Why is Wheat So Problematic?

It seems when man gets involved in trying to make things “better,” problems ensue. When this happens I am reminded of this scripture: There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death, Proverbs 14:12. The following has happened to wheat: Extreme hybridization of wheat has changed it from a four foot high grass waving in the wind to 18 inches with 50% more gluten. Norman Borlaug received the Nobel Peace prize for his […]

No GMO’s in NeoLife

GMO’s are Genetically Modified Organism’s, foreign genes are forced into the DNA of soybean, cottonseed, canola, sugar beets, and alfalfa. These genes are inserted from species such as bacteria and viruses, which have never been in the human food supply. Several animal studies have linked serious health conditions with GM food, such as infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulator, and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system. NeoLife-GNLD made the decision decades ago that GMO’s were not a […]

Why Should I Take a Multi-Vitamin?

Did you know that published in the 2002 JAMA was the recommendation that every adult should be taking a multi vitamin! Why? Because it is now known that only 20-30% of the US population meets basic dietary recommendations. If that is not enough bad news, the government knew as early as 1936 in Farm Land Mineral Depletion US Senate Document #264, the 74th congress second session stated that our farm soils are depleted of important life sustaining minerals. In 1993, The World […]

Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO’s)

What is a GMO? A GMO (genetically modified organism) is the result of a laboratory process where genes from the DNA of one species are extracted and artificially forced into the genes of an unrelated plant or animal. The foreign genes may come from bacteria, viruses, insects, animals or even humans. Because this involves the transfer of genes, GMO’s are also known as “transgenic” organisms. This process may be called either Genetic Engineering (GE) or Genetic Modification (GM); they are […]

What is Epigenetics?

Epigenetics means above the gene. It is a study of changes in genetic activity that does not encompass changes to the genetic code Conrad Waddington (1905-1975) is often credited with coining the term Epigenetics in 1942 as “the branch of biology which studies the causal interactions between genes and their products, which bring the phenotype into being” (Source). When I first heard this term it screamed to me MERCY. Because “nutrients can reverse or change epigenetic phenomena. In recent years, epigenetics has […]
