How Many GMOs Are You Eating?

How Many GMOs Do You Think You Are Eating?

Did you know that most Americans eat their weight in genetically modified organisms (GMOs) each year? The Environmental Working Group (EWG) calculated that the average adult American annually consumes genetically engineered foods in these quantities: 68 pounds of beet (table) sugar, 58 pounds of corn syrup, 38 pounds of soybean oil, and 29 pounds of corn-based products, for a total of 193 pounds per year. In other words, most U.S. adults consume more than their weight in GMO foods. It may be that children consume even more, relatively speaking. Around the world, GMOs are considered so dangerous that they are banned, or at the very least heavily regulated and labeled, so informed citizens can avoid them. In the U.S. they are ...
The Blame Game

The Food is at Fault!

We tend to blame the victims of disordered eating, no matter what form it takes. Binge Eating Disorder, Bulimia, Emotional Eating and Obesity are all assumed to be the result of poor choices and/or emotional disturbances that lead to over eating. Anorexia is often perceived as a choice the patient makes to achieve cosmetic improvements. The eating problems plaguing Americans are the direct result of the deficiencies and toxins in the food supply and are not the result of implusive choices or vanity. The Big Pharma complex, industrial farming, and the food and beverage industries, (I call them Big Pharma, Big Farming and Big Food or the 3 Big Pigs) have worked hard to convince us that our foods, beverages ...

How Visual Cues Affect the Amount of Food We Consume.

Sifu Renka/Creative Commons license A study completed at Cornell University examined whether visual cues (as they relate to portion size) could influence the amount of food participants ate, without altering estimated food intake or satiation. The study involved 54 participants between the ages of 18-46 with varying BMIs. The participants were divided into two groups; one group was given a bowl of soup in a normal bowl, the other group was given a bowl of soup in a self-refilling bowl. The self-refilling bowls were hooked up to a hose from underneath the table; the bowl would slowly refill as the participant ate. Participants eating from the self-refilling bowl consumed 73% more soup than those participants eating from the normal bowl. ...
