The Truth Behind GMO



Causes and Cure of a GMO Versus Non-GMO Diet

I have on board celebrity author and filmmaker Jeffrey Smith who is an advocate for promoting healthier non-GMO choices in our diet.

Today is also a special episode because not only did we reach a million downloads, but it is also my late mother’s birthday. She would have turned 70 years old today, so I’m dedicating this episode to her.

Began As Curious Outsider

Smith was a chronic do-gooder and looking for ways to improve things. Through the years, he was into marketing, communications, education, and strategy.

In 1996, Smith went to a lecture by a scientist who was a genetic engineer, and he was quite alarmed. Furthermore, it was because he knew something was about to become a health disaster and environmental catastrophe.

Monsanto Company A company called Monsanto was about to plant seeds throughout the Midwest using genetically engineered techniques that this engineer knew. Furthermore, the engineer was aware that it was not safe.

Once you release these seeds, the plants would cross-pollinate, and the seeds would blow in the wind. In addition to that, we would be contaminating the gene pool without a way to decontaminate it.

Getting Involved

Smith realized this scientist needs help in spreading this topic. Since the lecture was full of scientific jargon, Smith though that there is a way of converting it into layman’s terms and spread the word to more people.

Smith started to interview that scientist and other scientists, and he has been doing that for 21 years—translating science to English.

Soon after, Smith ended up working for a GMO detection laboratory where he was paid to become more expert on the subject.

Seeds Of Deception

Then he wrote the book “Seeds of Deception.” It became the world’s bestselling book on GMOs in 2003 and is still a bestselling book.

As a strategist, Smith was trying to figure out ways to stop the folly. Nobody was talking about the health dangers, so that’s why he wrote the book.

And he wanted to show the corruption that allowed it in the market. So what Smith did, he extracted stories from GMO whistleblowers.

Learning About GMO

When I first heard about GMO in the 90s, I knew something was not right even if I was a teenager then. I watched a documentary years ago on GMO, it was very similar to a mafia manipulating the market.

Percy Schmeiser is a farmer whose case went up to the Canadian Supreme Court. Consequently, someone testified against him in court and lied about him purchasing Monsanto seeds which he never did.

Things To Watch Out For

It turned out that person accepted a bribe of $20,000 worth of chemicals from Monsanto for lying. Apparently, he was clearing his conscience because he had liver cancer and died soon after.

Smith says that in the United States, most dairies have Bandit but will say it around the carton. Consequently, it will either say no rbST (recombinant Bovine Somatotrophin), no rBGH (recombinant bovine growth hormone), or no artificial hormones.

Furthermore, if it doesn’t say those things, you can check on their website. Bovine growth hormone is known as “crack for cows,” injected into cows, revs up their metabolic hormones. It causes huge damage on the health and lifespan of cows.

In cow’s milk, there is growth hormones and IGF-1 which linked to cancer. IGF-1 promotes cell growth, replication, more pus and more anti-biotic resistant bacteria.

Your Milk On Drugs

Smith has an 18-minute film called “Your Milk On Drugs—Just Say No,”  and it was a movie that Monsanto company did not want to spread to the public.

The film includes interviews with fired whistleblowers about the FDA, manipulated research, and political collusion, as well as footages prepared for a FOX TV station which eventually canceled after a letter from Monsanto’s attorney,  threatened consequences.

Amazing Effects of A Non-GMO Diet

Smith started speaking at medical conferences since 1996. Doctors began prescribing non-GMO diets. The American Academy of Environmental Medicine did their evaluation of GMO and said every doctor should prescribe non-GMO diets due to reproductive problems, organ damage, accelerated aging, digestive issues among others.

Smith then went around interviewing doctors, and he was shocked. They all told him inflammation and allergies are caused by GMO.

One doctor Smith talked to calculated that she put at least 5,000 patients on a non-GMO diet and they all got better. He was able to interview some of the patients. The recovery was amazingly fast.

“It’s tricky finding food products that are GMO-free because it is not properly labeled in the United States,” said Smith. “So everyone has to create some strategy which would involve other potential confounding factors that could also be leading to the same results.”

Smith was also interviewing farmers who took their pigs and cows onto non-GMO feed, and they were getting the same results. The animals had more energy; their digestive health was better, no more birth defects, higher litter size, higher conception rate and 69% to 75% less use of medicines and antibiotics in pig farms.

Smith started in 2012 after Genetic Roulette the movie came out. So many people started switching to a non-GMO diet.

“People would say the number one problem they had before they switched to a non-GMO diet was gastro-intestinal problems,” Smith revealed. “Brain fog, fibromyalgia, autism, anxiety, depression, immune problems were also common health issues. After switching to non-GMO, they found it easier to lose weight.”

Effects of A Non-GMO Diet On Children

Smith adds that children were very responsive to a non-GMO diet. Recovery was between one day to a month.  Their behavior was better.

“The non-GMO and organic diet will not cure every disease. It will not cure every autistic child,” clarifies Smith. “A doctor in my film said autism is curable, but it depends on what spectrum it is and sometimes it’s just diet that can do it, sometimes it’s not.”

Genetic Engineering

Genetic engineering is where in a laboratory, you either insert foreign genes into the DNA of a crop for a particular purpose, or you rearrange the genes within the DNA.

The process of genetic engineering causes massive collateral damage in the DNA. You can change the level of gene expression up to 5% of the functioning genes.

They recently found that in one of Monsanto’s corn variety that there were a hundred different proteins and metabolites that were distinct in the genetically engineered variety compared to the natural variety of the same type and two compounds.

“Two compounds increased in the Monsanto corn was putrescine and cadaverine. They are responsible for the odor of rotting dead bodies. These are linked to increased allergic reactions and cancer,” said Smith.

The main reason why they genetically engineered crops are to allow those crops sprayed with herbicide. So Monsanto sells roundup herbicide and roundup ready seeds.

These herbicide-tolerant crops are 80% of all GMOs planted in the world. It gets absorbed into the crops and the food portion of the crop, and you can’t wash it off. People think soaking vegetables is the solution but the chemical is actually inside the vegetables.

Relation to Glyphosate

Glyphosate is what Monsanto patented and put it as the basis for the roundup. Glyphosate was originally patented to clean boilers and pipes, as an antibiotic, as an herbicide and it’s not the only poison in the roundup.

“There are a lot more elements that are 10,000 times more toxic. And as a whole, roundup can be 125 times more toxic than glyphosate alone,” Smith shares. “But glyphosate has been tested and showed to be a probable carcinogen receptor.”

For listeners who want to learn more about roundup glyphosate and health implications, please go back and listen to episode 89 of the Learn True Health podcast with Dr. Stephanie Seneff. Roundup and GMOs go hand in hand.

Tested And Proven

Smith explains that when you look at what is the impact of genetically-modified roundup soy, you don’t know if it’s the soy or round-up residue. So when they tested it in Italy, they found damage to the testes, pancreas, liver and accelerated aging.

He also said that in Russia, an unpublished study found by the third generation of hamsters, most of the hamsters were sterile. There was a four to five times increase rate in infant mortality and birth defects.

So we have a situation where we don’t know whether it’s the round-up which does link to reproductive disorders and whether it’s the GMO.

Roundup Glyphosate

One group in France did a very wise experiment, where they fed rats either roundup ready corn that has been sprayed with roundup, roundup ready corn that has not been sprayed with roundup, or roundup without the corn.

And they found out all three groups had massive tumors, premature death, and organ damage. So it was both the genetic engineering process and the roundup individually and together, which were linked to these very serious disorders including a much higher death rate.

In 2004, in the Nature Biotechnology Journal, they demonstrated that if you inserted genes as they did into soy, the part of the gene transferred into the DNA integrated into the DNA of bacteria living inside our intestines.

“They were not able to determine whether transferred gene continued to function, producing genetically modified proteins from the bacteria,” said Smith. “But if it did, and it might, it means that 24/7 our gut bacteria could be producing genetically engineered proteins.”

If that’s the case with Bt corn, it might turn or intestinal floor into living pesticide factories, and that might explain why 93% of the pregnant women in Canada tested have the Bt toxin because they may have been producing it inside their intestines.

Secret Ingredients Movie

Smith’s movie highlights the story of Kathleen and her family as they rebuild their health after eliminating GMOs and pesticides from their diet.

It also includes experts and scientists who can explain why and how GMOs may be making us sick. The film also shares testimonials from other families that have gotten better, as well as doctors who have seen their patients heal after eliminating GMOs.

“We have enough information to make confident decisions. My bottom line suggestion aside from getting involved is trying to switch to 100% organic for a few weeks or a month,” advises Smith. “Keep a journal and write all your moods, your daily meals, and symptoms. See what happens in your life. That could be the information that you need to become completely confident that this is the way you want to live your life.”

He also advises to keep a journal and write all your moods, your daily meals, and symptoms. See what happens in your life.

That could be the information that you need to become completely confident that this is the way you want to live your life.
