Are Allergies Linked to Genetically Engineered Foods?

What are allergies and how they develop?

The body’s immune system reacts to what it sees as foreign particles invading allergens unwanted calls by a number of mechanisms cascade that ultimately destroyed.

This is all very well when it comes to foreign invaders potentially dangerous. However, it is not as good as in the case of allergies are hypersensitive immune system reacts unnecessarily and unfairly identify harmless substances as harmful and attack ferociously.

This fierce attack to cause allergic reactions leading to a catalog of problems ranging from sneezing, hacky cough, sore throat, runny nose and itchy eyes … or death as a severe asthma attack.

Examples of substances that cause allergic reactions include:

Pollen, which is a common allergy trigger as many people know. In addition, it is another matter particles in the air as dust pollen, dust mites, and mold spores. Allergens include insect stings, latex, chemicals from cleaning products such as triclosan and bisphenol-A (BPA)

Then there are those allergies to common foods, such as peanuts, tree nuts, soy, sesame seeds, eggs, milk, wheat, shellfish (crustaceans in particular) and mustard

Allergies and genetically modified foods

Now, to make matters worse the evidence suggests that (GM) GM contributed to an increase in allergies. It has been said that safety standards are not sufficient or adequate to protect us against the dangers of GM foods, and identify a large number of risks.

By JM Smith act many side effects associated with allergies: A good starting point for the book entitled “The risks of genetically modified genetic documented Roulette” is health food Numerous studies of people and animals that defies erroneous assumptions. that have been made that GM foods are safe.

Ask soybean, corn and canola genetically modified crops have caused an increase in allergies?

Through studies of evidence suggests that the increase in allergies in the United States, for example, is linked to genetically modified foods. In the nineties mid-nine in the process transgenic bacteria and virus, and other genes have been artificially inserted into the soybean, corn and canola DNA. Evidence suggests that these unlabeled GMO foods have found their way into the diets of people in the United States and have been responsible for triggering allergies life-threatening and have contributed to the increase in allergic reactions.

Taking for example soy bean, when a food has been genetically modified to give rise to the production of a novel protein. It is believed that this novel protein is responsible for the allergy. In addition to soybeans, which also happened in the mid-nineties, when a Brazil nut has been changed and consumed. Allergic reactions as humans have been confirmed by blood tests instead. Fortunately, it never went out.

A database was established to compensate for proteins with amino acid sequences of genetically modified foods. This database was used to find which of these proteins caused GM allergies. If it has been identified in a genetically modified food was recalled later. However, some allergies that cause GM food with its new proteins were able to go to the market without being detected because the database (WHO standards) has not yet been compiled. This was the case of GM soy did not try.

And it does not end there.

To make matters worse, the gene was inserted into soybeans after consumption was able to find its way into the DNA of human gut bacteria through a process called horizontal gene transfer (HGT). This helped gut bacteria to produce the allergenic protein, although the soy product was taken market. The fact potentially allergenic protein inside live in the intestines

Make no mistake, if the insertion of new genes in transgenic crops is completely safe and without any interference. GM insertion process can destroy or alter the DNA causing significant changes in the natural functioning of the plant by altering the expression of the protein. This could lead to a new protein or several of them the appearance of allergies. It has been said that what happened in soybeans and other crops.

Since 2004, farmers have increased herbicide on genetically modified by a massive 86% in the case of soybean fields cultures. Unlike non-GMO glycophosate herbicides high levels are linked to increased allergies. It comes with a whole list of conditions: fatigue, digestive problems, skin irritation and skin conditions like acne … because eating GM soy.

Soybean and peanut allergy

Consumption of soy protein by its GM may cause peanut allergy. This is caused by the soybean protein cross-react with peanut. Those who are already allergic to peanuts are more likely to have an allergy to.

Can you explain the doubling of peanut allergy 1997-2002?

Playing Russian roulette with our health: genetically modified foods

Biotechnology companies have come out with the realization of public disapproval for not labeling their foods GMO. Security vulnerabilities have been lax in allowing long-term health problems is now updated, as in the case of allergies.

However, many people are shopping for non-GMO certified organic food. Campaigns are underway for some time, accurate consumers effectively on non-GMO information, arriving at grocery stores nationwide. An example of this is the “Organic Consumers Fund other solution is to avoid foods that are known to have been genetically modified addition to soybeans, corn and canola that includes: .. papaya, crook neck squash and cotton. ..

Remember, allergies are not limited to GM soy. There are other change may cause health problems GM foods. I hope I encouraged the reader to delve into this.
