And a very Happy Wednesday to you all. It’s chilly here in Olympia and we might just get our first real snow of the winter on Saturday. Crossing my fingers that it happens. I need to get out and do some snowshoeing soon or I’ll got nutso….but then I’m in the dysfunctional playhouse, so nutso is a very normal reaction here. J
What shall we talk about today?
Oh heck, let’s talk about GMO food. Now I’m sure you’re asking yourself what that has to do with dysfunctional behavior, aren’t you? Well hang in there; I promise to make the connection.
By now we all know about genetically modified food, right? And hopefully everyone is aware that GMO food is bad for us, right? I mean, the scientific data is piling up and it all points to some rather disturbing problems with the products being made by Monsanto and others; is there anyone who still believes that GMO food is good for our health?
So that leads me to this question: if we know it is bad for us, then why do we buy it? The number one answer to that question seems to be an economic one; GMO food is cheaper than organic food, and Lord knows price is important. But isn’t our health more important?
If a person has a little child, and it has been proven that the food one feeds that child is harmful, then isn’t it an act of dysfunction to continue to feed that food to the child? What am I missing here? How can anyone justify feeding poison to their child simply because it is cheaper than healthy food?
There really is no justification for it; there are only unanswered questions.
