Eating GMOs Is An Unsafe Bet
by Gordon Masters
An article written in the 'Columbia Daily Tribune' suggests 'Eating GMOs Is An Unsafe Bet' ....
'When ingesting food that has been genetically modified, you are gambling with your health.
The ill effects of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) — including corn, soybeans, tomatoes and, yes, even potatoes — are well documented but ignored by the powers that be.
In the case of GMOs, the Food and Drug Administration has ruled that food that has been genetically altered is no different from "regular" food.
Not so, says Jeffrey Smith, author of "Genetic Roulette — the Documented Health Risks of Genetically Engineered Foods" (Yes! Books, 2007).
In case after case — from the United States to the United Kingdom, India and Russia — it has been well documented that GMOs are harmful to health.
There are those individuals who apparently can eat darned near anything with no bad results, just as there are those who don't get the flu or who don't suffer from copious ingestion of E. coli.'
