I just read an article by Robyn O’Brien regarding a genomics scientist speaking out against her. http://www.robynobrien.com/_blog/Inspiring_Ideas/post/An_Idea_Worth_Spreading,_A_Dialogue_Worth_Having/
I personally love and appreciate what Robyn in doing - spreading the word about unsafe food.
In this article, she talks about a Spanish researcher, “Jose L. Domingo found only seven peer reviewed papers on genetically engineered crop safety as of 2000, most of them dealing with short-term nutritional effect” and basically says studies have not been done to prove the safety (or non-safety) of GMOs (genetically modified organisms). I think we have an ongoing study.
It is my personal belief that there is a HUGE study going on right now on genetically modified foods, additives, antibiotics that are given to livestock, rBGH (recombinant bovine growth hormone) and processed foods. Look around, it looks to me that a study is happening in our own backyards. Look at your friends, your relatives, your neighbors and people-watch at the mall for 5 minutes: what do you see? Are a significant number of these people obese? Do a significant number of these people have health issues, some even noticeable health issues? In your circle, do you see people getting MS, Parkinson’s, cancer, etc. before they are even 30? I just read that cancer is the biggest killer of children under 15 (sorry I can’t remember where). YIKES!
Yes, sadly, WE Americans ARE the “study!” Americans are not getting healthier, and are not getting less cancer or heart disease. Is it time to stop listening to the so-called “experts” and start listening to our common sense?
