Ingredients, GMOs, Infertility, Miscarriages...

If you have any interest in ingredient labels, infertility, miscarriages, and the like - feel free to read our two latest posts on Today's Mama. Here are excerpts:

Forget Nutrition Facts, Read the Ingredients

"I have a pet peeve for people who are religious about reading Nutrition Facts but never bother to look at Ingredients. They don’t even know what they are eating! They say “Oh, it’s low fat” or “there is not much sugar in here.” Yet they fail to recognize that what they are eating is not food, but a man made substance that’s hardly edible."

GMOs: Miscarriage, Infertility, Preterm Labor, and Birth Defects

"It seems that all of us know at least one woman who struggles with infertility. I know more than one who has had a miscarriage. I know babies with birth defects. Once a rare occurrence these things are now considered normal, though just as unwelcome. Although there is generally never just one reason to blame for infertility, among the culprits are genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Consumed on a daily basis by most Americans, GMOs have made it into nearly every food on the market."
