Strains of corn, cotton and potatoes have been genetically modified to contain a gene copied from an insect-killing bacterium called Bacillus thuringiensis, or Bt. This gene is in every cell of the plant. When insects eat any part of the plant - the leaves, the stem, the roots they will consume the Bt toxin and die.
“It appears there is a direct correlation between GMOs and autism.”
Dr. Garry Gordon
, who is on the Board of Homeopathic Medical Examiners for Arizona and is Co-Founder of the American College for Advancement in Medicine, warns:
“If [Bt-toxin] is causing an increased propensity for our intestine to become permeable or leaky and for foods to be presented to our bloodstream in a premature fashion, the havoc that it will cause will be across the entire spectrum of disease, from premature aging and Alzheimer’s to Parkinson’s to autism to cancer to asthma.”
Research At This Time Is Inconclusive
A Canadian study done in 2011 at Sherbrooke Hospital discovered that 93% of pregnant women they tested had the Bt toxin in their bloodstream.
And 80% of their unborn fetuses also had the
Bt toxin in their blood.
Unfortunately, there currently isn't enough conclusive research or evidence to link GMOs to autism spectrum disorder. But that being said, we're still waiting for the link to vaccinations, too.
But I don't think we have to wait for the scientists in their crisp, clean white jackets to help us.
We can think for ourselves and become the researchers.
We can find the answers for ourselves.
We have to.
How To Remove GMOs From Your Family's Diet
Follow a GFCF diet
, then remove all Genetically Modified Crops from your diet. These would include anything made from the following plants and vegetables:
Cotton (Cottonseed Oil)
Sugar Beets (Most Sugars)
Yellow Crookneck Squash
Video Worth Watching on GMOs
If you haven't had the chance to watch it yet take some time to view the movie Genetic Roulette
. You can read more about the movie in my post, What Do GMO Foods Have to Do With An Intolerance to Gluten and Other Food Intolerances?
This video below about how GMO foods alter organ function is a bit deep (a little warning) but it's showing through research how eating GMO foods can affect our organs and overall health and well being.
