Everyone (except for monsanto) is talking about the negatives of GMO foods, GM seeds and the affect on the soil and environment and both human and animal health overall but no one is discussing how gmo foods can actually benefit us. Can GMO foods and seeds and companies like monsanto create positive change? I think so, and in a not-conventional way, that’s for sure.
In this video I talk about the positive side of GMO’s that no one else is discussing, please watch it with an open mind.
If this message inspired, educated, or encouraged you in any way please share this with those you feel would benefit from it. I think in order to get the outcome we want we must see past the obstacle, and in this case GMO’s and monsanto are a pretty big obstacle, but let’s keep things in perspective, stay positive and talk with our actions.
Live Healthy Wild And GMO Free!

Linda, Try a different Internet Browser. I use Chrome and it seems to work fine. If that does not for you , then try one of the others. It will work.
Thanks Pat, appreciate the comment.
Hi Linda, maybe try google chrome or firefox, or safari… Not sure which browser you are using but another browser (or just refreshing the page) and you should be able to see the video.
This video is not really that informative. It is an opinion, not scientific researched at all. I personally am several decades older than the video maker and can remember that when I was growing up Agriculture had a policy of crop rotation, meaning on the same ground, you, the farmer were not allowed to grow the same crop year after year, In order to not rob the soil of the same nutrients every year. Make sense? It did to me then and still does. BUT due to the almighty $$$ growers do not do that anymore. They use Monsanto and other companies products to supposedly restore the nutrients to the ground and then grow the same crop year after year. They are paid in some areas to do this, so instead of growing corn one year and sugar beets, the next, they pay growers to continue to grow corn using the so called fertilizer to make it grow faster, taller, make more corn grow on the stalk and harvest quicker, thus make more $$$ for the grower. This makes sense to the grower as they have to make a profit to make a living and crop rotation gets expensive after a while. They even let food processors use a product called OLEAN, that is a synthetic Oil to process potato chips and other stuff. The FDA passed a law that said it did not even have to be listed on the label. It did not need a vote by the people to do this. Is that fair or healthy? Only you can answer that. If you disagree with monsanto, boycott their products they have their hands in.
There is NO positive side to GMO's – period.
Did you watch the video Gail?
Did you watch the video Pat? Sounds like you agree with me… Of course there's no science, it's all opinion… i'm not a scientist.
Crop rotation does make sense, and monoculture (the current farming method to grow the same crops on the same land over and over again doesn't make much sense)
Like many people… being in school and working it's hard to listen to a 17 minute video… I can't tell cause I had to stop. Are you in favor of GMO or not? In the video are you saying they're good for the planet or not? Need the CLIFF NOTES version.
I'm an admin on some healthy food FB pages and your post on this is in holding — I voted that we delete it and not post it. Your message is too long and not clear… I did kind of look at your page — support for GMO seems to be the opposite of what you say.
You have to tell the story better — shorter — to the point.
Yeah, like feeding kids in Africa that don't have access to food. But thats not a problem because its not in your backyard.
