Around this time last year, The U.S. Department of Agriculture approved America’s first genetically modified apples. This was no big news to some, a small setback for others, but a really big deal for people like us. People who care about food safety, health and those who see the bigger picture of what can possibly come next.
A Society Devoid Of Choice
Have you ever read the book, “The Giver” by Lois Lowry? It was required reading for many in grade school. For those who haven’t read it, I will quickly catch you up.
“The Giver” is set in a proposed “utopia-like” futuristic society where everyone looks and acts exactly the same. The world is devoid of color, everything is in black in white. On the surface, it seems like a perfect dream land. There is no competition and no rebellion. But with those ideals, there comes a catch The society has eliminated all choice. No one has the right to choose anything about their life, and they don’t care.
They are all devoid of love, passion and real emotion.
Although this book was written 15 years ago and seemed like mere science fiction at the time, it now is beginning to replicate an eerie reality of where our nation is going today, right now.
Remember Last Year? GMO Apples Were Breaking News
March of last year, The U.S. Department of Agriculture approved America’s first genetically modified apples (and potatoes too).
Top headlines bragged, “Amazing non-browning GMO apples and potatoes from two different companies have officially passed FDA inspection. They are as safe and nutritious as non-modified versions, says the agency. Will customers agree?”
Their appeal? They don’t turn brown when bruised or sliced.
“Arctic Apple, which we’ve covered before, is the brand name for the two varieties of apple that have just been approved. You’ll be able to get either a Granny Smith or a Golden Delicious version, both of which have been modified to remove the enzyme that turns an apple brown after it’s been exposed to oxygen in the air.” – The Modern Farmer
What’s The Big Deal About GMO Apples?
Going back to “The Giver” for a minute. The premise of the story is not far off to where we are heading as a generation. The big deal is not only dealing with the health repercussions of GMO’s, but that we soon will have no choice. No choice as to what we put into our bodies. And soon, possibly no choice as to whether we have vaccines in our bodies.
GMO Health Risks and Lack Of Regulation
It is really no secret at this point that genetically modified organisms have been linked to serious health risks including:
- Severe allergies
- Infant Mortality
- Immune dysfunction
- Accelerated aging
- Disregulation of genes associated with cholesterol synthesis, insulin regulation, cell signaling, and protein formation.
- Adverse effects of the liver, kidney, spleen and gastrointestinal system.

Lack of Safety Testing In GMO’s
The Food and Drug Administration waived all levels of safety testing in 1996 before approving the commercialization of these crops. Nothing more than voluntary research is necessary, and the FDA does not even want to see the results.
The Food and Drug Administration, the very administration that is supposed to looking out for the health and well-being of consumers, continues to move BACKWARD with only one goal in mind.
It’s clear that goal can’t possibly be health, and it’s certainly not safety, as they have made that clear in 1996 when they declared that safety testing is not necessary.
Genetically modified organisms have been on fire in the media for being highly questionable in safety, causing major giants like Chipotle and Target to re-consider and eliminate them from their food sources. Regardless of these facts, genetically modified apples will still be bought.
Will It End Here? Vaccines In Apples??
Will it end at “JUST” genetically modified apples? There is no conceivable way that this will end any time in our lifetime without a radical path change.
Have you been to Liberty Science Center lately? Have you seen this sign? “Food to fight disease bite by bite”????
It seems like this concept would fall in line with time travel, parallel universes and aliens, but sadly, it’s reality. Will these apples soon turn into mandatory vaccines? (Are they already?) Will we be ingesting vaccines without our knowledge?
It’s extremely possible and extremely frightening.
What Can We Do?
Our personal choice and freedom is diminishing more and more every day. But while we still have a small voice, we can work together to create a big change. We are still the consumers, and as of right now, we still hold the power.
- If we do not buy, they cannot sell. Choose only organic, NON GMO labeled certified produce.
- Tell your legislators, family and friends that you want the right to know what’s in your food and your vaccines!
- Download the NON-GMO Shopping Guide from the Institute for Responsible Technology and the Non-GMO Project for a list of brands that are made without genetic engineering.
- Create a petition and make it go viral.
- Let your grocery manager know that you want them to support labeling and GMO education.
- Share this information with others.
Continue to fight for the FREEDOM OF CHOICE and the freedom to know what is in our food and our vaccines. If we do not take a united stand and put an end to this now, we will soon be nothing but prisoners in our own United States of America where “Land of The Free” will be nothing but memory.
Love & Light,
