A recent study published in the scientific journal “PLOS ONE” found that large, meal-derived DNA fragments from GMOs are fully capable of transferring their genes directly into the bloodstream, deconstructing the myth that transgenic foods act on the body in the same way as natural foods.
A combined analysis of four other independent studies involving MORE than 1,000 human samples and a team of researchers from universities in Hungary, Denmark and the U.S. looked at the assimilation process for GMOs as they are currently consumed throughout the world.
Included were derivatives of Genetically Modified crops such as high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) from Genetically Modified corn, soy protein from GM soybeans, as well as meat derived from animals fed a GM-based diet.
After looking at the data on how the human body processes these and other forms of GMOs, the team discovered that DNA from GMOs is not completely broken down by the body during the digestion process. What would normally be degraded into smaller constituents like amino acids and nucleic acids was found to remain whole. Not only this, but these larger DNA fragments were found to pass directly into the circulatory system, sometimes at a level higher than actual human DNA.
In other words, the GMO’s code when entered in our bodies is not broken down and degraded but remains there simultaneously with your DNA code and possibly, overwrites it.
“Based on the analysis of over 1000 human samples from four independent studies, we report evidence that meal-derived DNA fragments which are large enough to carry complete genes can avoid degradation and through an unknown mechanism enter the human circulation system,” explained the authors in their study abstract.
“In one of the blood samples the relative concentration of plant DNA is higher than the human DNA.”
This is an astounding discovery that proves false claims made by Monsanto and others that GMOs are no different from non-GMOs as far as the body is concerned.
Monsanto even claims on its “Food Safety” page for GMOs that the DNA from GMOs is “extensively digested” and “presents no hazards,” both of which have now been shown to be lies.
Based on this latest analysis of how food genes are transferred from the digestive tract into the bloodstream, it is now apparent that the genes of GMOs pass into the bloodstream whole.
Their presence is also associated with major inflammatory conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease, adenoma and colorectal cancer.
None of this is really all that surprising, of course, as the biological activities behind how GMOs are processed by the human body have never been legitimately studied. Biotechnology companies have always just claimed that GMOs are the same as real food, without any evidence to back this up, and this has been enough for the government to keep them on the market for nearly 20 years.
“One small mutation in a human being can determine so much, the point is when you move a gene, one gene, one tiny gene out of an organism into a different one you completely change its context,” said David Suzuki, co-founder of the David Suzuki Foundation.
“There is no way to predict how it’s going to behave and what the outcome will be.”
It seems that we are all in the midst of one giant experiment. Intentionally, or not, the code of our DNA is aimed to be reprogrammed for some reason. And the best way to do this is through something we voluntarily consume like food.
