I recently reviewed What’s Making Our Children SICK? by Michelle Perro and Vinceanne Adams. Their work shows that it’s the way the food industry combines genetic engineering with pesticides.
Just now, I’ve read about another line of research that more than confirms their findings. Indeed, the same villains are implicated in actually affecting the genes. The human-made toxins we breathe, drink and eat are not merely poisoning us, but also our descendants. Children ingesting poisons now are altering their future children and grandchildren.
Ken Roseboro in EcoWatch reported on the work of Indiana medical scientists, Paul Winchester and Michael Skinner, and their team.
This is a must-read.
I never trust a popularized article about research, but check the scientific report. Having read one of their many studies, I am satisfied that this is genuine, and serious.
This research group have tested a great many environmentally common poisons, including atrazine and glyphosate, the two most frequently used pesticides in the USA. They found that all of these substances have effects on the children and even more on the grandchildren of rats exposed to them during gestation. These effect increase over generations.
This is a new finding, but not a new thing. I suspected it nearly 50 years ago, when my children all developed problems with their secondary teeth. Neither my wife nor I, nor our families, have a history of such things, but our kids have them. Also, my son has a mutation in the way his femur has grown.
I think if you did a minute examination of every person, you would find a wide variety of random mutations in everyone born since the 1950s. Just another way we are killing ourselves.
The issue of Bobbing Around containing the book review I mentioned above starts with a quote from Jane Goodall: How could we have ever believed that it was a good idea to grow our food with poisons?
She was right.
