Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs), Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH or rBST) are in almost everything we eat, thanks to Monsanto



Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)

Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH or rBST)

According to Guy at Astoria Oregon Rust today, I’ve been ranting on my Face book.  Well, yes I have, constantly since the 6th of this month.  People are probably getting tired of it, but if just a few read and research, and maybe make some changes in what they buy and eat, I’m happy.

I used to wonder about all these “new” diseases, illnesses, cancers, and allergies that have been popping up over the last 20 years.  I used to think they had always existed, that we just  never had access to all this instant information before.  Now I’m sure that it has to do with the food that we eat and where we buy it at.

The more I researched the more pissed off I got.  It’s now at the point where I am determined make some major changes in my life.

Life would be so much easier if I would have began the changes years ago when things were not so tight money wise, but I will take baby steps and WILL get rid off all GMO, rBHG, and rBST containing items in my kitchen cabinets and refrigerator….one by one! 

Hell, GMO’s are even in the vitamin that I took every day.  It’s downright overwhelming!!!

I’m absolutely furious!

What do YOU have in YOUR homes?  What are you putting in your bodies?  Does it worry you at all?   Do you think that the food that is being eaten have anything to do with illness in your families?


  1. When I saw the link to this entry on my sidebar, I almost fell out of my chair: What I THOUGHT I saw was "Genetically modified orgasms".

  2., GM Orgasms might not be such a bad thing....that is if we got to CHOOSE it.

  3. We have been eating mostly organic food for some years now, so: probably no GMOs here. In Germany, opinions are quite strong against GMOs, and farmers are not allowed to grow manipulated plants. But we still have a few Monsanto research fields over here which can pollute neighboring Non-GMO-fields through windfall and bees.

  4. Anne...seems like Europe is much more aware of this issue. Is the media "allowed" to report on it? Or is it like over here where sex scandals and murder seem to top the news on television?
    I've found out that it is really hard to buy anything not containing some sort of GMOs. Are the items in your stores marked if they are GMO free?
    What about growth hormones in your meats?

  5. Moin, Tango,

    yes, we do still have freedom of press. ;-) But mostly the news report on GMOs only when there's some scandal or something newsworthy (like changes in laws). But I guess people are more aware over here: organic retail in Germany has had a steady 5 to 10 % growth over the last years because of whole new target groups (like parents with small children). Organic food is hip and not a treehugger- or fringe thing anymore. It's still more expensive as the other stuff, but you already get a lot of organic food (like potatoes, carrots, dairy products and meat) at supermarkets or discounters at moderate prices.

    And with the conventionally produced stuff it's also not too hard to avoid GMO-free food as long as you're not farsighted and can still read the fine print. ;-) That's because genetically modified ingredients must be declared in Germany. Most of it (corn and soy) comes from the USA or India (and other Asian countries) btw.

    Growth hormones, antibiotics and other yucky stuff have been used over decades here, but they are not allowed in organic farming. That's why we only eat certified organic meat.

    But most of the people over here still eat the cheap stuff, and lots of it. They want to have meat several times a week and fresh imported raspberries with their oatmeal in winter when they're out of season.(@Karin: ;-)). I can understand that, but it's not for me anymore.

    Wow, this has gotten long! ;-)

  6. We are SO sick and SO poisoned in this country! Even organic is a scam if you don't watch every single thing. We've given HFCS and PHO's the boot in our home, I am giving processed flour products the boot for me and hubby, the kids won't eat them yet, more and more and more is dropping out of our pantry for good.


I know it is only the ramblings and rants of one woman, but I would love to hear from you.
