Your immune system is the first line of defense against cancer and it is also the final arbiter in your fight against cancer.
A healthy immune system will hunt down and destroy cancer cells.
The health of your immune system is dependent upon the health of your digestive system.
It is important to review why crops that are genetically engineered as pesticide producers are implicated as a factor in the explosion of intestinal and immune disorders in the United States.
These genetically engineered crops attack the health of the digestive tract, and the health of your immune system. They damage your intestinal lining and contribute to the overgrowth of harmful and deadly bacteria in the intestinal tract.
Damage to the Intestinal Tract.
Crops are genetically engineered for insect resistance. A harmful bacteria known as Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) has been sprayed on crops for years to kill harmful insects. Monsanto has genetically engineered crops, such as corn and soy, to make them insect repellent.
Sections of the DNA from the bacteria Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) have been isolated and inserted into plant cells. The result is the Bt toxin becomes part of the plant’s DNA and, thus, is part of every cell in the plant.
When the plant is eaten by the target insect the Bt toxin binds to the receptors in the insects gut, causing the gut wall to break down. This allows the toxin and normal gut bacteria to enter the body. As a result, the insect dies.
Monsanto claims that the portion of the Bt DNA that is used in their Bt insecticide crops does not survive the digestive process in humans; but if it did, there is no reason to worry because Bt toxins are selective and only bind to receptors in the gut of insects. Humans do not have these receptors. However, contrary to Monsanto’s claims, independent researchers involved in Bt toxin research say there is no such thing as absolute selectivity.
There is a stark correlation in the increase of the number of cases of intestinal bowel syndrome (IBS), when plotted against the number of acres planted of genetically engineered Bt corn.
Evidence is accumulating that Bt toxin does enter into the human digestive track and affects the lining of the intestines. The resulting damage to the intestinal lining allows toxins, bacteria, and food particles to “leak” out of the intestine into the bloodstream. The body responds to each leak of foreign substances into the bloodstream by triggering an immune response. Perforation of part of the gastrointestinal track is the most common cause of peritonitis.
Sometimes the response to a “leaky gut” is an immediate allergic reaction, or the response may be in the form of other immune diseases such as: asthma, eczema, lupus, Addison’s disease, Grave’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, psoriasis, and psoriatic arthritis.
Overgrowth of Harmful Bacteria.
As previously stated, the health of your immune system is dependent upon the health of your digestive track.
The health of your digestive track is dependent upon the ratio of beneficial bacteria to harmful (pathogenic) bacteria. To have a healthy digestive track, you must have a ratio of at least 85% beneficial bacteria.
Monsanto’s Bt corn has been developed to be Roundup resistant. It is referred to as “Roundup Ready.” Roundup is a herbicide used to kill weeds – it kills weeds but it does not harm the Bt corn. Roundup’s active ingredient is glyphosate. Instead of harming Bt corn, glyphosate is absorbed into the plant.
Research has shown that Roundup is destroying the gut health of both animals and people.
A recently published study in Current Microbiology stated that Monsanto’s Roundup active ingredient, glyphosate, suppressed beneficial bacteria in poultry. Further, while the good or beneficial bacteria died, highly pathogenic bacteria were unaffected by glyphosate.
- The health of your immune system is dependent on the health of your digestive tract.
- Monsanto’s genetically engineered seeds and herbicide, known as Roundup, are destroying gut health and threatening your overall health.
- If you have been diagnosed with cancer, either recently or in the past, you should protect and restore the health of your immune system by avoiding processed foods. Eighty percent (80%) of processed foods in the United States contain genetically modified organisms.
