Epidemic of Kidney Disease from GMO Food

Severe, acute kidney injuries have doubled over the last decade and continue to rise by 10 percent a year according to a hot new study out of the University of California, San Francisco. Raymond K. Hsu, MD, a UCSF nephrologist who led the research said “That was a staggering revelation of how increasingly common and how life-threatening acute kidney injury has become over the past decade in the United States.” Of course, doctors are clueless and cannot account for the rise in acute kidney injury.

Meanwhile, the latest word from the American Society of Nephrology says that the total number of deaths associated with dialysis-requiring acute kidney injuries rose from 18,000 in 2000 to nearly 39,000 in 2009 – that’s more than double in a decade. When you look at all the studies that are coming out showing kidney failure and injuries in study animals after 90 days on GMO foods, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out “why.”…

A new study released by the International Journal of Biological Sciences (IJBS), which analyzed the effects of GMO foods on mammalian health, found that Monsanto’s GM corn is linked to organ damage in rats. The study concluded: “Effects were mostly concentrated in kidney and liver function, the two major diet detoxification organs… some effects on heart, adrenal, spleen and blood cells were also frequently noted… We therefore conclude that our data strongly suggests that these GM maize varieties induce a state of hepatorenal toxicity….These substances have never before been an integral part of the human or animal diet and therefore their health consequences for those who consume them, especially over long time periods are currently unknown.”

Interestingly, this was a 90-day study that showed once-again, the damaging effects of GMO foods. The mammals used were rats that live about two years. These rats were fed GMO foods for 90 days and then compared to rats fed a non-GMO diet. 90 days of a rat’s life equates to the human equivalent of roughly 10 years of life – putting us on the threshold of cataclysmic health disaster. …

I’ve had two cats and a dog die from kidney disease in the last 2 years.  Looking at the ingredients in my dog and cat foods, I found corn and soy to be at the top of the list.  But in the USA, the vast majority of these crops are now GMO.  I’ve had two other cats who suffered some kind of allergic reaction that was diagnosed as a form of lupus.  One died.  The other recovered after switching her to normal (meat based) cat food.
