Leaky Gut Syndrome and GMO Foods

29 Jun

I started having IBS symptoms in my 30’s, right around the time GE food entered our food supply.  I just spent a day in the emergency room with my daughter who had severe pain in the belly/abdomen area, and it looks like IBS as well if it’s not something more serious.  I have a young cousin who has an inflammatory bowel disease, and I know of another college-aged person who has intestinal issues.  The ages of the other three are 18, 20 and approximately 22.  That makes, including myself, four people in my own little corner of the world who have developed digestive disorders within the past 20 years.  Coincidence?  Did our youth always have these problems in the past? I can’t bring myself to believe it.

“What you might not know about food is that much of what we eat in the U.S. has been genetically manipulated.  Corn and soy based products, oils, food additives and much more.  A large percentage of what you eat out of packages comes from GMO foods.  These foods have not been adequately studied to be safe for human consumption and overwhelming evidence shows that these foods cause leaky gut syndrome, heightened food allergies, autoimmune disease, and a number of inflammatory health issues.   The following video is a much watch.  Get educated about GMO and help spread the word.  Food is important.  Preserving it’s integrity for future generations is not an option.”

You’ll notice that some of the things alluded to in this article as to what will happen in the future has already come to pass, such as the approval of GM crops of sugar beets and alfalfa.

In the Pilot Grove case, they finally reached a settlement in Sept. 2008 where the Pilot Grove farmer’s group would give $275,000 to fund local agricultural scholarships and will buy $1.1 million in Monsanto products over the next six years.  (Of course, anyone who buys and uses their seed will be in it for life.) The Pilot Grove Coop would develop and adopt a stewardship policy to avoid future patent infringement and would work with a third-party organization to provide training for employees.

Do you know what GMOs are ?

Despite the plethora of information that is out there in regard to GMO foods, or more accurately labeled GE foods, I am amazed by how many people remain either unaware of its very existence or completely misinformed.  I don’t want to get into too many specifics of the nature of genetically modified food when there is so much research out there already, although I will provide links for anyone who is curious and am reblogging this informative article through Ariston Organic’s blog.  What I find reprehensible is that the U.S. is by far lagging behind other countries in protecting their own citizens from the possible long-term negative effects of a scientific discovery that hasn’t been adequately tested to ensure that it is indeed safe, all in the name of profit.  Opponents, realizing that getting rid of GE foods completely would be a practically impossible feat to accomplish, are now attempting to have them be labeled, just like we have data on sodium content, fat content, etc., so that people can make healthy choices.  As it stands, this has been an uphill battle and we have far to go.  This is supposed to be a free country, and yet we don’t have the freedom to make an educated choice in what we eat?  This calls for a massive change.
