This GM insecticide toxin is already showing up in fetal blood,
which means it could have an untold impact on future
Bt Toxin is a Built-In Pesticide
Upwards of 85 percent of U.S. corn
crops contain a special
gene added that allows them to produce an insecticide.
This way, when bugs attempt to eat the corn they're killed
right away (specifically their stomach is split open)
because the plant contains an invisible, built-in pesticide
Jeffrey Smith, executive director of the Institute for
Responsible Technology, wrote:
"Mice fed natural Bt-toxin showed significant immune
responses and caused them to become sensitive to other
formerly harmless compounds. This suggests that Bt-toxin
might make a person allergic to a wide range of substances.
GM Insecticide Poisons Also Showing Up in Waterways
Now that this GM toxin is showing up in waterways, it has
the potential to devastate aquatic life and continue to spread,
uncontrolled and unrestricted, across the entire United States
...about 85 percent of the corn grown in the United States is
genetically engineered to either produce an insecticide, or to
survive the application of herbicide. And about 91-93 percent
of all soybeans are genetically engineered to survive massive
doses of Roundup herbicide.
What this means is that nearly ALL foods you buy that contain
either corn or soy, in any form, will contain GM components
unless it's certified organic by the USDA.
There's very convincing evidence that eating these genetically
modified foods spells nothing but trouble for your health.
Smith also mentions an Italian study where they fed BT corn
to mice. As a result, the mice expressed a wide variety of
immune responses commonly associated with diseases such as:
types of cancer
What ultimate impact these GM foods will have on your health
is still unknown, but increased disease, infertility and birth
defects appear to be on the top of the list of most likely side
How to Say "No" to GMOs
If you don't already have a copy of the Non-GMO
please print one out and refer to it often. It can help you identify
and avoid foods with genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
Also remember to look for products (including organic products)
that feature the Non-GMO Project Verified Seal to be sure that
at-risk ingredients have been tested for GMO content.
When possible, buy your fresh produce and meat from local
farmers who have committed to using non-GM seeds and avoid
non-organic processed foods as much as possible.
Contact your Senators and Representative and encourage them
to support legislation requiring mandatory labeling of genetically
