Celi at The Kitchen’s Garden expressed concern over being on a rant today.
Her “rant” is essential. We need to become informed and independent producers of our own food and/or be willing to support those who work diligently to produce food that nourishes our bodies naturally.
Here’s Celi’s welcome excerpt:
“Also Genetically Modified crops have been reconfigured to be pest and round up resistant. So a farmer can spray less. This is good right? But they do not produce fertile nutritious pollen. The seed in a Genetically Modified crop is designed to terminate, so a farmer cannot collect and grow his seed, he has to reorder seed from the Big Lobby M company. So what of the pollen? The dramatic rise in these GM pollens on a graph, directly dogs the decline in bee numbers. As GM crops rise so do bee numbers decline. None of these crops need bees as a pollinator. Of course as usual no-one really wants to know this. Round-Up ready crops are big business and they don’t need bees anyway. But bees do need the good stuff. So if you have a spot to plant a tree that has flowers for bees then you are directly helping the bees gain back some ground lost to industrial farming, sprays and dandelion free lawns.
Also I might add that the GM corn is causing a dismaying decline in the fertility of cattle too. So it is in your beef, pork and corn syrup and soy milk, etc. Now what is that doing to OUR health? This is something that has never been researched. And this is why I do not eat or drink processed foods and I grow my own grass fed beef and milk.”
Awareness is the only way out of this quagmire of modified substances and practices. Our best strategy for health is to override the companies who have taken control of our food production. Let’s deem them unessential.
“You know, I do think we are starting to reclaim our food and food system. Little by little. I just think of the work that people like T. Colon Campbell and others are doing … and there’s posts like yours on the internet … and just a lot going on. Some of my friends who have yards are growing a lot more food than they used to. (Of course, the time is there now with retirement. I’m sure that’s a factor.) Today in Whole Foods I note they are promoting a book called “Reclaiming Our Food.” Hopeful. http://www.amazon.com/Reclaiming-Our-Food-Grassroots-Movement/dp/1603427996/ref=sr_1_sc_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1332320062&sr=8-1-spell “
