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).

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, 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.
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
Monsanto Company is a global supplier of herbicides and seeds. Monsanto leads the world market for genetically modified (GM) seed; it produces GM varieties for corn, soybeans, and cotton. Monsanto also makes the leading brand of herbicide, Roundup, and has developed genetically engineered seeds for crops to resist Roundup. Monsanto owns one of the world's top suppliers of fruit and vegetable seeds, Seminis, and has acquired a number of regional seed producers through its American Seeds Inc. subsidiary.
The original Monsanto Company spun off its chemical business in 1997 and renamed itself Pharmacia Corporation following a merger with Pharmacia & Upjohn Inc. in 2000. The old Monsanto's agriculture business became the new Monsanto Company. Tonite we will be discussing the following; 1. Its early 20th century origins;
2. Expansion and leadership n the postwar period; 3. Company Perspectives; 4. Legal Challenges; 5. Transitional Stages and Re-organization, and 6. Contraverseries.
Join us for a discussion with leading experts Lisa Elkins Goodman, and Warren Trammell. Hosts: Doreen Finkle and Reuben Torres.

In the early 1980s, four chemical/pharmaceutical companies, Monsanto, Upjohn, Eli Lilly and American Cyanamid began researching a new technology they believed would revolutionize the dairy industry. Through genetic engineering, researchers created recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH) to increase milk production in dairy cows by 10 to 25 percent. The FDA approved Monsanto's rBGH product, Posilac, for commercial use on November 5, 1993. Monsanto leads the production of genetically modified seeds and commercial animal stock. Genetically modified food involves the introduction of foreign DNA into plants and animal using the methods of genetic engineering. Genetic modification techniques often involves incorporating bacterial DNA into plants and animals, thus changing their “blueprint” of existence. These changes are much different from selective breeding and mutation breeding. Genetically-modified foods (plants and animals) raise safety issues, environmental concerns, and economic concerns because:
genetically modified seeds & animals are subject to ownership by corporations,
original seeds and animals can be “contaminated” by genetically modified plants and animal and
no one knows the impact of genetically modified plants and animals on the future of the earth or the biology of those who consume them.
Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH) which is a genetically engineered hormone that is injected into dairy cows every other week to force the cows to produce more milk causes problems that is adverse to milk consumers: Cows get mastitis(infections) in the udder causing pus / white blood cells to be expressed into the milk so that antibiotics used to treat mastitis and pus remain in the milk and drank by the consumer -YUM.

There is a purely emotional part of the parent/child relationship that is built on affection and esteem. Parents and children are genetically geared to love each other, and it’s a beautiful thing to behold.
But there’s a stage where parenting becomes a functional role, not just an emotional role. With infants, the emotional role shows when a mother demonstrates her love by holding, talking and singing to the child. The functional role involves feeding, changing diapers and bathing the baby. One without the other is damaging for the child. So if she just loved that child but didn’t do the responsible functional things, that child would be at great risk and would be harmed and neglected. If she just took care of the functional things and didn’t show that child any love, it would have long term effects on the child’s emotional development. The emotional and functional parenting roles go hand in hand. It’s not healthy to emphasize one at the cost of the other.
I think as kids grow older, the parent’s role becomes more functional and less emotional, which is a hard lesson for parents who want to be their child’s “best friend.” As parents, they may feel those emotions inside, but they really have to do more for their child functionally, and set limits with the child. Limit setting is a very healthy function. It’s how kids learn to figure out what’s safe and what’s not safe. What’s appropriate and what’s not appropriate. The functional role changes for parents as the child grows. With a one-year-old, it involves changing diapers. With an eight-year-old, the functional role involves getting homework done. With a fifteen-year-old, it involves enforcing a responsible curfew.

We are pleased to have Jared Umbenhauer with us this week. Jared is moving to the Modifieds after being a powerhouse competitor, winning three straight Sportsman titles at Grandview Speedway. It will be interesting to see if he carries that success to the primary division of competition. We will be talking about the big move up to Modifieds and Jared tells us he has some big news to announce. He did not tell LD&D what this is all about so we don’t have a clue what he is going to let out of the bag. Be with us live and find out when we do.
