The Very Real Danger of Genetically Modified Foods

Postby Shadowgirlau » Sat Jan 14, 2012 7:46 am

This article is very interesting as it is the first time I have read anything about research which was not initially to do with GM but ended up being so as researchers discovered unexpectedly that plant mi RNA survives human digestion and influences our cell functions something that has always been hotly contested by the makers and distributors of GM crops etc.

I have not checked it out on snopes as my connection timed out however I would not be surprised at all purely because in recent years there has been an increase in the number of people with allergies to all sorts of things, things that when I was growing up were rare by comparison ( I think I knew one person at school who was allergic to peanuts) Even when my kids were young, people with allergies were although increasing were still not the norm and hearing about anyone with cancer was a shock while today nearly every second person you meet has either an allergy of some sort or has a family member/friend or knows someone who has cancer.

Anyway here is the link -
