In the last few years several laboratory studies have been published showing the incredible harm Glyphosate treated GMO Soy that produces a pesticide Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) does to the organ systems of mammals.
A recent study published in the Turkish Journal of Biology entitled Biological impact of feeding rats with a genetically modified-based diet, shows GMO soy doing tremendous damage to several organ systems of the rats after just 30 days. According to the study, GMOs “caused a wide range of toxic effects, including DNA damage, abnormal sperm, blood changes, and damage to liver, kidney, and testes.”
The researchers concluded, “there are health hazards linked to the ingestion of diets containing genetically modified components”.
Another 2014 study pointed out that fragments of the GMO crops became incorporated into the blood, liver and brain tissues, the implications of this are yet unknown.
Bt was shown to cause hematotoxicity or blood poisoning when given to mice in a 2013 study.
Corn is more studied than soy due to it being the most common GMO crop.
One 2008 long term study shows the more GMO corn fed to mice, the smaller their offspring would be.
A study from 2002 found female rats whose bedding was made of GMO corn didn’t want to mate and began developing cancer in their breast cells. The same study found that male rats developed cancer in their prostate cells.
One 2009 study discovered that hamsters that were fed GMO for three generation started growing hair inside their mouths. “This pathology may be exacerbated by elements of the food that are absent in natural food, such as genetically modified (GM) ingredients (GM soybean or maize meal) or contaminants (pesticides, mycotoxins, heavy metals, etc.). Probably, hair growth in the gingival pouches is a protective reaction of the body suppressing the progress of gingival pathology, because the hair bundles are so dense that they prevent food from getting into the pouches and the resultant inevitable inflammation.”
Glyphosate is sold under the trademark name Roundup. It was originally developed as a water softener, meaning it is good at removing minerals. Several major crops have been genetically modified to withstand the herbicide. Since its introduction, farmers have had to apply more and more of the herbicide over the years as some weeds have developed resistance.
Stephanie Seneff, PhD, is a research scientist at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). According to her research, Glyphosate is responsible for the dramatic increase in rates of autism. She believes 50 percent of children will be born autistic by 2025.
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced in December 2014 that half of food tested had detectable levels of pesticides.
