Once I learned the United Kingdom did not allow for the use of these Genetically Modified Organisms, everything changed.
The first commercially available GMO crop was the tomato around 1994. Since then, GMOs can be found in essentially everything around North America, yet the UK and Europe have almost entirely ignored them.
"GMOs and toxic pesticides" by greanpeace.org mentions, "Because of corporate pressure, millions like us are denied the right to know about where GMOs occur in the food chain..."
Are we being denied this "right" because there are potential concerns about GMO agriculture? The UK and Europe clearly know sommmmmething if they're choosing to ignore them.
But regardless of any source, I have my own subjective experience with them.
I can tell you when GMOs are removed from my diet, magic happens in my Autoimmune-sensitive body. My bloating decreases, my inflammation lowers and my breast size normalizes.
These observations make me more certain, time and time again, that my reintroduction to these genetically engineered foods in 2011 aided in my thyroid deficiency rearing its head.
Take pubescent emotional distress while moving countries and pair it with foods that make, in my case, present thyroid antibodies react, and you have the perfect autoimmune storm.
