I wasn’t planning to make political issues quite so up front…and after this wee rant I’ll be focusing for several weeks on detoxification: spring tonics and cleansing herbs, essential oils for detox, supplements that support our bodies’ natural detoxification processes, heavy metals in the body and fasting. Since springtime is traditionally when folks shifted gears from “winter diet” to more fresh foods, it is also a good time to start detoxification programs. Since there is a lot of misinformation and confusion on this vast subject, I hope to add some clarity.
GMO stands for genetically modified organism. There is a plethora of good info on the internet about why this bit of modern–day lab work is not such a hot idea once all the ramifications are fully explored. But what most folks don’t realize is the extent to which our food supply is already deeply “contaminated,” both deliberately and inadvertently. Most folks, myself included, don’t think they have eaten anything GMO, or maybe very little. However, the latest research shows that almost 90% of Americans have eaten GMO foods, and in alarmingly high amounts.
So what does this have to do with health? you ask. There is a previously unknown pathogen with unique physical properties: a micro-fungus. It is found in high concentrations in Roundup Ready (GMO) soybean meal and corn, and is linked to outbreaks of plant diseases and implicated in animal reproductive failure. The researcher is COL (retired) / Dr. Don Huber, one of the nation’s senior soil scientists, and Emeritus Professor, Purdue University.

…remembering that we humans are animals, the very mammals this article is talking about…
