Genetically Modified Foods & Autism?

So much to read, consider and learn about. Another worth-while read is over at Nourishing Hope.

Genetically Modified Foods Require Immediate Moratorium According to The American Academy Of Environmental Medicine

"May 19, 2009 the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) released a position paper on genetically modified food. In their most recent press release, the AAEM reiterates "there is more than a casual association between GM foods and adverse health effects" and that "GM foods pose a serious health risk in the areas of toxicology, allergy and immune function, reproductive health, and metabolic, physiologic and genetic health."

This is an important topic for all humans and particularly those most vulnerable to allergy, immune, and digestive assaults, such as children with autism.

The most common genetically modified foods to avoid and/or only eat organically are: corn, soy, canola and cottonseed. This means avoiding anything made from these "foods" including their oils."
