They destroy our food system, the food itself contains little to no nutrients, the soil is ruined for future crops, GMO food causes cancer and tumours, the seeds are patented and will contaminate organic seeds on neighbouring farmers crops which allows the GMO companies to sue (and bankrupt) small organic farms. There are a whole slew of reasons, I still can’t list them all off the top of my head. The health ranger (Mike Adams) does good reporting regarding GMOs, check him out.
The criticism was the hardest part about the transition for me. It takes a lot to grow a callous against people who are just trying to bring you down. But it’s not an impossible task. These people who criticize, especially your family, are just doing it because they believe they know what is best. People who continue to eat meat genuinely feel there are benefits to their lifestyle above the vegan lifestyle. Obviously they are wrong to criticise you, they probably don’t know how much their words sting, but just know that you are in the right and that what people say or think doesn’t matter. What matters is that you love yourself and the decisions that you make out of love and the greater good.
