Dr. Nancy Swanson, PhD What if the consumption of GMO crops or animals eating GMO crops were related to rapid rise of these chronic diseases ?
Nancy Swanson PhD See disease epidemiology correlations belowDr. Nancy Swanson graduated from Western Washington University with a B.S. degree in Agrophysics and math in 1986. She received her Ph.D. in Agrophysics from The Florida State Univ. She then worked as a staff scientist for the United States Navy. Upon returning to Washington, Nancy taught Agrophysics at WWU. She holds five U.S. patents. She is the author of over 30 scientific publications and two books on women in science. She is currently retired and grows flowers. Nancy took many important chronic disease states showing either the incidence or deaths over time. She showed with a green line on the graph how fast the disease would have normally increased at the rate prior to 1996 when the first GMO crops were planted. What if the consumption of GMO crops or animals eating GMO crops were related to the rapid rise of these chronic diseases ? Hypertension (High Blood Pressure), Obesity, Diabetes, Neurological disorders) – Autism, Alzheimers, Parkinsonism, Senile Dementia, Auti-Immune disorders: Rheumatoid Arthritis, Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Ulcerative Colitis & Crohn’s Disease ), Irritable Bowel Syndrome Certain cancers – Thyroid, and Liver cancer. Dr. Swanson then took the percentage of GMO corn and soy crops planted and the amount of Glyphosate (active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup) applied to corn and soy and plotted their RAPID EXPONENTIAL rise over time, and overlapped this data of # of GMO crops planted with the rise of chronic disease states. The consumption of GMO crops or consumption of animals consuming GMO crops were correlated with incidence of or deaths due to organ diseases, cancers, and neurological diseases.
All of the correlations were greater than 90%, with autism and senile dementia at 99%. Intestinal diseases were correlated with the number of acres of Bt corn planted. Again, the correlations are all approximately 95%. By looking at the green lines you can see the expected increase in the different diseases (based on the rise prior to 1996 when GMOs were rapidly introduced). For all of the intestinal and immune disease data Dr. Swanson went through
all of the CDC hospital discharge records for each year searching for ICD 714.0 & 720. The files are here:
http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nhds/nhds_tables.htm#detailed ICD code for rheumatoid arthritis is 714.0 & 720 So far, Dr Swanson has looked at: Hypertension (High Blood Pressure), Obesity, Diabetes, Neurological disorders) – Autism, Alzheimers, Parkinsonism, Senile Dementia, Auti-Immune disorders: Rheumatoid Arthritis, Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Ulcerative Colitis & Crohn’s Disease ), Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Certain cancers – Thyroid, and Liver cancer
Is the consumption of GMO crops the cause of the explosion in chronic diseases over the last 20 years?
Her data is not proof but sure appears this way and needs immediate study.

http://www.examiner.com/article/gmos-are-prevalent-the-u-s-food-supply ******************************************************************************* 90% of any food containing ingredients: Soy, Corn , Sugar (not labeled cane sugar), or Canola (or vegetable oil )
has been sprayed with Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide and or has a built in pesticide in every cell (Bt toxin).
Virtually all animals (chickens, cows, beef etc.) that are not ORGANIC – eat GMO feed Bt corn was genetically engineered to create holes in the insects stomachs killing them. Two of the biggest concerns we have in clinical medicine that lead to many chronic diseases is called intestinal permeability (leaky gut) as well as auto-immune disorders. Here what happens – we ingest foods, vitamins and supplements, and then some of these “particles” go though the stomach and intestines, “passing though” the stomach / intestinal wall into the body cavity and then get filtered back into the blood stream. Our blood has not ever seen these particles and recognizes it as “foreign” and tries to protect us by creating an allergic and auto-immune response .
This is partly how chronic inflammation starts. 85% of chronic disease is based on Chronic Inflammation – – many cancers, heart disease & strokes, hypertension, intestinal conditions, diabetes, allergies, arthritis, Parkinsonism Altzheimer’s, autism, auto-immune disorders, kidney disorders,
and many more diseases.
