A new study shatters the myth of GMO safety. From
Food Democracy Now!
In the first of its kind systems biology approach, scientists at the International Center for Integrative Systems analyzed more than 6,497 lab experiments to discover an alarming accumulation of formaldehyde, a known carcinogen, and a dramatic depletion of glutathione, a key antioxidant necessary for proper detoxification of cells and maintain a healthy immune systems in plants, animals and humans.
These findings shatter the myth that GMOs are “substantially equivalent” to traditionally bred non-GMO crops and show for the first time that significant damage is done at the cellular level to foods that have been genetically engineered through the process of transgenic insertion of foreign genes. These results mandate an immediate ban on new GMO crops and a serious evaluation of current scientific safety standards relating to GMO food.
is the first systems biology analysis of its kind and is an outcome of three previous scientific papers, published in AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES and THE AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PLANT SCIENCES.
PEER-REVIEWED PAPER SUGGESTS GENETICALLY ENGINEERED SOY (GMO) PRODUCES
EXCESS FORMALDEHYDE AND DISRUPTS NATURAL PLANT METABOLISM
A new study published in the peer-reviewed journal AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES applies modern computational systems biology methods to reveal genetically engineered soy (the GMO) creates significant disruption to the levels of formaldehyde, a known carcinogen, and glutathione, an important anti-oxidant necessary for cellular detoxification.
Right now Congress is getting ready to cut a deal with Monsanto to try to kill GMO labeling and common sense regulations on new GMO foods.
Help end Monsanto’s corruption of science, democracy and our food supply! Every voice counts! Send letter to President Obama, Members of Congress and FDA Right Here!
Thanks Bernie for fighting for GMO labeling and against Monsanto!
NOTE: There's lots of controversy in the comments. Common sense says best to label products until controversy is definitely settled.
If GMO's are so safe, why is Monsanto fighting labeling so strongly?
