    Genetically Modified Organisms and How They Effect You

    in Politics

    Genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) are a broad group of plants, animals, and bacteria that are engineered for a wide variety of applications ranging from agricultural production to scientific research. The types of potential hazards posed by GMO’s vary according to the type of organism being modified and its intended application. Most of the concern surrounding GMO’s relates to their potential for negative effects on the environment and human health. Because GMO’s that could directly effect human health are primarily products that can enter the human food supply, this website focuses on genetically modified food. To date, the only types of products that have been approved for human consumption in the U.S. are genetically modified plants (FDA website).


    All genetically modified foods that have been approved are considered by the government to be as safe as their traditional counterparts and are generally unregulated (FDA website). However, there are several types of potential health effects that could result from the insertion of a novel gene into an organism. Health effects of primary concern to safety assessors are production of new allergens, increased toxicity, decreased nutrition, and antibiotic resistance (Bernstein et al., 2003).

    Hidden Dangers of Genetically Modified Foods

    in Health

    We hear a lot about Genetically Modified foods, or Genetically Modified Organisms – GMOs. But what exactly are they, and why should we bother worrying about them?


    We would like to review what GMOs are with our listening audience, about how they are changing our relationship to food, and what we can do to take control of the types of foods we eat.


    First, let’s answer the question; ‘what are genetically-modified foods?’


    When you hear someone use the term, “Frankenfoods”, there’s a good reason. Genetically-modified foods take genetic material from one organism and put it into another. This gives the organism – plant or animal – characteristics that it didn’t have before, which your body will not recognize and to that end, will create a disease state.

    Something to look forward to.


    YE SHALL ALL LIKEWISE PERISH
    A. Luke 13:1-5King James Version (KJV)


    13 There were present at that season some that told him of the Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.


    2 And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things?


    3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.


    4 Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem?


    5 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

    Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)

    in Self Help

    Genetically Modified Organisms GMOs, altered by genetic modification of the seeds, can render consumers infertile and undermine their health. Genetic engineering develops seeds compatible with their brand of herbicide and/or for other traits. GMOs may cause deterioration of DNA, the immune system, the colon and other organs.

    Millions of Genetically Modified Mosquitos to be released into Florida to help fight new disease… Thoughts?? http://www.foxnews.com/science/2015/01/26/fda-could-set-millions-genetically-modified-mosquitos-loose-in-florida-keys/ 


    Millions of genetically modified mosquitoes could be released in the Florida Keys if British researchers win approval to use the bugs against two extremely painful viral diseases.
    Never before have insects with modified DNA come so close to being set loose in a residential U.S. neighborhood.
    "This is essentially using a mosquito as a drug to cure disease," said Michael Doyle, executive director of the Florida Keys Mosquito Control District, which is waiting to hear if the Food and Drug Administration will allow the experiment.

    #6: Genetically Modified WHAT? - Troy Casey, The Certified Health Nut

    in Health

    Troy Casey, the Certified Health Nut of certifiedhealthnut.com, joins us to talk to us about GMO (genetically modified organism) foods - a topic which is a hotbed of controversy in the health and fitness industry. We cover:


    - What are GMOs, how they affect the agriculture industry and what risks they pose to humanity at large


    - Where GMOs are most commonly found in the food industry.


    - WHY people grow GMOs and seek profit at the expense of the health of others


    - How we can counter the GMO revolution with our choice to support farmers rather than large industries


    - What Troy Casey would do if he was let loose in the Monsanto Headquarters for an hour

    The Might of the Thoughts and Neurotransmitters

    in Spirituality

    In the body of the human being, the thoughts and feelings are capable of setting the most diverse biological processes in motion, such as, for example, also the activation, or blocking, of the distribution of positive or negative neurotransmitters. Therefore the brain is capable of producing highly effective substances of a positive or negative kind, which are far superior to any pharmaceutical preparation or toxic substance. Consequently the brain can stimulate valuable processes which promote health, or evoke processes which destroy the organism and life.

    Whoa..What You don't Know About Vaccines, GMOs and Pharmaceutical Companies

    in Health

    The food, vaccine, drug, insurance and health industry are a multi-billion dollar enterprise. Are they more focused on profits than human health? 


    The newly released and very popular film "Bought" features exclusive interviews with the world's most acclaimed experts in research, medicine, holistic care and natural health from leading organizations such as MIT, Harvard and more.


    I have watched a lot of documentaries and sometimes they can scare folks with their "doom and gloom" message. But when I saw Bought I must admit I was pleasantly surprised and impressed. I really appreciated the tone of the movie and the "visual aids" which helped me understand the "numbers"behind this important topic. 


    I wanted to learn more about what the average person can do to empower themselves to take action agaisnt mandated vaccines, GMOs etc.  so I had a very special, behind the scenes  interview with the filmmaker of Bought, Jeff Hays. 


    If you haven't watched the film yet, then I highly encourage you to tune in. Jeff shares with us some inspiring and hopeful steps to protect you and your family. To learn more about the movie visit: http://www.boughtmovie.net/

    Talking In Circles: Steve Byrnes Death, Kyle Busch Exemption, David Ragan's ride

    in Sports

    On this episode of Talking In Circles we discuss the life and career of the late Steve Byrnes. Byrnes, the former NASCAR Broadcaster lost his life due to a battle with cancer on Tuesday. 


    Also NASCAR has said they are open to an exemption for injured driver Kyle Busch. Busch has been hurt since his opening week accident at Daytona International Speedway. Is this the right decision? 


    David Ragan appears to be headed to the No. 55 at Kansas Speedway in two weeks. Can Ragan make Chase in this ride? 


    Also NASCAR Whelen Modified Tommy Barrett, Jr was arrested and charged with a DUI. That led his Our Motorsports team to suspend him from the race at Stafford Speedway this weekend. Was this the right move by the team? Or another Kurt Busch situation. 


    Mike Wallace had triple bypass surgery last week meaning he will not race in next weekend's NASCAR Xfinity Series race. He will be replaced by his brother Kenny Wallace in the No.26 JGL Racing Toyota. 


    Johanna Long will run the No. 03 this weekend at Richmond. How will she do? 


    RCR Appeal. What's taking so long? 


    Richmond International Raceway, Toyota Owners 400. Our picks and what we expect to see.
