Yet more bad news emerges about how genetically modified foods impact your health.
Time is running out to beat back GMOs!
Leukemia and anemia have been linked to GMO, or genetically modified organisms, in a new study. The toxins from these genetically engineered food products are absorbed into the body and wreak havoc on blood cells, causing damage and possibly deadly diseases as well. Belin Poletto Mezzomo, Anna Luisa Miranda-Vilela, and a team of researchers from the Department of Genetics and Morphology at the University of Brasilia conducted tests of GMOs on lab mice. The study was later published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Hematology and Thromboembolic Diseases. Toxins called Cry proteins were fed to the mice and immediately started to cause numerous blood abnormalities. Anemia was caused at the lowest dose. The introduction of these GMO toxins caused damage to bone marrow cells and and increased the number of leukocytes, a type of white blood cell associated with leukemia. On the 7th day of testing, the blood abnormalities steadily worsened.
Monsanto Corp, the leading producer of GMO crops and seeds, caught wind of this study and has now even threatened legal action against those who published this particular study.
With the debate over the safety of genetically modified food products heating up, more and more data is showing that several serious and even deadly health conditions can result from consuming such items. Other studies have shown that rats suffer from aggressive tumor development when fed GMO food and now Russia is banning imported food from the U.S. that is genetically modified. Several countries across the world have banned or required labeling of edible products containing GMO ingredients, but the United States seems to be far behind on this topic.
A worldwide protest is planned for May 25th to protest Monsanto Corp., which, in addition to their controversial patent infringement lawsuits and other business practices, are the leading developer of GMOs and have former executives currently holding high up positions in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
