The potential dangers of Genetically Modified Foods have been well documented in recent years. However, recent medical research combined with new documentation posted at health and wellness portal BeWellBuzz.com has discovered a new batch of potentially harmful side-effects which GMO´s transfer to the human body.

Genetically modified foods (GMO) are those foods that are primarily derived from genetically modified organisms. These genetically derived organisms have undergone specific changes to their DNA using genetic engineering techniques that exploit the natural forms of gene transfer. Scientists at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have warned about potential health problems associated with GMO´s as far back as the early 1990´s. According to documents released from a lawsuit, the scientific consensus at the agency was that GMO foods were inherently dangerous, and might create hard-to-detect allergies, poisons, gene transfer to gut bacteria, new diseases, and nutritional problems.

“The GM soybean and corn varieties used in the feeding trials ‘constitute 83 percent of the commercialized GMOs’ that are currently consumed by billions of people,” stated a research paper documented by the Institute for Responsible Technology. “While the findings may have serious ramifications for the human population, the authors demonstrate how a multitude of GMO-related health problems could easily pass undetected through the superficial and largely incompetent safety assessments that are used around the world.”

In recent months, doctors have deferred to prescribe GM-free diets to their patients. According to Dr. Amy Dean, a Michigan internal medicine specialist, and board member of AAEM, “I strongly recommend patients eat strictly non-genetically modified foods.” Ohio allergist Dr. John Boyles continues to go on the record about the dangers of GMO foods by stating, “I used to test for soy allergies all the time, but now that soy is genetically engineered, it is so dangerous that I tell people never to eat it.”

After reviewing more than 600 scientific journals, world renowned biologist Pushpa M. Bhargava concluded that genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are a major contributor to the sharply deteriorating health of Americans. American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) has been warning use of GM foods and how these genetically modified foods are a threat to human health. However, the production and sale of GMO´s continues and it is left to consumers to decide whether it is suitable for consumption.
