They are already walking among us
‘According to the original DailyMail article, Jacques Cohen, a former employee at the Institute for Reproductive Medicine & Science of Saint Barnabas in New Jersey, came up with a way to blend the genes of multiple mothers into a single egg that can then be fertilized with sperm from a male. The end product is a child with a genetic blueprint from three different parents, a process of human manipulation known as “germline” alteration.

‘This unscrupulous discovery, which only further taints the natural order of life with man-made genetic modifications, reportedly led to the development of at least 15 GM babies at that time, which are presumably still alive and now progressing through their adolescent years. And according to the original report, any children born to these GM individuals will also bear these modified GM traits, as they are inherently passed down from generation to generation…’

The Worst Foods You are Eating
‘Most of us don’t eat as well as we should, but we should at least be trying to cut back on junk foods that ruin our diets and expand our waistlines. Check out 10 of the worst foods you can possibly eat and avoid them like the plague!

‘The potato is an amazing plant that has served to feed people for hundreds of years, but it becomes one of the worst things you can eat once it’s fried. Anything fried in vegetable oil is extremely bad for your health because it contains polyunsaturated fats that produce cancerous free radicals in the body. Fried potato products also are likely to contain a cancer-causing chemical called acrylamide. So aside from the obviously high levels of fat in fries, eating them could also give you cancer!…’

Herb Won’t Spawn Near Routers
This probably proves that routers are radioactive
School experiment discovers garden cress won’t germinate near a router

‘A group of 5 girls have carried out a science experiment at Hjallerup School in North Jutland, Denmark that saw garden cress seeds placed in 12 tubs and split into two batches. Both batches were placed in different rooms that remained the same temperature, and were given the same amount of water and sunlight over the course of 12 days.

‘You’d expect both batches of 6 tubs to grow equally well, but one set didn’t even germinate. The reason? They were placed next to two routers. Although it’s unclear exactly why this happened, it is thought that the radiation produced by the routers is what stopped the seeds germinating…’

Good Fats You Should Eat
‘Let’s face it: Too many of us eat too much fat, and when we do, it’s usually the bad kind, not the good. What are good fats? We’re talking monounsaturated or polyunsaturated fats and omega-3 fatty acids, and research demonstrates moderate consumption of these fats confer a number of health benefits. Yes, a little fat can go a long, long way, for better or worse; let’s learn more about the healthy variety and why they’re so important for your health…’
