Coincidently a 2012 study was published, “Long term toxicity of a Roundup herbicide and a Roundup-tolerant genetically modified maize” by a group of French scientists led by Gilles-Eric Séralini, claims that a Monsanto herbicide-tolerant GM corn and Roundup, Monsanto’s brand name for the herbicide, caused severe diseases and tumor growths in rats. (Seralini, 06/24/2014, p. 2) Roundup is a common outdoors herbicide used everywhere to kill weeds, insects etc.
There is no non-GMO corn in the United States and it is grown and proliferated in the Midwest. As I stated, animals such as deer are suffering from Tumors from unexplained reasons, however, the Tumors are similar to the Tumors seen in rats from the Monsanto study. But taking this premise further, consistent with the article I wrote on Inflation. Our bodies have an immune system that protects us from foreign invaders that can cause disease and infection; however, if you have an autoimmune disease, your immune system attacks itself by mistake, causing illness. ("VCA Animal Hospital," 2014, p. 2)

What we are seeing is a bombardment of these factors on animals effectively showing the results as if they were in a lab experiment. But there not in a lab there in the same environment that our dogs play in, our cats’ encounter, and our cattle and wildlife eat and live in. We are seeing the same factors as we've seen in the lab but on a larger wider scale. It is almost impossible to protect yourself from encountering these environmental factors in everyday life. Everything and everyone is affected by the environment they live in and now we're seeing supporting evidence that proves the cascading health problems we are experiencing have a direct correlation to GMO Foods, toxic water, food, and air and plants. It is difficult and expensive for humans to buy non-GMO Foods. However, animal products contain GMO based fillers for the food supply for dogs and cats as well as most animals. The literature suggests that all these factors are leading to the rise in viruses and autoimmune disorders within our pets. In earlier articles, I referenced numerous studies utilizing high CBD cannabis related supplements to act as both a preventative, treatment and cure for these problems in humans. Animals being similar in anatomy and physiology should see the same benefit. However, the component Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) the psychoactive component in MMJ is toxic to pets. Some people think that if they enjoy something, their pets will, too. Or we think it’s funny to blow pot smoke in a cat’s face and watch her get crazy. But did you know that marijuana could be toxic to pets? Veterinarians report that they are encountering more incidents of marijuana poisoning in pets, mostly dog. (Smith, 2011, p. 1) It’s usually an accident when an animal ingests marijuana in edibles; some bud dropped on the floor or even discarded trimmings. Now we're seeing high CBD treats for dogs and cats from extracted from hemp products. Numerous articles and journals are reporting positive results from using hemp based CBD's treating autoimmune disorders, Tumors, cancers in our pets. As more people are trying these avenues as both a treatment and a preventative to diseases. Pets have taken a very large step become beloved companions and family members. It's this author’s opinion and experience these products work and I both them for myself and my pets to protect them from environmental toxins and disease. One caution is to read the label and do your due diligence to see what fillers were used in making the pet food and confirm no GMO products were included in the recipe. This way the pets will not be ingesting the problem and cure at the same time. There are several veterinarians that recommend these products and support their use. Searching the web will no doubt give you several veterinarians to consult.
