The GMO Basics

The GMO Basics with Tricia   GMOs  are Plants or Animals that have been created through gene-splicing techniques and have been engineered with the genes from Bacteria, Viruses, or other Plants and Animals. Genetically Modified Foods are Plant Seeds that have been manipulated in a Lab with Poisonous Pesticides and Herbicides to help protect them from any Insects or Worms that might damage them. Genetically Modified Foods are created to offer an Increased Production and to enable Crops to survive Deadly Doses Weed Killers, Drought Resistance and to Promote Heartier looking Fruits and Vegetables that all look the Exact same.

Processed Foods with Tricia

Processed Foods

Today we’re learning all about processed foods and their dangerous side-effects. We are also going to be talking about some healthier alternatives! Now, you might be wondering, “What are processed foods?” Well, processed foods are basically “food-like products” that have been broken down, altered and refined, then reassembled in order to create a much more marketable product with a longer shelf life, and a much lower cost. These foods are generally found in your supermarket in brightly colored cardboard boxes, plastic packaging, and aluminum cans, and usually always have a very lengthy nutritional label. Processed Foods are nutritionally deficient. This […]


What are GMOs?

What are GMOs? What are GMOs? GMOs, or Genetically Modified Organisms, are plants or animals created through the gene splicing techniques of biotechnology (also know as genetic engineering, or GE). The experimental technology combines DNA from different species, creating unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacterial and viral genes that cannot occur in nature or in traditional crossbreeding. GMOs are the source of Genetically Modified Foods. Genetically Modified Foods are transgenic plant products: soybean, corn, canola, and cotton seed oil. These may have been engineered for faster growth, resistance to pathogens, production of extra nutrients, or any other beneficial purpose. Most all commercial GMOs […]
