I received my monthly newsletter today from the Institute for Responsible Technology, and I wanted to share it with you. http://www.seedsofdeception.com/utility/showArticle/?objectID=1418 While all of the studies cited used rodents, not people, as test subjects, the findings are incredibly disturbing. The mice and rats experienced everything from stomach, intestinal, and liver abnormalities, to high death rates, reproductive problems, and infant mortality.
The shocking part? You are probably already eating the genetically modified (GM) foods fed to these animals. The FDA approved these foods for human consumption. Unless you buy organic canola, corn, soy, and papayas, your chances of repeatedly avoiding GM versions are negligible (GM foods cannot receive the organic label). Check out this link for a full list of GM crops and foods: http://www.responsibletechnology.org/GMFree/AboutGMFoods/GMFoodsAtAGlance/index.cfm
I encourage you to check out the rest of the website while you’re there. The Institute for Responsible Technology does not seem to thrive on sensationalism and scare tactics. They present their case against GM foods in a reasonable, logical, and non-psychotic manner. I appreciate that, and I hope you will too.
Thanks for reading!
