GMOs Causing More Harm than Good
A statement was issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in the early 1990’s that advised consumers that there had been no danger associated with consuming foods containing Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) therefore no “safety” studies were necessary. The FDA furthermore made the ruling that the labeling of GMO foods was not mandatory in the year 2000. In 1992 a lawsuit against the BIOTECH community released 44,000 secret internal memos into the public domain showing that not only where GMOs dangerous, they were less nutritious than non-GMO food, they had been linked to

The BT toxin. In February of 2012 a study revealed that the protein in the plants containing the BT toxin created to kill insects actually will break open pores in human cells and cause the same type of destruction it does in the insects inside of our guts. Garry Gordon, MD explains that the BT is causing an increased propensity for our intestines to become permeable, also known as leaky (leaky gut syndrome, IBS). When the toxin explodes in our intestines it allows unprocessed foods to be released into our bloodstream reeking havoc on our bodies causing premature aging, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, autism, cancer, asthma and so on. A study in Canada, the only human feeding study conducted, revealed that the BT toxin transferred from corn chips not only transferred into our gut bacteria, it continued to function turning our intestinal flora into a living pesticide factory. 93% of the pregnant women tested had the BT toxin in their blood and 80% of the toxin had been transferred to their unborn fetuses.
Roundup. Roundup is able to kill weeds by making the nutrients unavailable to the plant, weakening the plant, and therefore promoting diseases in the soil to kill the plant. Plants that have been treated with Roundup or genetically altered have been shown to have a substantial decrease in the plants nutritional values. The nutrient deficient plants become weak and sick, the animals that eat the plants
