GMO Breakdown of Food, Good or Bad?
This topic has been coming up for who knows how long, many scientists and researchers have addressed GMO food products.
Even though they believe that these “special” food products are good for us and can help to benefit our health in the long run, but though the eyes of the consumer tells a rather different story from what you might expect.
Genetic splicing is nothing new to be honest, experiments such as these have been coded (hidden in plain sight) in various movies such as “Splice“.
You see the higher ups get their kicks showing you things hidden right in front of our very eyes, genetic splicing is one of the government’s top dirty little secrets that many Americans don’t have a clue is being conducted.
One of the most noted food products that has been pushed into the spotlight hundreds of time is GMO Corn which should give you a big hint as to where this is going, because it’s something that the average individual usually goes out to get from the grocery store to have for dinner later that night.
It’s not just corn that on the list of modified foods, it also includes others such as tomatoes, soya, carrots (to name a few), even tofu are targets for GMO engineering.
Organic foods will win here every time, they unlike GMO’s are natural which means that there are no use or harmful chemicals. One major example of that are the foods that you find at the fast-food restaurants, these are you’re trans-fatty food types.
The chemical di-hydro monoxide is known to be used on food products such as processed foods, a lot of controversy has reared its ugly head with citizens across the country.
The end result is not an ideal one, diseases such as cancer are caused by hazardous material left behind inside of our bodies after consuming these enhanced food products.
Cancer isn’t the only big worry, there are other adverse effects that can manifest from genetically modified foods.
Below is a list of other foods that can trigger other abnormalities and diseases.
GMO Health Issues:
- Can cause Autism
- Can trigger symptoms leading to Alzheimer’s Disease
- Type-2 Diabetes
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Leads to issues of Obesity
There are other factors involving the concern with the balance of nutrients from GMO foods, Mitochondrial dysfunction is what leads to the disease and adverse conditions (such as mitochondrial disease) mentioned in the bulletin above.
Mitochondria are specialized cellular parts (structured) that perform certain task functions within the body. They’re main priority is to generate energy (energy production), manage toxic elements inside the body (detoxification abilities), and cellular signaling functions (known as “apoptosis” & “necrosis” — cellular programming).
When combined with other health factors, the chances of severe illness and health deterioration will increase significantly. Mitochondrial dysfunction is closely associated with a life-threatening condition known as apoptosis , this is when cells in the bodies kill themselves off which results in cellular death (this is known as “Programmed Cell Death”).
Inadequate supply of nutrients (such as Vitamin D deficiency), will result in malnutrition which can also lead to apoptosis. Another factor that can cause cell death is known as Necrosis, which results in cell death due to severe trauma or infection.
Certain food additives used on products (such as vanilla ice cream), can be dangerous. One particular extract known as vanillin derives from vanilla bean extract.
This next part will piss off vanilla ice cream lovers out there I’m sure, but what gives vanilla ice cream its flavor is due to the vanillin element present in its content.
Vanilla flavoring is “synthetic based”, meaning that it comes from an origin source. That source is vanillin.
Vanillin rates low as a hazard to humans as it is used to help give vanilla its flavor, however it can cause irritation to the digestive tract. This is why your parents would tell you NOT to eat a lot of ice cream especially before dinner-time.
Large consumption of ice cream can lead to mitochondrial dysfunction, remember ice cream has no nutritional value which means it’s considered junk food. And what junk food products can interfere with the body’s detoxification system, but you see this is just many factors that can lead to health problems from non-nutritious foods we consume every day.
GMO’s fall into this category for the same reason, even “genetically modified foods” such as fish (salmon specifically), are potentially a threat to DNA alteration.
Your body is comprised of cells the make up its total composition, so what happens if a large number of cells die off too quickly?
You’re starting to catch my drift I believe, LOL.
GMO foods are basically experimental products in my opinion, pathogenic factors among chemical factors can cause trauma to healthy cells in your body. It can also cause issues with cellular signaling (cells react to specific signal patterns to carry out their functioning roles), which is where cells could die off (due to apoptosis).
GMO’s are still under study to verify whether or not they are safe for consumers to eat, for 2016 more conducted test are being ran on GM crops especially since they face much scrutiny from misinformation and manipulation of data for the potential side-effects they have over the masses (public).
This is why labeling of GM foods, should be heavily favored for products sold at supermarkets, and the local grocery establishments.
