Are Genetically Modified Foods Safe or Not?Posted by: Finlay Hewitt | Posted on: July 12, 2019
Genetically modified (GM) foods are foods derived from genetically modified organisms (GMOs), where genetic material (DNA) has been altered in such a way that it does not occur in nature.
The biotech industry says that millions of people have eaten GMO food without any adverse effects. However, no one has monitored human health aspects of GM foods. In addition, even if the food creates health problems, it may take decades before the cause can be identified.
These GMO foods contain many dangerous chemicals which will cause many health issues. There are some lawyers who are working to help people who are suffering from illness due to these GMO foods. They help them to get some financial compensation.
If you or your family member is also suffering from diseases due the use of GMO products then you can also contact roundup lawyers to file a case against them. You can search for Monsanto roundup lawsuits to get some financial compensation from the company.
Allergy: Allergic reactions occur when the immune system interprets something different, and offensive, and reacts accordingly. All GM foods, by definition, have something foreign and different. As soon as GMO soybeans are introduced in the UK, soybean allergies skyrocket 50% in one year.
Gene transfer: It is possible that genes from GMO plants can be transferred to human intestinal bacterial DNA. A particular concern is an antibiotic-resistant gene used in creating GMOs. Scientists use it as a marker gene to identify genes that have been successfully changed.
Animal studies: There are almost no studies of eating in humans but in animals, it has the potential for pre-cancerous cell growth, a damaged immune system, a smaller brain, liver, and testicles, and a higher mortality rate.
