Genetically Modified Foods – Understanding the dangers



Genetically Modified Foods
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Genetically modified foods

Know Your GMOs!  aka Genetically Modified Foods

The Ugly: I’m going to begin and end with the ugly, because that is what genetically modified foods are. (IMHO)  Please read this entire article, facts you should know. Let me give you the ‘reader’s digest’ version of the Ugly about genetically modified foods. GMOs are slowly making us sick and yes- killing us.  Below I have posted a documentary that will give you the full picture.  Essentially, GMO seeds are infused with poison (the same poison as in Round-up, the terrific stuff that kills weeds dead).  When a bug eats corn for instance, the bug eats the corn and his stomach explodes and it dies. WE ARE EATING the SAME CORN.  The Cows the You EAT are being Fed the same GMO- Poisoned- corn. Get the picture?? You may have heard the term ‘Round-up Corn‘. Now you know what it is.

The ‘Good’: GMO is short for Genetically Modified Organisms.  Genetically modified foods is what we are talking about here today. A GMO plant has been genetically altered and is most often found in crops such as corn, soybeans, cotton and canola.  The plants are modified using genetic engineering techniques. The main purpose for this is to resist herbicides.  The benefit is for farmers,  for less work so more crops can be harvested. There is Nothing ‘Good’ to those of us eating these foods. The Bad: One major problem with GMOs is that once planted, they run the risk of contaminating other crops planted nearby.  This is called ‘Genetic Pollution’. Up to 80% of organic farmers in the Midwest (where there are millions of acres of GM corn and soybean crops)  reported genetically modified foods planted in the area bring GMOs to fields where they are not wanted.  Winds and water runoff are full of seeds and easily plant themselves into their organic farmland and produce unwanted genetically modified food plants.  Often the farmers don’t know this has happened.

More Bad: Congress gave the FDA the authority to regulate non-meat foods.  Meat safety is at USDA.  FDA and USDA are not going to be combined into a new food safety agency. FDA has too much to do with too little money and it faces budget cuts unless Congress fixes things.   The FDA addressed the outcry by folks for labeling. FDA does not label, unless mandated by Congress (like the Nutrition Facts)  for information that they think  important to the public to know. As for GMOs, the FDA ruled that there was no scientific difference between GMO and non-GMO foods. Therefore, there was no need for labeling. You can argue the facts, you can argue the law, but the Courts have upheld FDA’s ability to make these decisions.  Is public comment rule-making perfect?  No. Does everyone have a right to be heard? Yes.  Does everyone agree with FDA? Never, but life goes on and the agency regulates, too much for some, too little for others .  Should we be mad as hell?  You bet we should. Read on- there’s hope! genetically modified foods

Genetically Modified Foods Labeling Program

From a recent NY Times article: ‘Genetic Changes to Food May Get Uniform Labeling’.   Executives from Pepsi-Co  Con-Agra and about 20 other major food companies, as well as Wal-Mart and advocacy groups that favor labeling, attended a meeting in January in Washington.  The results have brought about actions  in Washington State, Connecticut, Vermont, New Mexico and Missouri, and a growing consumer boycott of some organic or “natural” brands owned by major food companies.  Roughly 20 states are considering labeling requirements. Regardless of any legal *requirement*,  if a consumer wants to know the origin of their food, they should not have to fight for the info.  If Stevie Wonder decides he wants to wear blue, but his assistant thinks it doesn’t matter since he can’t see the difference anyway, doesn’t Mr. Wonder still have the right to be dressed in the color of his choice? Go to the website below, watch the info and sign the petition. The Ugly. The VERY Ugly. As it stands right now there is not enough NON Genetically modified foods to feed the nation.  Monsanto’s patent on seeds and their mafia tactics in taking out organic farmers would be responsible for not enough non-GMO supply, and they should be accountable for the crime of that. To learn the role that  Monsanto has in all of this genetically modified foods subject,  please visit  http://geneticroulettemovie.com Never-Before-Seen-Evidence points to genetically engineered foods as a major contributor to rising disease rates in the US population, especially among children. Gastrointestinal disorders, allergies, inflammatory diseases, and infertility are just some of the problems implicated in humans, pets, livestock, and lab animals that eat genetically modified soybeans and corn.

Understanding Undenatured Whey Protein Isolate



UNDENATURED WHEY PROTEIN ISOLATE
Understanding why is it the best- or not.

 

What makes undenatured whey protein isolate ‘undenatured’?

undenatured whey protein isolate
Whey protein is a fast-absorbing protein that has many health benefits, such as better muscle growth. Whey is a byproduct of the cheese-making process, has the highest biological value of any protein.  It is quickly absorbed into the body.

Undenatured whey protein isolate is a specific type of whey.

There are three main types of whey proteins on store shelves. The difference between the whey protein forms is the filtering process used.  Whey protein concentrates are the cheapest option.
Less expensive would be a better way to put it.  Same results as isolate, yet costs less $.

 

Thanks to recent molecular genetics, we now know that whey isolate (90 to 95 % protein) and high end whey concentrate (70 to 89% protein) produced identical results in increased muscle protein formation, and reduction of fat deposits.

After most of the fat and lactose is removed, the structure of the proteins is more important. The structure of the proteins depends on the quality of the milk.  Whey protein isolates are a bit more expensive but may have more protein per gram, yet the results with concentrate have proven to be identical.****

Whether whey protein is denatured or an undenatured whey protein isolate depends upon the process.

The processing methods of whey protein

Whey proteins become denatured due to exposure to extreme heat.  This high heat damages the integrity and amount of  vitamins, minerals and important compounds. The  manufacturing process of whey powders varies depending upon the type of whey protein being made.

Denatured and undenatured whey proteins are different and there are benefits to using the undenatured whey protein isolate. Since undenatured proteins have fewer steps in the process, and do not use the high heat method they lose fewer vitamins, minerals and contain a greater amount of bioactive compounds. Bioactive compounds can help cardiovascular health.

What does ‘isolate’ mean in undenatured whey protein isolate?

Whey isolates yield a higher percentage of pure protein and can be filtered enough to be virtually lactose free, carbohydrate free, fat free, and cholesterol free.

Sources for the cows that produce the milk for whey are the most important!

One more crucial element when choosing the right whey protein is the source of the cows that the milk comes from in the first place.  I will cover this more in depth at a later date, but for now I will tell you this- you want Organic whey, from grass-fed cows where there are no pesticides or herbicides used. Look for New Zealand cows as a source.

 

 

The best whey protein based on all of this information

The best protein for all the reasons stated above is undenatured whey protein isolate concentrate from grass-fed cows from New Zealand.

The best resource and with hands down, the absolute best tasting whey protein is IsaPro, undenatured whey protein concentrate.
You can purchase this amazing product in delicious creamy natural vanilla or meal replacement IsaLean Pro Shake. (below)

Undenatured whey protein is extracted by cold-membrane filtration. It costs more, but it’s the only whey to go!

***Read an in-depth review of the Isagenix shake by Dr. Michael Colgan here at IsagenixHealth.

Dr. Colgan is a world-renowned research scientist and a leading expert in anti-aging. He has provided nutrition, training and anti-aging programs to more than 11,000 athletes, including many Olympians. He is director of  the Colgan Institute, a research facility specializing in nutrition and exercise on athletic performance, along with prevention of chronic degenerative disease, and prevention of degeneration of the brain.
*Note: Although the majority of Isagenix IsaLean Shake protein comes from undenatured whey protein, there is some undenatured milk casein included because studies show it helps you feel full, and maintains blood sugar levels.
For more information about whey and casein studies, click here.

** Isagenix only uses undenatured whey protein at 80 percent or more protein containing very low amounts of lactose.

***Isagenix only sources dairy proteins from cows that are pasture fed in New Zealand.
