And, spoiler alert - There are no miracle foods.
While, many foods are far more nutrient dense than others, consuming a balanced, varied diet is shown to be extremely beneficial to our gut health.
In addition, eating is meant to be a joyful experience and if we're blessed with access to good quality food, we are extremely fortunate and do well to embrace this.
So what is this talk about synthetic foods?
In a newsletter from the informative Organic Bytes, association with their mission "To protect and advocate for consumers’ right to safe, healthful food and other consumer products, a just food and farming system and an environment rich in biodiversity and free of pollutants." the article below was featured.
"Italy is set to be the first country to ban synthetic food!
Why aren’t U.S. lawmakers talking about this?
New genetically engineered Frankenfoods made with synthetic biology (what the industry calls “precision fermentation”) are already being sold in stores. They’re different from Monsanto’s first GMOs, the Roundup Ready crops that were tweaked with bacterial DNA that made them impervious to the herbicides that would normally kill them.
Roundup Ready GMOs grow from seed like normal crops. They look and taste like regular corn, soy, canola, etc. (even though they contain proteins human beings had never eaten before).
The new GMOs are 100% synthetic. Instead of growing in living plants, they are spit out of genetically engineered yeast or E. coli. Instead of having foreign DNA from another living organism, their molecules and DNA might be totally unique structures not found in nature.
These new synthetic Frankenfoods could be toxic or trigger allergies, but companies like Perfect Day, a maker of “dairy identical” synbio GMOs, say they’re just like real food.
Buyer beware! Back in the 1980s, when a manufacturer of the amino acid tryptophan decided to produce it with genetically engineered bacteria, 37 people died and 1500 were permanently disabled.
This dangerous technology shouldn’t be used in food!"
TAKE ACTION: Tell your lawmakers to ban genetically engineered Frankenfoods made with synthetic biology (so-called “precision fermentation”)!
Read on here.
Let's band together and speak up against the corruption in industry and constant attack upon essentials such as access to whole-some 'real food' brought to us by 'real farmers' with integrity. They are hero's and they need our help and support from corporate pressures to industrialize and taint food quality.
