Shocker! Studies prove GMO’s are bad for you
- Feb 1st 2012
Since I started this blog 4 years ago I’ve been saying to avoid GMO foods. I have had discussions with a farmer who’s family actually grows Monsanto GMO corn and soy in South America who is totally convinced that GMO food will save the world and keep us from starving. We may not starve, I believe we would be poisoned first.
I’ve got an article today from Organic authority discussing 19 studies that suggest there’s a link between GMO foods and serious organ damage. The studies were performed in Europe on rats, so the data is animal-based.
Now that I have worked for as long as I have with animals, I truly believe that they are not that different from us, physiologically speaking. Sure there are things that are safe for us to eat and toxic for animals as there are foods that are safe for them but bad for us. We’ve been doing medical research on animals for a long time and there’s a reason for that. Just out of curiosity, how many studies have to conclude GMO food is dangerous for something to be done about it?
All I know is if it’s GMO you can bet that I’ll do my best to avoid it as much as possible. When in doubt? Go organic, it can’t be GMO too.
