http://indiatoday.intoday.in/site/story/toxin-from-gm-crops-found-in-human-blood/1/137728.ht They told us that the GM foods were harmless. They used a bacteria to make plants more resistant to disease by genetically splicing it's DNA with the plant DNA. They said it would be rendered harmless in the human gut. THEY WERE WRONG. It's now being found in human blood after consuming a diet of GM foods. What do you think?

Did you really believe them?

no, I didn't. I wonder, do you have links to scientific studies on 'blood' and why it should not be 'shared'? I am assuming that you are of a particular denomination that refuses transfusions. I admire the stand and would like to know more about it.

I was being a bit lazy wasn't I? I value other's opinions and that was part of why I asked. I am well aware of the scriptural injunction against eating or partaking of blood and why it is spiritually forbidden to do so. I also believe that the spiritual has bearing on the physical, so ok...I will do my own research.

Danish scientist Niels Jerne shared the 1984 Nobel Prize for Medicine. When asked why he refused a blood transfusion, he said: "A person's blood is like his fingerprints—there are no two types of blood that are exactly alike." There are to many factors within each persons blood to acurately match as Niels Jerne points out. Then there is blood born pathogens. Some undetecable and some that only show up years after infection.

I don't know why anyone should be surprised. "You are what you eat," did no one tell them that? It's so simple a young child could understand it. But I guess when all you can see is dollar signs you kind of miss the other stuff. It makes me angry that we had to come this far for someone to start to take notice. It will be too late for many of us. Maybe all of us.

Now you're sounding like me. And it is dollar signs, or if not JUST dollar signs something more sinester. Like getting rid of us quicker?

Like population control? I guess their other plans aren't working as fast as they'd like. But what happens when these genetically modified organisms are in everything? Have they stored enough "clean" food to last them eternally? Because this is like Pandora's box; once it's opened, no one can close it. Do they think they're immune to that? I suspect that even our suspicions don't go far enough.

I'm sure they've stored heirloom seeds for themselves to use after the collapse of civilization. Kinda like fuedalism, we the serfs get the poor quality food while the Lord of the Manor gets the prime cuts and first fruits. You are right about it being a Pandora's box, my hope is in my beliefs that God will intervene and cleanse the earth. What's yours?

Why Indian Government encourages organic manures over chemical fertilizers? Because chemicals get accumulated in food chain and ultimately reaches human body. I learned this in seventh or eighth class. It is in the course of CBSE books of science - "the food chain" "the food pyramid" -- why everyone forget it. For sure chemicals will accumulate in the vegetables and fruits and they will enter into food chain and ultimately human body. Likewise, disposing used detergent and cleaners in soil also intoxicates the soil and those harmful chemicals enters in food chain.

This is not just a chemical additive, though those can be dangerous too. It is actually using DNA from one species to enhance another species.

Means something related with Genetic Engineering? Effects (good or bad) of genetically-modified food items can show up after years of consumptions...they can be extremely dangerous also.

Both chemically saturated and genetically engineer foods are dangerous. Our meat is laden with chemicals as well. I just wonder when the economic and spiritual crisis becomes to much for the human race what will happen then. I'm a firm believer in you are what you eat, what are we becoming?

Oh, I am seeing that a lot of foods are not what they seem. I have friends going completely vegan and buying only organic due to the poison they put in our foods..

I love tomatoes fresh from the garden, still warm. Juicey and very flavorful. I noticed a long while back that tomatoes where mealy and dry, pink instead of red. No flavor and felt like mush in your mouth. Then I found out they've used porcine DNA (pig) to make the flesh of the tomatoe less likely to bruise. I want my big, red and juicey tomatoes back!

I planted green beans and cucumbers, I should get a couple tomato plants as well..My son absolutely loves cucumbers, but I won't allow him to eat the skin when we buy them, so I grow them and he loves eating the whole thing...:)

Thank you debrakcarey - you seem to do a lot of research - I think GMO foods are forbidden in some parts of Sweden and the rest of Europe. http://www.gmo-free-regions.org/gmo-free-regions/sweden.html

It is not just the eating of them that is dangerous, it is the growing of them as well. We are messing with things we don't fully understand. It is pride and arrogance to think we know enough to alter the fabric of nature.

Yes, the man has not been humble enough to keep to what our Creator has given us. We can only wait for tha New World that He has planned for the future where He will no doubt correct what man has destroyed. I did a search with the word "food" on watchtower.org and found many interesting articles. Have you tried the search function there? - It is very useful. Better times are ahead of us..

Being found in the blood and being harmful are two different things. Our digestive systems are full of many, many different kinds of bacteria, and they are far from harmful. In fact, without these symbiotes, we would not be able to digest food at all, and we would die! Many other bacteria hang out in or on us and cause us no negative effects. The simple presence of these bacteria does not spell danger. Only time will tell whether they hang about harmlessly or cause damage.

B. thuringiensis appears to be the same organism as Bacillus cereus, a usually harmless soil organism, and Bacillus anthracis, the cause of anthrax. What gives them their distinctive properties are the genes encoded by the plasmids they contain. A Danish study on B. thuringiensis in fecal matter of greenhouse workers. http://aem.asm.org/cgi/content/full/68/10/4900 From PubMed. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16043311 And to be clear, this is germs in the digestive tract from eating unwashed foods. This organism is found in the soil originally. Found in blood of hospital patients from contamination of surfaces http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19443973 Clearly, if it isn't normal gut flora it is dangerous.

What do I think? I think we're a constant experiment for our government.

Or by THEIR superiors. Population control is not a nasty conspiracy theory. It's documented that they want to reduce the size of the population of the earth. Somehow, they've got the idea that they're more important than the masses and more worthy to survive.

nobody knows what the effects of genetically modified plants are going to be. any agricultural group that says they are completely harmless is talking out its backside. you want something else sinister - what about the seeds sold to third world farmers that are deliberately made infertile, so the farmers have to keep buying more seeds?

It about the money, always the money. There is a Cree proverb; Only when the last tree has withered, and the last fish caught, and the last river been poisoned, will we realize we cannot eat money.
