GMO’s and Infertility: Is There a Connection?
According to a recent study rats who were fed a diet of GMO food ended up becoming infertile. Researchers from different departments of the Suez Canal University of Egypt concluded that rats fed a GMO diet wound up not only infertile but also suffered from other adverse health effects as well.
As many of you who have been reading my newsletters know, I have long questioned the possible negative effects of eating GMO foods. I have espoused the belief that we are unsuspecting participants in the largest food experiment ever conducted on the human population. This experiment has largely gone unnoticed until people in the scientific, environmental and health fields began to question the efficacy of GMO crops.
Research has been slow to come forward largely I think because the mega companies and agra businesses have a vested interest in not seeing research done that may cast a negative light on the effects of GMO crops. This is beginning to change as can be seen by the results of this study and several other related ones.
The research scientists who conducted the Egyptian study concluded:
“GM corn or soybeans leads to significant organ disruptions in rats and mice, particularly in livers and kidneys. In addition they found other organs may be affected too, such as heart and spleen, or blood cells. The kidneys of males fared the worst, with 43.5% of all the changes, the liver of females followed with 30.8%”
In addition the researchers found that by day 91 of the study the rat population that was fed a GMO diet were completely sterile.
“The study found clear signs of organ pathology in the GM-fed group, especially in the liver, kidney, and small intestine. An examination of the testes revealed necrosis (death) and desquamation (shedding) of the spermatogonial cells that are the foundation of sperm cells and thus male fertility – and all this after only 91 days of feeding.”
This is not the first study to that has concluded that GM foods contribute to infertility. Researchers in Russia found that hamsters fed a GMO diet became sterile as well.
“Using hamsters as the test subjects, scientists observed that consumption of GM soybeans, which have never been a part of these creatures’ normal diets, tended to slow sexual maturity and gradually eliminate the ability to reproduce.”
These findings should cause all of us to consider what we are doing on a daily basis when buying and consuming foods and other items. Think about it for a moment. The next time you are in the supermarket and are going to buy the regular eggs, consider where those eggs came from. The chickens were undoubtedly fed GM corn and or soybeans which means that the eggs they bear are also GM eggs. Do you want to be serving something to your family that could cause their organs to be damaged and potentially cause them to be sterile?
Take this a step further. When you consider buying a vitamin from the local health food store, GNC or CVS can you be sure that it doesn’t contain GMO’s? I believe that most commercially manufactured vitamins have GMO bases (grown on corn, soy or some other GM medium) or are filled with binders and fillers which come from GM sources. This is a compelling reason to buy only pharmaceutical grade, non GMO vitamin, herbs and nutraceuticals.
In the coming months and years, I believe that more information, studies and revelations about the destructiveness of GMO will come to light. We are all having to make choices every day about our and our families health. Make the choices that promotes their wellness, don’t eat or buy products made from GMOs.
