A Kick in the Gut? GMO Foods Alter Digestive Systems

Genetically modified foods, such as Monsanto’s Roundup Ready corn and soy, may have a negative effect on human digestive systems, particularly the intestinal bacterial balance, leading to allergies and a number of diseases, says a recent article published by the Alliance for Natural Health.

With zero human clinical trials conducted, there’s no conclusive evidence as to what long-term effects diets high in GMO foods will have, but scientists working with hamsters, rats and livestock who have ingested GMO corn and soy have found the subjects experienced an abnormal number of birth defects, incidences of sterility, higher infant mortality rates and bizarre mutant traits such as hair growing on the inside of the mouths of hamsters.

Because the (de)nature of genetically engineered foods is by definition myriad mutations all through the DNA sequence of the plants, scientists say these changes are not static, but dynamic, meaning they can change even while inside our bodies, rearranging our own physiology, causing damage long after we’ve passed the food from our system.

According to ANH, human DNA is already somewhat parasitic, with a portion of it originating from viral sources tens of millions of years ago, making the threat of GMO, even more confounding—what type of mutations can GMOs have on human DNA?

With the increasingly speedy deregulation of a number of genetically modified seeds from alfalfa to Kentucky bluegrass, the concerns for human health are also rapidly increasing as a number of recent studies link GMOs to human organ damage and birth defects.
