Today I was reading an article about genetically modified soybeans and just how that is done and was astonished to find out that food that has been tampered with can be dangerous to your health. In fact, consuming genetically modified soybeans can cause allergic reactions:
Beginning in 1996, bacteria, virus and other genes have been artificially inserted to the DNA of soy, corn, cottonseed and canola plants.
Apparently, bad viruses and bacteria are being combined with the DNA of these plants. In your stomach, these bad viruses and bacteria can have a bad reaction against the good bacteria that your body naturally has. Can you spell heartburn? Oh, yes!
Then there is the use of herbicide spray being used with the soybean crop. Below are some other symptoms that can manifest:
Symptoms of glyphosate [another word for an herbicide] exposure include nausea, headaches, lethargy, skin rashes, and burning or itchy skin.
So you can have heartburn and various other manifestations happening to your body just from eating genetically modified soybeans. What trouble is caused! Trouble you need to be aware of. This concerns your health and your children’s health. You could work hard all your life, only to give it up to a hospital and insurance company in the end.
Critics of GM foods often say that the U.S. population is being used as guinea pigs in an experiment. But experiments have the benefit of controls and measurement. In this case, there is neither.
Right. It is my opinion that we U.S. citizens are part of an overall grand experiment where we are being forced to consume all these toxins, poisons, genetically modified food — and the results, I’d say, are IN. I don’t have to be a PhD to notice after eating that piece of soy lecithin chocolate candy, my stomach didn’t feel very good.
I remember when I was in my forties and I used to get heartburn from eating fast food hamburgers. I couldn’t figure it out. Finally, I called these fast food hamburgers "chemical burgers" and I stopped buying fast food meals completely. I rarely got heartburn afterwards. At that time, I’d drink milk and it didn’t alleviate the heartburn. The milk was grocery store bought. I didn’t know any better.
Another is to avoid products containing any ingredients from the seven food crops that have been genetically engineered: soy, corn, cottonseed, canola, Hawaiian papaya and a little bit of zucchini and crook neck squash. This means avoiding soy lecithin in chocolate, corn syrup in candies, and cottonseed or canola oil in snack foods.
So the moral of the story is don’t buy genetically modified anything because eating them causes bad reactions. Like ALLERGIES! Heartburn! Lethargy! Headaches! Skin rashes! Burning or itchy skin! I think it’s time to re-evaluate that potato chip cooked in genetically modified canola seed oil that you are putting in your mouth.
Crunch, crunch, swallow. Ask yourself if it’s worth suffering through all those manifestations that can crop up.
