#NonGMO Package Giveaway to Celebrate NonGMO Month! #GeneticRoulette Movie Giveaway!
October is Non-GMO Month!
What are GMOs?
GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms) are organisms that are genetically engineered in a lab. These organisms are are not natural, have crossed species line and is not apart of the evolutionary process. In simplified terms, they do not exist anywhere in nature. GMOs occur when scientists take the gene from one species and force it into the DNA of another species, creating a new Franken-organism. An example would be cow genes inserted into a pig’s DNA in an effort to create a “cow-hide” for pigs.
Where are the GMOs?
Unbeknownst to most of us, they are found are found in our food, and many products that we use and purchase. Labeling for GMOs is being fought for across the country to provide a CHOICE to those who do not want to be apart of this unregulated science experiment. Testimonies by doctors, scientists, dieticians and parents give serious consideration to real health dangers of consuming genetically engineered organisms. There are only nine crops that are generally modified, but its derivatives are found in over 70% of foods and products in the marketplace.

I did watch the trailer and it did scare me! I am trying to buy more natural products for my family because I see how chemicals can affect us, so it does make me worried about our food with GMO's.ReplyDelete
I would also love to try the BerryRadical Antioxidant Superfood.

Darling Salt Glow Body scrub; i am very concerned abt the gmo's for me and my 3 dogs...afraid of the chemicals and how they are processed in our bodyReplyDelete
i am very concerned, even some of the socalled organic and health foods are using gmo's which upsets me...there have been many articles regarding this lately. i dont know why the govt is allowing this, their reasoning more economical food sources.ReplyDelete
Evie, you have valid concerns and you're not alone! You're right. A lot of products that do not have a certified organic label, but claim to be organic (toxin-free) CAN be misleading in how they label their products. This is called green-washing. You'll need to read and assess their ingredients carefully. Even third-party certifying organizations have different standards of certifying. The products from my shop (Miessence) are certified organic to food grade standards, the highest certification you can receive, and is certified international (much stricter than USDA). I have a free label-reading event coming up that talks about this and much more, very eye-opening information. You can RSVP on the Events page. Additionally, I learned from the film that some former Monsanto employees hold high level positions in the FDA. This would explain a bit about the lack of action we see.Delete
This is so frightening. The number of conditions that may be related to GMOs is astounding! I was also shocked by the internist who said that, with many of these conditions, when the modified foods are removed from the diet, patients get better. Pretty obvious relationship there.ReplyDelete
Yes! The movie talks about this too. With many testimonies from doctors, scientists and parents.Delete
Great trailer--I have become more aware of what I am buying recently because of GMOs.ReplyDelete
I like the Lemon Myrtle shampoo.

I agree and good for you. We are trying to do the same. Evolving as much as we can towards a wholesome, pure diet.Delete
My favorite is the Balancing Skin Essentials Pack.ReplyDelete
LOVE the balancing skin essentials! My skin has never been more soft and supple! The conditioner is the key! It feeds your skin the nutrients it needs. :)Delete
Love the citrus burst products, especially the Sunflower Body Wash.ReplyDelete
Since my skin is so sensitive and my hair as well it has been thinning do too my thyroid I am very cautious about what I use the lemon shampoo sounds nice.ReplyDelete
Hi Tina! I have thyroid issues too that caused thinning, hair loss and weight gain. My hair was not only thin, but super sensitive scalp that was scaly. I've been dealing with it for a few years now. However, I've been taking the Superfoods Vitality Pack (DeepGreens, BerryRadical & InLiven) for a few months now, my hormones are more balanced, my hair grew back, (not as thick as it used to be, but it's there!) and I've slimmed down a bit. I'm hosting an event that talks about the Superfoods Vitality Pack. You'll find it on the Events page. You can find the superfoods here: http://www.miessence.com/shop/en/category/5/superfoodDelete
Additionally, because you have sensitive skin, I would suggest Desert Flower Shampoo which is gentle and cleans with Yucca Juice (no soap or detergent). Thanks for stopping past!
Wow....really interesting trailer. GMOs are scary....I hate to think about the future repercussions of this.ReplyDelete
I like the Lemon Myrtle shampoo. I like that it made me more aware of GMOs because I honestly have never thought about it.ReplyDelete
