More Reason to Not Eat Genetically Modified Foods

Have you ever heard of “Morgellon’s Disease”? If you haven't, I encourage you to click on the link and learn something about it.

For quite a long time, I've made a concerted effort to keep genetically modified foods off of my family's dinner table and out of our mouths. It's not easy, believe me, and I admit that we do eat some processed foods, but I try my best to keep our food as natural as possible. It just never seemed like a sensible thing to me to eat a lot of food that has been so damaged as to be barely recognizable anymore.

Morgellon's Disease (or syndrome) is pretty scary stuff - if it's real. As with a lot of medical research, there are a lot of people with a lot of opinions on both sides of the coin. There are doctors who absolutely believe it exists, and is somehow linked to genetically modified food. There are doctors who believe it is nonsense. I'm not a doctor, and I can see good points on both sides. I also remember the days when Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and Fibromyalgia were both thought to be faked, or mind created, illnesses. And I've read about the days when Doctors told their female patients that Pre-Menstrual Syndrome and other monthly issues were "all in their heads".

Do your homework. And, for goodness' sake, think carefully about the food you and your family eat, and the chemicals you and your family use on your skin and hair, spray in the air and on the fabrics around your home, use to clean your kitchens and bathrooms, and use to wash laundry.

To paraphrase (very badly) a famous quote from Joshua: As for me and my house, we will not eat genetically modified food.
