Mission: Are We Eating Fishy Food? There are some Fishy ingredients in our food. They’re called GMOs, or genetically modified organisms. For about fifteen years now, American crops have been grown with technology called genetic engineering; combining DNA from plants, animals, viruses, and bacteria to create new organisms. For example, corn grown with the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis, which kills bugs that eat the plant. In 1991, the first GMO tomato was developed with a combination of tomato and arctic flounder DNA for it’s antifreeze trait. Transgenic GMOs like corn, soy, canola, and sugar beets, have weed-killer tolerance and pesticides built into their DNA. We can’t wash these poisons off, and the products are already on our grocery store shelves without a label. Much of the world considers GMO foods to not be proven safe. Genetically engineered ingredients have unknown health consequences, cause environmental damage, and hurt farmers’ bottom line. GMOs yield huge profits for giant multi-billion dollar corporations and place control of the world’s food supply in their hands. Unlike the rest of the industrialized world, the USA and Canada do not require labels on GMOs -- YET! Support GMO labeling at the local, state, and national level. Demand the FDA require labels on all FishyFood and vote Yes on GMO labeling in your state. Find out more at www.AreWeEatingFishyFood.com

“Lobbying documents and emails obtained by The Intercept show a vast strategy by the pesticide industry to influence academics, beekeepers, and regulators, and to divert attention away from the potential harm caused by pesticides. As a result, the global neonic industry generated $4.42 billion in revenue in 2018. In the meantime, the effects are being seen in massive die-offs. Certain insect species are nearing extinction."

Google search engine results altered to delink global decline of dragonflies, butterflies, bumble bees and many other critical pollinators from a coating used on most seeds planted in the U.S. before farmers plant them each year. Search terms include “neonicotinoid,” “pollinators,” and “neonics”, in effort led by Syngenta, Bayer-Monsanto and others. The amount used on one seed is enough to harm immune systems of thousands of bees and has scientifically been reported in drinking water. These companies reported their profits from neonics alone were $4.2bil in 2018.

100m bacteria a day keep the doctor away, apple research suggests

"A study has found that a typical apple carries more than 100 million bacteria. Some of these microbes are important in maintaining a healthy gut environment, or microbiome. The bacteria, fungi and viruses in our food transiently colonize our gut. Cooking kills most of these, so raw fruit and veg are particularly important sources of gut microbes.”

“Freshly harvested, organically managed apples harbor a significantly more diverse, more even and distinct bacterial community, compared to conventional ones. This variety and balance would be expected to limit overgrowth of any one species, and previous studies have reported a negative correlation between human pathogen abundance and microbiome diversity of fresh produce.”

Study finds organic apples have more diverse and balanced bacterial community
