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.
I usually get organic strawberries, but I wasn't at the health food store so I just picked up some regular old strawberries and I found this: http://i46.tinypic.com/xkmz55.jpg http://i45.tinypic.com/24nfy42.jpg (more)
Has anyone read that the FDA has approved the first GMO animal? They have okay a GMO super salmon to be farmed. I work in the fish oil industry (wild) and this is scary to me beyond the implications on diet it's a slippery slope in the GMO world... (more)
I'm trying to implement some of the ideas in The Perfect Health Diet (P.H.D.) and want to switch my sweetener to one that doesn't have fructose. I found this... (more)
Have you seen the rats? http://www.naturalnews.com/037249_gmo_study_cancer_tumors_organ_damage.html Use honey or fruits (very ripe bananas) they are nutrient dense sweeteners as opposed to dextrose and due to the fiber in bananas they don't spike... (more)
This upset me: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/22/business/gene-altered-fish-moves-closer-to-federal-approval I really wish those Liberals over at the FDA wouldn't just green-light every dumb idea that was thrown on their desk. Does this represent... (more)
I have the opportunity to make a presentation for my college class on toxicity. Most likely none of the student know what true health is. I am going to talk to them about toxic house hold products, personal care products, water, medication, food... (more)
Did anyone see the recent Mercola post about the meta-analysis done by Stanford claiming that Organic food has no benefits? It raised an interesting point I hadn't heard before: The Department of Homeland Security are increasingly looking into... (more)
Been paleo for a few months now, but recently i had some corn at a family dinner and it's like i fell in love with it all over again. Corn is one of those neolithic foods that i actually miss, along with sweet peas and white rice. What's so bad... (more)
A friend of mine posted this to her facebook a bit ago http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/13/business/growers-fret-over-a-new-apple-that-wont-turn-brown.html and quite frankly, it's got me worried. You can check which food is organic by making sure... (more)
Is it possible for you to get organic apples? They are part of the dirty dozen list. Otherwise, I believe GMO fruits and/or veggies will have a number that begins with 8 instead of 4 for regularly produced and 9 for organics.
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'm starting to worry more and more about the processing of and modifications made to my food. I think most (but not all) of my undesireable food reactions come from the isolation of certain molecules used to enhance flavors or increase... (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.
