Great-Deal-Not-MailingThe other day I went to get the mail, you know, something that you always have to do even if you don’t want to. Well there was a sweet little gem in the bundle of mail that peeked my interest. You see there was this envelope in there that said I was Pre-Qualified from GreatPlains Lending. It saids that there would be more information inside about this great offer that they had for me and not to worry since I was pre-qualified. So I opened it up and started to read, you can see scans of the information that they sent me at the bottom of the article.

Any way, it said that I could get up to $800 as soon as tomorrow, it has a little number 2 on it. That superscript means that there is more information at the bottom of the page. So looking at that area I found the following:

Is our food actually safe to eat?

As some of you know I have personally started having a sensitivity to corn. I have no way to find out if it is due to GMO ingredients or if it is just corn in general. The reason why I can’t find out is that I have no way of knowing if a particular ear of corn has been genetically modified or not. Because of this I have to be extremely careful in what I buy and what I eat. Some might not think that this is a hard thing to do but in fact it really is. To prove this, the next time you go shopping, look at the ingredients on the label and you will find corn in most everything that you look at, even the meat. Here is a link to an incomplete list of what is a corn substance: Corn Ingredients To Avoid (The page I wanted to link to was not available at the time of this article but the link is on the page that this article links to)

For Fear Of Corn

For those with a food allergy you know just how difficult they can be when going to the store to shop for groceries. For those with a corn sensitivity or a corn allergy it makes you want to cry when you go to the store. You see all the foods that you ate when you were a kid and you can’t even be around them any more. Heck, corn alcohol is being used now for perfumes and cleaners which make things even worse. Its one thing to be allergic but when that allergy causes you to be afraid of shopping you know that there is a real problem going on. Back in the day when wheat allergies and peanut allergies were first starting to surface people would scoff at them. They would say that the person was just faking it or something. Sometimes they would say it was just to get attention or some kind of other food. No matter what in the end it was proven that those people did indeed have an allergy to those substances and food labels changed to reflect that. Now if they would just take us corn sufferers seriously and start listing things properly.

Whats Up With All The Recalls

What is it now a days. Every time you turn on the news you are seeing a story about the latest recall notice. I don’t understand why there are so many recalls. Don’t the companies believe in product safety and testing or quality control? Or is the cost of a good Q&A department too much to bare for all the greedy uncaring corporations out there. It just isn’t right or fair to the consumer for things to keep going this way.
