What are GMOs doing to our Digestive Health?
Everybody knows that GMOs are bad. Yet, many are not doing much to avoid consuming GMOs. Everytime I see a child eating a 'perfect' shiny GMO apple I cringe. To fully understand the dangers of GMOs we have to understand what GMOs are doing to our bodies. Since GMO's are lurking in the majority of processed foods (Seventy percent of processed foods contain hidden GMO ingredients such as High fructose corn syrup (which can be labeled as fructose), corn starch, and GM soy (soy lecithin), its important to understand what GMOs are doing to our bodies.
BT TOXIN IN GMO CROPS May LEAD to THE DEVELOPMENT OF DIGESTIVE DISORDERS LIKE IBS & CROHN'S
GM crops are pest resistant. Genetically modified crops such as GMO rice, corn, and tobacco are pest-resistant because their seeds are encoded with a bacteria called bacillus thuringiensis, also known as Bt. Bt. can be found in caterpillars before they turn into butterflies. Bt. eats the skin of the caterpillars, which allows their wings to emerge. This happens because Bt. creates pore-forming toxins and cry toxins. Cry toxins are extremely harmful and kill almost any kind of bug. GMO corn and cotton are genetically engineered to produce THEIR OWN PESTICIDES IN EVERY CELL. GMO corn and cotton are essentially mini pesticide factories.
Genetic engineers insert Bt genes into corn and cotton, so the plants themselves do the killing. When bugs bite the plant, the poison EATS THROUGH THEIR STOMACHS and kills them.
The Bt-toxin produced in GM plants is thousands of times more concentrated than natural Bt and cannot be washed off the plant. Bt. toxin in GMO foods causes tremendous harm to the stomachs of bugs who ingest it, which may explain why so many people today suffer from digestive ailments such as IBS & Crohn's.
GMO FOODS CAUSE TUMORS, INTESTINAL DAMAGE, AND PREMATURE DEATH IN ANIMAL STUDIES A study was conducted in Egypt on pest-resistant GMO corn. The two scientists in charge of the study, Ebtsam Okasha and Marwa Ibrahim M.D., divided male albino rats into two groups. Group A's diet consisted of 30% GMO corn. Group B's diet consisted of 30% Non-GMO corn. After only ninety days, the rats in group A who ate the GM corn suffered from severe intestinal, liver, heart, kidney and hormonal damage. Group B remained healthy.
Another study was performed on a group of rats who were fed GMO corn with traces of Roundup pesticide. The rats developed HUGE cancer tumors, and severe liver and kidney damage. Seventy percent of the female rats died prematurely, while 50% of the male rats died prematurely. WHY TO AVOID FARM RAISED FISH
Farm Raised Fish are of special concern because they are purposely infected with a live virus to cause gen
