Birth Defects maybe caused by GM Crops and Roundup Herbicide


I know SOY is in just about all processed foods and also many pharmaceuticals and vitamins these days – it is hard to avoid it. But are you aware that in Argentina they are studying the effects of GM Soy and the herbicide made by Monsanto – very closely, and finding dire results.

The herbicide used on genetically modified soy – Argentina’s main crop – could cause brain, intestinal and heart defects in fetuses, according to the results of a scientific investigation released Monday.

The doses of herbicide used in the study “were much lower than the levels used in the fumigations,” and so the situation “is much more serious” than the study suggests because “glyphosate does not degrade,” Carrasco warned.

I do all I can to avoid non fermented soy, and have done for years because of the lack of evidence of the safety of GM crops. Are you aware that:

Genetically modified (GM) soy accounts for 91 percent of soybeans planted in the US and is rapidly growing throughout the world …… link  and also here

The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) urges doctors to prescribe non-GMO diets for all patients. They cite animal studies showing organ damage, gastrointestinal and immune system disorders, accelerated aging, and infertility. Human studies show how genetically modified (GM) food can leave material behind inside us, possibly causing long-term problems. Genes inserted into GM soy, for example, can transfer into the DNA of bacteria living inside us, and that the toxic insecticide produced by GM corn was found in the blood of pregnant women and their unborn fetuses.

Numerous health problems increased after GMOs were introduced in 1996. The percentage of Americans with three or more chronic illnesses jumped from 7% to 13% in just 9 years; food allergies skyrocketed, and disorders such as autism, reproductive disorders, digestive problems, and others are on the rise. Although there is not sufficient research to confirm that GMOs are a contributing factor, doctors groups such as the AAEM tell us not to wait before we start protecting ourselves, and especially our children who are most at risk.

If you are truly interested in taking control of what you ingest and becoming healthy again, may I suggest you follow this link (and others in today’s blog) to learn as much as you can. There are many definite reasons to avoid GMO’s.

    That is a very alarming, but not surprising report from Argentina. I’m convinced that companies such as Monsanto & Cargill are destroying the world food supply & should be charged with crimes against humanity.

    Maybe Maybe Maybe the sky will fall. But GM corn with insect resistance definately prevents birth defects caused by fungi that grows in the damage caused by the insect pests. Thes fungi produce mycotoxins which cause nasty birth defects, and GM corn reduces these toxins.
