Cloned Meat
Slowly, God Is Leading His People Back To The Original Diet
Never have scientists seen what is now before the general public, a mass of newly created products that were not in the beginning when God created the earth, and the resulting increase in new diseases not known thirty years ago.
With the FDA approval of clone meat in 2008 (not known to the general public), and with 94% of the soybeans and 84% of the corn genetically modified for more than twenty years, not to mention with over 70% of all foods in packages, cans, and bottles filled with man-made hidden MSG, artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives on most grocery shelves, the choices for a safe and healthy eating experience is greatly compromised.
Humans were created from the dust of the earth; therefore, our bodies respond to like earthly substances for the maintenance of good health and longevity. New research shows that when we eat we're consuming more than just vitamins and protein. Our bodies are absorbing information, or microRNA. Chinese researchers have found small pieces of rice ribonucleic acid (RNA) in the blood and organs of humans who eat rice. The Nanjing Universitybased team showed that this genetic material will bind to receptors in human liver cells and influence the uptake of cholesterol from the blood.
The type of RNA in question is called microRNA (abbreviated to miRNA) due to its small size. MiRNAs have been studied extensively since their discovery ten years ago, and have been implicated as players in several human diseases including cancer, Alzheimer's, and diabetes. They usually function by turning down or shutting down certain genes. The Chinese research provides the first in vivo example of ingested plant miRNA surviving digestion and influencing human cell function in this way.
Here are the fears of true scientists, those who really care about the health and safety of human beings: Unlike safety evaluations for drugs, there are no human clinical trials of GM foods. The only published human feeding experiment revealed that the genetic material inserted into GM soy transfers into bacteria living inside our intestines and continues to function. This means that long after we stop eating GM foods, we may still have their GM proteins produced continuously inside us. This could mean:
• If the antibiotic gene inserted into most GM crops were to transfer, it could create super diseases, resistant to antibiotics
• If the gene that creates Bt-toxin in GM corn were to transfer, it might turn our intestinal bacteria into living pesticide factories.
The bottom line is that our food choices are now much narrower than just a few years ago.
