Off Mountain Road, in Loudoun County, Todd Morrison has a small farm and, when he first moved in, and they sprayed herbicide, everything turned brown in the field in front of his house except the soy; he got concerned. We should all be concerned.
What was in the soy that remained unaffected by the herbicide spray?
The truth was the soy seeds had been genetically modified and that began Todd’s quest to understand what that meant, finishing up with his campaign against genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and in favor of organic and community farming, not just on his place but throughout the Loudoun County area.
Todd learned that seeds have been modified with DNA from bacteria, viruses, other plants, even animals. In other words, there is even a cross-species GMO hybrid created (plant with animal) with this genetic engineering. There is also mounting evidence that GMOs bring with them health problems.
Worse yet, if you’re trying to avoid GMOs, Todd reported, that 80% of our processed food has GMOs.
