Genetically modified foods, glyphosate and Immunity
Disclaimer: This is an opinion piece on a controversial topic as the science is too muddy for a clear picture. There is no clear answer to this debate! I have no dog in this fight other than human health and disease avoidance. The question has to be asked and answered. However, the individuals behind the science are often full of corporate bias making the determination of truth very troublesome.
I have long worried about the transition from all natural food to the modern pesticide laden genetically modified variety. Parsing through the research on safety is immensely difficult as the variables that need to be accounted for are numerous and most of the troubling research is only translational from animal models. Most of the negative (i.e. safe) data is industry funded causing major bias points to exist. Thus, we remain in the dark as to true risk and safety.
