Celiac Disease is Caused by GMO Consumption
Genetically modified crops now account for 174 million hectares worldwide, primarily in the US. A new peer-reviewed study published in the Journal of Interdisciplinary Toxicology has established a link of causality between GMO consumption and Celiac disease.
The study conclusively states,
Gluten intolerance is a growing epidemic in the U.S. and, increasingly, worldwide. All of the known biological effects of glyphosate — cytochrome P450 inhibition, disruption of synthesis of aromatic amino acids, chelation of transition metals, and antibacterial action — contribute to the pathology of celiac disease.
According to the researchers, 5% of North Americans and Europeans currently have Celiac disease with future trends projected to escalate.
Gluten-Free is America’s 5th Largest Food Trend
According to a new report by the Nation Restaurant Association in which 1,300 professional chefs belonging to the American Culinary Federation were interviewed about the biggest food trends for 2015, gluten-free will be the 5th largest trend moving forward.
If you were hoping the gluten-free craze was burning out, sorry to disappoint. Gluten-free cuisine was a top-five trend identified in the National Restaurant Association’s “What’s Hot in 2014” survey, identified by more than three-quarters of chefs as a niche they planned to do more with next year. Don’t just think packaged goods or gluten-free brownies, either. You’ll see the desire to avoid wheat gluten drive more use of pasta noodles made from buckwheat and other grains. Also, expect more ancient, super-nutritious grains such as quinoa and amaranth to pop up in dishes that might once have used wheat flour.
The Gluten-Free Agency website reports that the gluten-free trend has now surpassed the low-carb trend and could eventually surpass lactose/dairy-free or even sugar-free. The gluten-free market is somewhere near $2 billion annually in the US.
Because the biotech industry has given life to Dr. Frankenstein’s monster, tens of millions of people are now forced to avoid glutinous products which are predominantly sold in health food stores. According to Manta, a website tracking small businesses in the US, the website roughly estimates that there are 21,807 health food stores in the country, all of which could ironically benefit from the sales of GMO products causing adverse health effects in consumers.
The Triad Thesis
The Triad Thesis, often misattributed to George Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, but more accurately cited as Immanuel Kant’s work, discusses that every thesis (proposition) elicits an antithesis (reaction to the proposition). This is analogous to Newton’s Third Law of Physics in which every action has an equal and opposite reaction.
By tampering with the genome of the organisms we eat, the food we eat tampers with the genomes of our bodies.
Kant’s philosophy is concluded with the synthesis, or the resolution of the thesis and antithesis, thusly creating a new truth, or thesis, ending one cycle and starting another.
In The Philosophy of Immanuel Kant, Alfred Webre summarizes,
The analysis of the faculty of knowledge has outlined the boundaries between sensibility and the intellect (sensibility receives the impressions, co-ordinates them, and makes intuitions of them; the intellect synthesizes the intuitions, i.e., judges and reasons). We discriminated, in sensibility, between a poseriori intuitions and the a priori intuitions of space and time; in the understanding we discovered a number of a priori concepts, which are so many compartments, as it were, in which reason stores and elaborates the products of experience. But though containing many elements, the faculty of knowledge is, nevertheless, a unity. This essential unity of reason in the diversity of its operations is the ego, the feeling or apperception of which accompanies all intellectual phenomena, and constitutes their common bond, so to speak. Kant is not satisfied with a mere analysis; not only does he take apart the knowledge-machine, as we might say, he also attempts to explain how it works, as to show how the parts fit into each other. He, therefore, imagines the categories of limitation, reciprocity or concurrence, and reality, as connecting links between affirmation and negation, substantiality and causality, possibility and necessity: fictions which gave rise to the triads of Fichte and Hegel (thesis, antithesis, and synthesis).
Thesis is established as the genetic interference at the hand of man; Anithesis is established as the rise in prominence of gluten intolerance. Therefore, the question of synthesis is left open. It can be concluded by extrapolating current market trends that the biotech industry will create problems that lead to its own demise and solidifying organics and non-GMO as dietary truisms.
Biotech Industry is Fulfilling Taoist Principle
In A Daoist Philosophy Peter Myers writes,
To follow the dao (path) of life is to go with the natural flow of life and to avoid going against it. The ethical theories of Taoism lean toward passive resistance, believing that evil, by definition, will ultimately destroy even itself without undue interference.
Therefore, the Tao expounds that every evil has within it the seeds of its own destruction. How apropos a saying for Monsanto, the company that was voted Most Evil Corporation on Earth?
This connection becomes almost laughable once you add to it the fact that Monsanto has created “terminator seeds,” or GURT (genetic use restriction technology), which are self-destructing organisms and cannot survive beyond one generation.
With a minor tweak, this aphorism becomes “every evil company has within it the genetically modified seeds of its own destruction.”
English author Neil Gaiman, in his book Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch, he comments on evil,
You see, evil always contains the seeds of its own destruction. It is ultimately negative, and therefore encompasses its downfall even at its moments of apparent triumph. No matter how grandiose, how well-planned, how apparently foolproof of an evil plan, the inherent sinfulness will by definition rebound upon its instigators. No matter how apparently successful it may seem upon the way, at the end it will wreck itself. It will founder upon the rocks of iniquity and sink headfirst to vanish without trace into the seas of oblivion.
