When I recently wrote GM Food Awareness I wanted to give my readers more information about what foods are genetically modified and how it is becoming increasingly difficult to avoid these genetically modified foods, especially here in the United States. I am sad to say that I recently read an article that exposes what would appear to be more corruption when it comes to Monsanto and Washington. According to the article, President Obama recently pushed to deregulated genetically modified alfalfa and sugar beets in the United States.
In my previous post I mentioned the three biggest GM foods being corn, soybeans, and canola made it very difficult to avoid GMOs in the average American diet. With the addition of alfalfa and sugar beets to the list of genetically modified organisms Americans will soon feel the tightening grip of Monsanto’s strangle hold upon our food supply. The excerpts below, taken from the article, show just how alarming the GM crisis is becoming. Soon, Americans will be faced with no choice but to consume genetically modified foods. I hope you will take the time to read the articles in the links I have provided and also share this information with friends and family.
Sugar beets provide over 50 percent of the sugar Americans use in their coffee, cereals, and desserts. For the moment, let’s not focus on the fact that sugar beets can cross-pollinate with red beets and make our borscht genetically modified.
Alfalfa reaches our tables within milk, cream, butter, and meat, as it is used as a major animal feed in the dairy industry. It is also used to enrich soils in organic farming.
