Obviously there is no room for GMOs in truly healthy food products, which is why it is truly vital that you understand the nature of GMOs and how they are oftentimes hidden in commercial food products. It may very well shock you to know just how prevalent GMOs are within the food supply. It’s truly amazing that modified products continue to go unlabeled despite being linked to organ damage — among a barrage of other conditions — in a prominent review of 19 studies.
In fact, nearly 93-95% of US soybeans are genetically modified in order to resist powerful weed-killers that were found to be killing the actual soybeans as well as the weeds. Following current trends, genetically modified food products will makeup the majority of the future food supply if a change is not made. For now, that change has been shot down by the FDA — the very organization tasked to defend public health. Just recently, the agency deleted around 1 million signatures from the GMO labeling campaign ‘Just Label It.’
This move means that consumers will continue to stay in the dark about whether or not what they’re eating is compromised of genetically modified ingredients…
Statistics show how GMO crops and ingredients have skyrocketed in even the past few years. Here are statistics as of 2009-2010:
Genetically modified soybeans currently make up for 93-95% of the US soybean supply.
Genetically modified corn currently makes up for 86% of the US corn supply.
Genetically modified cotton currently makes up for 93% of the US cotton supply.
Genetically modified Hawaiin papaya currently makes up for 93% of the Hawaiian papaya supply.

Author Anna Kavanaugh had retired from her career as a novelist in 2008, but has this week made a shocking announcement of her return. Her resurfacing comes as a welcome surprise to dedicated fans who held out hope this day would come, and it has come in with a roar. In line with the author’s previous reputation in tackling the controversial, she is holding back no punches.
Altering DNA. Genetically modified human food sources. These are disturbing topics, one that few consumers fully understand and have stirred controversy since the USDA approved the growing of genetically modified foods and likewise, the FDA stamped approval on the sale of meat and dairy products from cloned animals and their offspring in 2008. Of no small matter either; the administration further ruled that no labels were necessary on such products sold to the public. The same controversy has similarly troubled consumers in Europe. These accepted practices, yet still suspiciously lacking in public disclosure regulation or consideration, span concerns across the board. Serious ethical, moral, spiritual, humane, and human health questions all arise, yet go unanswered.
Author Anna Kavanaugh is outraged and fearful of where our organic food supply is heading, and to what end. In her upcoming trilogy series, “The Cord of Callows” being three installment novels “Provenance”, “Creed” and “Covenant” the author opens fire on these practices and minces no words in describing her fears of the nightmare we may be imposing on future generations.
“It is incomprehensible to me that in this day and age we as people are stripped of our right to choose what we put into our bodies, and the bodies of our children.” Kavanaugh explains.
