New science suggests that the ubiquitous sweetener may interact with environmental factors -- such as exposure to heavy metals and pesticides -- to impact childhood development.
"The study’s argument is complicated but deeply disturbing. It pieces together what’s known about the genetic and metabolic factors involved with autism, including the growing evidence of a link between autism and mercury and organophosphate pesticide exposure."
"Essentially, HFCS can interfere with the body’s uptake of certain dietary minerals — namely zinc. And that, when combined with other mineral deficiencies common among Americans, can cause susceptible individuals to develop autism."
Even Monsanto's own scientists have warned that GM foods cause serious health problems, though Monsanto has tried to bury the evidence.
Monsanto and Dow, the nation's top agrochemical producers, have joined forces to reintroduce the use of the herbicide 2,4-D—one half of the toxic defoliant Agent Orange sprayed by American forces to clear jungle during the Vietnam War. That's because the ubiquitus spraying of Monsantao's herbicide Roundup has created superweeds resistant to Roundup. Now Dow says it has developed a new genetically engineered corn that can tolerate 2,4-D, which will be used to kill the superweeds. However, some European countries and Canadian provinces have banned 2,4-D, a suspected carcinogen that has doubled the rate of birth defects and is toxic to honeybees, birds and fish.
Researchers at the University of Paris and colleagues fed the molecule fullerene (C60 or “buckyballs”) dissolved in olive oil to rats and found it almost doubles their lifespan, with no chronic toxicity.
"The results suggest that the effect of C60, an antioxidant, on lifespan is mainly due to the attenuation of age-associated increases in oxidative stress, according to the researchers."
"Since 1993, countless studies showed that fullerene (C60) and derivatives exhibit paramount potentialities in several fields of biology and medicine, mainly including specific DNA cleavage, imaging, UV and radioprotection, antiviral, antioxidant, and anti-amyloid activities, allergic response and angiogenesis inhibitions, immune stimulating and antitumor effects, enhancing effect on neurite outgrowth, gene delivery, and even hair-growing activity, a summary in the Biomaterials paper stated."
Stress, Inflammation and CancerdailyRxStress goes by many names, but on a cellular level that name is inflammation. A number of biological activities can cause inflammation, so can the stresses of unhealthy lifestyles.
