10 Problems with Genetically Modified Foods (GMO)

10 Problems with Genetically Modified FoodsDo you really want to eat GENETICALLY MODIFIED FOODS (FrankenFood) without having any long-term research done on how this is going to impact your body someday? After all, a GMO food is foreign and unknown to your body, which doesn’t know what to do with it, so it just stores it up.

Do you really want to eat GENETICALLY MODIFIED FOODS that have had it’s DNA  genetically altered to include TOXIC PESTICIDES, INSECTICIDES and AGENT ORANGE?

What can we do?

  • We can educate ourselves and others about GMO
  • We can help get laws passed to require labeling of GMO foods
  • We can boycott GMO food producers and resellers
  • We can buy/support more Organic food providers

If we will all do this, the production of organic foods will increase, the cost will come down, and the giant BioTech companies (Monsanto) that are taking control of our food supply will suffer because there is an educated and knowledgeable population that doesn’t want their damn GENETICALLY MODIFIED AND TOXIC FOODS.

Aspartame – Enjoy Your Daily Dose of Sugar-Free NeuroToxic Poison

Aspartame Brain damageAspartame, also known as NutraSweet and Equal, is one of the most widely used artificial sweeteners on the market today. It is used in thousands of foods and beverages including chewing gum, candies, diet soft drinks, desserts, yogurt, condiments, and even vitamins and pharmaceuticals.

Astonishingly, although millions of people consume Aspartame every single day, it was never tested on humans prior to its approval.

First introduced in the 1980s, Aspartame has constantly been linked to a broad range of health problems. In a report by Dr. Joseph Mercola, he wrote that “Aspartame accounts for over 75 percent of the adverse reactions to food additives reported to the FDA.” Here’s just a few of the over 90 different documented symptoms listed in the report as part of Aspartame dangers:

Headaches/migraines, Dizziness, Seizures, Nausea, Numbness

Muscle spasms, Weight gain, Rashes, Depression, Fatigue

Irritability, Tachycardia, Insomnia, Vision problems, Hearing loss

Heart palpitations, Breathing difficulties, Anxiety attacks, Slurred speech

Loss of taste, Tinnitus, Vertigo, Memory loss, Joint pain

Still drinking that diet soda?

According to researchers and physicians studying the adverse effects of Aspartame, the following chronic illnesses can be triggered or worsened by ingesting of Aspartame:

Brain tumors,  Multiple sclerosis,  Epilepsy

Chronic fatigue syndrome,  Parkinson’s disease,  Alzheimer’s

Mental retardation,  Lymphoma,  Birth defects

Fibromyalgia,  Diabetes

Still adding that packet of NutraSweet or Equal to your coffee?

Dr. Mercola has called Aspartame:“By Far the Most Dangerous Substance Added to Most Foods Today.”

AspartameSo what exactly is Aspartame?  Aspartame is a methyl ester of the dipeptide of the natural amino acids L-aspartic acid and L-phenylalanine.

When Aspartame is digested, the body breaks it down into aspartic acid, phenylalanine and methanol” – and it is methanol that is one of the root problems with Aspartame. When consumed via Aspartame, methanol is free to break down to toxic formaldehyde, and humans are incapable of converting the toxic formaldehyde into harmless formic acid (unlike other animals). To summarize, the methyl alcohol travels through your blood vessels into sensitive areas, such as your brain, that are loaded with ADH, which converts methanol to formaldehyde. And since there’s no catalase present, the formaldehyde is free to cause enormous damage in your tissues.

All you really need to know is this:

Aspartame is the excrement of genetically modified E. coli bacteria.

Wait… Read that previous sentence again. That’s right, GMO “E. coli bacteria!” 

Aspartame Baby Drinking Diet CodeA study conducted jointly with Harvard Medical School and published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, found that drinking as little as one diet soda sweetened with Aspartame per day could cause an increased risk of leukemia and lymphoma in adults. Now, how many children do you see drinking diet sodas every day?

And to whom do we have to thank for giving us Aspartame?

Donald RumsfeldDonald Rumsfeld.

That’s right…The Donald Rumsfeld of “war on terror” and “weapons of mass destruction (WMD)” fame.

By 1979, FDA investigators and independent scientists agreed there was no doubt, based upon objective analyses of evidence that had accumulated for over a decade, that Aspartame was deathly poisonous to lab animals and caused a statistically significant number of them to develop brain tumors. On September 30, 1980, the FDA concluded that Aspartame should not be approved and that the FDA “has not been presented with proof of reasonable certainty that aspartame is safe for use as a food additive.”

Enter Donald Rumsfeld, who had become the CEO of G.D. Searle, manufacturer of Aspartame.  At Searle, Rumsfeld was on a mission to force the FDA to approve Aspartame for human consumption – a known carcinogen and neurotoxic poison.

Rumsfeld, while still CEO at Searle, was part of Ronald Reagan’s transition team after he was sworn in as president in 1981. This transition team hand-picked Dr. Arthur Hull Hayes, Jr., to be the new FDA commissioner. Dr. Hayes, a pharmacologist, had no previous experience with food additives before being appointed director of the FDA. One of Hayes first official acts as FDA chief was to approve the use of Aspartame as an artificial sweetener in dry goods in 1981. In 1983, just before leaving office in scandal, Hayes approved the use of Aspartame in beverages. Ultimately, when G.D. Searle was absorbed by Monsanto in 1985, Rumsfeld reportedly received a $12 million bonus for his efforts.

So, because Rumsfeld placed politics and greed above public health and safety, Aspartame has enjoyed over 30 years of marketplace success and is now in an estimated 9,000 commonly-consumed products in at least 100 countries. Meanwhile, adults and children continue to consume Aspartame-sweetened products on a daily basis, unaware of the dangers they are digesting. Example: Just try to find a package of gum that doesn’t have Aspartame…

And we wonder why we have some many unexplained illnesses and diseases.

Elect Coca-Cola to the Corporate Hall of Shame

Coca-Cola Hall of ShamePeople need to educate themselves and be more aware of what’s happening with our food supply. “Big Food” Corporations have taken over and they only care about their profits. They are genetically modifying our food on the premise that is a “good thing”, but they don’t want to label their foods as GMO. They are using dangerous chemicals in their food/drinks while telling you how good it is for you.

Coca-Cola supports this non-labeling of GMO products. Why? You think maybe some of those many, many chemicals used in their soda may not be safe… Knowing how good an oven cleaner Coke is, who in their right mind, after reading the ingredients in it, would still drink it! Then wonder why they are sickly all the time.

I know some people just don’t care, or just don’t want to know. Or they say “yeah, but I’m drinking diet Coke.” Even worse, with all the damaging “artificial sweetener” chemicals instead of sugar.

AspartameCoca-Cola is on the list for a few reasons. Their support for not labeling GMO’s and its role in the diet-related disease epidemic?

Speak up and tell Coke to stop running misleading ads about Diet Coke and Aspartame.

Help elect Coca-Cola to Corporate Accountability International’s Corporate Hall of Shame. This is for corporations that corrupt the political process and abuse human rights, the environment and our public health.
