Genetically Modified Foods: Are They Harmful?

Is there a link between food allergies and Genetically Modified Foods (GMO)? "Since the introduction of genetically engineered foods in the mid 1990s, there has been a 265 percent increase in the rates of hospitalizations due to food-related allergic reactions." Check out Jennifer Grayson's article in the HuffPost Green for more information. 

To learn about disastrous results on animals after eating GMO feed, reactions in humans and possible changes to your gut flora AND how to avoid eating GMO's, read this article by the Weston A. Price Foundation. "Memos made public from a lawsuit reveal that the consensus among FDA scientists in the early 1990s was that GMOs were inherently unsafe and could lead to toxins, allergens, new diseases and nutritional problems. They urged their superiors to require long-term safety studies before any GM foods were allowed on the market. But the political appointee in charge of FDA policy was the former attorney of the biotech giant Monsanto and later the company’s vice president. The scientists’ warnings were ignored and today the FDA does not require a single safety study on GM foods."
