Hairy Teeth & Blue Balls: more reasons to eat Organic

Great.  Just as I’m noticing wayward hairs growing on places on my body where they didn’t when I was younger… and just as I reach the age where I no longer worry much about getting blue balls because of being sexually frustrated, now I discover that I also need to worry about getting hairy teeth and that I actually do need to worry about blue balls after all!

Recent research is now showing how rats that eat diets high in Genetically Modified food sources have tendencies to growing hair on their teeth and having their testes turn blue.

To be fair, the lead scientist says, “It is quite possible that the GMO does not cause these effects by itself.” Surov wants to make the analysis of the feed components a priority, to discover just what is causing the effect and how.

In addition to the GMOs, it could be contaminants, he said, or higher herbicide residues, such as Roundup. There is in fact much higher levels of Roundup on these beans; they’re called “Roundup Ready.” Bacterial genes are forced into their DNA so that the plants can tolerate Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide. Therefore, GM soy always carries the double threat of higher herbicide content, couple with any side effects of genetic engineering.

… another thing to ponder when visiting our families and trying to enjoy Memorial Day cook-outs.
