Which is the Most Deadly: GMOs, Cigarettes, or Diet Soda?
Well, here is a debate for the ages: Which will give you cancer more quickly: eating GMO foods, smoking cigarettes, or drinking diet sodas?
Some people would be quick to point out that the tobacco in cigarettes is known to cause cancer, and the 7,000 or so chemical additives are sure to kill you pretty darn quick.
Another group of people would tell you that it’s really the artificial sweeteners in diet sodas. Diet sodas are like the Trojan horses of manufacturers, as they taste so innocently sweet no one would think they cause cancer until they do.
Then again, some people will tell you that eating GMOs, with their inbred pesticides that kill everything that consumes them, including rats and insects, must be a killer in the end. How can anyone consume pesticides and NOT think that they will get cancer?
Imagine then the folks who are smoking their cigs all day, gulping down diet soda, and eating GMO foods for dinner? Their life clock is on a short timer for certain!
Let’s address these one at a time, starting with diet sodas. Almost all diet sodas today use aspartame, which is sold under brand names such as Equal or Nutrasweet. Aspartame is made up of not one, but three chemicals: methanol, aspartic acid, and phenylalanine. Now it’s true, cancer cells love an acidic environment where the cells are not getting sufficient oxygen or nutrients. Aspartame does all this. Numerous studies have shown that aspartame causes birth defects, brain damage, mood disorders, and worst of all, cancer. It can lead to serious changes in your serotonin levels, which leads to depression, behavioral problems and other emotional problems. Speaking of brain damage, methanol, one of the main ingredients in aspartame, turns into formaldehyde and collects in certain parts of the brain, causing degenerative diseases such as ALS, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s. Yes, we said formaldehyde, something we use to embalm deceased persons, and preserve organs and species for studies! Does that sound like something you want to put in your body? And doesn’t this sound like a chemical that can cause cancer? Whether you believe it or not, studies show that drinking 3 diet sodas per day is actually more dangerous than smoking one pack of cigarettes per day. Although it’s true that diet sodas have far fewer chemicals than cigarettes, aspartame is literally choking your cells, mutating your DNA, and causing cancerous tumors all the same.

Now, when speaking of GMO foods, as you might have already imagined, they are actually much worse than what we have been lead to believe. No long term studies have even been done regarding the safety of GMO foods. Even the World Health Organization only asks for 90 days of testing to claim that GMOs are safe. No one ever died after smoking for 90 days, now did they? Although lifetime studies have yet to be completed on humans, many scientists have done long term studies on animals. Mice that were fed a 33 percent GMO diet all died at an early age, an equivalent to 40 or 50 years in human terms. In fact, these lab mice all developed aggressive types of cancer, kidney failure, as well as liver failure. The problem with determining the “ease” at which humans could get cancer from GMO foods is a difficult task since GMO foods are not labeled. Should someone get cancer, GMO manufactures can always claim it was from something else, since no one would be able to prove that they were consuming GMO foods! Since the introduction of GMOs, chronic diseases and many cancers have skyrocketed. Does anyone really think this is a coincidence?
Everyone in this day and age knows that smoking cigarettes will eventually lead to some type of cancer or emphysema. However, did you know that about 90 percent of tobacco sold today is GMO tobacco? That’s a fact. Talk about a double whammy! Cigarettes and GMO in one package!
Which would cause cancer first? Which of these three is the worst? Which of these will kill you first? Do we really need to know? Being killed by any one of these, whether it’s faster or slower, they are still going to kill you. So be smart! Don’t drink cancer, don’t smoke cancer, and don’t eat cancer! If you smoke, quit! If you aren’t sure whether or not you are eating GMOs, make a vow to only eat foods labeled organic. If you drink diet anything, stop today! Only you can take steps towards a healthier you and avoid cancer causing substances.
