Jeffrey Smith and Tom Malterre, discuss genetically modified food, gluten, and their connection with leaky gut syndrome, which has a devastating, cascading impact upon the human immune system. The cascade occurs because genetic changes in food crops, animal feed, and in meat, damage the structure of food in ways that make it impossible for our bodies to respond correctly to them.
At best, this means that genetically modified foods are devoid of good nutrition. At worst, there is growing evidence that genetic mutations in food are likely to cause genetic changes in people, the impact of which will only be fully understood long after the damage to human DNA is irreversible.
Jeffrey Smith is the author of Seeds Of Deception and Genetic Roulette. He is the executive director of The Institute for Responsible Technology. Tom Malterre is a clinical nutritionist and co-author of, The Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook.
