Human DNA absorbs GMO
The scientists found that consumption of GM products leads to the fact that the genes of these foods enter the bloodstream and are introduced in our DNA. According to a study published in Public library of science (PLOS), genes from genetically modified products were detected in DNA fragments, taken from 1000 samples of the person. According to a study published in Public Library of Science (PLOS), genes from genetically modified products were detected in DNA fragments taken from the 1000 human samples.
Details on Healthy-holistic-living: These genes have escaped the changes in the process of the digestive system in which they had to be destroyed. In fact, the blood samples showed a higher concentration of plant DNA compared to human DNA, which is a very worrying sign for the human body.
You may ask: «What kind of danger this information for my body?» It is very important to give you a brief idea about genetically modified foods and what effects they can have on your body.
The dangers of genetically modified foods
You’ve probably heard the acronym GMO in the past and you, of course, even seen the label on foods, which stated that this product is “GMO free”. Many food products contain this specific information, because GMOs are a serious problem when it comes to our health and here’s why.
GMO stands for genetically modified organisms. They represent organisms (i.e. plants, animals or microorganisms), where their DNA has been manipulated using various methods of artificial recombination and hybridization. The process of genetic modification of food (GMO) is intended to bring tangible benefits to producers and consumers of these products.
GMOs have the potential to develop such traits, such as resistance to the process of Browning in apples. For producers this means that they are more likely to protect their crops from genetically modified organisms, which resist plant diseases, and this, in turn, means higher levels of production. The consumer wins, because the products are cheaper, although many experts do not agree. The project «non-GMO», says: «Despite the promises of biotech industries, there is no evidence that any of the existing GMOs on the market offers increased yield, drought tolerance, enhanced nutrition or any other consumer benefit.»
The presence of GMOs must be indicated on food labels in many countries
May be fooled to think that it’s okay to consume foods containing GMOs, especially because their prices are much lower than non-GM foods, and they are not prohibited in the food industry. But beware, not all on the market foods good for you and genetically modified foods, in particular, can cause risk to your health.
Deceptive to think that it is normal to consume foods that contain GMOs, especially because their prices are much lower than natural, non-GMO foods, although they are not prohibited in the food industry. But beware, not all on the market foods good for you and genetically modified foods, in particular, can carry increased risks for your health.
According to the world health organization (who), gene transfer and the movement of genes from genetically modified plants in traditional cultures or related species, can influence food safety and food security.
Quote: «This risk is real as was shown when traces of maize type of GMOs that have been approved only for use in animal feed, appeared in food products from corn for human consumption in the United States.»
Currently, 64 countries around the world, including Australia, Japan and all countries of the European Union, require labeling of genetically modified foods. But this cannot be said about the United States and Canada, although the ABC News survey in 2015 showed that 93% of Americans believe that genetically modified foods should be labeled. As for the rest of the world, there are 300 regions with direct prohibitions of cultivation of GMOs.
Geneticist David Suzuki expresses its concern about GMOs
Geneticist David Suzuki expresses his concern that humanity for many years is part of a «massive genetic experiment», as thousands of people continue to consume GMO. He even used an analogy to further explain the process of artificial genetic modification and the fact that its drastic effects not amenable to real understanding.
He said, «One small mutation in a person can really change everything… the fact that you move a gene, one gene, one tiny gene from one organism into another, completely changing the context. It is impossible to predict how it will behave and what will be the result. We think that we improve these life forms, but it looks as if to take the orchestra of Toronto, prepared to play a Beethoven Symphony and then to catch on the street random drummers and put them in the orchestra to play a Symphony. «But it would sound quite different. Experts say that good intentions GMO cost a lot of money.»
Suzuki is only one of many who worries concerning GMOs. The truth is that the safety of GMOs are unknown, and need further careful studies to prove that there are any health benefits associated with GMOs. Thus, people are increasingly choosing to take matters into their own hands, choosing the purchase of food, non-GMO.
If you have not paid attention to the dangers of GMOs, now it’s time to pay close attention to what is in your food and how it is made. If possible, make an effort to eat foods that do not contain GMOs, to protect your health.
