I had the opportunity to watch the movie Genetic Roulette. If you haven’t seen it, I would highly recommend it.
As it states in Genetic Roulette,
GMO’s are “the most dangerous thing facing human beings in our generation.”
Many aren’t aware that our food is being genetically modified. Genetically Modified Organisms take genes from one species and force it into the DNA of other species. Corn and soy are the largest GMO crops. The majority of our processed food has corn and/or soy in it. Read food labels. You will find different corn syrups and soy oils. Unless it has an organic label on the item, or has the Non-GMO Project Verified label on it, it more than likely has been genetically modified.
Why Has Disease Increased?
GMO’s create different gene mutations. Since the new gene sequence created is foreign to our body, our immune system attacks it. This can lead to inflammation in our gut – which ultimately leads to disease.
GMO’s also have toxic proteins because they contain built-in pesticides. These toxins can lead to leaky guts. Ultimately leading to disease.
As they say in the movie, plants become weak and sick from all of the herbicides and pesticides that are poured on them. Animals eat the sick plants/grains and become sick. Humans eat the sick animals. You guessed it – humans become sick!
Like the people in the movie, I agree that GMOs are some of the most dangerous things facing our generation. It’s important to get the word out about GMOs. I’m thankful for organizations that are trying to educate consumers. We not only need food labeled, but more importantly, we need GMOs banned.
I strongly recommend staying away from gmo foods, many of which are processed, and eating as many whole foods as possible. When purchasing food, remember to look for the organic label, or the non-GMO Project Verified label and stay away from GMOs!
