Let's Talk Health: HELL NO... GMO!!!
Greetings Chicas/Chicos..I pray all is healthy with everyone.
Let's Talk GMO, which means Genetically Modified Organism, which is the most common name for it, or you may have heard it called GEO (Genetically Engineered Organism). This is basically when edible items are genetically mutated or manipulated to meet mass demand. You know, the food approved by the FDA that are in all local grocery stores.
It's in our chicken and beef. Like the sista said in the song, 'worms won't even go near apples' due to the chemicals that are being injected into and added onto our foods. And when you walk down the isle of the fabulously marketed grocery stores, notice the size, the bright color and the feel of the fruits and veggies..The fruit and veggies are injected with food coloring, hence this is why when you clean your fruit and veggie you will see your water turn the color of the particular food you are washing. I use distilled vinegar and sea salt to clean my fruit and veggies to ensure that the chemicals have, at least, cleaned the surface of our fruit and veggies. Rinsing your fruits and veggies under the water no longer works..let's clean them right!
Genetic engineering is a radical new technology that forces genetic information across the protective species barrier in an unnatural way. Why be concerned? One of many good reasons is that these laboratory-created mutations are unlabeled, virtually untested and on grocery shelves everywhere.
Now, this topic could get very wordy, but let me just say that the rise of GMO foods have created a rise in obesity, cancer, and over-development in our youth ( do you notice how teens look like mature adults now?)..we can thank our wonderful powers that be for this .

Hope you enjoyed the music by this talented and creative sista..Have A Happy GMO Free DAY!!
