I really like achcronyms but, when people use them without defining them, it makes it difficult to understand what they are talking about. I just learned a new acrocnym today : GMO, Genetically Manipulated Organism. Sounds SciFi, doesn't it?
First, I'm posting this information because I believe most people don't know what GMO stands for. Secondly, I'm determined to bring a little understanding "to the table" so that, as consumers, we can become a little more educated to what the food issue are that are facing us today that could, possibly, have serious consequences with our quality of life and our very health.
A standard to determine what is truely good food which is actually healthy for you and provides you with optimum benefits, in addition to good taste, is to remember, you are what you eat. If we ingest nutritionally empty, toxic laden or molecularly incompatible substances that are pawned off as "food", we will reap the results of poor health, premature death and a diminished quality of performance of mind and body.
Of course, I am, by no means, an expert to speak in the field of food nutrition. But, I am a concerned food consumer that is extremely concerned with the quality of the food supply in the United States of America and the poor quality of health that seems to inflict so many needlessly, rendering them helpless victims to the explotation of the pharmaceutical industry.
So, here are some links that might get you to thinking and to do your own research that will help you to form your own opinions and beliefs as to the food supply chain and it's relationship to the health industry.
When Roland and I met, I was one of those people who opened the box or can and warmed up the family meal. After our marriage in 2005, I truely began to appreciate what food is really about, not only that it can taste very good, and be nutritious, but that it can be a celebration of who you are and the people that you share it with.
