Drs Gabriel Cousens and Brian Clement-Genetically Engineered Food Linked with Iodine Deficiency and Congenital Birth Defects

Toxic Halogens called “salts” hidden behind the GE non-disclosure veil

by Rabbi Gabriel Cousens, MD, MD(H), Dr. Brian Clement, Nonnie Chrystal and Rudhi Lenardi (POP Campaign)

As pioneers of the vibrant, alive blueprint for health at the Tree of Life Center U.S. and Hippocrates Health Institute, The POP Campaign strives to protect the healthy lifestyle threshold against the tsunami of genetically engineered (GE) food, including genetically modified organisms GMO). Our mission is to truly honor live food the way God/nature intended and to strengthen its fundamental building blocks. A majority of Americans (90%) have for 20 years asked for GE labeling, so that we each can make truly informed food choices. An ever increasing body of science validates consumers’ concerns whether GE foods are truly safe. New information from independent medical researcher, Nonnie Chrystal, has tied genetically engineered food to iodine deficiency and birth defects. These new findings elevate our concerns and spark a groundbreaking dialogue on the toxicity of GE food. At the very least, these findings underscore the importance of labeling GE food so we can better protect ourselves and our children.



According to Nonnie Chrystal, there are hidden ‘inactive’ ingredients sometimes deemed ‘inert’ (i.e. undisclosed) as well as additives in GE foods including toxic halogens called ‘salts.’ We are becoming more aware of halogen displacement and its direct impact on iodine deficiency but have not connected all of the dots regarding genetic engineering until now. Halogens, known as ‘salts,’ are listed in Group VII of the Periodic Table, which include fluorine, chlorine, bromine and iodine. Due to a lower molecular weight, the ubiquitous fluorine/fluoride/fluorate, chlorine/chloride/chlorate and bromine/bromide/bromate found in our air, food and water globally, rapidly displace the heavier, but precious, element of iodine so needed in the body for sustenance of life. Due to competitive inhibition, iodine saturation can restore balance by pushing out the unwanted lower molecular weight halogens such as fluoride, chlorine and bromine. Dr. David Derry, MD, PhD, proposes genome DNA and mitochondria DNA have receptor sites for the thyroid hormone, thyroxine (or T4).1 This drastically elevates the importance of iodine since T4 is comprised of 4 iodine atoms.

In 1954, Drs. Eartly and Leblond suggested the thyroid as the true master gland and not the pituitary.2 This again elevates the extreme significance of iodine. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1998, 72% percent of the global population in 129 countries suffers from iodine deficiency.3 In 2005, the WHO recommended a further increase in iodine for children and pregnant and lactating women.4 According to one major study from 1997 to 2005 done in the U.S. with almost 4,000 people, more than 96% of the American populace is deficient in iodine.5
