The Little Known Link Between Cancer and GMO Foods
It’s true. The few studies that have been done on the GM foods that are currently found in your supermarket were found to have much lower nutritional value than their conventional cousins. This means that eating GM foods on a long term, daily basis could give you a deficiency of some nutrients, even when you think you are eating healthy produce, and nutritional deficiencies have long since been known to be a contributing factor in the growth of cancer.
GM soybeans have a gene that is placed inside this food to make it herbicide tolerate. In the only human involved study known, this gene transferred out of the soybeans and into the intestinal tract of the human subjects. For these subjects, this means that even when the study was done, their guts will continue to make this herbicide tolerant protein in the bacteria of their gut. You can only imagine what happens when, for example, GM corn, which has a gene inserted that produces pesticides is eaten. Your gut bacteria are constantly reproducing this pesticide, even if you only ate conventional produce forever afterwards. This pesticide, embedded within the genes of the corn itself, kills every insect that bites it. How can anyone not imagine that this corn, constantly creating this pesticide inside your body, is not going to give you cancer or other degenerative diseases over time?
The first ever published study on the long term effects of the consummation of GM foods, researchers from the University of Caen discovered that rats developed huge tumors and died prematurely, after eating GM corn, along with trace levels of a chemical fertilizer (RoundUp), which is heavily used with GM crops.
The rats in this study suffered severe organ damage that included liver damage, kidney damage, and huge mammary tumors. This study used NK603, a type of GMO corn from Monsanto that is grown all across America and fed to both animals and humans. Yes, this is the same corn you are eating in corn chips, tortillas, and the ones your kids are eating in their morning cereal.
