Wow, technology. There's a startup that will be using 3D printing technology and the stem cells of animals to create "meat." Theoretically, meat could be produced with a much more minimal strain on the environment, and, one would think, at lower... (more)
I mean, WTH? I had no idea grass, GRASS, was genetically modified. This is so disturbing. http://www.foodrenegade.com/mutated-gmo-grass-makes-cyanide-kills-cattle-2/ Just when you think you have it all worked out, there's something else to... (more)
Apparently, Dow has developed a plant-based cellulose that mimics gluten attributes and helps gluten-free bread, pasta and dough taste more like the real thing. It is a little unclear what this actually is but it looks like it might be some sort... (more)
I wondered if any of you are planning to support the activities of this or other, related organizations. Many local small farmers went to congress and testified against GMOs in December. I learned that Monsanto has been reported to grow GMO... (more)
A team at China???s Agricultural University has managed to get human breast milk from cows. Yep. Through genetic modification, researchers inserted ???human genes into cloned cow embryos which were then implanted into surrogate... (more)
I'm going to assume you're not really asking whether this is paleo. It's from GMO cows, afterall. The real question is whether this is a better alternative than formula for those who cannot breastfeed.
http://www.kerrygold.co.uk/index.php?p=faqs,3 Are Kerrygold Packet and Softer Butters organic? No, the milk used in our products is not guaranteed organic. it isnt organic. Do Kerrygold Packet and Softer Butters contain any genetically... (more)
GMO Fruits, Veggies and ...yes Salmon...lately it hit that since I've haven't been eating Grains, Dairy and Legumes, that I'm basically eating genetically modified garbage... Ever feel like you've left one evil for another.
Do genetically modified foods in general violate any particular Paleo principle? I recognized that there is an enormous potential for genetic technology to be abused and cause enormous harm, but on the other hand it also seems that this technology... (more)
Been reading more and more about our food supply. About Monsanto, seed patents, and GMO food. I already avoid wheat, soy , and corn.. On nutritional basis, but their GMO status is just as scary to me, if not scarier. Just like those mutant... (more)
How bad is canola oil? Most canola oil is genetically modified. Some is processed using hexane. But it is possible to obtain organic (not genetically modified) canola that is made using only pressure and mild heat (around 100 degrees F which is... (more)
I was reading a fascinating tale about this famous scientist who researches lectins, who was unjustly fired for doing an experiment finding intestinal damage from GMO potatoes. The consipiracy may have reached up to Monsanto and Bill... (more)
http://gawker.com/5622330/you-could-be-eating-this-frankenfish-in-18-months The normal salmon is the smaller one , of course. Hey, America: Time to get excited! Why? Because a year and a half from now you could be eating the very first... (more)
Has anyone been reading/watching what Monsanto is trying to do with our food supply? They already have patents on most of the world's soy supply. Most seeds used today also have patents on them? Is there really any food that we eat today that... (more)
I am getting really sad that so many paleo people are spouting this anti GMO garbage, even on this site. Things like golden rice and GMO's are in desperate need to feed the thousands of starving (mostly people of colour) around the world and... (more)
Here's the link: http://documentaryheaven.com/seeds-of-death/ Now, I LOVE science. I'm also a big fan of genetic engineering. So far I may have deluded myself into not worrying too much about GMO in the food supply. But this isn't about... (more)
I am Very new to Paleo and actually started Paleo after hearing about Wheat Belly and how bad GMO wheat is. My question is about organic/ NON GMO wheat, is that wheat still bad for you and if so how and why?
If you are absolutely going to eat wheat (which I'd advise against), fermented bread products (like sourdough) are the best. The bacteria break down a significant amount of the proteins, lectins, etc.
Hi, I have eaten Bell and Evans chicken for a long time as I thought it was better and more natural than buying regular grain fed. They have this on their packaging: All Vegetable Diet Raised Without Antibiotics No Animal By-Products No Growth... (more)
Since most corn is GMO, probably. Since they don't specifically advertise as non-GMO, probably. Since it is Kirkland brand, probably. Corn is a grain anyways so isn't technically Paleo. Short Answer: Probably.
I've lately been trying to persuade my family to stop drinking soymilk, to which my family is highly addicted. I've been trying to explain that soymilk is high in phytoestrogens, but my brother insists that it's only GMO soybeans that are high in... (more)
I ate pasta made only from rice flour and non gmo corn. I ended up having a lot of stomach pain that lasted from 8 at night to 7:30 the next morning. Grains are still grains even if non gmo.
How sustainable is this diet for your typical American pauper? Would a 90% vegetarian diet consisting of mostly plant foods w/ some meat be more sustainable or less sustainable? Is CAFO meat worse than GMO soy, or are they both likely to be just... (more)
You could go for the Irish approach - potatoes and milk. Add some free range eggs, sardines and occasional ground beef and liver and you're pretty much there. (Assuming you're ok with potatoes and dairy.)
