Harvard Study Proves How Dangerous GMOs Are to Humans
Researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) have conducted a study which asserts that carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere are “stripping important food crops of their nutrients”.
The crops measured in the study were:
• C3 plants
C3 plants are able to convert CO2 into energy; however researchers claim that through experiments, these crops added an artificial enhancement of CO2 into the human body which causes a negative effect on:
• human immune system
• cell development
• hemoglobin production
• brain function
• lowers IQ
Samuel Myers, lead author of research physician at HSPH said: “Global iron and zinc deficiencies are an enormous public health problem. A lack of sufficient zinc and iron in the diet has led to the loss of about 63 million life years annually.”
Experiments continued on C4 crops such as corn, sorghum and other plants that have open-top chambers that allow CO2 enrichment.
Myers’ team found that “5 to 10% reductions in nutrients like iron, zinc and protein” were prevalent.
The lead author made it clear that CO2 was not the definitive cause of the nutrient deficiency; however Myers concluded that “no matter what the cause, the effect could be really significant – and harmful.”
The majority of the crops studied were genetically-modified organisms (GMO) created by corporations such as Monsanto.
Monsanto has created deadly versions of canola, corn, cotton, soybean, sugar beets and alfalfa; just to name a few. Their most well-known product, Round-Up, has prompted the creation of plant life that are resistant to the weed-killer.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) concluded in a study that GM foods contain pesticide residue has shown to produce human cellular endocrine disruptors measured at 1000 times below.
Corroborating the NIH, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) found that “GM foods pose a serious health risk.”
Eight hundred scientists from the Institute of Science in Society (ISS) have come together from all across the globe to demand that Monsanto’s GM experiment end.
In an open letter “from world scientists to all governments concerning genetically modified organisms” it was expressed that “GM crops offer no benefits to farmers or consumers. Instead, many problems have been identified, including yield drag, increased herbicide use, erratic performance, and poor economic returns to farmers. GM crops also intensify corporate monopoly on food, which is driving family farmers to destitution, and preventing the essential shift to sustainable agriculture that can guarantee food security and health around the world.”
The letter states: “We urge the US Congress to reject GM crops as both hazardous and contrary to the interest of family farmers; and to support research and development of sustainable agricultural methods that can truly benefit family farmers all over the world. We, the undersigned scientists, call for the immediate suspension of all environmental releases of GM crops and products, both commercially and in open field trials, for at least 5 years; for patents on living processes, organisms, seeds, cell lines and genes to be revoked and banned; and for a comprehensive public enquiry into the future of agriculture and food security for all.”
In 2012, the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) discovered that high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) dramatically effects the brain’s ability to cognitively function; i.e. it makes you stupid .
Based on further research into the brains of the rats tested, scientists found that HFCS was actually blocking the rat’s ability to regulate insulin, effecting how their brain cells stored sugar for future use as energy stores. This problem was found within the brain’s areas for processing thoughts.
