Have you seen the scientific evidence that genetically modified foods are 100% safe, with no long-term health related side effects? Neither have we. Emerging research is discovering startling evidence that the government and seed industries “solution to world hunger” is creating a potentially irreversible pattern of destruction in agriculture, wild life and human health. What is a GMO? Genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) are created by combining genes from one species into the DNA of a food crop or animal to produce a new trait. Because living organisms have natural barriers to protect themselves against the introduction of DNA from a different species, genetic engineers must force the DNA from one organism into another. Their methods include: Using viruses or bacteria to “infect” animal or plant cells with the new DNA. Coating DNA onto tiny metal pellets and firing it with a special gun into the cells. Injecting the new DNA into fertilized eggs with a very fine needle. Using electric shocks to create holes in the membrane covering sperm and forcing the new DNA into the sperm through these holes. Why is this done, you might ask? By inserting certain bacterial genes into crop seeds it allows farmers to spray otherwise deadly doses of weed-killer directly on the crop without killing it. Other seeds are inserted with soil bacterium Bacillus Thuringiensis (Bt) to produce an insect-killing pesticide within every cell of the plant. When insects eat the plant, they get a mouthful of toxins which cause their stomachs to erupt, killing the bugs. These genetically modified (GM) plants are so toxic they are registered as pesticides with the Environmental Protection Agency, and for good reason. Mass deaths have been seen in livestock allowed to graze on these GM Bt plants in both the US and abroad. If bugs and livestock die after eating GM Bt plants, what effects will be seen on humans? Wow, that is a heavy thought huh? Biotech companies like Monsanto and DuPont claim the Bt-toxin has a history of safe use, citing even organic farmers use Bt bacteria spray for natural insect control. However they fail to point out that the Bt-toxin produced in GM plants: Is thousands times more concentrated than the natural Bt spray used by organic farmers. Is designed to be more toxic. Has properties of an allergen. Unlike the spray, cannot be washed off the plant. What are the risks of eating GMO foods? The American Academy of Environmental Medicine reported serious health risks associated with GM foods in animal studies including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulation, and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system. Mice fed GM soy had fewer, and smaller, babies. More than half...
