To the Editor:

Every holiday the KDH prints a letter extolling the virtues of vegetarianism.

Since the age of the Genetically Modified Organism and pesticides and herbicides, eating some fruits and vegetables will be dangerous to your health. Some GMOs produce their own poison. You can’t wash it off.

Pigs and chickens refuse to eat GMO corn.

Sugar from GMO sugar beets kill bees.

What fruits and vegetables are safe? What is GMO or non-GMO? Without labeling, the public doesn’t know.

The Vegetarian recommends Tofu as an alternative to meat.

Ninety-three percent of soybeans are GMO.

Unfermented soy products (whether GMO or not) reduce assimilation of calcium, magnesium, copper, iron and zinc.

It may cause pancreatic disorders, it contributes to thyroid disorders, promotes kidney stones, weakens the immune system, increases the chance of breast cancer and infertility and many other ill effects.

It is the anti-nutritional food.

Drinking just two glasses of soy milk daily is enough to alter a woman’s menstrual cycle.

If you feed soy to your infant or child, these effects are magnified a thousand-fold.

Infants fed soy formula may have up to 20,000 times more estrogen circulating through their bodies as those fed other formulas.

Everyone wants to eat clean and healthy food.

Touting a vegetarian diet as more healthy ignores the possibility of poisons, viruses and bacteria that are in and on today’s fruits and vegetables.
