This is difficult to avoid, as it is almost impossible to prevent bees and/or wind from spreading pollen from GMO crops to non-GMO farms. There is a definitive work that you can read to find out the dangers from a health perspective and from a corporate perspective (regarding “Frankenstein GMO’s and factory farming). It is entitled Seeds of Deception: Exposing Industry and Government Lies About the Safety of the Genetically Engineered Foods, by Jeffrey M. Smith.
The book was written in 2003 and contains a wealth of knowledge about GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms) crops and farming…giving the history behind the corporate movement and explaining how cross-pollinating occurs (as outlined above), giving the corporations “leverage” with which to take down small family farms.
Fortunately, there are champions to rely upon that will give us a “rallying flag” to regroup and wage this battle, uphill though it may seem. My good friend, Miss Tess Pennington, is one of those champions: a family woman of faith, honesty, and solid American values based on hard work and true pioneer spirit. She has shown us the way: there are numerous articles available at Ready Nutrition for your perusal on seed-saving and seed preservation that will be your “compass rose” to keep the harmful GMO crops from crossing your table. Ready Nutrition’s archives are full of the vital information you need: all of that information is right under your fingertips, waiting for you to read it.
Miss Tess recently began her own Heirloom Seed company! All you’ll have to do is send her an e-mail or post a comment, and she’ll be happy to give her advice that can help you to find the best way. Now is the time to become proactive with establishing your own greenhouse. A self-enclosed greenhouse will not only ensure protection of your produce from the elements but enable you to further shield and protect them from the cross-pollination previously discussed.
In our next installment in this 2-Part series, we will go into further detail about the dangers of GMO foods…how they affect our health and what effects they render on the human body. The fight against GMO crops and Agribusiness is an uphill battle, but you can win that battle right inside your own home. Being informed and aware is the first step, and the second is to take action on that information…by buying heirloom seeds, practicing seed-saving techniques, and boycotting unhealthy products by embracing a healthy lifestyle within your home and family. That’s what Ready Nutrition is all about, and Miss Tess and I both encourage you in these efforts. JJ out!
