Q: Is it true that there is now food out there that has been genetically modified with human DNA? ………………..Scared to Eat
A: Wow it’s scary. According to Natural News, there is indeed a company in Junction City, Kansas, that has used human liver DNA to modify rice to create a protein used in drugs. In 2006 the company –Ventria Bioscience– got FDA approval to grow the rice outdoors on 3200 acres in Kansas. I can only imagine the impact when nature takes its course and the genetically modified rice begins to infiltrate other crops. It also makes me wonder what else is in the drugs people are so willing to take.
Speaking of rice, there are some things to watch there as well. The FDA has been monitoring the arsenic level in many foods for the last twenty years including rice. In September 2012 Consumer Reports reported that many of the rice products they tested had significantly high levels of inorganic arsenic. A complete listing is available on line at ConsumerReports.com.
