About GMOs

Robin Andrews Diet, Healthy Living

Many of you have been asking me about GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms)

In 1911, a company was founded by the name of Paramecia. The named derived from the word Parmakeia because of their use of a mixture of calf brain, sugar,and milk that was to cure ailments. In 2000 they merged with Monsanto.  In 2002, they merged with Monsanto and Pfizer, now the largest Pharmaceutical Company in the world, purchased Paramecia and spun off Monsanto as it’s own company solely to focus on the Bio-Tech Seed Industry. In 2005 Monsanto acquires Seminis, the world’s largest vegetable seed company, making Monsanto the largest bio-tech agriculture firm in the world, owning 90% of the U.S. patents for seeds. Not until 1980 could anyone patent ‘Life’.   In 1960-1970’s MSG ( Monosodium Glutamate) AKA “Natural Flavoring”, others names include Glutamate, Hydrolyzed, Yeast extract, Caseinate, Autolyzed yeast, Gelatin, Textured Soy protein, Whey protein…… Other substances to avoid are Carrageenan found in most soy milk except the brand West Soy; Maltodextrin, Citric acid, Citrate, and anything fermented. GMO food suspected of containing MSG: Corn products, Corn syrup, rice syrup, anything vitamin enriched, dextrose, anything low fat or no fat, Campbell soup, canned and frozen meats, additives, sweeteners, natural and artificial flavors, Excitotoxins, Aspartame, long grain rice ( short grain is usually okay), yellow rice, most foods from China…Tofu, Soy-based food, and noodles from that country.
