Unfortunately this is how things are progressing.
Food is big business and comes with Big profits.
However under the guise of the ‘feed the world’ campaigns we now consume foods that are altered considerably from their original form and genetic structure.
Hybridisation, genetic modification, genetic enhancement, fortified, ‘enhanced’ – what does it all mean?
Here is some serious food for thought.
Genetically Modified Foods are sneaking into our supermarket isles and shopping trolleys more and more.
In America, they already form a large part of the commercial food supply.

Emed uncovers the most important facts you need to know about GMOs so you can make an informed decision about the foods you choose to eat.
The results of a survey surprised many researchers recently when it was revealed that high-fat, high-calorie fast food is actually more healthy than some baby foods.

Official dietary guidelines have told us to avoid saturated fats for over 50 years now and encouraged us to eat more polyunsaturated vegetable fats like margarine.
If you listen to the advertising material of margarine companies you may also think that margarine is actually good for your heart health.
A meta-analysis published in the British Medical Journal in early February of 2013 has now brought this information into question.
This research review reports that contrary to popular belief; rates of death from all causes, including cardiovascular and coronary heart disease are increased when dietary saturated fats are replaced with polyunsaturated omega 6 fats.
In this article Emed exposes the truth on the longstanding misconceptions surrounding margarine, dietary fats and heart disease.
It’s our daily drink… now more affordable than ever.
But is your glass of milk really only HALF full?
Up to 12 percent of your carton could be permeate – a by-product of dairy production. The more permeate mixed in, the less farm milk needed, the cheaper each bottle is to produce.

Emed explains the state of our milk industry and the raw milk revolution.
