This is another hot topic that needs to get a little air-time. “Genetically modified food” just plain sounds scary. Remember the movie, “Soylent Green”? It conjures up all kinds of images including putting micro-chips under our skin so we can be more easily managed.

Who really knows what that crap is. Obviously, there hasn’t been a long enough time-line for testing of genetically modified food for us to know what kinds of cancers and birth defects they’re going to cause 20 years from now. Of course you and I want to know one thing: Do Those Weird Foods Cause Gout?


What IS Genetically Modified Food…Really?

A genetically engineered organism is one that’s had it’s genetic make-up altered using modern techniques of genetic engineering (duh). What that really means is that they take DNA molecules from different sources and combine them with other molecules to create a new set of genes. The best example is combining fish genes with tomatoes – which is a genetically modified food – so they will withstand colder temperatures and produce a larger yield in more adverse growing conditions.

Basically they’re just trying to produce a quality in a given food that didn’t exist before the genetic tampering began. Of course, like so many other things in the world, it’s all done in the name of humanity: we need to feed the World! Bullsh!t. It’s been proven that organic farming practices focusing on diversity can feed the world just as easily, with far more nutritive value of the foods.

Producing a higher yield at a lower cost just increases profits and that is the real name of the game. We’re all trying to make the best living we can but when the game gets so big the corporate mind seems to take over and it survives on one thing: profit.

What Should We Do About These FrankenFoods?

The FDA says these genetically modified foods are ok…and if you believe those wack-o’s you probably believe in the tooth fairy and the Easter bunny.

Here’s my point…why take the chance? There’s a reason it’s controversial. And what do most controversial topics come down to? Like I said before: money. We’re not getting paid to be the lab rats for this one.

The really fascinating thing that is only speculated about but seems to have logical merit, is the connection between Big Agriculture, Big Pharma, the AMA, and the Insurance Industry. There is obviously monetary motivation at each turn to come up with foods that are untested, not the highest quality, and of questionable nutritional value.

Because these genetically modified foods are all considered “foods”, and they basically look the same as the naturally grown ones, they have so far been able to sneak by with no governmental approval from the FDA, USDA, or the EPA. Because there is now more and more evidence linking GMOs with strange, usual and widespread health conditions that didn’t exist 50 years ago, new labeling laws are now finding their way into legislation.

What does this have to do with gout? Well, like I was talking about on my “the environment” page, getting gout has a lot more to do with the way we live our lives than just the food we eat. What kind of free radical damage are genetically modified foods causing? Exactly…they don’t know yet.

What will they find as time goes on? Will they link genetically modified foods and heart disease? GMOs and diabetes? Cancers, immune problems?

  ☆ Just say NO to genetically modified foods.


Bert Middleton

“I know your pain. Let me help you kill your gout for good!  And teach you to advocate for yourself and take ownership of your gout recovery, by showing you how to live the gout-free lifestyle.” Two decades ago, Bert Middleton found himself diagnosed with gout. Like 8.3 million other people in the United States (approximately 4% of the population), he struggled helplessly with the physical, emotional, social, and financial impact that gout left unchecked can have on your life. Prescription drugs were of limited help… And the terrible pain of regular gout attacks left him unable to enjoy even the simplest daily pleasures. His marriage was suffering. His finances were spiraling due to the impact gout had on his ability to work. And maintaining a social life was often nearly impossible. Tophi surgeries left him in terrible pain.  And he found himself depressed … and angry … that gout was stealing years of his life.

Until one day, after hundreds of hours of research and self-experimentation, Bert finally had a breakthrough and created a blueprint for a way of living that would prove to be “the answer” to living gout-free for nearly a decade now. Today, Bert and his “Gout Wife” Sharon devote their evenings and weekends to educating other gout sufferers on how to live the gout-free lifestyle. Showing others his 911 Emergency Response Gout Recovery Plan for getting PAINFUL gout attacks under control in as little as 4 hours. And then, how to make daily choices that keep gout under control for GOOD! So you can finally start LIVING again!
