GMO Toxin A Threat To Human Health

May 17, 2011

Today I’m bringing you an article via Organic Consumers Association, the group behind the vitally important Millions Against Monsanto.

This article brings to light several things that we should find alarming. One), that we’ve been lied to about the effects that GMO organisms have on us, and two) that people still don’t care enough to do anything about it.

Last time I posted something here about food freedom news, it didn’t get many views. Why exactly have we decided that it’s acceptable for people we don’t know, who have proven they’re willing to lie through their teeth (as if cold-blooded snakes even had those sorts of teeth) to line their own wallets, to have control and influence over what we consume to stay alive?

I know several of my friends think that I’m an alarmist, and that’s fine. The bottom line is that I’m right about this, these GMO-pushing companies aren’t ethical, and just because an article doesn’t make the corporate-owned main stream media (keywords: corporate-owned) doesn’t mean it isn’t important news that affects us as consumers.

Here’s a snippet:

Till now, scientists and multinational corporations promoting GM crops have maintained that Bt toxin poses no danger to human health as the protein breaks down in the human gut. But the presence of this toxin in human blood shows that this does not happen.

Scientists from the University of Sherbrooke, Canada, have detected the insecticidal protein, Cry1Ab, circulating in the blood of pregnant as well as non-pregnant women.

Fair use copyright guidelines prevent me from posting the rest of the article, but it goes on to say that this insecticide has even been found in fetal blood. That’s right! Pesticide in the blood of your unborn babies. Lovely.

It really upsets me that most people don’t seem to care about this. It isn’t natural. It isn’t supposed to be this way. Food and water are the building blocks of life. Letting an unethical corporation put prices and limits on that is not okay by any stretch of the imagination.

    One of the main reasons we raise our own beef. I don’t raise a garden but I do buy local produce instead of produce imported from other countries.

      If I lived closer to you, I’d love to have some sort of trade-off or something. The GMO thing is really worrisome to me.

      There’s a phenomenal CSA near-ish you, it’s called Lancaster Hydro Farm. Here’s their website if you’re interested

      We were going to (and still would) use them if they delivered out here but I don’t think they do. I have friends who used their services for years before they moved and they were very pleased with it. The owners are super nice and really helpful.
