In a previous articles of cancer series we talked about
- “Fight Against Cancer“ We talked about cancer properties ,what is cancer ? cancer cell division, cancer sign and symptoms and what’s the common treatments and other procedures and techniques.
- “Cancer Fighting Foods” We talked about the foods which have cancer fighting properties.
- “Cancer Causing Foods” we talked about the foods which have cancer Causing properties.
Here today we are going to talk about genetically modified organism facts.
GMOs VS CANCER
Where many people believe that changing the DNA of a animal or plant has a significant effect on a person’s chances of developing cancer. where some studies and researchers are against on that.A professor Dr. Kevin Folta and chairman of the Horticultural Sciences Department at the University of Florida, Gainesville, who replied that “the short answer is no, there is absolutely zero reputable evidence that GMO foods cause cancer.”Cancer is a multiple group of diseases with many possible causes, but GMOs are not one of them. In fact, future GMO plants will play a role in prevention through traits engineered to produce nutrients that help fight cancer or drive out naturally occurring compounds that increase cancer risk.
5 Genetically Modified Foods You Should Avoid
1) GMOs Corn
Corn is nowadays common food when we talked about GMOs. Some studies say Genetically engineered corn contains the highly toxic gene Bt (Bacillus thuringiensis), which Monsanto introduced in the 1990s to make plants immune to Roundup, which is insect killer.
2) GMOs Soybeans
In US around 75 – 80 percent soybeans are genetically modified. Genetically engineered soy, including allergies, sterility, birth defects, and offspring death rates up to five times higher than normal, according to Dr. Joseph Mercola in the Huffington Post.
3) GMOs Sugar Beets
A sugar beet is genetically modified sugar beet that has been genetically engineered by the direct manipulation of its genome using biotechnology. Now the hazards of an already toxic substance are exacerbated, presenting the likelihood of increased cancer rates.
“Sugar is not just an empty calorie, its effect on us is much more insidious. It has nothing to do with the calories. It’s a poison by itself,” Lustig says.
4) GMOs Aspartame
Aspartame (APM) is an artificial substitute is made from genetically modified and is used in basically every diet soda and product on the market. Natural News reported in one study, of the 48 rats given aspartame, up to 67 percent of all female rats developed tumors roughly the size of golf balls or larger.
5) GMOs Canola
Genetically modified canola is a genetically modified crop. Canola is a genetically engineered oil developed in Canada from the Rapeseed plant.Rapeseed oil is poisonous to insects and used as a repellent.The kidneys and the liver are absolutely vital to our existence so ingesting a genetically modified food like canola oil is really not something to take lightly.
