Top Breakfast Cereals That Contain Monsanto’s GMO Corn

The recent French study that related Monsanto’s GMO corn to cancer, liver damage, organ failure, kidney damage and premature death –  is now being taken very seriously by health organizations and even governments all over the world and they are now warning their people and farmers to make healthier and better food choices.

GMO labeling

Although United States of America is the richest nation on earth, it is now regarded as one of the least healthy societies in the world. People in US are becoming more aware of the health risks associated with processed andGMO foods and are more interested than ever before in organic sustainable living.

As usual, California is once again leading the country in proposing regulations that protect the public from health risks and putting focus on public safety. The desire to label GMO foods is growing stronger, not just in California, but  across the entire country and many organizations and communities from East Coast to West Coast of US are seeking support for California Proposition 37 in order to protect pregnant women, infants and children from the health hazards associated to GMOs.

Public organizations are compiling lists with the assistance of research institutes in US to monitor and disclose favorite food brands that may contain ingredients made with Monsanto’s GMO corn or have been genetically modified or engineered.

Since 85% of corn and soy planted in the US are genetically modified, therefore most processed foods are made of ingredients that contain corn or soy based compounds with high levels of GMO. In fact, soy and corn aren’t the only foods that have been genetically modified; there is also rice, canola oil, cotton, tomatoes, potatoes, dairy products, meat products and peas that have been genetically modified.

Last week the editor of Natural News Mike Adams released the name of many well known breakfast cereals that are made from Monsanto’s GMO corn as below:

  1. Barbara’s Bakery Puffins Peanut Butter
  2. General Mills Cocoa Puffs
  3. Kellogg’s Corn Pops
  4. Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes
  5. Kashi Heart to Heart
  6. Kellogg’s Corn Flakes
  7. General Mills Kix
  8. General Mills Corn Chex
  9. Quaker Honey Graham Oh’s
  10. General Mills Honey Nut Chex

Nature’s evolutionary permutations has brought us here to this point in time and space in a remarkable journey of precision. We cannot let Monsanto destroy mankind in a flash through genetically modified DNA – and cause irreparable damage to humans – for profit.

GMO cancer

Humans, who can’t even eradicate common cold, can’t stop unnecessary wars, famine, injustice, inequality, 500 million children dying of malnutrition worldwide, 13 million child sex slaves, etc. etc. shouldn’t be trusted togenetically modify foods (causing pathogens to radically mutate uncontrollably) without enough research and enough time to understand the consequences and the implications and possible long term side-effects.

To illustrate my point, humans (and those particularly in power such as large wealthy corporations, i.e. Monsanto) can’t even agree to respect people’s choice and fully disclose through labeling food.

In fact the “Big 6″ pesticide firms (MonsantoDuPont, Bayer, Dow, BASF and Syngenta) have contributed $19M against CA prop No 37 and they REFUSE to want to label GMOs and respect people’s choice when there is absolutely no LOGICAL and MORAL reason for not labeling GMO foods.

Bottom line is that there are no more myths about GMOs and GMO debate is over. The arguments I have heard from all those Monsanto supporters and those who have stocks in GMO and bio companies, and those proponents of GMO without any safety assessment prior to consumption by the general public is like a broken record player that completely ignores and disrespects people’s right to CHOOSE.

Physical Inactivity Kills! … As Much as Smoking Men’s Fitness

Premature deaths and obesity in the world are due, in part, to sedentary lifestyles.

Almost half of the people in the U.S. are lazy slobs, but they’re no longer alone. Other countries are catching up, adopting a sedentary American lifestyle that’s responsible for premature deaths around the world.

It’s not easy being a couch potato, but it’s clearly dangerous to your health. A series of new studies and commentaries published in The Lancet, though, show that physical inactivity is a problem that knows no borders.

If you work out regularly, you may think being sedentary means sitting down to drink water between sets, but most government guidelines say that physical inactivity is anything less than:

Adults: 150 minutes of walking or moderate physical activity per week Teens: one hour of moderate to vigorous exercise a day

Based upon these, the U.S. is a leader in sloth, with 43.3 percent of Americans failing to meet even those modest goals for physical activity. The rest of the world is catching up, though—with 24.8 percent of people sedentary in Europe, 30 percent in Russia and the Middle East, and 27 percent in Africa.

Globally, 31.1 percent of the world’s population moves too little to stay healthy, amounting to 1.5 billion people. Teenagers (13 to 15 years old) fare even worse. Over 80 percent of the up-and-coming generation moves about as much as a snail.

Researchers linked this pandemic of physical inactivity to heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and breast and colon cancer. In all, sedentary lifestyles lead to an estimated 5.3 million premature deaths a year worldwide, right up there with smoking.

Researchers propose several ways to tackle obesity in the world by encouraging people to get moving, from more parks and bike lanes to paying people to exercise. Personal responsibility, though, along with admitting that the couch can be deadly, may be the best way to save the world from physical inactivity.
