Notes from the interviews of the Origins Summit
This is not a transcript but cliff notes of the answers from the interviews. The speakers are doctors, nutritionists and specialists in their field of health all practicing functional medicine. These are not your normal diet tips but the possible medical reasons you may be experiencing problems with losing weight and how to fix it. For additional information links to their web pages are included.
Why avoid GMO’s
When people start avoiding GMO’s they get better from first gastrointestinal disorders, then find increased energy and reduced brain fog. After that they begin seeing relief from headaches/migraines, weight problems, skin conditions, allergies, asthma, autoimmune disease, diabetes, autism, high blood pressure, fibromyalgia, depression, compulsive behavior among children, violent behavior, kidney problems, liver problems and it goes on.
GMO’s also cause infertility and accelerated aging. Veterinarians are reporting the same thing.
On a chart you can see the correlation of the introduction of GMO’s and the roundup sprayed on them to the sharp rise in all physical, mental and behavioral diseases.
All linked to GMO/Roundup: death’s from stroke, high blood pressure, alzheimer’s, obesity, intestinal infection, leukemia, inflammatory bowel, peritonitis, HepC, liver failure, autism, diabetes, congenital birth defects, cancers of liver, kidney, uterine track and bladder. That’s most of them.
With GMO crops 80-85% of the roundup chemicals are absorbed and stay in the plant including the soybean or corn kernel. The roundup works like an antibiotic destroying your gut microbiome. Roundup is sprayed on wheat, barley, potatoes, corn, soybeans, rice, berries and citrus. Allowable levels were raised dramatically by the EPA in 2013 because it’s now used as a ripening agent to kill the crops right before harvest, getting stored in the edible portion.
It’s now found in blood, urine, breast milk, air and water samples. It kills beneficial bacteria but not bad one’s like e coli causing an imbalance which creates zonulin = leaky gut = all disease.
Roundup also blocks our mineral absorption of manganese and cobolt needed to create l-tryptophan the precursor to serotonin and melatonin. These are the feel good minerals that tells the body I’m full I can stop eating and regulates insulin. RU also blocks the detox pathway of the liver and an endocrine disruptor causing women to have less estrogen more testosterone, males more estrogen less testosterone.
Linked to tumors, early death, organ damage, cancer, Parkinson’s, non Hodgkin’s lymphoma, multiple sclerosis, reproductive disorders, kidney failure, depression, aggression. All found in peer reviewed studies.
Also blocking pathways to brain – see interview with Dr. Stephanie Center called the darth vader chemical. He referred to her as the expert.
BT toxin is designed to make holes in the insects stomach and die from eating any GMO crop. This was not supposed to effect humans but in 2012 it was proven in France that it does the same to us. Corn in all processed food is BT toxin and found in 80% of cord blood in newborns creating life long problems in the child.
Glyphosate (Roundup) is the missing link getting off GMO’s is the key.
Roundup damages mitochondrial function.
Avoid GMO’s – buy organic – read labels – non GMO shopping guide
9 major GMO crops –
cotton (cotton seed oil)
canola (canola/vegetable oil)
sugar beets (commercial white sugar)
alfalfa (used as animal feed)
papaya from Hawaii
some yellow squash
aspartame (GMO mold)
Organic meat, butter, milk and eggs
GMO feed and BGH (bovine growth hormone) injected in animals is GMO promoting cancer with high concentrations found in milk/dairy.
NO safety testing ever done
