Why are our supermarkets being flooded with genetically modified foods (GMOs) when a whole host of studies have shown that they are potentially dangerous to human health? "Frankenfoods" are increasingly appearing on supermarket shelves at a rapid rate. These foods are altered to withstand heavy applications of toxic chemicals, resist disease or contain more nutrients.
You can also opt for Monsanto Roundup Law if you want to file a Monsanto roundup lawsuit.
Currently, genetically modified (GM) corn and soy can be found in many processed foods. Many more GMOs are on the way and they probably won't be labeled. California recently lost a vote (very suspiciously at the last moment) to force companies to label GMO foods in their state.
The Center for Food Safety estimates that over 70 percent of the processed foods in American grocery stores contain genetically modified corn or soy. It won't be long until many more unprocessed foods will hit the markets containing the genetic modification.
List of GMO Food Sources
- Most of the genetically modified corn products forced on American consumers today are hidden in processed foods in the form of high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS), corn oil, corn starch, and various other corn-based additives. A landmark study has shown that GM corn consumption can lead to the development of cancerous tumors and diabetes.
- The most common genetically engineered food of all is the soybean. Since 1996, scientists have been creating varieties of soybeans that are resistant to both pests and herbicides, and they wind up in places you'd least expect them, like candy bars.
- Peas that have been genetically modified have been found to cause immune responses in mice and possibly even in humans. A gene from kidney beans was inserted into the peas creating a protein that functions as a pesticide.
