Healing from GMO’s

Have you come to a point in your health journey where you realize some of the fuels you have been putting in your body were contaminated substances masquerading as “food”.  GMO’s have been controversial topic in many areas of the world.  Over 50 countries have banned them, yet one government has failed to live up to their commitment to keep the the lives safe of those they are supposed to serve – The United States.

The amount of chronic health continues to rise at epidemic rates.  Common sense tells us the manipulation of the food supply is playing a significant role in the astronomical adverse health among not just adults but even more so in the youth.   Join me as I touch on ways to begin the healing process after exposure to foods which have been altered from what our creator made.

GMO pt 2 – Connecting the dots- BT Corn

This is a follow up from my previous post regarding GMO trends.

How many know what BT corn is?  I have heard of GMO corn and I know it is modified to include insect repellent but beyond that didn’t really know the particulars. Well, fortunately my dinner was hours ago because the search results make my stomach turn…

From Monsanto’s site: Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) is a bacterium that occurs naturally in the soil and produces proteins that kill certain insects.

Ok, so we have this stuff called BT, that belongs IN dirt, which is now IN corn which the insects eat – then what happens?

University of Califonia San Diego describes it this way:  Bt has to be eaten to cause mortality. The Bt toxin dissolve in the high pH insect gut and become active. The toxins then attack the gut cells of the insect, punching holes in the lining. The Bt spores spills out of the gut and germinate in the insect causing death within a couple days.

Are you thinking what I am thinking?  What happens to all of this BT that is IN the corn which the insects DON’T eat?  You know – the trailer loads upon trailer loads the farmers harvest… Does it magically disappear out of the corn?  And, isn’t there a fundamental flaw in the logic – the bugs have to EAT the corn for it to work.

What about the mentioning of “high” pH – makes me ponder if that is another clue.  Questions such as: If an insect has low pH does BT not affect them? How does sugar and SAD {standard American diet} affect our stomach pH?  Does it make it more acidic than what it was designed for?  Is BT safe for us IF our stomach pH is at the proper level?  What happens if our pH in our stomach becomes unbalanced?

I read further on the UCSD site and they stated BT is safe in mammals with no adverse effects… Really? That is very reassuring, but you know something just doesn’t seem right about that. Let me go visit Pubmed and see what research turns up there…

Effect of genetically modified corn on the jejunal mucosa of adult male albino rat.

It could be concluded that consumption of GM-corn profoundly alters the jejunal histological structure. [2nd part of small intestine – tissue, especially microscopic]

This one isn’t on corn – but it is the BT cotton…

Occupational hazards and health cost of women cotton pickers in Pakistani Punjab.

Cotton pickers working in Bt cotton fields are found to have less occupational health hazards compared to those working in non-Bt cotton fields. Thus generating awareness among cotton pickers for adopting precautionary measures during harvesting and the use of Bt cotton seed can result in a decline in the ill-effects of cotton picking.

How interesting when folks were educated about the HAZARDS they showed less illnesses… Sigh.

What are your thoughts about this one?

So…. what do you conclude from all of this?  What else should we search out to see about other connections?  Does the  Microbiome   post shed any light?

GMO Trends 1996-2016

Another exciting day! Got my login credentials for the online portion of my training… Watching first webinar now… and some fabulous information on genetically modified foods… Especially this chart on planted crops in last 10 years is rather interesting!  Do the trends remind you of anything?

What else has trends with similar growth rates?  Will be interesting to see other data and any correlations… {see GMO’s pt 2 – connecting the dots & BT corn}
