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?

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 ...

Avoiding Neurotoxins

photo used under a creative commons license “A neurotoxin is a substance which inhibits the functions of neurons. Neurons are found throughout the brain and nervous system, and the function of these unique cells is critical for a variety of tasks, ranging from autonomic nervous system jobs like swallowing to higher-level brain function. Neurotoxins can work in a variety of ways, with the danger of exposure varying, depending on the neurotoxin involved and the dosage.” Neurotoxins can be found in nearly every processed food and beverage on grocery store shelves. This includes processed organic foods! The consumption of processed foods in the American diet are skyrocketing and shows no sign of slowing down. In 2010, Americans spent 90% of their ...
