I don’t believe there is any greater insidious threat to our health than genetically modified foods (GE or GMO). Think about what it means. You are taking a gene that is in one species (say a lectin) and splicing it into species that may not even be in the same family. What will the body do with it? All one has to do is read about the immune systems response to oral antigens to know we are in for a potential catastrophic disaster.
This is not selective breeding. I hear pro GMO folks say well ‘we are just speeding up evolution.’ That statement is a fallacy as evolution is a process of slow change. Our immune systems and digestive systems are not changing and adapting along with the GMO foods
The danger of GMO foods trumps bisphenol-A (BPA) worries. It trumps chemical toxins accumulating in the fat of livestock. It is far more disastrous than aeriel spraying pesticides on crops. All of the aforementioned issues can somehow be contained, so they are not the threat that GMOs pose. Once GMO food gets loose in the environment it can cross pollinate into organic food (which it has already done). And once GMOs cross pollinate then food as our bodies know it can become an immunological nightmare. Physicians that deal with allergies, hypersensitivities and environmental illnesses are very concerned about GMOs. Click here for a study demonstrating GMOs inducing food hypersensitivities in mice (i.e. inflammatory mediator release and a loss of oral tolerance to common foods).
