Genetically modified organisms, commonly referred to as GMO’s, are foods that have been genetically modified by and grown with chemicals.
In a study done by Dr. Pusztai at the Rowett Institute in Scotland, rats were fed genetically modified (GMO) potatoes. In just the first 10 days of the project, ALL rats showed damaged immune systems, pre-cancerous cell growths, along with smaller brains and livers. American consumers typically believe anything the FDA approves is safe to consume, that is completely false.
The FDA does not have a single testing procedure in place for GMO foods, NONE. The only human study ever published showed that those foreign genes that are present in genetically modifed food transfer to the DNA in the bacteria in our digestive systems. We, the American consumer, are the guinea pig (or rat) in this case. Unfortunately, almost all grains, including soybeans, wheat, and corn, have been grown via GMO’s.
GMO’s aren’t listed and/or required to be listed on food labels. So please read carefully and select food sources that are branded NON-GMO.
