HAVE GMOs BEEN PRODUCED, AS CLAIMED, WITH HIGHER NUTRITIONAL CONTENT COMPARED TO NON-GMOs?

Touted benefits of GMOs by proponents of GMOs include higher nutritional yields, less expensive food, food with medicinal benefits, and disease or insect resistant crops that require less herbicide or pesticide.

 

Nutritional Enhancement

There are strong doubts concerning the claim by GMO proponents that GMOs have either higher nutritional yield compared to non-GMOs or do not vary substantially in their level of nutrition. Genetic engineering has been used to increase the amounts of specific vitamins and nutrients in foods. This tactic, called nutritional enhancement, has been used to produce GM golden rice. This rice comes from a white rice crop inserted with the vitamin A gene from a daffodil plant. The vitamin level of the rice is beneficial in countries where there is a prevalent vitamin A deficiency.

A limited number of GMOs have enhanced nutritional content. Golden rice is currently the main nutritionally enhanced GM crop, although carrots have been created with more antioxidants, and bananas have been created with bacterial or rotavirus antigens. Researchers are currently focusing on prominent health problems like iron deficiency and the removal of proteins in foods that cause allergies.

One must be careful with haphazard nutritional manipulation of foods because not all of us will benefit from the added nutrition. The potential problems with GM nutrition enhancement include, but are not limited to:

{C}·      {C}Nutritional toxicities can develop when one consumes foods with unnaturally enhanced nutritional content. Vitamin A toxicity results in a form of liver inflammation and enlargement called hepatitis. Even the water soluble nutrients such as vitamins B1 (thiamin), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid) and B6 (pyridoxine) can result in toxicity when consumed in excess or imbalanced proportions.

{C}·      {C}GMOs contain various anti-nutrients that can bind to certain nutritional factors (i.e., phytates) that render them non-absorbable. In other words, we are not what we eat, but what we absorb from what we eat. The concept of “nutritional equivalence,” a term used by the GMO scientists to describe how GMOs’ nutritional content matches up with their non-GMO counterparts, is false. GMOs are not nutritionally equivalent to non-GMO foods, as described elsewhere in this book.

{C}·      {C}Consuming nutrients not based upon one’s individualized needs can cause malabsorption of other nutrients because of competition among nutritional compounds. Malabsorption means that needed nutrition may not be fully absorbed in the body.

Personalized nutrition based on the unique needs of the individual can go a long way toward preventing and treating a wide variety of health problems. Unreliable nutritional supplementation, such as what may occur with GM nutrition enhancement, may cause more harm than good. 

WHAT ARE THE CONCERNS ABOUT MONSANTO AND THEIR CLAIMS REGARDING GMO FOOD SAFETY?

An excerpt from Dr. Michael Wald's upcoming book, Frankenfoods - Controversy, Lies & Your Health available in 4 weeks!! Order your copy today (www.intmedny.com).

The concern that I and a large percentage of the scientific, health care and environmental groups and the public have is that it may take decades to fully appreciate the negative impact of genetically modified food consumption upon the public. I have heard pro-GMO geneticists claim there is no evidence that GMOs pose a health threat because people have been eating GMOs since the 1990s, and if real dangers existed, people would be dropping like flies. I believe that this statement is a misrepresentation or at least it is not based upon careful scientific scrutiny: since the introduction of GMOs, people are experiencing an increased risk of various diseases including some cancers, gastrointestinal problems and autoimmune disease, just to name a few…people ARE dropping like flies. Who is to say that GMO consumption is not to blame, or is not at least a contributor to the deterioration of our health and environment? One cannot rule these possibilities either out or in at this point. In the meantime, I urge people to avoid GMOs until more scientific studies have examined their impact upon human health and our environment worldwide. To paraphrase Star Trek’s Mr. Spock, when you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.
