Are genetically modified plants harmful for humans?

    In some people, consumption of genetically modified food can result in the development of allergic reactions but aside from that there have no conclusive studies that suggest it is detrimental to human health.

    Yes ,Yes and Yes! Gmo foods are harmful to humans.

    Look up the word “Salvestrols”. Salvestrols are phytochemicals produced by plants to protect them from the diseases which may plague them. ie. mould, mildew, fungii.

    Found on the surface of leaves and fruit skins, salvestrols are only produced by plants when they need it. Plants “protected” artificially by pesticides produce far lower quantities than naturally grown produce. Why is this significant?  Salvestrols, a class of anti-oxidant, are cancer fighters.

    As you will find the more you look into the subject of salvestrols, cancer cells produce an enzyme not found in healthy cells. These enzymes like salvesrols, bond with these phytochemicals, and takes them back into the cancer cell, where they are metabolised. These natural compounds ultimately either greatly retard the growth of or completely kill the cancer cell. 

    So here’s the answer: Genetically modifying fruits and vegetables changes the composition of, or completely deletes production of these specific cancer fighting phytochemicals.  Furthermore, many GMO plants were supposedly created to “resist” pests, thereby reducing the need for pesticides. The grim reality is that most GMO crops are actually less resistant and more reliant on pesticides, further depleteing salvestrol production in these plants. You tell me, do you want to eat Frankenstein or “cyborg food”?
