Just days after a leading genetically modified organism (GMO) researcher spoke out against GMOs and how many pro-GMO ‘scientists’ are in bed with Monsanto or carry their own GMO patents, the largest managed healthcare provider in the United States is now publicly speaking out against GMOs. In a recent newsletter, the Kaiser Permanente company discussed the numerous dangers of GMOs in a recent newsletter and how to avoid them.

Explaining how GM ingredients have been linked to tumors and organ damage in rats in the only lifelong rat study available, the newsletter highlighted how the only real long- term research indicates that GMOs are a serious health danger. The newsletter, which you can view here, states:

“Despite what the biotech industry might say, there is little research on the long-term effects of GMOs on human health. Independent research has found several varieties of GMO corn caused organ damage in rats. Other studies have found that GMOs may lead to an inability in animals to reproduce.”

Top Health Giant Says Buy Organic for Proper Health

The newsletter then goes on to tell readers how they can avoid GMOs in their food through buying high quality organic and looking for other non-GMO indicators. It is important to remember the organic labeling meanings when shopping organic, however, which this newsletter unfortunately does not address. Make sure you know which ‘level’ of organic you are consuming:

  • Products labeled ‘100% organic’ – These items are made with 100% organic ingredients and are the highest quality organic products you can purchase. No GMOs are allowed.
  • Labeled ‘organic’ — These products are to contain at least 95% organic ingredients overall. Still no GMOs are allowed.
  • ‘Made with ‘organic ingredients’ — This is the lowest form of organic content. This label is only required to contain 70% organic ingredients, meaning that the remaining 30% can be conventional. The conventional items, however, are not allowed to contain GMOs. These products don’t qualify for the USDA seal, whereas the previous two do.

You can also look for the ‘Non-GMO Verified’ logo on food items to be sure that they are GMO free.

But why does a major corporation care that you are eating GMOs? Well the fact of the matter is that the research (and common sense — eating pesticide factories mixed with the DNA of viruses isn’t going to end well) indicates GMOs are causing problematic health conditions across the board. Of course the issue lies in the fact that GMOs are not immediately considered as a cause and actually influence disease through a series of complications that are not easy to trace. But as the only lifelong study has showed us, 50% of male and 70% of female rats died prematurely when consuming GMOs.

And the bottom line is that this is costing Kaiser Permanente. If members of the healthcare juggernaut were to switch to high quality organic foods free of GMOs, pesticides, mercury-containing high-fructose corn syrup, and artificial sweeteners, then Kaiser would be dishing out millions upon millions less for healthcare costs.

More and more organizations and individuals alike are speaking out against GMOs and the effects of GMO consumption as the evidence becomes more and more clear on a daily basis. Perhaps next time Monsanto tries to push a new outlandish creation into the food supply they will be met with crushing opposition thanks to a global increase in awareness.

It is only good that

It is only good that government is making its effort to oust those food and agricultural firm that are using GMO's food. Why they acted so late, and perhaps they need to thoroughly monitor this activities as other may still using it. If the government don't do any action, then it only claims that it helps those company from killing its people. Imagine how many people are into facilities with intensive health monitoring procedure because on the intake of GMO foods.

What? Did I actually get here

What? Did I actually get here before Kevin Follet, the resident GMO-Booster?

Would not be in the LEAST surprised if Kevin himself is one of the GMO-invested scientists who is complicit in standing up for his profits, er, Monsanto's planned monopoly on seed production...

At the clear expense of YOUR health, and MY health. Kevin's health? HE thinks it's SAFE to eat this stuff (plus, his PROFITS will "allow" him to beat the cancers when they happen to him too).

If you feel safe believing his tripe, go to it. I just hope YOU are rich too, because the cancer rate is growing as we speak.

Hi. I'm the mom of that

Slowly GMOs are getting the

Slowly GMOs are getting the scrutiny they deserve. I am convinced our health-care costs could be lowered substantially by just eliminating HFCS from our prepared foods. Go to '"NonGMOShoppingGuide.com" for help switching to organic foods.

COME ON,,,TELL THE

COME ON,,,TELL THE TRUTH...GMO,S ARE ANOTHER OF THE MANY GENOCIDE PROGRAMS THAT OUR GOV.BOYS SPEND OUR MONEY ON...GET WITH THE PROGRAM AN DIE EARLY,,OK...............
