6 Negative Side Affects To Eating Genetically Modified Foods

Genetically modified organisms also known as (GMO’s) can be found in as many as 60-70% of the foods in the US.

As we have written about in the past dangers of GMO’s, a genetically modified organism according to The Non-GMO Project are organisms that have been created through the gene-splicing techniques of biotechnology (also called genetic engineering, or GE).

This relatively new science allows DNA from one species to be injected into another species in a lab, creating combination’s of plant, animal, bacteria, and viral genes that do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding methods. The use of genetically modified organisms in foods was recently banned in Europe, but the US isn’t to that point yet due to the highly political nature of what is keeping GMO’s on the market and in our food.

Here are six of the dangers that have been discovered by consuming genetically modified foods…

1. Food Allergy Symptoms Increase Dramatically

According to scientific research, it has been shown that those who eat genetically modified foods tend to see an increase in their allergic reactions to the types of foods they are already allergic too. By eating these genitically modified foods people also form allergies to foods which they were never allergic to before.

2. Bodily Toxicity Increases

body toxicity

As individuals ingest more and more genetically modified foods and organisms into their body it has been shown that the bodies toxicity increases which leads to a ton of other potentially serious health problems. As stated by NaturalNews.com it has been shown that there is a definite link between Obesity, Cancer and Toxicity.

3. Negative Reproductive Effects

In lab tests done on animals there were cases where once the animals ingested genetically modified food they became completely sterile in a matter of weeks. What was interesting in fact was that in some cases these animals were force fed the food because they didn’t want to eat it themselves naturally.

4. Negative Effects To Digestive System

They are finding that GMO’s are a breeding ground for bacteria and virus’s and since the digestive system is where the body is exposed when ingesting these harmful foods, reversing the damaging effects of these foods is nearly impossible. In other cases on mice and rats, there is documented proof that the digestive system grows bigger for some strange reason.

5. Unknown Genetic Effects On Humans

The jury is still out on all of the known causes about how Genetically Modified Organisms will negatively affect the greater human race, so it would be best to avoid them at all costs knowing the long term health risks of ingesting these foods on a regular basis.

6. Death

Death

In some cases death has also been a challenge in working with GMO foods where rats and mice die in a matter of weeks by eating genetically modified food.

As everything adds up over time, and the more these genetically modified foods are pushed on us as Americans, knowing the dangers going in and actively speaking out against it may save more lives now and in the future.

  2. Thank you so much from informing the public on what in my opinion is the biggest threat to our current and future food supply. There is now proof that GMO corn products cause organ damage. We must stop GMO’s!!!
    Watch “King Corn ” for a truly unbiased view of the GMO corn issue. and it will disturb you>>

  3. Very informative post. I’ve found your site via Bing and I’m really happy about the information you provide in your posts. Btw your blogs layout is really messed up on the Kmelon browser. Would be great if you could fix that. Anyhow keep up the great work!

  4. How scary Amy! Those people would freak me out too. At least the pictures turned out great. Gage is adorable!!

    I am currently studying the field of biological policy making at The Ohio State University, and this is mostly propaganda I’m sorry to say. I am not saying that all GMO consumption is healthy or beneficial, but I am saying that the crops available for consumption to the public are NOT harmful. The crops tested in controlled experiments are however extremely volatile and potentially dangerous. That is why they are being tested. Through the use of safely tested crops, ie most of the corn in production, pesticides have become a thing of the past and the benefits for the environment are immense. The plants are resistant to pests on a genetic level thereby making harmful protective chemicals unnecessary.

    I belong toKenya Small Scale Farmers Forum (KESSFF) and we are shocked that our Govt under some pressure hurriedily authorised GMOs into Kenya despite of alot of protests from Kenyans we guess its pressure from Monsanto or US because last year wikileaks revealed that the passing of a flawed Biosaety bill had pressure from the then US Ambassador. Here of concern is how will poor resource Kenya mitigate any negative effects due to GMOs. Pls the world need to help Kenya we are beinmg used as guinea peas.

    Messing with nature is just a bad idea in general. There’s no need for pesticides in sustainable farming, therefore, no need for GMO. It’s about profit. If everyone just grew a garden in their yard, and had a compost pile, had a few fruit trees, and gave the excess away to the poverty stricken, even invited people in to pick the excess themselves… this would be a much better country, hunger-wise. They are trying to use science to change the world, when the science already exists in nature. No one is going to know the long term effects… history proves that you just never know, it’s a gamble. I think it’s sick that in another documentary I saw GMO was being pushed on India, whose people use sustainable farming and also give the seeds they produce to less fortunate farmers. Their system wasn’t even broken, it was working fine to feed it’s people, but the GMO company still insisted. What kind of craziness is that? Smh… I just don’t understand. It makes me want to move to Europe. At least I wouldn’t need to worry about GMO, parabens, phalates… and a whole list of chemicals that are banned from cosmetics and food, in which the FDA still approves here. scary.

    I hope we put a stop to this GMO food. I know that crops may have been tested and are so called safe but we still don’t know what kind of bacteria they can produce. For all we know it could create a deadly virus and make everyone sick and there will be nothing we can do because there will be no cure for it at the time it happens.
