The Scary Thing About GMO That Nobody’s Talking About
Chris Newman

The point you’re making about GMOs’ impact on biodiversity is a sound one, but I’m afraid you’re totally uninformed about their deleterious health effects. Not all GMOs are necessarily harmful (it’s a mistake to lump them all together), but some almost certainly are. The most glaring example is gene modification that makes crops Roundup-ready so that they can be sprayed with liberal doses of Roundup. Roundup (i.e., glyphosate) is a probable carcinogen and causes intestinal permeability, which results in natural and unnatural toxins in our food seeping out into our bloodstream rather than going through the digestive tract and being properly detoxed by our liver, etc. If you want to educate yourself, I’d suggest this podcast to start with. Here’s the bio of the guy being interviewed, in case you think the “GMOs are bad for your health” stance is just something crazed, unscientific kooks believe:

Dr. Don Huber, Professor Emeritus of Plant Pathology at Purdue University, holds B.S. and M.S. degrees from the University of Idaho, a Ph-D from Michigan State University, and is a graduate of the US Army Command & General Staff College and Industrial College of the Armed Forces. He was Cereal Pathologist at the University of Idaho for 8 years before joining the Department of Botany & Plant Pathology at Purdue University in 1971. His agricultural research the past 55 years has focused on the epidemiology and control of soilborne plant pathogens with emphasis on microbial ecology, cultural and biological controls, nutrient-disease interactions, pesticide-disease interactions and techniques for rapid microbial identification.
