Rise of inflammatory diseases and rise of GMOs

Inflammatory diseases include arthritis, asthma, allergies, Crohn's disease, food intolerance, and diabetes. There is a theory that as more GMO crops are eaten, inflammatory disease increases, especially among children. Causation between GMOs and inflammatory disease isn't clear but there is some correlation.

  • 43% of children in the US have a chronic disease, 52% when you include obesity. (GMO Science, Dec 2015.)
  • Between 1985 and 2004, diabetes in Philadelphia children increased 29%. (Lipman, 2013.)
  • Between 1991 and 2002, Crohn's disease in children more than doubled. (Malaty, 2010.)
  • Between 1993 and 2000, the age of diagnosis of asthma in children has fallen. (Radhakrishnan, 2014.)
  • ADHD, autism, and neurodevelopmental problems are rising. (GMO Science, Dec 2015). 
  • A 2010 study found that, by studying blood saved since 1974, the incidence of Celiac Disease doubled about every 15 years. (Tack, 2010.)
Cleary, more study needs to be done.

Full article is free. 1.059 million children records from years 1993 to 2000 were examined. Result: age of first asthma diagnosis is decreasing in this time period.

Prevalence and association of asthma and allergic sensitization with dietary factors in schoolchildren: data from the french six cities study. BMC Public Health. 201515:993. Link accessed Mar 31, 2016. Results: "Diet is associated with wheeze, asthma and allergic sensitization but not with BHR in children. These results provide further evidence that adherence to a healthy diet including fruits, meat and fish seems to have a protective effect on asthma and allergy in childhood." (Notice how they exclude vegetables, which are the majority of GMO crops in the US.)
