I've been feeding raw for 8 years and fully believe in the diet. However this sensationalist, scare tactic type thing is EXACTLY what makes the general public think that we raw feeders are just nutjobs.
Don't know where you found this info, but BT corn is already breeding BT resistant corn ear worms & round up ready stuff is already getting roundup resistant weeds. So much so on the RR crops that Monsanto is breeding 2-4-D resistant crops & planning to market them so farmers can use the herbicide we did away with in the name of safety. Using stuff like this only creates new problems. Anything I have read has also said most grains have less nutrition then old time crops. We are raising more food with less nutrition. JMHOGMO could be partially the answer to world food supplies as they are more resistant to crop diseases. I will happily eat GMO and so will my future dog.
DoneI want you to start a new thread simply so I can continue reading what you have to say! Nutrition is a large gaping hole in my knowledge of biology.

Linda apology accepted and i can totally understand where your coming from. If my brother had his way he would give ozzy pedigree! As long as my dogs eat a high quality food with meat and veges im good. Jessie cant and she is mine she is on RC anallergenic (NZ recipe) and omg her coat i adore atm so so soft and smooth and silky! must be the RC anallergenic! her skin is also clearing up massively!Honestly don't care.
I've fed my dogs with 'commercial pet food kibble' for the past twenty or more years. None of my dogs have died before the age of 14, irrespective of breed, and were fit and healthy all their lives.
My current dog eats a top end kibble, looks fantastic on it and is fit enough to run for miles. His food has no colours or artificial preservatives ( unlike the rubbish I feed myself with) but other than that I don't concern myself with the content.
Can't see what the issue is here. If I'm ill-informed then, thank goodness, cos I'd hate to know all this stuff to worry about.
PS. Apologies to all out there with dogs with allergies, etc. If I were in your situation then obviously my opinion might be different.
Blue Buffalo has actually helped improve my dog, thank you. And maybe if you had posted that GMOs don't affect all dogs (or my dog, at least) you might not have scared everyone.When did I ever use those terms interchangeably? I know I mentioned organic and pasture-raised together, but I never said they were the same.. what I was getting at is that organic and/or pasture raised are preferred over conventionally-raised meat. When did I show signs of confusing homemade with commercial, or GMO with organic, ect?
And I can read food labels just fine, thank you. I've researched my ingredients, and I've learned of the meanings behind all of the stickers, seals, symbols, phrases, claims, and whatnot. Turns out most of those claims don't mean much, particularly "all-natural," and so you're better off buying your food at a farmer's markets
Blue Buffalo, for example, is deemed as a top-quality dog food. Yet some of its products contain ingredients like canola oil (likely GMO), non-organic vegetables (sprayed with pesticides and herbicides), caramel (straight-up sugar), synthetic vitamins, and non-pastured and non-organic meat sources that likely came from factory farms (possibly fed hormones/antibiotics/GMO feed). Sounds like there's some toxins hankering around in there to me. But if you so strongly disagree, then so be it.
You know, you keep accusing me of saying things that I never actually said, and with that you're trying to undermine everything I say, and that's just not fair. You say you're "extremely practiced in reading comprehension." Well then why do you struggle so much to understand the points I am trying to lay across? No one here has showed as much difficulty as you have, and none of them claim to be "extremely practiced."
I didn't come here to argue over minor grammatical technicalities. If you have something to offer the conversation from a scientific aspect, then please do. The more learning that goes on, the better. I'm always open to new info or ways of thinking if there is good science to back it up. But grammar, really? This isn't an English class
I came here with the intention to help inform. And if not on the dangers of dog food, then at least about the dangers of GMOs. I'm new here, so how was I supposed to know that most people here have already done "extensive research" on their pet's diet? Most people I know, including myself at one point, didn't even know that there was a significant difference between brands of dog food except for price. And I had to learn the hard way.
But wow, you just keep making me feel sorry for even trying. With that, I'll take my leave. You can go ahead and butcher what I (never) said in this last post, too.
No silly, they balance each other, for we cant have NUTRIENTS without ANTI-NUTRIENTS, or else the world and the universe itself would collapse in on itself into one super massive black hole! :rofl:If it comes into contact with a nutrient, does it explode?
Yes I do remember seeing a documentary on the PIVIT channel about how if organic farmers' crops are cross pollinated by GMO crops, than they become one one Monsanto's farmers whether they want to or not :/ it also mentioned other things that were very enlightening. I try not to buy anything made by Monsanto and I encourage others to do the same.Yes, you've got that right. It's quite unfair, isn't it? If anything, Monsanto should pay the farmer for loss of non-GMO crop. But as of late, I've been hearing of some success stories where judges ruled in favor of the farmers, so that's a good sign
