There are very real dangers of genetically modified foods (GMO). Many of these dangers are known, but the ones that concern me more are the ones that are unknown. Robyn O’Brien, author of The Unhealthy Truth, tells us that “When companies like Monsanto insert foreign genetic materiel into a host gene, we might know what happens some of the time, or even most of the time. But nobody yet knows what happens all of the time. There are just too many variables.” Our food supply has become toxic to our children. At least one out of every seventeen children under the age of three suffers from food allergies. (That’s more than double the number a decade ago.) Hypnosis weight loss clients at Slender For Life™ learn that they can make the change from genetically modified processed food to organic non-GMO food. And, they learn that they can prepare healthy inexpensive meals quickly and affordably.
The Very Real Danger of
Genetically Modified Foods
Chinese researchers have found small pieces of rice ribonucleic acid (RNA) in the blood and organs of humans who eat rice. The Nanjing University-based team showed that this genetic material will bind to receptors in human liver cells and influence the uptake of cholesterol from the blood.
The type of RNA in question is called microRNA (abbreviated to miRNA) due to its small size. MiRNAs have been studied extensively since their discovery ten years ago, and have been implicated as players in several human diseases including cancer, Alzheimer’s, and diabetes. They usually function by turning down or shutting down certain genes. The Chinese research provides the first in vivo example of ingested plant miRNA surviving digestion and influencing human cell function in this way.
Should the research survive scientific scrutiny — a serious hurdle — it could prove a game changer in many fields. It would mean that we’re eating not just vitamins, protein, and fuel, but gene regulators as well.
We all need to learn more about genetically modified foods. Have we changed our food supply forever? Is there any going back? Have we allowed companies like Monsanto to change human gene regulators? So many questions and so little public discourse.
Here is what I know: You can buy non-GMO food that is affordable and you can easily and quickly make delicious healthy meals. If you think that it would just be too hard to change the way you are eating, discover what hypnosis for weight loss can do for you.
