The interesting thing about GERD is that it seems to involve a
disfunction of the enteric nervous system. That and the fact that
it is on a dramatic increase in just the last few years.

Most pesticides are in effect neurotoxins, and we know from cell
research that the human immune system will react to manmade
chemicals, chemicals that did not previously exist in nature. Since
everyone is different, it is reasonable to assume that suceptible
members of the population will have negative reactions to new
substances in the enviroment, I would think particularly if taken

The increase in new cases points to a change, what that change is,
is the question.

My point other than a personnal example is that any bad effects
caused by a GMO might not be immediately recognized, they could be
more gradual.

Do have to watch the chocolate though.... ;)
