# 2 –Here’s a quick astrological update from Chris Flisher, host of the weekly radio
show “Turning of the Wheel” on Contact Talk Radio…
Responsibilityshifts. Unexpected results.
6/13/2011 ~ Saturn, Uranus, and Pluto are all going
to be in a tight alignment, followed by the addition of Mercury later in the
week. Together these planets represent an enormous shift in responsibility,
unexpected results, and a lasting impact on the entire planet. Saturn holds on
in Libra offering balance and equality, while Uranus charges in Aries urging direct and unexpected rebellion, change, and invention, while Pluto in Capricorn delivers
lasting, foundational results. When Mercury enters the scene in Cancer we can
expect a strong statement of a new direction. This could mean a dramatic
reversal of roles and policies on the world stage. Expect to see profound
changes in several long-held regimes and rulerships.

# 4 – Here’s an informative article from Ana & Crystal at The Fresh Team about how to avoid GMO foods. Unfortunately, it seems like it’s going to be harder and
harder to do. I was really disappointed to learn that about half of the papayas from Hawaii are now GMO….
Are you eating genetically modified (GM) foods? Chances are, the answer is yes. Even if you shop mostly on the perimeter of the grocery store, most likely your cooking oil has GM corn or canola in it and your sugar came from GM beets. In fact, GM ingredients show up in 75% of processed foods in US groceries, but they’re not labeled, so consumers cannot discern GM products from natural ones.
FRESH is asking the FDA to mandate GM labeling now, but until that happens, here’s how you can avoid GM foods in your diet:
- Choose organic
To earn the “certified organic” label, a product cannot contain any GM
ingredients, so buying organic foods is the easiest way to ensure your
food is GMO-free. This applies even to products labeled “made with organic
ingredients,” which must be 100% GMO-free, even if not all their
ingredients meet other organic standards.
- Look for “non-GMO” labels
Though you’re unlikely to see a product labeled as containing GM
ingredients (at least in the US), many companies want consumers to know that a product is GMO-free. Some limit their claim to only high-risk
ingredients, like corn, soy and the others listed below.
- Check the PLU code on produce
In many groceries, fruits and vegetables are marked with a produce look-up (PLU) code. You can identify different types of produce with the following rules:
Standard four digit PLU numbers (XXXX)
- Genetically Modified:
four digit PLUs prefixed with an 8 (8XXXX)
four digit PLUs prefixed with a 9 (9XXXX)
- Steer clear of products containing high-risk
If you can’t find an organic or clearly labeled non-GMO alternative, you
can protect yourself by simply not buying products that contain
ingredients most likely to be genetically modified. These include:
Corn: corn flour, corn meal, corn starch, corn oil, corn gluten,
and corn syrup; sweeteners like fructose, dextrose, and sucrose
Soy: soy lecithin, soy protein, soy flour, isoflavone; vegetable
oil and vegetable protein; tofu, tamari, tempeh, and some alternative meat and dairy products not specifically labeled as free of GM-soy
Canola: canola oil (also known as rapeseed oil)
Cotton: cottonseed oil
Margarine: almost always contains GM oil (either soy, corn,
cottonseed, or canola)
Sugar: GM sugar beets were recently approved for planting. To avoid
GM sugar, purchase organic bulk sugar and products sweetened with 100% cane sugar, evaporated cane juice, agave, or organic/non-GMO sugar.
Artificial Sweeteners: aspartame (NutraSweetTM and EqualTM)
Meat, eggs, and dairy products: Avoid products from animals who
have eaten GM-feed and dairy products containing the GM hormone rBGH/rBST
Papayas: About half of the Hawaiian papaya crop is now GM.
Vegetables: A small number of zucchini, sweet corn, and yellow
crookneck squash are GM.
- Carry a non-GMO shopping guide
Several handy tools and tip sheets are available to help you make informed choices at the grocery store. Here are a few to choose from:
- True Food Shoppers’ Guide from the Center for Food Safety, available in print and as a free mobile app for iPhone and Android
- The Non-GMO Project Online Product Directory, also available as a free app for the iPhone and iPod Touch
- The Non-GMO Shopping Guide from the Institute for Responsible Technology and the Non-GMO Project, available online, as a PDF download, or in a handy pocket version
For more information on the dangers
posed by GMOs and why we can’t continue to ignore these risks, see Ana &
Crystal’s blog post What You Don’t Know About GMOs CAN Hurt You.
# 5 – And a little Abraham to end on…
“When you feel gratitude, often you are looking at a difficulty that you have overcome, but there is still some of that struggle” vibration present. The state of appreciation is seeing whatever you are looking at through the eyes of Source. . . You could walk down a crowded street with all kinds of things that a lot of other people would find reason to criticize or worry about, and you would not have access to them because your vibration of appreciation is picking out for you things of a different vibrational nature.” — Abraham
Best wishes, “Zippy”
