HIGHLY POTENT NEWS THAT MIGHT CHANGE YOUR VIEWS

RNA In GM Rice Can Now Be Seen In Your Blood And Organs

It’s not earth-shattering news:  genetically modified foods carry huge risks for humans.  The newest information, however, shows that there are larger risks than ever before seen.  These risks affect us on a much deeper level than previously thought.

Researchers at the Nanjing University in China have shown that small pieces of ribonucleic acid (RNA) of rice can be seen in the organs and blood of the humans that eat the rice.  The RNA is actually microRNA (miRNA).  It is incredibly small, but plays a role in such diseases as Alzheimer’s, Cancer and Diabetes.  MiRNA usually works to turn off or down the effects of certain genes.   The Chinese researchers found the rice miRNA binding to receptors in the liver.  The miRNA then affect how the body takes cholesterol from the blood.

A tiny change may not seem all that important, but it can greatly change things for the owner of that RNA.  Before you think it’s too small to make an impact, remember the African warning, “If you think it is too small to make a difference, spend the night with a mosquito.”  Genetically altered miRNA may be that buzzing mosquito.

Imagine yourself watching a high school football game.  Suddenly a professional football player is substituted onto the field.  The professional player is the miRNA.  He’s only a small part of the game.  He might only be on the defensive line, but that game will be forever changed by his presence.  Certainly the outcome will be different than if he wasn’t there.

The Chinese study didn’t focus on GM foods, but it’s not hard to imagine the implication there.   Monsanto, a leading proponent of GMO foods, finds no need for alarm.  In fact, they state the following on their site, “There is no need for, or value in testing the safety of GM foods in humans.”

Monsanto took that point of view from the understanding of genetics in 1960.  It doesn’t address miRNA.  This is because Monsanto is following the “Central Dogma” of genetics, which states that there is a one way chain of command between the DNA and the cells controlled by that DNA.
