Understanding the risks gmo's and modernized foods

  1. 1. Modernized Foods and Your Health Daniel Stickler, M.D. www.PaleoDoc.com www.SynchronicityWellness.org
  2. 2. Nutritional Value 50% drop on average of the nutritional Values 1950 vs. 1999
  3. 3. • • • • Natural selection Artificial selection GMO Non-organic foods – Grown with herbicides – Grown with pesticides • Processed foods • Proteins – Feedlot cows – Caged poultry – Animals raised on modernized foods
  4. 4. • Natural is the hybridization of food over time • Artificial is the forced and accelerated hybridization – Sort of GMO – Forced selection of traits and mutations
  5. 5. • 14 chromosome Einkorn (AA) • 28 chromosome Emmer (AABB) • 42 chromosome triticum aestivum (AABBDD)
  6. 6. • Artificial selection was performed by doing thousands of forced hybridizations in the 1950’s and 60’s
  7. 7. • Genetically Modified Organism "any living organism that possesses a novel combination of genetic material obtained through the use of modern biotechnology”
  8. 8. How is it created? + Antibioticresistant marker
  9. 9. • EMS alert in 1989 • All came from Showa Denko labs – Used GE plasmids to make tryptophan – Had also reduced carbon filtration • Multiple other cases identified prior to 1989 • Investigation found the they had been using GE plasmids since 1984 – The current strain was strain #5
  10. 10. • Not a precise technique, very crude • Random insertions • Epigenetics or other activations • Increased energy consumption • Possible antibiotic resistance carried along
  11. 11. • 1st GM crop was FlavrSavr tomato – Rats at first refused to eat it – 7 of 40 rats died at 2 weeks – 35% developed stomach lesions • GM potatoes – Rats developed precancerous cell growths in the intestine  size of brain, liver, and testes  infection rates, blood sugars, anemia • Liberty Link corn – Chickens died at 2x normal rate
  12. 12. • Bacillus Thuringiensis – bacteria that produces a protein endotoxin • Produced inside plant rather than sprayed • Kills Lepidoptera larvae • Thought to be very specific for crop pests • Has been shown to kill Monarch caterpillars when pollen lands on other plants….bees? • Thought to be safe in humans – Even if not, digestion will destroy the protein toxin
  13. 13. • Several studies suggest otherwise • CryAb1 toxic in human cell cultures • Intestinal disturbances • Liver, kidney, spleen, and pancreas toxicity in animal models • Canadian Study 2011 – – Present in 93% of pregnant females tested – Found in 80% of the fetuses
  14. 14. • What are Roundup Ready Crops? • Guess who makes them? • Guess who makes Roundup?
  15. 15. • Herbicide – poisons plants by interfering with an enzyme necessary for making amino acids • Shikamate pathway is not found in humans, so not harmful……… • BUT
  16. 16. • Plants now concentrate herbicide inside plant • Some of our intestinal bacteria use Shikimate pathway • Glyphosate has another mode of action – Chelation of cations • Plants are essentially given AIDS by glyphosate and they die from infection – Fusarium fungus is common and frequently found contaminating feed
  17. 17. • Urinary Glyphosate levels • 44% of tested population had detectable levels in their urine • Levels were very low but present
  18. 18. Glyphosate
  19. 19. • • • • Gene stacking Diminishing nutrient values Combined toxicities Gut bacteria – Easily take up transgenes and promoters – Changes to microbial balance • Survival competition • Micronutrient depletion – Antibiotic resistance genes – ? Leaky gut – ? allergies
  20. 20. Think you are safe by just avoiding the veggies and fruit?
  21. 21. Watch for Part 2: Modernized Foods and Your Health Pastured vs. Factory farmed meats
