Is a GMO free diet necessary? (Diet Series 3)

Dr. John Jimenez, October 9, 2012

What’s all the fuss about GMO products?

GMOs, or “genetically modified organisms,”  take gene from one specie and blast them into a DNA of plant cells and clone those cells into crops. Two types: herbicide tolerant(do not die when sprayed with herbicide), pesticide producing crops(breaks open stomach of insects and kills them (in corn BT toxin)). This experimental technology merges DNA from different species, creating unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacterial and viral genes that cannot occur in nature or in traditional crossbreeding.

9 GMO crops related to food:

soy (80% of all food in supermarket)- 90% of processes foods
corn (80% of all food in supermarket)- 90% of processes foods
cotton (for oil)
sugar (from sugar beads) (90 of all food in supermarket)
hawaiian papaya
zucchini squash
crookneck squash

Problems with eating GMOs foods: 

can create toxins
reproductive problems
immune system problems
accelerating aging
organ damage
gastrointestinal problems
dysfunctional regulation of cholesterol and insulin
can create new diseases and nutritional problems
can create allergies
American Academy of Environmental Medicine, Policy Paper 2011

Studies throughout the world Peer Reviews in Rodents: fed with GM soy beans
changes in uterus, and ovaries
changes in testicles
changed way DNA function in embryo offspring
smaller babies
fewer babies
5 fold increase in infant mortality
By the third generation of hamsters some had hair growing in their mouth.

NON - GMO diet is the way to go!
