A new peer-reviewed article has been published on the health hazards of genetically modified foods in Vital Link, the journal of the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (www.cand.ca). The article:
- leads with the Seralini et al (2012) study, which remains the most thorough and detailed study ever to be carried out on a GM food
- reviews additional evidence from animal feeding studies with GM foods
- supports the American Academy of Environmental Medicine’s (AAEM) conclusion that GM foods have not been properly tested for human consumption but that animal studies offer
- ample evidence of probable harm”
- notes that some people in the US have reported improvements in their health and the disappearance of sometimes serious symptoms just by eliminating GMOs from their diets
- recommends choosing organic and Non-GMO Project Verified foods, and foods derived from crops that are not subject to genetic modification.
