GMO And Inflamed Colon

Swollen Digestive TractAttention Crohn’s and IBD Sufferers – Harvard Researchers Discover the Obvious About How Genetically Modified Foods Lead to Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis

A September 16, 2010 conducted by Cell Host & Microbe, Harvard School of Public Health (“HSPH”) researchers found that “certain bacteria that inhabit the intestines provides the environmental trigger that initiates and perpetuates chronic intestinal inflammation in individuals who are genetically susceptible to inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).”

Crohn’s and IBD are chronic inflammatory disorders that afflict more than 5 million people in the U.S. Approximately 30,000 new cases are diagnosed each year. The principal forms of IBD are Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Although intestinal bowel syndrome (IBS) is not mentioned in the study, it is clear that the same issues apply to IBS sufferers.

The various forms of IBD, IBS, Crohn’s and ulcerative are the three highest risk factors for colorectal cancer. For most people with one of these ailments, it is when, not if, for colorectal cancer.

Lead investigator Wendy Garrett, assistant professor of immunology and infectious diseases at Harvard said, “In this study, we identified two microbes that instigate gut inflammation that leads to inflammatory bowel disease ….”

These microbes were identified by Russell L. Blaylock, MD and Daniel C. Dantini, MD more than a decade ago. But their studies and books have been ignored or labeled controversial by the industry because their books identify the causes of these bacteria microbes as coming from genetically modified foods and the dangerous addictive chemicals added to packaged foods by food manufacturers.

The study alleges that an “individual’s genetic background influences what bacteria reside within his or her intestine.” Senior author Laurie Glimcher, the Irene Heinz Given Professor of Immunology at HSPH said, “Whether IBD is caused by individual species of bacteria or disruptions of entire microbial communities remains controversial.” It only remains controversial because of the political might of Monsanto to silent or dilute its critics.

To any Crohn’s, ulcerative colitis and IBD sufferer who has been diagnosed with malignant colon cancer, it is neither controversial nor disputed. We all have a genetic predisposition. The question is what activates the genetic disposition in people with family histories of digestive diseases. Growing evidence points to the bacteria remaining in the digestive track after eating genetically modified foods.

Thirteen years of research, reading more than 4,000 books, articles and studies and writing four health books with my co-author, Ashley F. Brooks, led us to a different conclusion. The conclusion is supported by more than 600 studies from independent scientists and researchers.

The genes of genetically modified foods are split with the E. coli bacteria, Bt toxin and other “gene promotors” that leave the bacterium’s residue in your gut that causes IBD, IBS, Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis. It didn’t get there by accident. The statistical increase in digestive diseases and colorectal cancer can be directly traced to the creation of genetically modified foods and the addition of dangerous addictive chemicals in packaged foods.

The effects of genetically modified fruits and vegetables, factory farmed meats and addictive chemical additives, such as MSG, high fructose corn syrup, maltodextrin and others, caused one author to be diagnosed with malignant colon cancer.

Even after surgery, the Crohn’s, IBD and ulcerative colitis continued and actually got worse until one author stopped eating the genetically modified foods and any product containing chemical additives in what the manufacturers described as “healthy” foods.

Factory farmed beef, pork and poultry come from animals kept in confined pens, shot-up with Bovine Growth Hormones (animal steroids), fed on genetically modified corn (not their natural food) and given antibiotics in their food daily. The animals are kept in pens that are knee deep in urine soaked manure that have contributed to so many of the food recalls in the past three years. Cows fed on GMO corn dies in 140 to 160 days unless slaughtered sooner. The bacteria in the GMO corn feed kills them.

In the case of beef, the dangers have reached a level where hamburger producers put ammonia into their hamburger to stop the spread of E.coli. Double cheese ammonia burgers? Well, that is what America is eating at fast food chains. […]

Anyone who has Crohn’s, IBD, IBS or ulcerative colitis will tell you that it is the chemicals in their food that makes them ill. One author stopped his suffering by switching to a chemically-free diet of organic foods and taking natural enzyme supplements. Only by giving up the source of the bacteria – genetically modified foods and dangerous chemical additives – can one hope to jettison the bacterium that causes their illness. Live a chemically free life or die a toxic waste dump consisting of Big Food, Big Oil and Big Pharma chemicals found in our foods, drugs and in the air from disasters like the Exxon Valdez or the BP Deep Horizon oil rig.

It doesn’t take an industry funded, self-serving study to tell Crohns’, IBD, IBS and ulcerative colitis sufferers the obvious. Garbage in, garbage out applies to human beings as much, if not more than to computers. But with food, it is garbage in and the garbage stays in your gut, organs, muscles and tissues for ever.

If you are what you eat, then Crohn’s, IBD, IBS and ulcerative colitis sufferers are toxic dump sites for the dangerous bacteria residues left in your gut by eating packed foods, factory farmed meats and genetically modified fruits and vegetables.
