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. Incredibly, at the same time, a groundbreaking new study released this week reveals that genetic engineering significantly disrupts basic cellular functions in GMO plants at an alarming level.
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.
