I received an email back from Whole Foods Market that said in the first line, “Thank you for taking the time to write to Whole Foods Market. We do not have any affiliation with that company.”
Here is my update for this post.

I’ve been looking on the net for more info on what I posted below. I really hope it isn’t true. I know that they have caved into Monsanto about GMO foods but looking for more info on this new topic. I have emailed Whole Foods to inquire. I will update this as soon as I find out more.
Association, I have just found out that Whole Foods Market has been bought our by the Monsanto Company.
I am ANGRY! I have been a loyal customer of The Whole Foods Market for years.
Monsanto is the company that brought us Bovine Growth Hormone (BGH or BST) which you may of heard about. This chemical caused breast infections in the cows that was administered to (just think about drinking mink from infected cow breasts) and may cause cancer in humans… Great!.
Monsanto also is the leader in genetically modifying foods (GMO foods). These foods are genetically designed so that they produce pesticides all by themselves, automatically. Just imagine plants that actually produce the pesticide “Roundup” while they are growing. And then we are supposed to eat these plants? I don’t know about you, but I see a HUGE problem here.
Dr. Joseph Mercola posted a great article about genetically modified foods. Here are somethings that they cause:
- Lung damage in mice
- Cancer in rats
- Kidney, liver, heart and spleen problems in rodents
- Immune system diseases in rodents
- Five-fold increasein mortality, lower birth weights, and the inability to reproduce in rats
- Sperm damage in mice
- Alter DNA functioning in mice
- Sterility and fertility problems in pigs, cows and buffalo
Is this not enough of a reason that they should not be seen as safe for the general public? …Duh!
This is a criminal act! Purposely endangering peoples health and lives.
Here is a link to Get Fit Now Radio where Eleni K and I talked about GMO foods. http://getfitportland.wordpress.com/2011/01/25/jan-25th-gmos/ Listen to this and pass it on.
Again, I am pissed about this! Monsanto lobbied the US government to ok GMO foods as safe. They are mostly banned in the EU and the US threatened sanctions against Europe if they didn’t allow GMO foods to be imported and grown there. You can see how a large multinational corporation like monsanto can control things with lobbying. I can’t believe that the Obama’s could allow this.
Do me a favor. Help spread the word about this. About what whole foods is turning into. It’s free to do it on the internet…Thank God!
