GMO's and pesticides

Ditch the genetically modified foods. The biggest offenders are corn, soy, dairy, wheat, alfalfa, canola, yellow quash, zucchini, sugar beets, cotton, Aspartame and papaya. 

Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) have not been properly tested for human consumption.  Studies show they decrease sperm count, and may cause sterility, infertility, miscarriages, spontaneous abortions, ADHD and Autism. The herbicides and pesticides sprayed on these plants cannot be washed off and may also cause sterility, infertility, sexual dysfunction and hormone disruption.


Studies done by the Italians, Austrians, and Russians confirm that GMOs can act as birth control, cause DNA incompatibility between mates, and impair DNA function between a mother and fetus.  The easiest way to (almost entirely) avoid GMO food is to eat organically local grown meat, fruit and vegetables.  Skip the processed and package junk food. Remember if an animal is fed GMO grains then the meat will be contaminated. 

Insecticides, fungicides, herbicides, rodenticides, molluscicides, nematicides, plant growth regulators and others can all be covered under the term Pesticides.  Pesticides have been linked to cancer, Alzheimer's Disease, ADHD, and even birth defects. Pesticides also have the potential to harm the nervous system, the reproductive system, and the endocrine system. 

The most sprayed "dirty dozen" by Environmental Working Group are:

  1. Strawberries

  2. Spinach

  3. Kale

  4. Nectarines

  5. Apples

  6. Grapes

  7. Peaches

  8. Cherries

  9. Pears

  10. Tomatoes

  11. Celery

  12. Potatoes
