General Mills announced Thursday that it will no longer use genetically modified ingredients (GMOs) in its Cheerios breakfast cereal, and says the cereal will taste the same.

The company says the cereal formula has not changed, only the way its ingredients are handled and sourced.

Cheerios have always been made with no GMO oats but the small amount of corn starch used will now come from non-GMO corn and the sugar, non-GMO pure cane sugar.

GMOs are foods that have been scientifically altered to tolerate herbicides. Some believe this process can cause health problems and environmental damage.

Cheerios will now have the words “not made with genetically modified ingredients” printed on the boxes.

“Why change anything at all?” asked General Mills vice president of global communications Tom Forsythe in a blog post.

We did it because we think consumers may embrace it.”

Good call Tom, …

Question Tom: How old are you?

My interest in inquiring is to understand why it takes some people (an amount of time), to figure out that God doesn’t make mistakes.

Corn, wheat, oats, rice or beans, God made them the way they were supposed to be. God also made Homo sapiens the way they’re supposed to be, “embrace” them with love, truth and respect and they will reciprocate.

Forsythe claims the move was not brought on by public pressure or by safety concerns and referred to an earlier statement outlining the company’s stance on GMO ingredients.

Bad call Tom, …

Human nature 101, never look your customers in the eyes, and/or, (put it in writing), that you’re not concerned with their safety.

Never discount the fact that even the least educated of us understand the difference between good and bad.

Although the progressive liberals in academia have been making great strides in diminishing the capacity for original thought, there are still more than a few of us out here with God-given common sense.

The poison that science applies to our food supply, might not kill a human being as (quickly) as it kills an insect, albeit you can be sure that “no substance” on this “Great Big Beautiful Blue” planet we live on labeled with a…

..skull and cross bones, is in any way “beneficial” to human beings.

Continuing…

“On safety – our number one priority – we find broad global consensus among food and safety regulatory bodies that approved GM ingredients are safe,” read the statement.

Question: What statement would that be Tom? 

The statement below that ascribes to the fact that General Mills has not moved to expand it’s “No GMO” policy to any of its other cereals, – that statement Tom?

Personal testimonial: I personally eat Cheerios 2 to 3 times a week, I really like Cheerios. I also like cornflakes, and raising brand, but what I like most of all, (especially since I’ve been writing this blog), is knowing that the men and women that I trust, (which of course pretty much encompasses everyone) in America at some level, …

I don’t want the engineer that designed my automobile to have made a mistake anywhere between the license plates.

Nor do I want the industries that process what I eat make a mistake, or worse – add something to my diet that neither I or God would approve of.

Homo sapiens are not simply touted to be the smartest creatures on this planet, Homo sapiens are “indeed” the smartest creatures on this planet, and don’t you forget it.

Also don’t you forget, education does not beget intelligence, intelligence begets education.

Truth forges understanding, I’ll be back tomorrow
