GMOs

  1. GMOs made with dangerous new technology

    Alarming new GMO tech is terrifying governments

    FINALLY!

    There’s long-overdue action being taken by the government to slow the reckless surge of genetically modified food and regulate this out-of-control industry.

    Too bad it’s not OUR government!

    European regulators are doing what the cowards at the FDA, USDA, and the rest of the Washington “swamp monsters” have failed to do.

    They’re placing strict limits on how new GMO technology can be used in foods.

    In Washington, the feds have taken the industry-friendly approach. They assume it’s all safe, so we – the consumers – have to prove otherwise.

    Since the industry has the labs, equipment and money, guess who wins? That’s right. IT DOES, not us.

    That leaves U.S. consumers facing unknown risks when we consume foods that have never really been subjected to rigorous long-term human studies.

    In Europe, they’re taking the common-sense approach: Prove it’s safe FIRST!

    See how easy that is?

    A new ruling there finds that food produced by recent rapid advances in genetic modification can’t be assumed to be safe, as the U.S. government does.

    Instead, they have to be subject to restrictions and regulations.

    This is critical. New gene-editing technologies such as Crispr are making it easier than ever for mad scientists to splice and dice your foods.

    Sure, new crops might grow bigger… stay fresher… look brighter… and last longer.

    But at what price?

    Our bodies were designed to eat the foods already here – natural foods – and when you start “tweaking” those crops, you may accidentally create something that could act in unexpected ways inside your body.

    While little human research has been done, limited animal studies have found cause for concern, if not outright alarm. Those studies have detected potential cancer risk… immune system problems… and the type of DNA damage that can lead to chronic disease.

    The newer technologies could lead to even more risks, as one expert told The New York Times that gene editing can “miss their targets” and make hidden alterations that could lead to unexpected consequences.

    It’s not alarmist to slow down and regulate these technologies.

    It’s WISE.

    Unfortunately, this wisdom seems to be limited to Europe for now. Those of us in America are out of luck, at least when it comes to expecting protection from the feds.

    They’re more than happy to toss you to the genetically modified wolves.

    But you can protect yourself

    GMOs aren’t labeled or regulated, but organic foods are -- and by law, they cannot be genetically modified.

    Stick to organics, and you can avoid these potentially risky foods AND the chemical pesticides and herbicides used on them.

  2. GMOs in new cancer scare

    New dangers linked to genetically-modified foods

    It's the bombshell study that proves EVERYTHING you've been told about genetically-modified foods is based on a massive lie.

    Despite the claims of Big Ag, they're NOT the same as God-given natural foods -- and they're NOT safe!

    Naturally, you haven't heard a peep about it from the mainstream media. So, once again, allow me to do their job for them -- because this is the explosive new report everyone needs to see.

    GMOs get little to no regulation because Big Ag claims they're supposedly "substantially equivalent" to non-GMO foods.

    The logic is that if regular corn is safe, then GMO corn is safe -- because they're basically the same.

    The government has been playing right along, using the "substantially equivalent" myth as an excuse to look the other way.

    But the new study finally blows a hole right through that theory, showing major differences between real corn and a common genetically-modified maize used in both human and animal food.

    And these differences could hurt you and your family!

    First, the research team found that the gene alterations leave the corn more prone to oxidation, exposing it to the damage of free radicals.

    And second, they found two compounds hidden inside the genetically-modified corn in much higher levels than what should be there.

    They found between double and even TRIPLE the levels of substances called cadaverine and putrescine.

    These substances are known to cause allergic reactions in some people, which validates the growing number of reports of food sensitivities that appear to be linked to GMOs.

    But more alarmingly, both cadaverine and putrescine are involved in the formation of cancer-causing nitrosamines when found in meat, according to the study in the journal Scientific Reports.

    Can they do the same when they turn up in these high levels in corn? We don't know!

    Because of the "substantially equivalent" loophole, they've never been fully vetted with extensive research -- but the little data we do have has made a link to cancer, and this study adds more smoke to the growing fire.

    And that's not even on the only link between GMOs and cancer.

    One of the biggest problems with genetically-modified corn isn't the crop itself… it's what's ON it.

    The genetic modification allows the crops to withstand the powerful weedkiller glyphosate, a.k.a. Roundup.

    And sure, the corn can handle it.

    But can you?

    Glyphosate is so dangerous that the World Health Organization's cancer agency has declared it to be probably carcinogenic to humans.

    Yet if you're eating genetically-engineered corn, soy, and other crops, you're getting doused with this chemical at every meal.

    There's a growing push to label GMOs, but there is no national standard as of yet. Either look for products that have self-labeled and vow to be 100 percent GMO-free, or eat organic foods, which, by law, cannot be genetically modified.

  3. GMOs are hiding in cleaning products

    GMOs aren’t just in food. They’re also in soaps, detergents and more – and some of them could be hiding around your home right now.

    In a sneaky last-minute move, the feds cleared the way for the approval of a bioengineered fish despite huge potential risks.
  5. GM foods in big-time cancer scare

    Genetically modified corn and the chemicals used on the farms that grow these crops have been linked to massive, deadly tumors in mice.
