Consumer alert: GMO apples and potatoes are a public health risk
(NaturalHealth365) It’s long been known that GMO produce can have unpredictable and often very undesirable side effects when consumed by living creatures. Now newly developed GMO apples and potatoes that do not brown are a new threat to the health of humans and animals everywhere. These apples and potatoes use double stranded RNA (dsRNA) to disable the browning genes inside their structure.
Shocking revelation: The Institute for Responsible Technology states that Brazilian researchers fed little bits of dsRNA to honey bees in their youth. The dsRNA used was taken from jellyfish and is not normally found in bees. While researchers didn’t expect anything interesting to happen, what they found was after eating just one meal with the foreign dsRNA, the honey bees became radically different in their health, their physiology, and their behavior.
If just one meal of foreign dsRNA can do this to bees, what will a regular diet of it in these new GMO potatoes and apples do to humans and higher animals? By 2016, the human population may be exposed to a very toxic food – check out this video (below) for the scientific truth:
USDA using humans as guinea pigs without their consent
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) approved these GMO potatoes and apples to be sold as consumer goods in the United States. It is unclear whether the scientists at this organization read the report about the dramatic changes just a small amount of foreign dsRNA brought about in honey bees. If they did, it seems highly irresponsible of them to have approved these GMO products for human and animal consumption.
Human behavior and physiology can potentially be changed by these new GMO apples and potatoes.
Since the bees were so radically changed by the dsRNA, there is a very real chance that the same thing could happen to humans who consume the same dsRNA, which is included in the new GMO potatoes and apples. People who eat commercially made apple and potato products will be at risk for the GMO dangers associated with these plants. Of course, anything made with GMO potatoes and apples could be a public health threat, but (unfortunately) most people do not look to see if their produce is GMO free. That’s why it’s so important to share this information with family and friends.
The public needs to speak out against these dangerous new GMO products
We deserve easy access to GMO free products. However, as long as people willingly accept GMO produce without being aware of or caring about GMO dangers, products like these clearly dangerous apples and potatoes will be introduced to the market and no one will know the effect they will have on humans until people have been harmed by them.
GMO labeling is a must so people can choose responsibly and essential for consumer protection – especially considering what we know about the proven threats to human health by eating genetically manipulated foods.
We must speak out about GMO dangers and demand GMO labeling. Access to GMO free products ought to be an option for everyone – especially those opposed to becoming part of a human experiment by the government.
Take action today! Everyone is encouraged to sign the IRT petition – which opposes GMOs – and tells retailers NOT to sell food that has been genetically engineered. Together, hopefully, we will stop this crazy idea from becoming a reality.
