Health threat of genetically modified food. Jeffrey Smith and the Seeds of Deception by Jeffrey Dach MD. Jeffrey Smit h (Left image) was a keynote speaker at the Denver Boulderfest Meeting, July 2008, and he spoke about the dangers of Genetically Modified Food as detailed in his book, Seeds of Deception: Exposing the Lies.
Arpad Pusztai was one of the first scientists to raise concerns about the safety of genetically modified foods. In the late 1990s, Pusztai, a respected molecular biologist, conducted research on GM potatoes for the Rowett Institute in Scotland.
Many staunch food advocates are aggressively pushing for everything GMO ... GMOs Can Be Seen Naturally in Sweet Potatoes, Study Suggests ... according to a new study. Scientists claim to have ...
The study made headlines around the world. According to Science's Martin Enserink, the Rowett Institute was flooded with calls from reporters even before the show aired. He quotes Rowett director Philip James saying that the Institute was faced with "a megacrisis we didn't remotely anticipate."
Avoid processed foods with potato ingredients like frozen dinners with potatoes, powdered potatoes, canned soups with potatoes, and potato chips, unless the foods are labeled non-GMO. Of course, we also recommend avoiding processed foods, but if you must, buy organic or at least non-GMO.
FDA Approves Three New Types of GMO Potatoes — Here’s What You Must Know to Avoid Them by Nick Meyer | April 5, 2017 There are many varieties of potatoes on store shelves, and up to four different kinds may be GMO by the time fall 2017 hits.
Genetically engineered foods are created by inserting genes from other species into their DNA. Engineered foods in the U.S. include soy, corn, cottonseed oil, canola oil, and dairy from cows treated with a genetically engineered hormone, among others.
Concern over the safety of consuming food with genetically modified organisms (GMO) has increased in Taiwan, as it has in much of the world. Taiwan is a major consumer of soy, annually importing an average of 8 million bushels of soybeans, 95% from the United States, the vast majority of which are genetically modified (GM).
Many people don't even know what a "GMO food" is, much less whether or not such food is safe to eat. GMO stand for "Genetically Modified Organism," and the truth is that you are almost certainly already eating GMO foods without knowing it because there are no label requirements for manufacturers and growers to list GMO's in food.
Genetically modified potatoes can be engineered to have a gene from a cold water fish (that is, a gene from the fish is inserted into the potato's genome) so that the potatoes become resistant to cold temperatures and harsh weather conditions.
