(The Best Years in Life) Most Americans do not want genetically modified foods and consider them dangerous. Because the U.S. does not require manufacturers to disclose genetically modified (GM or GMO) ingredients on the product labels, the public is largely unaware of when they are purchasing GM foods. Such foods are now found in up to 70 percent of all grocery store products. While an unwitting public consumes more and more GM foods, evidence of their dangers continues to mount.
Genetically modified foods are created when genes from another species or
created in a lab are inserted into a food's DNA. The foods which have the
highest prevalence of genetic modifications include some of our biggest crops:
corn, soybeans, canola, tomatoes, lettuce, and potatoes. Corn oil and high
fructose corn syrup are widely used in food items. Virtually every salad
dressing and butter substitute finds that they contain one or more of corn oil,
canola oil or soybean oil.
A Russian study found that over 55 percent of the newborn rats from females fed
genetically engineered soy flour before, during, and after pregnancy, died
within three weeks and 36 percent were underweight. By comparison, only 9
percent of the offspring of rats fed non-GM soy died and less than 7 percent
Ninety-nine percent of GMO crops either
tolerate or produce insecticide - which might explain why we see bee colony
collapse disorder and massive butterfly deaths. If GMOs destroy our pollinators,
they could be more disastrous than the threat they pose to humans and other
mammals. In addition to possible extinctions and eco-system harm, GMO opponents
fear they could trigger the emergence of antibiotic resistant diseases due to
viruses and bacteria used to modify some GM foods. They also fear such foods
could raise the risk of developing cancer, lead to chronic illnesses such as
fibromyalgia and trigger food allergies.
