Knowing more about what we EAT

Good Day, God!

California Proposition 37 (see poster above) would require labeling on foods containing genetically modified (GMO) ingredients. The poster lists “Health Food” companies that have contributed AGAINST labeling (left side) and FOR labeling (right side.) The poster is intended to help us sort health food companies  out.

Much to my surprise, God, I learned that the U.S.A. and Canada are the only two “industrialized” countries that DO NOT label GMO food. So what’s the problem? Why can’t Americans be free to choose to buy or not to buy GMO foods? And how can we do that if the food isn’t labeled?

Actually, God, I think the GMO food question is just the last in a long series of unannounced food changes. Foods have been changing nutritional content — while keeping the same names — ever since SALT was refined. For example, Meat from animals raised in feedlots or cages and fed on grain has vastly more Slow Fat (omega 6) and much less Fast Fat (omega 3), the good stuff. Since You have designed us to work best on fast fats (omega 3), God, this is a nutritional disaster!

Most of us don’t realize that our food is very different from what our grandparents or great grandparents ate. We don’t know and maybe we don’t even want to know.

What I’ve learned God in thinking about this poster and GMOs is that I have an enormous frustration and distress about our American Diet. It is an overwhelming situation, God. Please help us sort it all out! Please, God, help us — bite by bite — choice by choice.
