As Monsanto Asserts GMO's are Safe, GE Toxin Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) is Found in Blood of Pregnant Women and Baby's Cordblood. How to Stay Safe

 As Monsanto Asserts GMO's are Safe, GE Toxin Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) is Found in Blood of Pregnant Women and Baby's Cordblood
Thinking that my little Hayden-Jay was born with GE toxins makes me angry

As Monsanto asserts that GM crops are safe, a new study by independent Canadian doctors, heightens concern. Genetically modified crops include genes extracted from the bacterial toxin Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) to make them resistant to pest attacks.  These genes make crops toxic to pests but Monsanto claims that they to pose no danger to the environment and human health.  The study points in a different direction.
"All this time, Monsanto has based its assertion that crops engineered to contain the bacterial toxin, Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt), are harmless on an assumption that the toxin breaks down in the digestive system and so never enters the rest of the body. Regulators have been repeating this to us for over a generation. Now it turns out that the Bt toxin is not only surviving in our guts, but is making its way on into our bloodstreams — and if we’re pregnant, into the soon-to-be-babies in our bellies." -Marcia Ishii-Eiteman, PAN America
So how can you stay safe and keep your unborn baby safe?  Because GMO's are in so much of our food supply, and none of it has to be labeled (yet), the best thing you can do, is to eat organic as much as possible. It is as simple as that.
