Dr. Oz: The GMO-Pesticide Connection

Everyone knows that Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) are controversial. Some people argue vehemently against them, others are completely neutral or apathetic on the subject, and others argue that we’ve been modifying plants and animals for centuries.

The problem here is that GMOs are currently being modified in one key area for farming conglomerates: they’re being made to be able to withstand higher amounts of pesticides. And pesticides are a concern.

Dr. Oz: The Problem with Pesticides

Pesticides have been linked to decreased cognitive function, cancer, and behavioral problems. Pesticides are all the more dangerous in children, whose systems haven’t been fully developed yet and who are the most at risk for developmental problems posed by pesticide use. In fact, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends reducing children’s exposure to pesticides.

Dr. Oz: Are GMOs Harmful?

One of the most common modifications to plants, besides making them more tolerant to higher doses of pesticides, is making them be able to produce their own insecticides. And these are the kinds of foods we’re feeding to our children.

Dr. Oz said in the preview that he’s worried that we’re at the beginning of “a catastrophe”. The preview said that this show will challenge the food industry, the chemical industry, and even the president.

However you feel about GMOs and pesticides, you’ll want to tune into this episode, which gives an overview of the problem and Dr. Oz’s solution to it. Don’t miss Dr. Oz September 22, 2014!
