GMOs – explained in one minute

Have you ever sat with someone who had an inquisitive ear (of corn?) and you’ve tried to explain what scientists are doing to our food to create genetically modified organisms?

If you’ve ever struggled to keep that explanation under 5 minutes, I hear ya.

Watch this one-minute excerpt from the Genetic Roulette movie for a pear-ed down explanation.

    This makes me so sad, it’s science gone very bad. Brings to mind the old saying, “just because you can, doesn’t mean you should”. Thank you for bringing this out into the public awareness zone & reminding everyone just what’s at stake.

    These latest discussions here about GMOs have helped me understand it even better. Thanks Mary Jane for sharing all of the information lately. Greatly appreciated!

    I loved this. Thank you Mary Jane for sharing once again with all of us! I have terrible allergic reactions to GMO products. I’ve always thought that my reaction to beef was in direct relation to all the pesticides, etc. Thank goodness that we garden, can, freeze, hunt & fish. On a similar note, my grandgirl was diagnosed with copper poisoning last year from the water in their town of Columbus, IN. She ended up in the ER when her vomit was blue. The ER docs called the CDC for more information to help her. The CDC told the docs that with all the pesticides & herbicides running off from the farms into community wells, it is no wonder. The worst states are Indiana & Iowa. She now drinks only purified water including at school.

    I heard a few weeks ago (on a cooking show!) that the pesticide GMOs in corn cause the insects who bite into it to intestinally explode. And I wondered, “Is this why I often have an upset stomach after eating tortillas, especially?” So, I completely cut corn out of my diet and only let a bit of organic back into it recently. And, yes! I feel super again.
    This video really supports my theory!
    Terry, I’m so sorry about your granddaughter; we live in farm country, too, and have a whole house water filter for our “city” water, which is, frankly, disgusting!
