Recent research shows that genetically engineered (GE) soy contains high levels of glyphosate along with a poorer nutritional profile, leading the researchers to conclude that GE soy is NOT “substantially equivalent” to non-GE soy
On average, GE soy contained 11.9 parts per million (ppm) of glyphosate. The highest residue level found was 20.1 ppm. No residues of either kind were found in the conventional non-GE and organic varieties
Processed foods undoubtedly expose you to this toxic contamination, courtesy of the GE soy and vegetable oil, GE high fructose corn syrup, and/or GE sugar beets used
Compared to conventionally-grown non-GE and GE soy, organic soybeans contained higher levels of protein and zinc, and lower levels of omega-6
Argentina has become one of the largest producers of GE soy and corn, and along with it, the country has experienced an explosion of miscarriages, fertility problems, and abnormal fetal development
So what does this mean?
If You Eat Processed Food, You’re Eating Glyphosate..
While nearly one billion pounds of glyphosate is doused on both conventional and GE crops worldwide each year, GE crops receive the heaviest amounts. It’s important to realize that processed foods undoubtedly expose you to this toxic contamination, courtesy of the soy and vegetable oil used.
It’s quite crucial to understand that glyphosate contamination is systemic, meaning it is present in every cell of the plant, from root to tip. It’s not just an issue of topical contamination, as with many other agricultural chemicals sprayed on crops.
Normally, you need to thoroughly wash your produce to remove topical residues, but you simply cannot remove glyphosate from your produce. And neither can food and animal feed manufacturers who use GE ingredients in their products.
Birth Malformation Skyrocketing in Agricultural Centers of Argentina.
As noted in the featured BBC radio report14 above, Argentina has become one of the world’s largest producers and exporters of GE soy and corn, and along with it, the country has experienced an explosion of miscarriages, fertility problems, and abnormal fetal development. In the province of Chaco, birth defects have quadrupled in the decade following the introduction of GE crops.
