How Healthy Is Genetically Modified Soybean Oil?

revealed-why-gm-food-is-so-hard-to-sell-to-a-wary-public-1024w

Soybean oil accounts for more than 90 percent of all the seed oil production in the United States. Genetically modified (GM) soybean oil, made from seeds of GM soybean plants, was recently introduced into the food supply on the premise that it is healthier than conventional soybean oil. But is that premise true? Just barely, […]

Genetically Engineered Soybeans Given To Goats Altered Milk and Stunted Offspring

Pregnant goats fed with genetically engineered (GE) soybeans have offspring who grow more slowly and are shorter, according to a new Italian study. Publishing in the journal of Small Ruminant Research, the researchers were testing the results of supplementing the feed of female goats with Roundup Ready GE soybeans. Roundup Ready soybeans are engineered to […]

Monsanto’s Glyphosate Now Most Heavily Used Weed-Killer In History

monsantos-glyphosate-now-most-heavily-used-weed-killer-in-history-1024w

Monsanto’s signature herbicide glyphosate, first marketed as “Roundup,” is now the most widely and heavily applied weed-killer in the history of chemical agriculture in both the U.S. and globally, according to a landmark report published in the journal, Environmental Sciences Europe. A paper published Feb. 2, 2016 in the peer-reviewed journal Environmental Sciences Europe reports that […]

X-rays reveal uptake of nanoparticles by soybean crops

Metals contained in nanoparticles can enter into the food chain. Scientists have, for the first time, traced the nanoparticles taken up from the soil by crop plants and analysed the chemical states of their metallic elements. Zinc was shown to dissolve and accumulate throughout the plants, whereas the element cerium did not dissolve into plant […]

Genetically engineered crops, glyphosate and the deterioration of health in the United States of America

ge-crops-health-deterioration

Is rising glyphosate use responsible for increases in modern diseases? Claire Robinson looks at the latest study to raise the question Is the rise in glyphosate use since the advent of GM crops responsible for the rapid deterioration of health in the US in the last 20 years? A new study by former US Navy […]

Even Organic Honey Is Contaminated with Monsanto’s Roundup Glyphosate

Researchers from Abraxis LLC and Boston University have further confirmed that the world’s most used herbicide – glyphosate – is widespread in food products around the globe. The researchers tested honey, pancake and corn syrup, soy sauce, soy milk and tofu purchased in the Philadelphia, US metropolitan area. Samples of honey (sixty nine), pancake and […]

Documented effects of glyphosate and its pathways to modern diseases

documented-effects-of-glyphosate-and-its-pathways-to-modern-diseases

Documented effects of glyphosate and its ability to induce disease, show that glyphosate is the “textbook example” of exogenous semiotic entropy: the disruption of homeostasis by environmental toxins. Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup®, is the most popular herbicide used worldwide. The industry asserts it is minimally toxic to humans, but here we argue otherwise. […]

GMO Soy Accumulates Formaldehyde & Disrupts Plant Metabolism, Suggests Peer-Reviewed Study

A new study published today in the peer-reviewed journal AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES reveals genetic engineering of soy disrupts the plant’s natural ability to control stress, and invalidates the FDA’s current regulatory framework of “substantial equivalence” used for approval of genetically engineered food (GMOs). The study, led by Dr. V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai, Ph.D., an MIT-trained systems biologist, […]

Synthetic Vegan Cheese from Human DNA Strands Coming Soon?

A San Francisco based, synthetic biohacker group has made hundreds of headlines for creating cheese without the use of cows. Young biohackerspace people from BioCurious and CounterCultureLabs make up the group. They beat out 243 other groups to take first place at this year’s iGEM “jamboree” competition. iGEM stands for international genetically engineered machine. The winner’s […]

Reasons To Avoid Genetically Modified Foods

reasons-to-avoid-genetically-modified-foods-1024w

Genetically modified foods have been shown to cause harm to humans, animals, and the environment. Despite growing opposition, more and more foods continue to be genetically altered. Here are reasons to avoid GMO foods. When was the last time you thought about how food was made, where it came from, whether and if it was […]
