Genetically Engineered Foods: “If it’s not broken, don’t fix it”

This is an extract from the Chapter Authentic Foods in Rainbow Green-Live Cuisine Genetically engineered foods provide a more significant threat to our delicate worldwide ecosystems than even pesticides and herbicides. I want to quote John Hagelin, an award-winning quantum physicist and candidate who ran for president on the Natural Law Party ticket. He says, “When genetic engineers disregard the genetic boundaries set in place by natural law, they run the risk of destroying our genetic encyclopedia, compromising the richness of our biodiversity, creating a genetic soup. What this means for the future of our ecosystem, no one knows.” When you […]

Insights on Soy: An Open Letter to Ocean and John Robbins

Insights On Soy

Dear Ocean, Thank you to both you and John for the heroic work you are doing in campaigning for veganism. As a holistic physician and successful vegan for more than 35 years, I feel completely aligned with your support of a plant-based diet. I’m writing this letter in response to John Robbins’ soy article (recently reprinted in 2013 in your newsletter as the most comprehensive article on soy). At one point in the ’60’s and ’70’s, when my personal community was literally making our own soy products for personal consumption, soy was seen as the great protein substitute for vegetarians and […]

The Failure of Proposition 37

The Failure of Proposition 37: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness – Is Anybody Interested? Gabriel Cousens, MD, MD(H), DD   The failure of California’s Proposition 37, a bill that would require the labeling of genetically modified ingredients in foods, represents a shocking commentary on our collective ability to make informed and responsible choices in favor of our health and happiness. This failure at a time when nearly 20 US states are discussing GMO-related legislation, including moratorium bills, and nearly 60 countries worldwide, who have taken significant steps to mandate the labeling of or who have outright banned growth […]

GMOs: If It’s Not Broken, Don’t Fix It

Genetically engineered foods provide a more significant threat to our delicate worldwide ecosystems than even pesticides and herbicides. I want to quote John Hagelin, an award-winning quantum physicist and candidate who ran for president on the Natural Law Party ticket. He says, “When genetic engineers disregard the genetic boundaries set in place by natural law, they run the risk of destroying our genetic encyclopedia, compromising the richness of our biodiversity, creating a genetic soup. What this means for the future of our ecosystem, no one knows.” Dr. John Fagan, internationally recognized molecular biologist and former genetic engineer, says, “We are […]

Iodine – Open Letter to Dr. Mercola

Dear Dr. Mercola, I have great appreciation for the good information you bring to the public as well as for your stances in favor of labeling GMO foods in California and against vaccinations. However, recently you made a statement that the highest amount of daily iodine intake should be no more than 400 micrograms, and that surprised me. For the sake of higher public good, I would like to suggest a variety of scientific and holistic reasons for why a significantly higher amount of iodine should be used. What you recommend is only slightly higher than the FDA recommendation, which […]

Organic Food Supply Threatened By Gene Manipulated Organisms From Monsanto

Organic Food Supply Threatened By Gene Manipulated Organisms From Monsanto Dear Friends, In 2006, the Center for Food Safety sued the USDA for illegally approving genetically modified (“GM”) alfalfa.  Federal courts agreed and banned GM alfalfa until the USDA could provide an Environmental Impact Statement.  The USDA submitted a draft in December of 2009 admitting that GM contamination of non-GM and organic alfalfa crops is certain to occur; that GM contamination will economically impact small and family farmers; that foreign export markets will be at risk due to rejection of GM-contaminated products; and that farmers will be forced to use […]
