March Gift for You

GMO CDWe recently reviewed a research package on Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO). The package included the books Seeds of Deception and Genetic Roulette by Jeffrey M. Smith and DVDs entitled Unnatural Selection, Hidden Dangers in Kid's Meals and You're Eating What. While the conclusions by the author are based on preliminary research, we feel there is enough scientific evidence to be concerned. We want you to have the benefits of this research too, so you can make an informed decision for your family (2-legged and 4-legged). We will include the CD on the right, which summarizes the GMO package we reviewed, as our free gift with every order placed between March 15–April 15. Details on ordering more CDs are in the flyer below.

Are Genetically Modified Organisms
 (GMO) Bad?

Remember why L-tryptophan (amino acid) was only available by prescription? Supposedly, it was because of a contaminated batch manufactured (1989) by a Japanese company from which 100 people died and 5,000-10,000 became sick (some permanently disabled). Some of the symptoms include: incredible pain, hair falling out, memory loss, muscle weakness, muscles uncontrollably locked, skin became leathery and painful. But the real reason was not "contamination" in the conventional sense but because one company was using a genetic engineered (GE) manufacturing technique which changed the effects of their L-tryptophan. This was the first widespread human exposure to a genetically modified (GM) product or genetically modified organism (GMO). The only reason why this recall occurred, was because the symptoms were acute, debilitating and had a quick onset. What if a GMO or GE food entered the food supply today and the symptoms were not debilitating or did not have a quick onset but took years to develop? Would you want you, your family and your pet to be eating GMO food today without thorough testing? If you eat fast food, eat in restaurants or buy processed or packaged foods with the following ingredients, you need to read the rest of this article to educate yourself about what is going into your mouth and the mouth of your loved ones (including your pet).

The following ingredients may be made from GM corn, soy, canola and cotton:

corn soy canola cotton
corn flour soy flour canola oil cottonseed oil
cornstarch soy milk hydrolyzed vegetable protein sorbitol
corn oil soy lecithin inositol starch
high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) soy protein inverse syrup stearic acid
baking powder soy isolates isoflavones sugar beets
aspartame tamari maltodextrin tocopherols
caramel color tempeh milk triglyeride
dextrose tofu milk products vegetable fat
fructose glutamate modified food starch vegetable oil
glucose glycerin monosodium glutamate xanthan gum

Genetically modified organisms (GMO) are produced by transferring a gene from one species (for example, bacteria, viruses, animals or plants) into another, to produce a desired result. For instance, a gene from an herbicide resistant bacteria could be inserted into a food crop so that the crop can be sprayed with herbicides (thus killing all the weeds) and still survive. In Nature, the genes from one species are not meant to cross or affect a different species. So, this practice is inherently dangerous because now scientists have circumvented Nature's genetic species barrier.

Jeffrey M. Smith, in his research book Seeds of Deception, documented 65 potential health risks of eating GMO foods. In animal experiments when given a choice cows, pigs, elk, deer, raccoons, geese, squirrels, rats and mice, have shown a preference for non-GMO or complete avoidance of GMO food. What do animals know that we do not? In the first and only raw feeding study, an experimental Flavor-Saver tomato was fed to rats. The rats would not eat the GM Flavor-Saver tomato. When the rats were force fed the GM tomatoes, 7/20 developed stomach lesions, 7/40 died within two weeks and were replaced in the study.

The most knowledgeable genetic scientist on this planet, Arpad Pusztai, conducted a safety study (1998) with GMO potatoes. In an effort to determine what safety protocols were necessary, he studied three groups of potatoes:

  1. Natural potatoes, which was the control
  2. Potatoes spiked with insecticide
  3. Potatoes which were genetically modified (GMO) to include insecticide

Only animals fed this third group (GMO) got sick after 10 days. Not even the potatoes spiked with insecticide made test animals sick. This proved to him the GE process created damaging change not the insecticide. What he saw was potentially pre-cancerous cell growth in the digestive tract, smaller growth of brains, liver and testicles, partial atrophy of the liver and damage to the immune system. Based on these results and the stomach lesions and death in rats from the Flavor-Saver tomato experiments, what implications could this have for people and pets who are developing allergies, cancer, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), Crohn’s disease, celiac disease, colitis, megacolon, leaky gut syndrome or other digestive disorders today? Did you know GMO crops of corn, soy, canola, cotton, Hawaiian papaya, some zucchini, crooked-neck squash, sugar beets and tobacco are being consumed today without having been tested with these vigorous scientific methods.

Here are some more shocking facts about the GE process. The GE process literally blasts genes from one species' cells into another, using a gene gun, thus creating potential mutations. To activate the desired gene, a promoter is included which turns on the gene all the time, 24 hours a day, unlike the way genes normally operate (only turned on as needed). And to identify which cells have successfully received the transferred gene, an antibiotic-resistant marker gene is used as well. After the gene transfer, the plate of cells is doused with an antibiotic and those that survive have the desired gene and the antibiotic resistant gene. The animals that eat the GMO food thus get the antibiotic resistant gene which likely can transfer into the bacteria in their gut. Could this be the reason we are seeing an increase in antibiotic resistant diseases today? This GMO process allows genes to cross the species barrier. Are we not seeing an indication of diseases crossing the species barrier? The FDA's own scientists concluded there was too much risk and not enough testing to allow GMO food to enter the human food chain. So, why are there GM food on your table without adequate testing?

It is because of an FDA policy stating they "... are not aware of any information showing that the foods created from these new methods differ from other foods in any meaningful or uniform way." Because of this policy statement, NO TESTING WAS NECESSARY for any GMO food crops to be allowed into our food supply since 1992. Who was in charge of formulating this policy statement? Michael Taylor, Monsanto’s (biotechnology company) former attorney and later its vice president, was brought into the FDA to oversee this new policy development. With Taylor in charge, the scientists’ warnings were ignored and denied. Kind of like the fox watching the henhouse.

Why is all the above significant to you, your family and your pet today? Because without you knowing it and without your approval, you, your family and your pet are probably eating GE food right now. You are part of a grand GMO experiment without your knowledge. If you are part of the 9/10 people who would choose not to eat GMO food if given the choice, here are some guidelines.

Tips to Avoid GMO Food

  1. Buy organic foods
  2. Look for Non-GMO labels on food products
  3. Avoid at-risk ingredients (partial list in table above)
  4. Use a non-GMO shopping guide available at www.truefoodnow.org and www.seedsofdeception.com

Download a 4-page GMO Food Guide here: GMO Food Guide

While no firm scientific conclusion can be drawn from currently available research, we feel this issue is important enough to our health to personally avoid all GMO ingredients and GE food. Remember, 50 years ago the tobacco industry was saying, "There is absolutely no scientific evidence that second-hand smoke is harmful and there is no conclusive proof that even first-hand smoke is dangerous to one's health." Today, the same companies that are using GE to manufacture GMO foods are the same companies that told us DDT, Agent Orange, PCB and aspartame are perfectly safe. We hope you will listen to our free March CD gift to you, so you can make an informed decision for your family (2-legged and 4 legged).
