According to one study, the obesity epidemic in the United States began in 1996, the same year GMOs entered the US food chain and in a big way. Pop companies such as Coke and Pepsi were among the first at putting the GMO poison in their products in the form of corn fructose sugar. Most corn grown in the USA are GMOs. Coincidence? Not likely.
My girlfriend and I went on a diet of organic food and quickly discovered that we eat less than when we eat GMO tainted foods. I quickly lost twenty pounds despite eating hefty amounts of organic chocolate bars and other organic foods. My skinny girlfriend also lost weight.
My girlfriend and I noticed that friends are hungry after eating GMO tainted foods, often within minutes, but when they come to eat organic foods at our home, they eat little food and are stuffed for hours.
I also lost my allergies to a cat named Sabina, carpet dust, and housework.
We had video games in the eighties and nineties, and lots of things where we sat and did nothing, like play board games, so that’s not why people are obese today. I drank Coke and Pepsi in fairly hefty amounts when I was younger, and I never gained weight. Neither did any of my friends.
But now, Coke and Pepsi products are considered major culprits in the obesity epidemic, even though those companies have been producing their products for well over a hundred years, and the epidemic has only existed for less than twenty years. Of course, corn fructose sugar could be the culprit because most (if not all) of that’s made from GMO corn.
GM foods were first put on the market in the early 1990s. Typically, genetically modified foods are transgenic plant products: soybean, corn, canola, and cotton seed oil. These are items that are used in numerous kinds of processed foods, from ketchup and mustard to tortilla chips and TV dinners.
“If GM foods are contributing to the rise of autism, obesity, diabetes, asthma, cancer, heart disease, allergies, reproductive problems, or any other common health problem now plaguing Americans (and there are plenty of independent peer reviewed studies showing this), we may never know. In fact, since animals fed GMOs had such a wide variety of problems, susceptible people may react to GM food with multiple symptoms. It is therefore telling that in the first nine years after the large scale introduction of GM crops in 1996, the incidence of people with three or more chronic diseases nearly doubled, from 7% to 13%. -Food Matters 2009”
