Majority of 'gluten-free' foods found to contain GMOs

(NaturalNews) In the wake of all the recent revelations about the dangers of GMOs, a special warning needs to go

out to all those health-conscious consumers buying "gluten-free" foods. As it turns out, most "gluten-free" foods

sold in the USA contain genetically modified organisms.

Why is this so? Because the primary ingredient in most gluten-free foods is corn. And most corn-based foods are

made with genetically modified corn. Around 85% of the conventional corn grown in the USA is genetically

modified corn, and that corn is engineered to produce its own deadly insecticide right inside every grain.

When GM corn is harvested and made into gluten-free foods, the insecticide stays with it and resides in the gluten-

free food. As a result, people who are buying gluten-free are often exposing themselves to the risk of toxicity from

GM corn.

What are those risks, exactly? No one knows for sure, as GMOs are still a radical agricultural experiment being

conducted on the population at large. But French researchers recently found that feeding a lifetime of GM corn

to rats a huge increase in the risk of developing horrifying, massive tumors and premature death. The rats who

were fed GM corn also suffered widespread organ damage.

How to avoid GM corn in gluten-free foods

The only gluten-free foods that don't contain GM corn are those foods that either don't use corn as an ingredient

or ones that use certified organic corn. GMOs are not allowed under an organic label.

Sadly, there are very few gluten-free foods that are also USDA organic. So gluten-free shoppers have very few

choice if they wish to avoid both gluten as well as GMOs.

Even worse, the fact that GMOs are still not labeled on foods turns the act of gluten-free shopping into a mystery

minefield of dangerous guesswork. The upcoming ballot measure Proposition 37 would, of course, mandate the

labeling of genetically engineered ingredients in all foods sold in California, and that is expected to cause sweeping

changes across the entire food industry if it passes.

In the mean time, my advice is to avoid all gluten-free foods unless they are USDA organic. If you don't, you may

be avoiding gluten but ingesting GMO instead, effectively trading one toxin for another. And that's not what you

bargained for, is it?

Check the labels of all gluten-free foods

Do the ingredients include corn? Corn syrup? Maltodextrin? These are all corn derivatives, and if they're not

USDA organic, they're likely to be genetically modified.

Of course, this is NOT true outside the USA. GMOs are already banned in many countries, and GMO labeling

laws exist in prominent nations around the world. This article is written solely for American consumers who remain

inundated with genetically modified corn grown from the evil seed of Monsanto and other biotech seed suppliers.

Beware of gluten-free. Do your homework before taking another bite. While avoiding gluten is a wonderful

strategy for many people, you don't want to trade one possible toxin for another possible toxin.


The USDA Admits Our Food Contains GMO

According to a recent article published in Green American magazine, 93 percent of Americans believe that

genetically modified foods should be labeled. However, only USDA-certified organic products cannot

intentionally contain genetically modified organisms (GMO), so identifying GMO foods and products in a

typical U.S. grocery store is  difficult. The following information can help.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) confirms that large percentages of the nation’s crops were

genetically modified in 2011: 94 percent of conventional soy and soy products; 90 percent of cottonseed, a

common ingredient in margarine, salad dressings and oils; and 88 percent of corn, contained in breakfast cereals,

corn flour products such as chips and tortillas, high-fructose corn syrup, soups and condiments. More than 90

percent of the U.S. canola crop also is now genetically modified.

The Independent, one of England’s leading newspapers, reported in 1999 that the artificial sweetener aspartame

has  been made with genetically modified bacteria since 1965. Aspartame, inconclusively linked with numerous

health risks, is present in more than 6,000 products, including diet sodas. Two other ubiquitous artificial

sweeteners, Nutrasweet and Equal, also contain aspartame.

The USDA further lists 95 percent of the 2009 U.S. sugar beet crop, used to produce conventional sugar, as

genetically modified. Non-GMO alternative sweeteners include pure cane sugar and honey from organic farms.

(NaturalNews) A breakthrough report on the nutritional density of genetically-modified (GM) corn crops demolishes all existing claims that GMOs are "substantially equivalent" to non-GMOs. Entitled 2012 Nutritional Analysis: Comparison of GMO Corn versus Non-GMO Corn, the paper reveals not only that GMO corn is greatly lacking in vitamins and minerals compared to non-GMO corn, but also that it is highly toxic and filled with deadly crop chemicals like glyphosate (Roundup).

The owners of the blog MomsAcrossAmerica.com say the report was shared with them by De Dell Seed Company, Canada's only non-GMO corn seed supplier, which obtained it from a Minnesota-based agricultural company called ProfitPro. Overall, the paper found that non-GMO corn is 20 times richer in nutrition, energy and protein compared to GMO corn.

    
Biotech lies exposed: Genetically-modified corn contains practically no nutrients but is loaded with chemical poisons

And as far as its overall percentage of organic matter is concerned, non-GMO corn was determined to have nearly twice as much of this vital component compared to GMO corn.
Non-GMO corn contains substantially more potassium, magnesium, calcium, sulfur and manganese

The field comparison also evaluated individual nutrient deviations, which revealed some shocking facts. Potassium, which is necessary for energy production and proper cellular function, is barely even present in GMO corn, having clocked in at 0.7 parts per million (ppm). In non-GMO corn, however, potassium levels were more than 13 times higher, testing at 9.2 ppm.

The disparity was even worse for magnesium, which tested at a mere 0.2 ppm in GMO corn. In non-GMO corn, however, magnesium levels were found to be 46 times higher than in non-GMO corn. Similar variances were observed for calcium, sulfur and manganese as well, with the contents of each being 12.4, 14, and seven times higher, respectively.

On the other hand, non-GMO corn was found to be free of chlorides, formaldehyde, glyphosate, and other harmful chemicals, while in GMO corn they were identified in dangerously high levels. According to an analysis of the report by MomsAcrossAmerica.com, GMO corn contains about 19 times more glyphosate than is permitted as a maximum in drinking water by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and 130 times more glyphosate than has been found in tests to cause organ damage in animals.

Similarly, GMO corn contains dangerously high levels of formaldehyde, according to the report. A previous study conducted by Dr. Don Huber on GMOs revealed that .97 ppm of formaldehyde is toxic if ingested by animals. As it turns out, GMO corn contains 200 times more formaldehyde than this maximum safety threshold.
Monsanto engaged in massive fraud with claims that GMOs are 'substantially equivalent' to non-GMOs

These shock findings are at great odds with the claims continually being made by agri-genocide giant Monsanto. On its corporate website, Monsanto claims that approved genetically-modified (GM) crops are "substantially equivalent" to non-GMOs, meaning they are not nutritionally different from non-GMO crops. But as this study shows, these claims are patently false, and indicate that Monsanto is engaged in a global agricultural scam based on complete lies.

"Glyphosate is a strong organic phosphate chelator that immobilizes positively charged minerals such as manganese, cobalt, iron, zinc, copper, etc. that are essential for normal physiological functions in soils, plants and animals," explains Dr. Huber about how GMO crop chemicals literally destroy the nutrient content of GMO crops.
