Happy Thanksgiving

Celebrating our National Non-GMO Movement


A young woman came up to me at a Cambridge bookstore just before my presentation. “I heard you on Coast to Coast radio last year,” she said. “You changed my life.” No one had ever said anything like that to me before. I was deeply touched.

That was 2004. It was just 8 months since launching Seeds of Deception and I had already toured five continents. I didn’t know it at the time, but I was just getting started. And I would meet countless others whose lives were also transformed by the truth about genetically modified (GM) foods. 

The world today is quite different than when I started out as a non-GMO road warrior. Most Americans had said they would avoid genetically modified organisms if labeled, but now millions are no longer waiting. They’re actively seeking non-GMO foods. And many are enthusiastically getting the word out to others.

As a personal thank you, I wanted to share a few stories from this year’s travels in the US about individuals whose commitments to non-GMO eating were inspired by rather compelling circumstances.

Non-GMO Doctoring

I spent some time at the medical practices of two Chicago area doctors who, like many I know, prescribe non-GMO diets to everyone. The doctors had told me that taking people off of GM foods is a very important part of health and healing, but I didn’t appreciate the full extent of it until I spoke with their patients. One after the other they described chronic symptoms that quickly improved or disappeared after changing their diets—skin conditions, irritable bowel, migraines, weight problems, fatigue, and much more.

At the end of my interviews I asked one of the doctors, “Where did you first learn about the health impacts of GMOs?” She smiled, “From you.” I held back tears.

The patients I interviewed had avoided GMOs by switching to organic food; some had also eliminated processed foods and/or specific food categories, so it was not clear how much of the improvements were based on avoiding GMOs versus other healthy changes. Soon after the visit, however, I came across other folks where the impact of a non-GMO diet was not ambiguous at all.

Animals on the Mend

These were veterinarians and farmers who had taken livestock&mdashigs and cows—off of GMO feed. What do you suppose happened? Death rates dropped, still born rates were down, litter size was up, and overall health improved. One farmer was ecstatic about the huge increase in milk production in his herd; another described how healthy his pigs looked—even down to reduced blood shot eyes.

The vets I spoke with had all been in practice long before 1996, when GMOs were introduced. Each had his stories about the surge in diseases and disorders after GM feed came on the scene. One told me that the jump in dog and cat allergies correlated exactly with the introduction of GM pet food. Whenever he switched his allergic animals to an organic (non-GMO) brand, their symptoms such as itching would usually disappear. Others described inflammation, infections, and gastrointestinal disorders.

Both vets and farmers saw differences inside GM-fed animals during autopsies or butchering, including liver damage, stomach ulcers, discoloration, and an awful stench. One farmer said that after seeing the alterations inside GM-fed animals, he and his wife started a strict non-GMO policy for their family’s meat.

(Apparently the vets who started their practices after GMOs entered the food supply consider all these problems normal.)

A Movement of Non-GMO Eaters and Feeders

Although some might dismiss these stories as “anecdotal,” the doctors, patients, vets, and farmers do not. Nor do the two autism organizations I visited, who now specify a non-GMO diet as part of the treatment protocol. These are just a few examples of the informed individuals, families, and organizations around the nation who are getting the message loud and clear—GMOs are NOT healthy.

We now have a movement in America. A BIG ONE! Thanks to you, we’re a force of nature—like the Earth’s immune system—a vast network rejecting dangerous genetically modified organisms. We will soon reach our goal—the tipping point of consumer rejection—which will force GMOs out of the market.

To respond to this new movement, our Institute is making some significant shifts—which I will tell you about very soon. But I wanted to take this opportunity to share these stories and to thank you for being part of this historic movement.

Much love and happy holidays, 

Jeffrey

"Addiction to prescription painkillers — which kill thousands of Americans a year — has become a largely unrecognized epidemic, experts say.

This story indicates how silly the current news is largely propoganda; particularly about the H1N1 swine flu. Ok, so 1,000 people died...Is that a reason to panic and have news about it, day after day, for months at a time?
56,000 a year die from seasonal flu and pneumonia, according to the CDC. 
26,000 die each year just from prescription drugs each year. 
Here are some CDC statistics from the CDC website;
Number of deaths for leading causes of death:
  • Heart disease: 631,636
  • Cancer: 559,888
  • Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 137,119
  • Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 124,583
  • Accidents (unintentional injuries): 121,599
  • Diabetes: 72,449
  • Alzheimer's disease: 72,432
  • Influenza and Pneumonia: 56,326
  • Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis: 45,344
  • Septicemia: 34,234
Creating hysteria is so easy to do if one has access to the news media. Fear sells, so the media eat it up, and the public consumes it. Fear feeds itself, and people start to panic, especially if there is a feeling of 'not enough', and H1n1 might come get me in the middle of the night... 
So how come the news media ignores the million deaths each year from all of the above, while HYPERFOCUSING on just h1n1? Follow the money trail and see how it all fits... 
Who profits from the current hysteria about something that does not even rise to the level of seasonal flu or septicemia?

Exclusive NaturalNews interview: Dr. Jonathan Wright's Censored Health Secrets

Mike Adams and Jonathan Wright discuss health freedom, nutritional wisdom and health secrets the drug companies don't want you to learn...

In this exclusive NaturalNews interview, Mike Adams talks with Dr. Jonathan Wright, M.D., a true pioneer in nutrition, disease prevention and health freedom. Dr. Wright's clinic was raided by the FDA -- an event that played a pivotal role in the 1994 DSHEA act that protected nutritional supplements from FDA censorship. He's the writer and publisher of the Nutrition & Healingnewsletter, and has helped millions of readers around the world fight for their health freedoms, prevent disease and greatly improve the quality of their lives through pioneering nutritional secrets.

 

In this NaturalNews interview, Dr. Wright openly discusses many censored health secrets and reveals details on why conventional medicine has utterly failed to offer meaningful solutions to health. He also reveals:

 

  • Why a conventional medical education leaves doctors nutritionally illiterate.
  • How doctors and health authorities try to shut down "alternative" health practitioners by driving them out of business.
  • The fascinating history of health freedom and how U.S. lawmakers tried to outlaw all nutritional supplements without a prescription.
  • How Codex and the WTO threaten health freedoms of consumers around the world.
  • The true story of red yeast rice, and how drug companies stole a molecule from nature, patented it as a cholesterol drug, then tried to outlaw the plant that produced the molecule.
  • Why the FDA is the enemy of freedom, and how it gets away with blatant suppression of the First Amendment.
  • How peer pressure keeps conventional medical doctors in line with Big Pharma influence, making sure they don't promote alternative therapies.
  • Cutting-edge breakthroughs in nutritional medicine that can treat viral pandemics, cancer and more.
  • Nutritional therapies for reversing osteoporosis (and the little-known trace minerals that boosts bone density).

You can now download the full interview as a PDF file (Adobe Acrobat) that works on any computer. Here's the direct download link for subscribers only:
