Toxicity Of GMO Foods

Recommended Posts

I just received a new email from Spilling the Beans regarding this new study which shows organ damage in rats and mice from GM corn and soybeans.

GMOs Linked to Organ Disruption in 19 Studies

A new paper shows that consuming genetically modified (GM) corn or soybeans leads to significant organ disruptions in rats and mice, particularly in livers and kidneys

And this is surprising because......?

Not to you and me..

How vain and foolish to think we can just mess with this stuff without truly waiting for the long term consequences to be determined. This Pandora's box had the knot untied far too quickly. How do they undo this if it is even worse than this?

Soy is in so many things where you would not expect it to be, too.

I noticed it's now turning up a lot in this one brand of otherwise tasty snack bar that is gluten free. Why ? Do not the manufacturers realize that soy is a problem for a lot of celiacs and gluten intolerant people ? How about a few flavors without it, like before ?

I cannot say for certain it is the actual adding in of other genes, or the way the genetic modified crops are actually GROWN by dousing them and the ground with herbicide chemicals which do not break down completely as rapidly as they claim, but it has to be some sort of strange coincidence that it is very difficult now to find food with non GMO corn, and non GMO soy products, and the increased incidence of health problems ranging from auto immunity backfiring, to people gaining extra weight.

To me, the approval of animal foodstuffs with GMO components, such as sugar beets (the leftover pulp fiber is used in a LOT of livestock and pet feeds) and alfalfa, when the definition of "organic" says the animals such as dairy cows should be eating non GMO feeds, is really troubling.

It's all going to be ok. The gene manipulators are figuring out how to colorize our poo. The world will be all straightened out in no time...

Colorful Poo Could Give Health Warning

Parents have long divined their child's health by reading the contents of toilets. But future humans who spot brightly colored poo could take it as a warning from genetically-engineered bacteria in their gut that they should go see a doctor.

Such a colorful scenario comes from the scientists and designers of E.Chromi, according to Co.Design. They transformed ordinary E. coli bacteria into biosensors that could change color in the presence of certain chemicals

It seems pretty obvious what will happen when they perfect this colorful poo.

Patient: Well doc, I completed all the standard tests for celiac disease, blood antibodies, endoscpoy with biopsy, and yogurt color detector. What's the verdict?

Doc: Yep, your antibodies were off the charts kid, the villi hit Marsh 4 and it all seems pretty clear except for one thing. According to the yogurt test, Your poo should be bright yellow with orange and green polka dots. Looks like you have IBS after all. Take this handful of pills each month and come back and see me in 10 years if you still have insurance and are still kickin.

Patient: Dang, I hate pills...

Yep. The real world is becoming pretty surreal. Unfortunately your scenario is much more likely to play out than the one where doctors finally get it and give us correct diagnoses. oh... and correct treatment as well. Looks like we are left to look out for ourselves. (feeling pretty cynical, I am!)
