Something else not mentioned yet here...
Monsanto and these huge corporations are what pay for a lot of the prestigious universities to do their research. They are also responsible for
introducing new projects and securing patents through the same channels.
Go out and try to find a peer-reviewed journal or study of ANY kind that links GMO foods to human health. It's impossible. WHY? Because any scientist
that is serious about studying this would need a LOT of money... and where are you going to find that kind of money and to what benefit? (benefit =
This is why you won't find "hard" data from "experts". However, there is enough research by the very same companies and patented papers and
publications at the FDA that have a ton of information on how horrible the effects of these foods are. Most studies are done on rats, which 9 times
out of 10, mirror exactly what happens to humans at higher doses.
The above link talks about how certain types of GMO foods showed altered intestinal reactions, immune deficiency and other problems in rats when
tested. The person who released the data was slammed because of it, but read for yourself and decide.
IMO, I think a decent size of the population lacks the complex enzymes and genes needed to break down these new GMO foods and that is why so many
problems are on the rise today. Since almost all corn is modified, and all high fructose corn syrup is made from that corn, essentially everything you
buy that is packaged is made from GM food. IF you lack the genes or enzymes to properly break down this food, it is considered a poison by your body
and your body will react as such. To believe otherwise is foolish. This is why, I believe, diseases have increased exponentially, especially diabetes
which is directly linked to how sugar (ie - fructose - ie - high fructose corn syrup) is processed. Some of these crops disintegrate into the soil and
mix in with the soil and water supply. Monsanto also buys land near small farms so that they can "allow" their crops to blow into neighboring farms,
and then SUES them because the small farmer "stole" their patented genetically modified food. It's insanity, when will it stop??
It shouldn't need to be spelled out for people. This stuff is bad. There is no way scientists can possibly understand the implications of changing the
natural evolution of food will impact people.
Here is some more info for those brave enough to look:
