Feel misinformed about GMO's? So do most people. The truth is it sounds very scary, but once you break it all down to the basics it's pretty simple and whole lot less scary.
Genetic traits added to certain crops have only improved the crops and is very specific on what is being targeted.
There are only a few crops that have genetically modified traits in the market today. And those traits have been extensively tested, it takes nearly 15 years for one trait to be approved!
I don't know about you but that makes me feel really safe, knowing what goes into the testing. Not to mention that using genetically altered crops allows farmers to produce more on less.
Genetically modified crops show no difference in nutritional value, look, or taste versus non-GMO's. And because of GMO's we apply less pesticides to our crops.
GMO's have only made the Ag industry better. Safer. And more confident in what we are growing can feed the world.

Well, really about three versions of this one. But, I love how happy Elliette is in this one.
My symptoms with IVF have seemed to decreased some. The nausea has really gotten to me the last week or so. I've started decreasing what I eat at meals and aiming for smaller meals most of the day. But, that hasn't helped very much. I even resorted to my peanut butter sandwiches and sipping on coke that helped so much when I was pregnant with Elliette. And that didn't help at all either. I seriously hate when my stomach hurts it makes doing anything just that more difficult. It isn't so bad if it's part of the day or even a few days at a time. But, all day, every day. That is really not easy. And it seems that my doctors have pretty much exhausted their techniques for anti-nasuea medicine.
But, the best part is when I tell Ellie that my belly hurts she says "Sorry Mommy" and she kisses it to make it feel better.
I love being a farm wife. But, being a mommy pretty much rocks!
