Genetically modified foods are foodstuffs produced from genetically modified organisms (GMO) that have had their genome altered through genetic engineering. The most common modified foods are derived from plants: soybean, corn, canola and cotton seed oil and wheat.
For me, splicing animal proteins into our food supply is just not a good thing to do. THere is a reason this has not happened naturally in nature… because it’s not supposed to be that way. What makes man think he can do this himself successfully and without harmful effects is pure bullshit.
In this lecture, Jeffrey Smith, author of Seeds of Deception, summarizes the contents of his book, which explains how genetically modified foods cause health problems, and their potential for creating a vast array of unforeseen and surprising illnesses. He also sheds light on how the corruption within the U.S. government, the FDA, and the GMO industry has allowed, and perpetuated, the cover-up.

Seeds of Deception, the explosive exposé by Jeffrey M. Smith, documents significant health dangers of genetically modified (GM) foods and the intense industry influence and political corruption that allow them on the market. Hailed as the best book on the topic, many believe that the revelations in this book can topple an industry.
Some Ingredients That May Be Genetically Modified
