Corporations that support GMO’s are spending over $20 million to stop the state of Oregon from labeling GMO products – and for good reason. Recent studies have demonstrated that GMO’s may be linked to over 22 diseases.
Considering GMO’s are banned in most countries, it leaves many people scratching their heads as to why the U.S., government remains silent regarding GMO’s. Is it because the white house administration’s food Czar is a former executive from Monsanto (the leading GMO producer). Or maybe because the USDA, FDA, and US congress is heavily populated with former Monsanto employees.
Since 1990, research findings exist that demonstrate the dangerous effects of humans consuming GMO products. A recent study published in The Journal Of Organic Systems, specifically links Glyphosate, to many human and animal diseases. Monsanto grows crops to resist Glyphosate – which is an herbicide sold by, guess who – Monsanto.
The problem Glyphosate poses is it prevents human detoxification of many (harmful) chemicals dispersed on GMO/Monsanto crops. Exposure to these chemicals has demonstrated increased risk to serious diseases which include; liver cancer, kidney cancer, autism, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, bladder cancer, thyroid cancer, infertility, diabetes and more.
Some common GMO foods found in grocery stores include; corn, soybeans, sugar and milk. Even though GMO’s are prevalent, there are some things that can be done to promote healthy food consumption: 1) Buy organic products. 2) Purchase products with non-GMO labels, 3) Avoid crops that manufacture/sell GMO foods, 4) take political action by requiring state and federal institutions to label GMO products.
