GMOs: Are They That Bad?
You know, I get teased at work for being a "Hippie." But for anyone who really knows me...I'm not. For one, I'm not into the "Free Love" and drugs. Two, I own a pair of leather boots which I'm actually wearing right now. Three, I don't think I own anything made from Hemp. And four, I believe in a down-to-earth approach when it comes to medicine. There are great advancements and benefits in the medical field. There are also great health-promoting things for us when it comes to diet and natural care. On the flip-side, I believe in vaccines, Nyquil, and Tylenol (I try to steer clear of Advil or Ibuprofen because it causes ulcers).
GMOs. Are they really that bad? Is organic produce really all that different?
The answer is two words: Heck. Yes.
Most of what I'd say is said by The Plant-Based Dietitan, so I'm first of all going to link you to her blog post here. There is a scripture (verse 4) in the Word of Wisdom that says, "In consequence of evils and designs which do and will exist in the hearts of conspiringmen in the last days, I have warned you, and forewarn you, by giving unto you this word of wisdom by revelation."
But everywhere we turn we are bombarded by ads.
"Beef: It's what's for dinner"
"Pork: The other white meat"
"The Incredible Edible Egg"
"Eat More Chikin" (Sorry Chik-fil-A, your sandwhiches are very good, but very bad)
