Vital Link article on health hazards of genetically modified foods

CAND logoA 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 was written by Claire Robinson, research director of Earth Open Source.

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.
