more quickly. What's more, they lost the ability to digest proteins and they experienced immune response system changes that did not happen if they ate other fish.
The studies on humans are not in yet, but just look around you; who do you see eating junk food and getting extremely obese, and having immune deficiency problems? Who seems to be constantly hungry, no matter how much they eat?
Has this been happening to you at an alarming rate? Are you feeling you are caught in a trap you can never get out of? Perish the thought. let's hope not!
But it is obvious that obesity rates are sky-rocketing, and more and more are diagnosed with autoimmune diseases and a number of food sensitivities. It cannot be coincidence.
What else to do about GMO Foods:
Learn to recognize them and avoid such food as MUCH as possible, be particulary careful with processed foods - ready cooked, so you can eat it right away, or just warm up in the microwave. By law organic food is labelled, "Organic". If it is not, we can assume that it has GMO ingredients.
Learn to cook raw fruits and vegetables or eat them raw. But wash them well first.
Buy organic if you can possibly afford it. At least foods that you will eat skin and all, such as grapes, peppers, lettuce, cucumbers.
If cost is a problem, look for fruits and vegetables that you will be peeling. If they have been sprayed you can avoid most of the chemicals that way.
If you know you have been eating GMO foods, try to get your digestive tract cleansed and replace the good bateria with healthy probotics. Hopefully you will be able to recover your health.
Work at losing any excess weight - it will only contribute to more health issues if you keep it.
Remember, you can't sue anyone for your health problems. It is up to you to make the right decisions, and if you make the wrong ones and fall into bad health - you have to pay the costs that arise from that. That's the bottom line.
So make a decision to choose your food carefully, cleanse your body, and then build it up with exercise and sensible, self-controlled eating of good, clean foods.
If you are starting to believe that what GMO stands for is truly - Getting Massively Obese, I hope it scares you into avoiding that condition.
P.S. Revelation chapter 6, in the Bible speaks of a scarcity wheat and oil in the end times. I'm just wondering if GMO foods will have a hand in bringing that to pass.
A Practical Tip/Solution - Jelly Belly
You want to get rid of that Jelly Belly, right? That's why you click on those ads that promise to show you how to get rid of your protruding belly, isn't it?
Aerobic dancing won't do it.
What will get rid of that jelly belly?
You need to eliminate sugars and refined, starchy carbohydrates. These "bad boys" stir up inflammation, feed lurking cancer cells, keep you hungry, and start up diabetes and heart disease.
Instead, hunt up and eat real foods like raw vegetables, proteins, (poultry, fish, eggs), and healthy fats, like butter, olive oil, coconut oil, olives and nuts.
Fruit that is raw and fresh is good, but turns into sugar too, so keep to a limit, and eat mostly berries.
Get enough sleep!
Reduce stress as much as possible.
Exercise helps with that, and burns calories too. Interval training is considered very helpful. Simply speed up your exercise for 30 seconds to the most you can do, then slow down to a restful pace, for a while, so you are not panting, then speed up again for 30 seconds. Repeat up to 8 times as you build up endurance. This will burn away fat, and change your hormone requirements, to make it easier.
I Recommend - No, I'm Asking You . . .
Instead of recommending something here, I'm asking you a question. Do you find the issues of this ezine too long? Should I reduce it to just one article per issue?
You see, I've been learning more abour doing business online, and reading that people don't like to read long emails, or ezines. The shorter the better.
Hmm... originally I had learned that it should be like a digital magazine (from which we get the word, ezine). So I thought limiting it to three items was being quite easy on readers.
On the other hand, I have become busy with many things, so it often takes me a month of Mondays to get the Aloe Vera Tips & Solutions ready. If you, my readers, indicate that you would prefer a shorter ezine, I am willing to switch to just one article and perhaps a P.S. when I have something good to recommend to you.
Would you be so kind as to hit Reply and just indicate in a word or two, whether you would like this ezine to be shorter, or keep it as it is. (Feel free to delete the rest of this ezine below your answer, as of course, I'm quite familiar with it).
Then, if interest is shown in a change, that will take place with the next issue, which is to be the first Monday of January - that is January 2.
Oh this reminds me to wish you a very Merry Christmas, and a Blessed and Happy New Year!
Blessings & Thanks!
