Go Non-GMO

Hello, and thanks for your interest in going non-GMO! First and foremost, please check out my Organic/Non-GMO Restaurant Directory so you can maintain your non-GMO lifestyle when dining out. The directory includes organic and non-GMO cafés, delis, coffee/tea bars, specialty eateries, and even fine dining . . . right here in the Seattle-Metro area!

For those of you who don’t know the history behind GMOs (genetically modified organisms), they were introduced into our food supply—without our knowledge—back in the mid-1990s by a multibillion-dollar biotech company called Monsanto. And with a little help from the FDA, bioengineered foods like corn, soy, canola, and sugar beets quickly took hold of about 90 percent of our conventional U.S. crop. Animal and dairy products have also become a problem now that conventional farmers use genetically modified feed, while injecting their cows with the dangerous rBGH growth hormone, followed by the administering of antibiotics—what a mess!

As someone who has transcended Crohn’s disease naturally and holistically, learning how the long-term ingestion of GMOs had contributed to my health imbalance was a huge breakthrough for me. And although there were other factors contributing to my prior poor health, eliminating all GMOs from my diet and health regime played a major role in my transcendence of this disease. Going non-GMO also helped me to transcend all the food allergies and intolerances that had plagued me for years. I’m 48 years old, I’ve gone completely organic and non-GMO, and I’ve never felt better—or healthier—in my life!

So welcome to the “Non-GMO Food Movement,” as it is called. I hope you can use the resources on this page to learn what GMOs are, how to rid them from your diet, and how a non-GMO lifestyle can transform the state of your overall health! To find out more, please read on . . .

Wins!

  • Although I no longer purchase genetically modified “industry” foods, both Campbell’s and General Mills have announced they will begin labeling all of the GMO ingredients in their products nationwide. Additionally, industry brands like Nestle, Dannon, Del Monte, Hershey’s, Post, and several others are now hopping aboard the non-GMO train—helping to place the all-important “tipping point” in our favor. These are big wins where conventional industry foods and the Non-GMO Food Movement are concerned!
  • A federal judge recently upheld Jackson County, Oregon’s, GMO-ban when Monsanto-contracted farmers tried to overthrow it to plant GM alfalfa. Justice, how sweet it is!
  • More than 60 countries worldwide have either banned GMOs or put severe restrictions on how they are to be used. Hopefully the U.S. will soon follow suit!
  • To learn more, check out my new favorite organization and website, Center for Food Safety. You can also find important updates by visiting the Institute for Responsible Technology website.

FILM RECOMMENDATION, GENETIC ROULETTE (2012)

One of the most important films outlining the implications of long-term GMO intake is Genetic Roulette. This film offers an abundance of answers regarding the what, when, who, how, and why behind GMOs. Thank you Jeffrey M. Smith—this film changed my life!

FILM RECOMMENDATION, GMO OMG (2013)

Kudos to Jeremy Seifert for creating the powerful documentary, GMO OMG. One of the most riveting scenes is when Jeremy discovers that he can’t even catch a fish in a beautiful mountain lake without GMOs somehow being involved. GMO OMG opened my eyes to the work that must be done for the restoration of our plant diversity and food supply.
