GMOs: An Introduction

Ok, we’ve all heard it before: Americans are in an interesting spot right now. We collectively have the largest military in the world, the largest people in the world, the largest debt in the world. We have all heard about our struggling educational system and we all battle with consternation about how the government is run. In a country that simply cannot agree about what to do with itself, I find it interesting the things that slip in through the cracks – things like into our food supply. With conditions like ADD and clinical depression sky-rocketing past previous records, who is in charge of our country’s collective health? With chronic conditions related to lack of exercise, over-stimulation, under-stimulation, malnutrition and previously unseen numbers of food allergies, one views the current situation and feels overwhelmed.

 

One of the many questions that comes to my mind is which of these issues relates to GMOs. It’s so easy to say the things that have already been said – on either side of the opinion-line. Boring. What I want to know is: What are they? How safe are they? What would it take to determine them safe? Have those protocols been determined and tested? Should standards be universal? Why ARE they different in the U.S. than in other countries/regions? What do the companies that manufacture these products have to gain from their product being on the market?


That’s a lot of questions, but I want to answer them throughout time… It’s a broad subject and I think with some beautiful, delicious knowledge and effort, we can find out. Stay tuned. 😉
