I saw this article and I thought I would share it. I haven’t really touched on GMO foods all that much. The comments on this article seem to question the authors facts somewhat, but then who knows who to believe these days. Some of the comments seem to be made by those who are paid to comment on such articles (one poster claims). Also, this is one of those sites that is kind of “out there” no doubt about it. It truly is a battle of who will control what are “facts” these days. I don’t know how credible the author or the AAEM are. I am only passing this on, not saying it’s fact or my opinion in fact I’m skeptical of some of the information, however, it’s worth reading. This type of article always brings out a lot of harsh comments but I hope we can stick to what this might mean for us rather than just lashing out, remember, we have no idea really how much of this article is really verifiable. Below is but a snippet of the article.
American Academy of Environmental Medicine Calls for Immediate Moratorium on All Genetically Modified Foods
GM corn and cotton are engineered to produce their own built-in pesticide in every cell. When bugs bite the plant, the poison splits open their stomach and kills them. Biotech companies claim that the pesticide, called Bt-produced from soil bacteria Bacillus thuringiensis-has a history of safe use, since organic farmers and others use Bt bacteria spray for natural insect control. Genetic engineers insert Bt genes into corn and cotton, so the plants do the killing.
Worst finding of all-GMOs remain inside of us
The only published human feeding study revealed what may be the most dangerous problem from GM foods. The gene inserted into GM soy transfers into the DNA of bacteria living inside our intestines and continues to function. This means that long after we stop eating GMOs, we may still have potentially harmful GM proteins produced continuously inside of us. Put more plainly, eating a corn chip produced from Bt corn might transform our intestinal bacteria into living pesticide factories, possibly for the rest of our lives.
When evidence of gene transfer is reported at medical conferences around the US, doctors often respond by citing the huge increase of gastrointestinal problems among their patients over the last decade. GM foods might be colonizing the gut flora of North Americans.
This quote seemed to really strike a chord in me, a large part of our battle is in the Gut, in fact, probably most of it is.
