Getting to the Root of How GMO Plants Harm Food Production and Your Health
By Dr. Mercola
Optimal health is one of my passions and nutrition is one of the best tools I know of on to achieve it. But the key to getting healthy organic vegetables, of course, is the health of the soil in which it’s grown.Research scientist Dr. Elaine Ingham1 is internationally recognized as an expert on the benefits of sustainable soil science.She was formerly an associate professor at Oregon State University and well on her way to full-tenure professorship when her research on genetically modified organisms (GMOs) led to her being forced to resign.The biotech industry, led by Monsanto, funds a large part of the budget for Oregon State University, and her findings were not welcome as it threatened the University’s funding.Dr. Ingham went on to develop a company called Soil Foodweb Inc., which helps farmers and gardeners understand the health of their soil. The company analyzes soil samples and also helps develop a composting plan that is specifically targeted for the plants you’re seeking to grow.She’s also the chief research scientist at Rodale Institute which I plan on personally visiting in the near future. I’ll provide you with some video of that visit afterwards.One of my new passions is to understand, at the deepest levels, how to achieve high performance agriculture by grilling the leading experts in the world, then digesting the information and sharing it with you in easy to understand and apply bits.
