Proverbs 17:22 A joyful heart is good medicine, But a broken spirit dries up the bones.

GMO Linked to Tumors, Allergies

A recent study published in the journal of Food and Chemical Toxicology is proving genetically modified organisms (GMO) may cause kidney damage, liver failure and early death.

Genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) are just what the name implies. Organisms, in this case foods, that have been altered genetically.

Genetically modified foods alter genetic codes of the DNA in an organism by wiring in genes from other forms of life including other plant forms, insecticides, pesticides, bacteria and viruses.  Most GMO foods today have been modified to tolerate or produce pesticides (like canola oil).

Health Concerns with GMO Foods

If you haven’t been convinced of the damaging effects of GMO’s yet then this next study may cause you to think twice.

Eating genetically modified corn (GMO corn) and consuming trace levels of Monsanto’s Roundup chemical fertilizer (commonly used in GMO) caused rats to develop horrifying tumors, widespread organ damage, and premature death.

The study has been deemed “the most thorough research ever published into the health effects of GMO crops and the herbicide Roundup on rats.”

In a 2011 review published in Environmental Sciences Europe, 19 studies of mammals, fed GMO soybeans and corn, were evaluated.  The 90-day long trials indicate liver and kidney problems as a result of GMO foods.  Kidney’s were disrupted by 43.5% and liver by 30.8%

These are the photos taken from the study and you can see the deadly effects GMO’s had on these rats.

According to reports, individuals who consumed GMO’s also experienced the following side effects:

  • Increase in allergies
  • Increase in antibiotic resistance
  • Problems with endocrine system
  • Disorders of the reproductive system
  • Increase in aging symptoms
  • Cancerous Tumor growth

A 10-year study in Norway has found GMO’s may cause obesity, digestive problems, and damage to major organs including liver, kidneys, pancreas and genitals.

Monsanto is the largest producer today of genetically modified foods like corn, soy, and canola.  And now there are even companies working to produce genetically modified salmon and cattle.

How to Avoid GMO Foods

The following are my top recommendations for keeping GMO foods out of your body:

  • Avoid all foods with corn, canola, and soy, sugar beets, cotton.
  • Look for and buy foods that are labeled GMO free.
  • Shop for organic foods. (By law they must contain less than 5% GM Products.)
  • Shop at your local farmers market or plant your own garden.
  • Read and stay informed on natural health websites

If you are buying any of the above foods and the label doesn’t say “Organic” or “Non-GMO” you can be fairly certain the food is GMO.

When you see the words on a nutrition label like corn syrup, soybean oil or even sugar, a majority of the time that ingredient has been genetically modified.
