If GMO foods cause an imbalance in gut flora and this leads to neurological problems, then it is likely GMO foods cause autism, too. One of the earliest indications that GMOs might cause problems in the small intestine was a 1999 study published in the Lancet entitled: “ Effect of diets containing genetically modified potatoes expressing ...
Many consumers concerned about GMO foods believe that conventional potatoes will not sprout because they are genetically modified. But this is not the case. Potatoes are treated with fungicides while they grow, then they are sprayed with herbicides to kill off the fibrous vines for easier harvesting.
Even in the rats studied with GMO foods, more than 1/3rd had necrotic lesions of their gut lining causing bleeding… thus causing a huge health risk to elderly people and the public in general. 1/6th of the animals used in studies with GMO tomatoes died… and these deaths were never studied at all. Mice fed GMO potatoes had the cells of their ...
ARTICLE: Natural GMOs: The Sweet Potato The following is an article posted by Layla Katiraee to the website Biology Fortified on how the sweet potato is a naturally genetically modified organism. Several months ago, a paper was published about sweet potatoes being “natural GMOs”.
Former Biotech Scientist Speaks Out. Some of these proteins are obviously allergenic or toxic, like Cry proteins found in GMO corn. Otherwise known as Bt toxins ( Bacillus thuringiensis ), Cry proteins are one of biotech’s answers for ‘safe’ food.
Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) have been linked to thousands of toxic or allergic-type reactions, thousands of sick, sterile, and dead livestock, and damage to virtually every organ and system studied in lab animals.1 Nearly every independent animal feeding safety study shows adverse or unexplained effects.
In Kenya, the president has lifted a ban to allow genetically modified foods to be grown in the nation “to increase food security,” and citizens aren’t happy. Scientists, nutrition experts, and citizens from Kenya joined in to protest. They claim that the president’s decision goes against their constitutional right for safe food.
Since the 1990s, when the first GMOs were introduced into the human food supply chain, the advantages and disadvantages of this technology and its outcomes have been debated. The US has somewhat embraced GMOs, while the rest of the world has treated them with great hesitation. Here are the key advantages and disadvantages of GMOs to think about.
Fighting Blindness and Malnutrition. Meanwhile, the debate over whether GMOs are good or bad has been stuck in neutral for years. Pamela Ronald, a UC Davis scientist who has been working to develop a disease-resistant, drought-tolerant rice, laid out what’s at stake in a National Geographic article last year: “All this arguing about what’s...
Why there are no long term GMO studies on humans Layla Katiraee | January 13, 2016 A very common question or criticism of GMOs is that they are not properly tested, particularly on humans.
