What Are the Dangers of GMO Soybeans?

Baked Goods

Overview

In the United States, the vast majority of soybeans, 87 percent, are genetically modified organisms, also known as GMOs, according to GMO Compass. These soybeans, which are primarily used for livestock feed, have been altered to include a gene that combats herbicides. According to Natural News, GMO soy is also found in up to 70 percent of food products in U.S. supermarkets, including cereals, breads, soy milk, pasta and meat. GMO soybeans are thought to have potentially dangerous effects on the environment and on human health.

Liver Changes

According to Molecular Geneticist Molecular geneticist Michael Antoniou on the Natural News website, GMO soy has been found to alter the activity of the liver in mice and rabbits. According to Antoniou, these findings suggest possible liver damage and toxemia related to GMO soybean consumption.

Allergic Reactions

According to the ProQuest website, the incorporation of a gene into a plant may unintentionally create a new allergen or set off an allergic reaction in people who are highly sensitive. For example, some children have severe allergies to peanuts. ProQuest reports that for this reason, a proposal to transfer a gene from Brazil nuts into soybeans was discarded.

    Hello Dianne,

    Have you had an opportunity to read “Eat Right 4 Your Type” by Dr. Peter J. D’Adamo? He specifically outlines foods for each blood type to bring health and wellness to all and is highly acclaimed in the Naturopathic community.

    I bring it to your attention as each blood type has many food avoids that will create illness as well as many beneficial foods that will return us to health and keep us healthy. As a blood type A, Non GMO miso rescued me from menopausal symptoms bordering on madness while all the “traditional” suggestions appeared to have no influence.

    I respect your research having done decades of it myself to bring me closer to optimal health but would be very disappointed for your research to mislead 25% of the female population blood type A+/A- who may eventually suffer as I did for lack of health education pertinent to their health.

    While one woman’s poison is another’s food should not be discounted just as we are not what we eat but rather what we assimilate.

    Respectfully your’s,

    Carol A Green

      Hi Carol,

      Yes, I did read that book. Just want to mention that miso is a safe product. Non-GMO makes it even better.
