GMO Free Meat

GMO Free Meat

The latest scientific studies are coming out showing GMO foods causing cancer and declining reproductive rates in rats based on a 90 days study. We have to believe that Geneticly Modified Oraganisms (GMO) will have long term effects in humans, no matter what the Food and Drug Administration is told by large corporate GMO agribusiness producers. Russia became the first country to suspend the import and use of American corn following the release of a study that suggests a link to breast cancer and other organ damage. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has also ordered it's own review in the research of GMO foods. This could possibly lead to more state/nations suspending food imports from the US because of GMO foods and fears of harmful health effects. These same trials also found minuscule amounts of commonly used weedkiller (Roundup) too. Both the GM corn and Roundup are the creation of US bio tech company Monsanto.

The US currently does not require labeling on any foods that have been genetically modified (GM) also commonly referred to as GMO or Genentically Modified Organisms. A genetically modified organism (GMO) or engineered organism (GEO) is an organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. These techniques, generally known as recombinant DNA technology, use DNA molecules from different sources, which are combined into one molecule to create a new set of genes. This DNA is then transferred into an organism, giving it modified or novel genes. Transgenic organisms, a subset of GMOs, are organisms that have inserted DNA from a different species. GMOs are the constituents of genetically modified foods. These foods can be any food on the market today including beef steaks, beef, pork, chicken, vegetables, grains, cereals, spices, and others. Basically, the total spectrum of "Food" is acceptable to GMO or cross GMO contamination. For example if cattle are fed grain, then you have GM food entering into our food chain all the way up to the processed can goods on the store shelves.

Phil Jerde of Great Plains Buffalo Ranch in South Dakota said today, that buffalo, more specifically his buffalo meat which are grass fed and finished, unlike other buffalo producers who finish grass fed buffalo on grains, have no possibility of being cross contaminated by GMO grains or through supplements in their diets at all. He clearly states that Great Plains Grass Fed Buffalo may be one of the only meats on the market that can promise to be GMO Free meat, since most livestock today are fed grains that potentially are GMO or finished with GMO grains in a feed lot prior to processing.

Great Plains Buffalo Ranch recently introduced a Buffalo Burger to the market that offers higher levels of Omega 3 than all other meats based on his buffalo burger having more "Good Fat", which contains the important nutrients of Omega 3, where other buffalo burger is sold as "Lean". When purchasing buffalo, Phil highly recommends staying away from "Lean" buffalo because it is missing the vital natural ingredients to better taste and health.
