Doctor Says Genetically Modified Wheat a Perfect, Chronic Poison

Doctor Says Genetically Modified Wheat a Perfect, Chronic Poison

Wednesday, December 5, 2012 11:35

Many of us are shunning wheat for lots of reasons, but we usually cite gluten as the culprit. Cardiologist and author Dr. William Davis, however, says it’s not gluten that makes modern wheat a “perfect, chronic poison.” It’s the fact that genetically modified wheat has become the wheat we know today.

Davis spoke on “CBS This Morning” earlier this year about one of agribusiness’s biggest creations—the word “creation” not used lightly.
Genetically Modified Wheat – Increased Appetite, Altered Genome

“[Modern wheat is] an 18-inch tall plant created by genetic research in the ‘60s and ‘70s This thing has many new features nobody told you about, such as there’s a new protein in this thing called gliadin. It’s not gluten. I’m not addressing people with gluten sensitivities and celiac disease. I’m talking about everybody else because everybody else is susceptible to the gliadin protein that is an opiate. This thing binds into the opiate receptors in your brain and in most people stimulates appetite, such that we consume 440 more calories per day, 365 days per year.”

Increasing hankerings and padding on pounds aren’t all genetically modified wheat is capable of doing. A new GM wheat in development by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CIRO), an Australian governmental research agency, may permanently alter the genes of the humans and animals that consume it.

“Through ingestion,” says Professor Jack Heinemann of the University of Canterbury Centre for Integrated Research in Biosafety, “these olecules can enter human beings and potentially silence our genes.” The double stranded RNAs present in this genetically modified wheat would also survive cooking, digestion, and generations of life.

But what about all the hype over whole grains? Several health resources like the Mayo Clinic advocate ditching white wheat for less processed varieties, but Davis claims that is like replacing unfiltered with filtered cigarettes.GM Whole Grains Like Filtered Cigarettes

“That’s the logic of nutrition; it’s a deeply flawed logic.”

Instead of genetically modified wheat, Davis advocates eating “real foods” like avocados, olives, olive oil, eats, and vegetables. While Davis does tell consumers to favor food least likely to be changed by agribusiness, the CBS source, unfortunately, does not directly address variables like organic and small-scale farming versus conventionally raised and pesticide-drenched vegetables or pasture-raised versus factory-farmed meats.
GM Not the Answer to Feeding the Nation

Genetically modified foods pose a threat to people (not just consumers), animals, and the planet Pesticides for GM corn pollute our water and often contaminate organic products. Although the issue of feeding the world is a complex and emotional one, GM food—and the poisoning of entire populations of people—is not the answer.

If I am not mistaken, this is terribly misleading. I do not believe there are any GMO Wheat varieties available anywhere.

It's all GMO, unless you get it straight from the farmer.

So now you include hybrid plants and crossbred hogs and cattle as GMO? The neighbors mongrel dog and 99% of all the housecats in the world would then be GMO pets.

It was approved in Australia, and it will be here soon.

More BS GMO scare tactics huh?

This is of course a bunch of horseshit... They didn't even bother with any type of peer review process, which is required for any types of claims such as these. Especially regarding something as important as food safety. But that's not the intent of sadly incorrect articles such as this. The intent here is to throw out a "report", which has not been reviewed by anyone for truth, and have it spread like fire because people fear what they don't understand and forward it to the inbox of all their other equally ignorant friends.

There's nothing wrong with GMO food. We've been eating it for decades. GMO crops are among the most extensively tested and regulated food products ever developed. We've been through nearly 3 decades of GMO production and consumption, all the while being strictly tested and regulated by multiple government, academic, and industry organizations. And we've yet to have one single instance of any harm to health due to GMO food.

Here's a response to this silly article:

Quote:
GM wheat claims unsubstantiated

GENE technology experts have shot down allegations Genetically Modified (GM) wheat may cause a strain of liver damage that especially endangers the lives of young children.

The Safe Food Foundation (SFF) claimed GM wheat could cause Glycogen Storage Disease IV, resulting in an enlarged liver, cirrhosis of the liver and failure to thrive, but the CSIRO said none of those claims had been published in a peer-reviewed journal.

However, the CSIRO said the claims would be considered “in the context of all other relevant research in this area”.

Dean of Melbourne University’s School of Land and Environment Professor Rick Roush said the claims were made by three anti-GM campaigners who have “deliberately bypassed independent scientific assessment of their claims”.

“Instead, this has been launched such that it will become another scientific-sounding scare story in cyberspace, a well worn path of anti-GM so-called ‘science’ by press release,” he said.


Agricultural gene technology expert Paula Fitzgerald said the SFF media statement was a “disgrace”.

“To suggest that CSIRO's research, or any other GM research is deadly, is completely irresponsible, particularly when after 15 years of GM crops, there is absolutely no evidence anywhere in the world to suggest they have caused any harm,” she said.

“In addition such claims, designed only to grab hysterical headlines, demonstrate a complete lack of understanding of the regulatory system underpinning scientific research and specifically GM crops.”

SFF director Scott Kinnear welcomed the CSIRO’s statement as a balanced response to the concerns raised by the SFF.

He called on CSIRO to immediately release all details of its safety testing on GM wheat for urgent independent scientific review and immediately release the precise DNA sequences involved so that independent scientists could conduct further urgent checking.
If CSIRO was serious about these claims, they would release the details of its testing, right? If this were really a "Perfect Chronic Poison" being introduced to our food supply, they'd share all their info as soon as possible so action could be taken to prevent death, right? But they haven't, and they won't, because it's nothing but a BS scare tactic.

There was a whole book written on a similiar concept called Wheat Belly. Here is a link to the blog:

It is in an interesting theory...however I love bread and pizza too much to ever seriously apply it.

Yep, wheat is bad for you (at least as a daily part of diet), whether it's GM or not.

Yes....but I suspect the reason for the rise in gluten intolerance or wheat allergies has to do with how it's been altered.

I don't know about that, but I do know that wheat is and always has been a crappy food source.

Hmm. I've always considered it a health food, but avoided it because it tasted like shit.
