GMOs In Your Skin Care Products Could Be Making You Sick
Today I am going to talk to you about something that is very close to my heart. I apologize in advance because this email is a little longer than usual but I have so much I want to say about this topic.
As a clinical scientist, I have spent a lot of my career working with genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and studying how they affect people. For many populations, there are a lot of benefits to genetically modifying organisms; however, I believe that if GMOs can be avoided, they should.
GMOs are plants and other living organisms that undergo manipulation of altered genetics. This process is done in hopes to make that organism more appealing to consumers. Some brands of apples, for example, have been genetically modified so that they will not turn brown after slicing.
The FDA has concluded that there is no evidence that bioengineered food or plant ingredients are less safe than those produced through conventional methods. However, the long term effects have not been studied and several independent studies has concluded that GMOs pose health risks.
One health risk that has been linked to GMOs is called Morgellons disease. Those with this disease experience a crawling, biting, or stinging sensation beneath the skin. Research initially conducted by Dr. Joe Cummins, Professor Emeritus at the University of Western Ontario, found that those with Morgellons disease tested positive for agrobacterium. This bacterium is used to make many GMP products and is capable of genetically transforming to affect humans.
But Morgellons disease isn’t the only reason to avoid GMO skin care products. Here are some other reasons to consider:
GMOs were first explored in 1996. It is difficult to know what the long-term effects are.
Known health risks.
Aside from Morgellons disease, there are other health risks associated with the usage or consumption of GMOs. When organisms are genetically modified, the certain genes are forced to behave differently. This means that GMO products are more likely to release allergens and induce allergic reactions than non-GMO products.
Toxicity from pesticides and herbicides.
Some GMO products have been modified to produce their own pesticides and herbicides while others require an excessive amount for the seeds to grow. These toxic chemicals have negative impacts on humans and have been proven to cause digestive health issues and cancer.
