List of GMO-free Foods & allergies and genetically modified food
There's a rise in allergies with GMO (genetically modified foods). I became allergic to my favorite food (tofu & soy milk). My sister developed a severe allergy to sesame seeds. Both are staples in our native country.
The link below explains how genetically modified (GM) foods give rise to food-allergies: http://www.organicconsumers.org/articles/article_5296.cfm
"Levels of one known soy allergen, trypsin inhibitor, were up to 27% higher in raw GM soy. In addition, although cooking soybeans normally reduces the amount of this protein, the trypsin inhibitor in GM varieties appears to be more heat resistant. Levels in cooked GM soy were nearly as high as those found in raw soy, and up to seven times higher when compared to cooked non-GM soy.
Another study verified that GM soybeans contain a unique, unexpected protein, not found in non-GM soy controls. Moreover, scientist tested the protein and determined that it reacted with the antibody called IgE. This antibody in human blood plays a key role in a large proportion of allergic reactions, including those that involve life-threatening anaphylactic shock."
