Petition to get GMOs out of girl scout cookies goes viral
Skip Stein's insight:

We understand how difficult and potential expensive it may be to find non-GMO ingredients, but they are also still using hydrogenated oil as well.  A little more selective process when sourcing ingredients could benefit the health and well being of these very Girl Scouts (of which my Granddaughter have been a long time member!). Educating these young girls in the sources and content of the products they and their families eat might go a long way to improve health and wellness in the USA.

'Organic' from China exposed: The shocking truth about 'organic' foods grown in the world's worst environmental cesspool
Skip Stein's insight:

ALWAYS read the label; especially the Country of Origin.  Try to shop more at local Farmer's Markets to insure quality, usually lower pesticide or organic foods.  ASK questions to see if the local farmer uses pesticides and if so, what kind and amounts.  He/she may use minimal and more natural growing techniques but not qualify (or want to pay the exhorbitant fees required by the FDA for certification) for full 'organic' labels.

The 3 Companies That Bill Gates Thinks Are Shaping The Future Of Food

The 3 Companies That Bill Gates Thinks Are Shaping The Future Of Food | Plant Based Nutrition | Scoop.it
Bill Gates is into food. He’s spent millions backing genetically modified crops that will either feed or destroy the developing world, depending on who you talk to.
Skip Stein's insight:

Gates needs to stick to computers.  His backing of GMO and aligning himself with Monsanto and other GMO producers is a loose loose situation as more and more evidence is presented showing the harmful impact on humans and the environment caused by GMO products.

We can grow plenty of food for the planet, naturally without GMO if we stop feeding animals the grains instead of growing people food.  Consuming animals creates a pollution nightmare and is destroying our ability to grow natural foods.  Pollution from animal factories, pesticide overuse and mono-agriculture spawned by the high meat consuming countries is destroying our forests and land.

Ten food label entries that should send you running

Ten food label entries that should send you running | Plant Based Nutrition | Scoop.it
Ten food label entries that should send you running
Skip Stein's insight:

Most nutritional vegans have few worries here.  Probably why we are a bit healthier (well a hell of a lot healthier than most Americans!) than the majority of the Standard American Diet consuming population.

 

Always READ THE LABEL (even though genetically modified organisms will not be listed) and if you don't know what it is, can't pronounce it or understand it, avoid it like the plague! 

 

If WE stop purchasing these poisons in our food or stop consuming these dangerous foods in the first place (eat Whole Foods, as unprocessed as possible) these companies will either go broke (one can only hope) or change what they produce and sell.

 

In most cased there are better healthier substitutes for these chemical additives but they cost a bit more so companies refuse to use them.  Be selective with your spending, after all a trip to the doctor and the co-pay and following 'deductible' bills will cost you a LOT more than paying for organic or at least more Wholesome foods!
