The Talk vs. The Truth about GMO Foods

  • Brittany Stafford

    Please read the fine print, everyone: "Brought to you by America's soybean and corn farmers and their checkoffs." This organization is not a group of well-meaning farming moms. This organization is just a front for giant corporations to market a vision of pretty family farms run by hard-working families who just want to help feed America. In reality, the farms behind this campaign are giant corporate farms that grow mainly GMO soy and corn. And their crops are not feeding hungry children in American...GMO soy and corn almost always goes into processed junk food or into the feed of animals that were never meant to eat soy or corn.

Farm women who are volunteers in the CommonGround program say today’s announcement from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) about the use of antibiotics in food-producing animals will not affect their farms. In documents published today in the Federal Register, the FDA recommends phasing out the use of growth promoting antibiotics and antibiotics that increase feed efficiency in food animals. #antibiotics #FDA

Warming a calf inside the house to keep him alive is often part of the job. (Loved having one inside when I was growing up!)

Do animals raised for meat live in inhumane conditions? Healthy, content animals are simply good business for farmers and the well-being of their animals is a very high priority. Farmers and ranchers are constantly exploring new ways to raise their animals in the best way. Many participate in stewardship and certification programs that ensure the good care of their animals, according to the Animal Agriculture Alliance.

Is human health impacted by eating meat from animals given antibiotics? “The judicious use of all drugs in animals, particularly food-producing animals, is very important. The use of medicated feeds in food-producing animals is evaluated and regulated to prevent harmful effects on both animal and human health,” said Steven D. Vaughn, D.V.M., director of the Office of New Animal Drug Evaluation in FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine.
