Sixty years ago my dad told me I should avoid white food to stay healthy. In other words, limit white sugar, white flour and white fat. [Back then margarine was white unless you added the yellow coloring. Crisco, containing a trans-fat, is also white.] In other words we were to avoid foods without essential nutrients and eat plenty of green [and other color] vegetables. This worked fairly well until this century.
Now we have a whole industry genetically modifying food to grow without metal nutrients. These foods are called "RoundUp Ready". The problem is we need chromium to activate insulin. Without chromium, we have "insulin resistance" aka type 2 diabetes. This is a problem if you mostly eat "fast food". You can eat all the fast food you want and still be hungry because our body does not see the essential minerals it needs to process that food. On the other hand, you can eat a smaller amount of organic food, not be full and yet not be hungry because the essential nutrients are there. Admitted there are some who travel who carry a supplement that contains cinnamon, D3 and chromium picolinate to help them metabolize sugars and starches.
In addition, we need cobalt to make Vitamin B12 that is necessary for cell division and growth. Without B12 we cannot grow or stay healthy. Magnesium, manganese, zinc, copper, and many other metals are essential for good health. Real organic food is better because it contains ALL the essential nutrients we need to correctly process the food we eat and keep our immune system healthy. The following: Cure Zone 1 and Cure Zone 2 are two good references about how necessary nutrients are for good health. The plague of diabetes is as much due to lack of essential nutrients as it is an excess of sugars and starches.
Tools have been developed to genetically modify [GM] food by splicing into that food a gene that may be a gene from other foods, a gene from animals, a gene from fungus, or even a gene from a bacterium. The idea is that the addition of this gene will impart to the food some desirable trait. The problem is that the technology is not advanced enough to control where the splice is in the food DNA. The desirable traits may be transferred, but in all probability, some of the foods natural traights will be changed. That change may or may not be desireable. The genetic splice may prevent the food from making an essential vitamin or protein. Or the splice may cause the food to make undesirable and even toxic compounds. But what is even more insane is to splice into food a gene from a bacterium that makes a toxic poison.
So the same industry that remove nutrients from food went to the anthrax family of bacteria and took a gene from bacillus thuringiensis [Bt-gene] that makes a poison known as the Bt-toxin. They then spliced this gene into corn, soy, cottonseed, canola and many other foods so that they manufacture the Bt-toxin in every cell of the plant. If an insect eats any part of the plant, the Bt-toxin will split open the insect's stomach and kill it. But this same toxin also affects all mammals, including us. It is deadly to rats, dogs, sheep, goats and cattle. [Now you know why dog-food is included in Proposition 37. Cats will not eat GM food.] This Bt-toxin can create holes in our stomachs and bowel. This is why some Medical Doctors ask their patients not to eat GM food. So, how do they know what foods are GM without labels?
The holes in our stomach and gut can allow undigested food into our blood stream. Our immune system sees this foreign material and builds up a defense. I other words, we develop an allergy to that food. I have been told that if we continue to eat that food, the allergic reaction along with a nutrient deficiency and the presene of the Bt-toxin can be the cause of many neurological problems such as autism, attention deficit disorder, multiple sclerosis [MS], or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis [ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease]. With a weakened immune system cannot protect us from all sorts of dieseases, even cancer. A recent French study shows the result of long term injestion of GM corn can often cause cancer: French Rat Study. I also highly recommend getting [or seeing] the video called: Genetic Roulette Movie.
But there is now several problems in growing genetically modified foods. Many weeds have become adapted to the herbicides glyphosate [RoundUp] and glufosinate. So now some farmers are using the herbicide 2,4-D [2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (an active ingredient of Agent Orange)]. 2,4-D is known to change DNA, thus causing cancer and birth defects.
The United States in 2012 was ranked 17th for health among industrial countries. I believe the reason for this is our great amount of sickness in the United States. I believe that most of the non-trauma illness in the United States is the result of genetically modified foods, certain vaccines and fluorides in our water. In almost all other countries, fluorides are NOT added to their waters supply, vaccines mostly avoid toxic material, and genetically modified foods, if any, are labeled. The result is far less disease including cancer and neurological disease. What is interesting is that the vaccines in Europe do not seem to cause the autism and other problems that the United States vaccines do. It makes one wonder what is in our vaccines that should not be their?
For the companies that want to control all seed, organic seeds are a problem. When planted, they grow. So in an attempt to poison the Earth and prevent the growing of organic foods, the aerial spraying of aluminum and barium began. Actually, this spraying is said to be done in order to reflect excess energy from the sun and thus contain Global Warming. But when the aluminum and barium fall to Earth, soil is poisoned so that organic crops die. RoundUp ready GM crops survive because they have been genetically engineered to not only not absorb metal nutrients, but to also not absorb toxic aluminum and barium. This is discussed in the video: What in the World are They Spraying? that is about Chemtrails.
On a slightly different topic is the use of ionizing radiation [either X-rays or gamma] to change the DNA of wheat. The wheat we now eat is not the same wheat that was grown 50 years ago. Not only does this wheat contain gluten, but it has a new protein called gliadin that is an opiate that stimulates appetite, causing us to over eat. Do read the following and watch the video therein:

Pathogens found in genetically modified food sprayed with glyphosate [Roundup]
AG CHEMICAL AND CROP NUTRIENT INTERACTIONS - CURRENT UPDATE
Don M. Huber, Emeritus Professor, Purdue University
"Glyphosate is a strong, broad-spectrum nutrient chelator that inhibits plant enzymes responsible for disease resistance so that plants succumb from pathogenic attack. This also predisposes RoundUp Ready and non-RoundUp Ready plants to other pathogens. The introduction of such an intense mineral chelator as glyphosate into the food chain through accumulation in feed, forage, and food, and root exudation into ground water, could pose significant health concerns for animals and humans and needs further evaluation. Chelation immobilization of such essential elements as CA (bone), Fe (blood), Mn, Zn (liver, kidney), Cu, Mg (brain) could directly inhibit vital functions and predispose to disease. The lower mineral nutrient content of feeds and forage from a glyphosate-supplementation. ... "
Unless things change quickly, there is a famine coming. It is not so much a famine of food, but a famine of nutritious food, a famine of essential nutrients. It is because most of the 'food' grown in the United States has been genetically modified to grow without metal nutrients. .

Sometimes you are told that the purpose of ChemTrails is to put aluminum and barium into the uppwer atmosphere to reflect sunlight and reduce the effect of greenhouse gasses on Global Warming. This is a diversion. Aluminum and barium are toxic to plants, animals and us. When these minerals come down to Earth, they poison the soil so that plants that use metal nutrients also absorb these toxins and die. Only plants designed to grow without metal nutrients [RoundUp Ready] are able to grow in the soil becuase glyphosate not only locks up essential metal nutrients, but also these toxic metals.
