The great presence of transgenic products incorporated in different products by some multinationals are poisoning the human organism.
Among the proven clinical effects that must be taken into account, to take prudence before any genetically modified (GMO) or transgenic organism there are a series of cases already documented more than a decade ago. However, despite the announcements of damage to health, the most affected are still the same human beings who are forced to consume them.
Transgenic products, from which we feed ourselves and consequently poison without realizing it, most of the time include toxins, antibiotics and other associated elements that come without proper labelling.
Greenpeace spokesperson, Cristina Caleandro, explained for the Epoch Times on May 22, in a presentation called “Terra Futura” in Florence, Italy, that, “at the moment that animals are being given trans-genital foods daily, this is consumed by man through milk, cheese and all derived products, as well as meat .”
“They are not only in the flesh but in most of the preserves,” added Cristina Caleandro. “These include among their products, soybeans, corn, oils and other transgenics. Also in the windows of the supermarkets was found an oil, as is the case of ‘Ventamaro’, which is produced in combination with transgenic corn.”
We can add that oils, corn, potatoes, soybeans, etc, genetically modified and in various aggregates, are used in many products such as candy, cookies and other foods that are consumed daily, without a labelling obligation.
The spokeswoman of Greenpeace, explained to the Epoch Times, that the firm that sells the well-known cheese “Parmigiano”, finally adhered to continue making it with animals that eat normal and non-transgenic pastures.
In the journal of the National University of Mexico, UNAM, Dr. Úrsula Oswald Spring, in her report of January 1, 2001, named some clinical cases that, according to the current food regulations, even after 10 years leave us many questions.
Some of the proven clinical cases:
The common dietary supplement L-tryptophan was genetically engineered and in 1998 caused the death of 37 Americans and the disability of about 5 thousand people, before being banned by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which regulates US food policy .
Generically manipulated drugs caused the Myalgia Eosinophilia Syndrome (SEM), which causes severe blood disorders. It was developed by the Japanese pharmaceutical company Showa Denko, which acknowledged having used these genetically modified products.
Popes damaged the immune system of mammals, and researcher Arpad Purstai found that the potatoes were being manipulated with a viral CaMv promoter, which includes a toxin that damages the immune system. The potatoes caused severe stomach disorders.
Increased toxins and allergens were detected in the plants manipulated with transgenics. This study was developed by the same scientific group of Arpad Pusztai. The scientist also detected that they were capable of producing new toxins and unknown allergens. The researcher reported that he did not receive support to continue the investigations.
A genetically modified soybean with a Brazil nut increased allergies to different foods. It was detected that 8% of children in the United States presented from mild symptoms to sudden death. The study was developed by the University of Nebraska, which estimated that the combination of genes and various transgenics increased the vulnerability of sensitive people and disrupted their immune system.
It was found that the benefits of Phyto-oestrogens in genetically manipulated foods are reduced. It was a study by Marc Lappe in 1999 published in the Journal of Medicinal Food, which determined that the body’s natural protectors against cardiovascular diseases and malignant tumours are reduced. He determined that transgenic products alter the natural defences of the human being and increase severe diseases by not correctly preventing the infectious and degenerative processes of the body.
By eating meat and milk from animals treated with seeds or transgenic hormones, increases the probability of breast cancer and prostate cancer by 180%. In this regard, the UNAM study mentions that in the United States, one in three people are exposed to a tumour diagnosis due to the consumption of Genetic Bovine Growth Hormone. (rBGH)
Raw Wisdom means that in 1994 the US FDA approved rBGH, the genetic growth hormone of Monsanto. Dr Samuel Epstein of the University of Chicago indicated that the risk of breast and prostate cancer, for this reason, increased to more than 400 to 500%. The study was later confirmed in the laboratory with the use of rats.
It was assumed that the hormone should be destroyed in the pasteurization of the product that normally lasts 30 seconds. However, in the studies, it was revealed that with more than half an hour of boiling the milk, only 19% of the hormone was destroyed.
According to Raw Wisdom, those in charge of US food policy, in the FDA, both Margaret Miller, Managing Director of the Human Health Consultation Service, and Michael Taylor, executive assistant to the FDA Director, were interspersing their work with periods of time for Monsanto and others to the FDA, which is why products that were banned in Canada, New Zealand, and Australia, were not banned in the United States.
Cows treated with transgenic animals require more antibiotics, and these pass to the human body by ingesting milk, its derivatives and meat.
The use of antibiotics in genetically modified corn was proven, and this would also be transferred to humans. In 1998 the British Royal Society detected that ampicillin was being used in the gene. Only the use of ampicillin was banned since it would create resistance in the human being.
It was discovered that modified foods bring internal toxins. This refers to the transgenics that bring in their own pesticides, toxins from which the human being later feeds. The impact on health is long-term, as the body begins to eliminate these toxins until it exceeds its limit.
Traditional genetic selection and genetic manipulation in laboratories
Traditionally, man kept the best seeds of his crops for planting in the following years. It was also used to cross several varieties of plants of the same family so that it is a tastier, sweeter, stronger and longer lasting variety.
Growers in their eagerness to improve their products were able to produce varieties of plants, such as wheat and rice that could contain more food.
“Growers cross similar organisms with a similar genetic makeup by transferring tens of thousands of genes,” explains a National Geographic report.
For its part, Genetic Engineering introduced to the food market and our tables another type of modified products, which have no relation to their origin nor are they developed in the traditional way.
Today what we do is transfer genes from species that have no common relationship with each other, and only one or few genes. ”
“They extract a particular gene from any living organism and introduce it into another being: for example, a gene from an animal in a salad and thus create a salad that produces vitamin C. Other plants receive genes from the bacterium Bacillus Thiringiensis (BT), to create their own insecticides, says a report by National Geographic.
However, the same geneticists recognize that the insects that should feed on the leaves of the plant will die in a few days, and not only those that the farmer wanted to move away from but all those that allow the planet’s biodiversity.
