Sept. 7, 2012 Most consumers know that eating pesticides cannot be a healthy choice, no matter how cheaply the product is made, fresh local foods grown in nearby farms are far more worth the price and actually saves money.
Most consumers do not know that GMO contains pesticides within the seeds that grow plants, the seeds have RoundUp inside so when the plant grows and is eaten pesticides will be swallowed. On top of that, pesticides are used on the exterior of plants, a double dose of pesticides both inside the plant and outside on the skin or surface.
WASHING DOES NOT REMOVE THE PESTICIDES WITHIN THE PLANT.
THIS IS WHY GMO IS SO DEADLY TO HUMANS, PETS AND ESPECIALLY TO CHILDREN.
Big box stores like Costco, Walmart, Sam’s Club are selling GMO foods made with GMO ingredients that contain pesticides and more recently Agent Orange.
Today more states are requiring and passing legislation demanded by consumers to label GMO ingredients in foods so they can make an educated choice. According to current laws in the United States Dept of Agriculture no labels are required for GMO pesticide food.
USA Does Not Label GMO Foods
Unfortunately for most Americans, they don’t even know what they are eating due to the lack of labeling laws, and consumer standards that have gone out the window in the past 10 years.
Some countries like Russia have discontinued importing US foods for that reason alone as well as other allowed bacteria, chemicals and drugs in the American made food process.
Most other countries in the world have banned GMO altogether including, France, India, and some south american countries.

List of foods that contain GMO Toxins today:
Consumers blindly are purchasing GMO pesticides when buying:
Milk, Meat, additives in drinks, Honey, vegetable oils, margarin, soy flower, soy milk, soy proteins, vegetable proteins, cornmeal, corn syrup, dextrose sugars,, fructose sugars, citric acid, lactic acid, partial and hydrogenated oils.
These fats in GMO oils contain high levels of trans fats that are causing an obese population to get even fatter. Trans fats are also poisonous to human life, slowing down metabolism and accounting for high cholesterol levels in people. Allergies, MS, arthritis can also be caused by hydrogenated oils.
Foods with Hydrogenated Oils
Cake mixes, pancakes, cookies, pies, donuts, crackers, peanut butter, frozen processed foods, whipped toppings, frozen bakery products, waffles, pancakes, instant mash potatoes the list goes on and on and on.

The United States agricultural system is infected with GMO pesticide foods, and Americans will pay the high price of diseases as a result.
Mainly due to the fact that President Obama has hired a former Monsanto lawyer to be the head of the US Dept of Agriculture, Mr. Tom Vilsack.
Until this corporate corruption is removed from our government, Monsanto will control the US food supply continuing to contaminate the public’s food.
