It is important to look at how Europe is handling this. Their approach is extremely different. To use an example in another area of "health," in Europe, there are about 10,000 chemicals considered to be dangerous to human health, and which are therefore outlawed for use in personal care products. In the U.S., it is 9. (yes, 10,000 versus 9 !!) (Among the 10,000 chemicals not allowed in Europe but allowed in the U.S.: mercury, lead, Parabens, Phenylenediamine, Formaldehyde and its releasers, Phthalates, PEG, Triclosan & Triclocarban).
(Why personal care products? Because absorption through the skin to the bloodstream is a highly effective form of absorption – this is the principle behind nicotine patches and other patches http://www.sv.vt.edu.../apps/body.html ). Substances applied to the skin make their way into the bloodstream and then to every cell in the body.)
I mention this to show you the barometer of how permissive the U.S. for substances which are proven to be highly toxic to the human body.
In Europe they are looking to prove the following:
“A number of research centres in Italy are analysing whether there is a cause-and-effect link between genetically modified wheat and celiac disease stemming from the altered amino acid sequence found in the gliadin of GMO wheat.”
“In view of the above, can the Commission say whether it intends to:
explore the link between genetically modified wheat and celiac disease, as posited by a group of Italian doctors?”
