The Future of Food - Introduction

There is a revolution going on in the farm fields and on the dinner tables of America, a revolution that is transforming the very nature of the food we eat. THE FUTURE OF FOOD offers an in-depth investigation into the disturbing truth behind the unlabeled, patented, genetically engineered foods that have quietly filled U.S. grocery store shelves for the past decade.

Are You Aware of GMOs in Your Food?

Label GMOs, Committee for the Right to Know, is a political action group that strives to bring awareness to the public regarding genetically modified (GMO) foods. Label GMOs is spearheading an upcoming ballot initiative in California to require companies to label foods that contain GMO products.

80% of foods in the U.S. grocery stores are made with GMO ingredients.

Currently, food companies are not required to label foods that contain GMOs. We think they should be - do you?

Feeding Soybeans to Poultry

There are many types of beans including soybeans that are used as ingredients in bird diets. In general, all beans and peas are good protein and energy sources for birds. The primary problem with their use is that they must be processed prior to feeding.

Most are members of the legume family of plants. One characteristicof these plants is that the fruit (beans) contain enzyme inhibitors that interfere with the digestion and utilization of nutrients in the diets. If beans are used, they must be roasted or steamed to destroy the antinutritional factors. All commercial soybean meals are processed in this way before being sold as feed ingredients. Raw soybeans should never be fed to poultry or game birds.


Soy & It’s Potentially Harmful Side Effects…

They have conveniently ignored the existent soy risks. So what exactly are the different soy side effects?

Phytic Acid Content

Soy contains large quantities of phytic acid, which when introduced into the body after consumption, prevents the body from absorbing essential minerals and vitamins in the digestive tract. This can conduce to several deficiencies and health problems even though the person is consuming a diet rich in essential vitamins and minerals.

Absorption of minerals like calcium, iodine, iron gets hampered and these essential and important minerals are for the proper functioning of our body.

Hormone Supplier

Soy contains high amounts of plant compounds that are similar to the female hormone estrogen called phytoestrogens.

Often post-menopausal women take soy products in order to control hot flashes and problems associated with hormonal imbalances. Thus, here we see that soy furnishes our body with hormones. 

However, what about babies, children and young women who do not require this hormone addition? The extra hormone content could trigger early puberty in children, which may conduce to cancer. Young women consuming a lot of soy are at a greater risk of breast cancer.


They hailed it as a wonderfood.

Soya not only destroys forests and small farmers - it can also be bad for your health

Anderson's 'eureka' moment arrived when a complex analysis of the samples she was working on revealed that the seminal liquid surrounding the slower-moving sperm contained chemicals called isoflavones. These compounds are also known as phyto-oestrogens or plant-oestrogens because they mimic oestrogen, the powerful female hormone.

These highly active compounds are found in large concentrations in soya. Indeed such are the doses of these chemicals, a woman drinking two glasses of soya milk a day over the course of a month will see the timing of her menstrual cycle alter. It has been estimated that infants who are fed soya formula exclusively receive an amount of oestrogen equivalent to five birth control pills every day.
