**** I found a fantastic new website on eating clean, non-GMO, healthy food, which surprisingly, you can't really get from the grocery store anymore. Learn what to avoid and how to eat healthy.
Go here for tons of awesome info.

Oh, and there's even chocolatey goodness stuff that is actually healthy for you!
GM/GMO/GE (Genetically Modified/Genetically Modified Organism/Genetically Engineered)
Understanding the link between diet and health is a pretty simple step to take. But understanding that all veggies or whole wheat bread or livestock are NOT created equal due to corporations' grasp on the food industry - a grasp that permeates the offices of the FDA/Health Canada - can be more complex.
I'm starting this thread to educate and share information on Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO, also known as GM - Genetically Modified), primarily because the baby-boomer generation is the one getting hit by it, and their kids/grandkids absolutely need to be educated about it.
The baby-boomers parents never had to deal with this problem because the food that they ate wasn't corrupted genetically. The baby-boomers grew up with an explosion of processed foods, chemical pesticides, and chemical food additives. While the nutritional content of the food plummeted, or worse, became carcinogenic, the GMO foods have begun to mutate our bodies, making it even more difficult for our intestinal tracts to extract nutrients from already nutrient compromised food products. GMO foods are doubly bad for us. Adding chemical fertilizer and chemical pesticides to the mix even further compromises our health.
SO, in an effort to keep this thread heavy on information, short on ramblings and opinions, let's try and keep the posts to point form as much as possible, unless further explanation is required/warranted. Let's do our best to keep this thread ON TOPIC.
With that, POST UP YOUR INFO & LINKS!
