Before You Sit Down to Those Upcoming Holiday Barbeques…

family bbqSummer’s here and the livin’ is easy. Well, before you roll out those hazy, lazy, crazy days of summer and hunker down to a family barbeque watch the below cited video regarding GMO’s, pesticides, insecticides, and other engineered foods. The implications go far beyond the obvious health risks and have long-term consequences lasting for generations, so it is important to understand the full ramifications of Frankenfoods. The first step is to begin to grow your own foodstuffs and become proficient at small scale agriculture, the second step is to view this video, and the third is to contact your Federal Representatives and Senators to demand that GMO labeling be included in any consumable food product that we take into our bodies.

BTW, for all you “organic and natural” consumers you must understand that what is labeled organic and natural, well, just ain’t necessarily so. Often in areas where organic foods are grown there may be a GMO farm down the road. In the world of nature there is no such thing as isolation so drifting of pollen occurs with regularity. IN fact, organic certification takes this into account by passing off so called GMO pollen-contaminated foodstuffs if the organic farmer takes steps to mitigate the damage caused through such measures as fallow boundary areas; removing contaminated plants over a span of time, usually two to three years; and other actions. This however, does not preclude that an isolation and separation does actually occur. Indeed, since many pollinating insects regularly forage in a two to eight mile radius, (honeybees, for example), they could easily and most likely be bringing in contaminated pollen no matter what the organic farmer my do to prevent it. Wind drift, depending on speed and direction can also take GMO pollen far afield from its originating location thereby contaminating organic farms miles away from the offending crops. Yet, organic certification allows for this as long as the organic farmer makes best efforts to avoid this situation. So, once again, as in much of contemporary living, we have useless feel good solutions to real time problems.

Considering the foregoing paragraph, the backyard suburban farmers actually stands a greater chance of isolation in his backyard crop because he is not usually in an agricultural region, thus, avoiding to a large extent natural drifting and cross-pollination. So if you are really serious about “organic and natural” food, break out the old spade, shovel, and hoe and brake up that green and useless lawn, stop being a lawn-farmer, and get busy perfecting your personal agricultural skills. It is the best way to ensure truly healthy food for you and your family.

I urge all readers of Catholic Rural Solutions to watch this important video, it is worth the time.

About Catholic Rural Solutions

This group is for the practical application of Catholic Distributist teachings as promoted by Pope St. Pius X, Belloc, Chesterton, Maurin and others in the 20th century. This group is also a respite for traditional Catholics who adhere to the Tridentine Rite of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and who share a concern for small independent Catholic communities throughout the world. These communities while primarily small holding farmers, craftsmen and tradesman all espouse an integrated life based on Catholic Social Justice and the Sacred Magisterium of the Church. Through this we intend to inject the Distributist economic principles into the greater society. Please fell free to share your experiences in this vein. Flaming, proselytizing and persecution WILL NOT BE TOLERATED.

One Response to You Are What You Eat…

    VERY important video which every American needs to see … thanks for posting it. Also wathc the documentary “Food, Inc.”. So, if pollen carries the GMO, does that mean that the honey can become GMO?

    Have you followed the reports on Natural News where the US wheat supply has been found to be contaminated by GMOs which escaped from quarantined experimental fields? Several countries have refused imports of US wheat, and US wheat farmers are filing lawsuits for contamination of their crops. They also reported that Hungary recently burned 1200 acres of GM corn to get it out of their food supply. This has the potential to get SERIOUSLY out of control fast.

    The thing that really tics me off is that our government is always putting their hands where they don’t belong (literally with the TSA), yet in this legitimate function of government (protecting our food supply) the FDA and the USDA are asleep at the wheel (at best … at worst, bought and paid-for by the corporate farming interests).
