In the spring of 2009, I became a vegetarian. It seemed like an impossible change in the beginning, but it actually got easier and easier the longer I stuck with it. I’m at the point where I don’t think I could eat a piece of chicken or a hamburger again. I don’t even like to touch meat. I’m proud of myself for making a positive change that will benefit my health while also decreasing support for factory farms where animals are often treated worse than a pile of garbage.
Now the time has come again for another drastic change in my diet. With the recent protests and talk of GMOs, I finally decided today that it’s time to switch to a non-GMO diet. I feel bad for not making this change years ago, and I have no idea what kind of damage has been done to my body because of it. I guess what is most important right now is that I have made the decision to do what I can to stop poisoning my body. I’m sure it will be an adjustment, but I feel the same kind of commitment now that I did back in 2009 to go veggie.
If you’ve researched non-GMO foods and brands, you know how short that list is. All the major food companies are producing GMO foods. The government made claims that GMOs help produce larger yields, which means that more people would be fed. There has been no evidence to suggest that this is true. The reality is that GMOs have not been researched enough, so there is no way of knowing their impact on human health. What we might actually have here is an effort to ruin people’s health and to reduce the population. We live in a scary world where the government takes little responsibility to look out for its people. Is this GMO thing all about money, or is there something much more sinister going on with this push to get all countries to grow GMO crops?
Readers, have any of you adopted a non-GMO diet or is this something you haven’t put much thought into?
