I am interested to know about existing research on the effect of GMO's in the American food chain-- including Nutrasweet.- on diabetes.
I appreciated this TED talk about diabetes. I sought medical help for many years,not understanding why I could not lose weight, When I was finally diagnosed with diabetes, I discovered it was indeed a disease of blame. When my blood sugar levels became uncontrollable, a physician told me I was undoubtedly eating candy bars. I was not.
As I have done my own research on genetically modified food products, I have wondered if the" diabetic epidemic" can be linked on a timeline with the introduction of GMO's into the American food chain. I have sworn off Nutrasweet and artificial sweeteners, but have not had the happy effects experienced by another woman who immediately lost 90 pounds after doing the same. The unlabeled presence of genetically modified food products in the American food chain continues because the federal government and lobbying US corporations are dedicated to their promotion and potential for profit. There is a great bulk of information available online which points to conspiracy by biotech corporations and US government agencies to cover-up any research which demonstrates negative health effects associated with GMO's in the environment or in the food chain.
It would be impossible, in this short commentary, to cover all of the objections to GMO's by international agencies or other nations across the globe, but I would welcome knowing if anyone has specifically linked obesity and diabetes to the introduction of these unnatural products.
