If you are like I am you want to know what you are eating is clean food, not GMO or worse..I didn’t think worse than GMO existed until I read this excerpt from the website, wheatbellyblog.com.
I struggle to understand why corporations need to recreate what nature has already perfected, why is it necessary to have a pesticide resistant seed that unfortunately is harming the health of millions of people. As a practicing colon hydrotherapist I have seen the damage and continue to see the damage to many individuals who unsuspectingly have chosen to “eat wheat” thinking it was going to help them with their digestive complaints. Sadly the opposite has happened, their health complaints increased and they were dumfounded to find out it was the “expensive loaf of wheat bread” they were buying that is a major contributor. The excerpt goes further into why this is happening.
This is the reason why I have my ORGANIC BUYING GROUP. If you are not aware of where your food is coming from you can and will be a target for these corporations to fool you into thinking your “food” that is UNLABELLED that you are eating is really good for you….I beg to differ.
THE HEALTHY DIVA
EXCERPT…The commercialized form of American wheat may be even worse for your health than popular genetically modified (also known as GMO or genetically modified organisms) crops such as non-organic corn, soy, cottonseed, canola and sugar beets.
Much of the United States’ wheat is actually the product of something called “chemical mutagenesis” according to the blog, which is the purposeful induction of mutations using chemicals.
Clearfield wheat, a semi-dwarf strain now grown on one million acres, is the chief type according to the article, and it’s created with the help of an industrial compound known as sodium azide used to induce the mutations. A certain gene is also provoked and selected in order to make it resistant to high levels of herbicides, similar to the process engineered into GMO crops.
The massive chemical company BASF holds the patent for this type of wheat, which a recent report from Earth Open Source notes that the breeding, which is radiation-induced, is potentially even more mutagenic than GMO creation techniques. The report goes on to say that such crops should be at least as regulated as GMO crops, but of course that isn’t the case yet. They continue to go into food products unlabeled and unsuspecting, potentially adding to Americans’ already mounting health problems even further at a time when many people believe they’re doing the right thing by switching to wheat over white bread.
This could be yet another reason why people have actually experienced health problems as a result of eating wheat instead of seeing their health improve. In addition to large amounts of gluten that is extremely hard for many people to digest, these mutations may be causing unknown side effects.
Mutated, worse than GMO wheat just the latest, greatest “hit”
The future of “food” is almost here, and it’s a scary one indeed if this new type of wheat and other lab-created monstrosities are allowed to continue to the market unlabeled.
Among the latest, greatest pending abominations include: “Agent Orange corn,” a GMO salmon, and even meat synthesized from feces.
