Sometimes frequently mention terms like GMO can wash over us, thinking it doesn’t really touch our lives.
Perhaps it does, more than you think.
Unfortunately corn and soy are in most of our processed products (including our pet food) - and most of those GMO versions of it. Here in Mauritius, where all our processed food is imported and sourced at low prices, it’s highly likely that its in much of our packed foods.
The 2 main GMO’s used
BT Toxin - perforates our gut wall (designed to burst the stomachs of pests eating the crop)
Roundup Ready Resistant - resistant to potent poison ‘Round-up’, which is very harmful to humans and animals
No matter what the ‘scientific’ studies say, thousands of clinicians are seeing in their own practice, dramatic improvements on a spectrum of conditions from mental to physical, some reversed in a matter of days!
Look for GMO free which if not stated, probably implies a high probability that it is GMO.
although it talks a lot about the USA - it applies worldwide.

Top 10 Worst GMO Foods
One of the most prominent GMO foods, avoiding corn is a no-brainer. If you’ve watched any food documentary, you know corn is highly modified. “As many as half of all U.S. farms growing corn for Monsanto are using genetically modified corn,” and much of it is intended for human consumption. Monsanto’s GMO corn has been tied to numerous health issues, including weight gain and organ disruption.
Found in tofu, vegetarian products, soybean oil, soy flour, and numerous other products, soy is also modified to resist herbicides. As of now, biotech giant Monsanto still has a tight grasp on the soybean market, with approximately 90 percent of soy being genetically engineered to resist Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup. In one single year, 2006, there was 96.7 million pounds of glyphosate sprayed on soybeans alone.
3. Sugar (sugar beets not cane)
According to NaturalNews, genetically-modified sugar beets were introduced to the U.S. market in 2009. Like others, they’ve been modified by Monsanto to resist herbicides. Monsanto has even had USDA and court-related issues with the planting of it’s sugarbeets, being ordered to remove seeds from the soil due to illegal approval.
Aspartame is a toxic additive used in numerous food products, and should be avoided for numerous reasons, including the fact that it is created with genetically modified bacteria.
This one may come as a surprise to all of you tropical-fruit lovers. GMO papayas have been grown in Hawaii for consumption since 1999. Though they can’t be sold to countries in the European Union, they are welcome with open arms in the U.S. and Canada.
One of the most chemically altered foods, canola oil is obtained from rapeseed through a series of chemical actions.
Found in cotton oil, cotton originating in India and China in particular has serious risks.
Your dairy products may contain growth hormones, since as many as one-fifth of all dairy cows in America are pumped with these hormones. In fact, Monasnto’s health-hazardous rBGH has been banned in 27 countries, but is still in most US cows. If you must drink milk, buy organic.
