Many people still believe that GMOs have not been proven to be harmful
to humans.

I will do my best in this article to give you the latest studies, and
let you decide for yourself.

Here’s why children are at the highest risk from the potential toxicity of GMO foods:

Kids are more vulnerable to allergies
Kids are more vulnerable to digestive/allergy issues with milk
Kids are vulnerable to antibiotic resistant diseases
The fast-developing systems of kids are more susceptable

GMO Study

Because children’s bodies go through rapid growth development, scientists utilyzed young rats in an independent GMO study.

After just 10 days the rats displayed highly noticeable organ system damage, including:

- damaged digestive function and immune systems
- tinier brains, testicles and livers
- atrophing in the liver,
- and potential pre-cancerous intecell growth

Besides breakfast cereals, snacks, pizza, and much more, GMOs are hidden in many food products that you assumed were perfectly healthy for your children.

They include:

Vitamins

…and are hidden in many common ingredients,
in many, or most, commercially processed foods,
such as:
Amino Acids, Aspartame, Ascorbic Acid, Sodium Ascorbate,
Vitamin C, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Flavorings (“natural” and “artificial”),
High Fructose Corn Syrup, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein, Lactic Acid,
Maltodextrins, Molasses, Monosodium Glutamate, Sucrose,
Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP), Xanthan Gum, Vitamins, Yeast Products

10 Studies Demonstrating the Toxicity of GMOs

You may have heard that there are studies demonstrating GMOs are safe. You should know that two major ones have been retracted.

Very informative, 5 minute video on “The Alarming Truths About GMOs”

A graphic showing the so called “health” foods that either contain GMOs, or are owned by corporations that fund campaigns to resist GMO labeling.

Whatever your conclusions you’ve drawn from the above information: if there’s any doubt at all remaining about possible long-term toxicity in these foods, why would we feed them to our children? It’s one thing to gamble with our own health, but the developing bodies of children, who are more susceptible to food and other environmental toxins, is another matter.
