FDA, Monsanto, and Why We're Raising Our Kids on a Farm

According to Natural News the FDA is set to approve genetically engineered animals. You know what pisses me off about this article? The fact that a German court apparently ordered Monsanto (the biggest seed distributor in the country, genetically modified seeds that is. Prior to becoming a seed company they were a chemical producer -- Round Up, anyone? Don't get me started on them) to release a 90 study on rats that showed that the rats feed genetically engineered corn (what most of us buy in the store in cereals and flours) developed allergies, infections, and cancer. Excuse me?!?! Not only that, but people have reported to the FDA allergies that they developed in relation to eating cereal with GE corn.

Does anybody question this?? Does anybody care??

It's a sad day when we can't really trust the food we buy in stores. Yet one more reason we're going to grow our own. If ya'll want we can grow some for you too.

I'm not kidding.....if you honestly mean that I will gladly take you up on that offer :)

My goal is to one day buy my own beef and cattle (not genetically altered and all that crap) and raise them antibiotic/hormone-free and raise them as much on grass as possible (of course a little bit of grain will be needed but not like the hot feeds they use now).

Maybe we can trade.....get back to the barter system :)

I care, and this makes me so mad. We buy natural beef by the side, grow some of our food, drink raw milk, but it still bothers me that anything I buy in the store could have GMO and they don't even have to tell me! Grrrrr.
