(NaturalNews) When talking about the safety of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), scientists working for the biotech industry often tout phony science while broadcasting industry spin. This industry spin is often backed by fundamentally incoherent safety tests that are used to hoodwink entire countries into compliance. Entire regulatory commissions can be duped by biotech doublespeak that's backed by manipulative, fraudalent GMO "safety" results.

In 2003, a Japanese research team led by Masaharu Kawata reported that they had uncovered a volume of Monsanto "safety studies" used to manipulate the Japanese Health and Welfare Ministry into accepting hybrid soybeans.

These papers, the Safety Assessment Application Documents, were used as a manipulative tool to import Roundup Ready soybeans into Japan. These documents, kept at the Food Safety Association, were not to be photocopied or photographed and were only to be viewed up to five hours a day. When Kawata's research team of 40 people went in to investigate, they examined Monsanto's compiled "safety" data and hand-copied it over a span of 10 days. In their evaluation of the documents, Kawata and his team found several disturbing loopholes forged by Monsanto.

Kawata claims Monsanto intended to confuse Japanese health officials with the documents. The papers claimed that genetically modified soybeans are "substantially equivalent" to the non-GMO crop. Kawata claims that Monsanto made propaganda-like claims, twisting research and ignoring obvious data that shows distinct differences between regular soybeans and GM 40-3-2 hybrid strains.

Even after heat treatment, GM soybeans contain enzymes which can cause kidney stones and liver problems

Here's how Monsanto propagandists twisted safety test results to make their hybrids appear "substantially equivalent" to regular soybeans:

A safety test conducted at Texas A and M, highlighted in the Safety Assessment application documents, showed both soybean strains undergoing heat tests at 108 degrees Celsius for 30 minutes. After the toasting, protein and potassium levels were similar in both the conventional and hybrid seeds.

The difference was measured in the urease and lectin levels of both seeds. Urease enzymes play an important role in the conversion of urea to ammonia and carbonic acid, so the abundance of these enzymes is harmful to the human body, causing kidney stones and liver problems. The genetically modified soybeans possessed high concentrations of urease enzymes even after being toasted. Regular soybeans did not contain urease after heat treatment.

In addition, genetically modified soybeans contained higher levels of lectin. In humans, lectin binds to carbohydrates, ultimately causing intestinal problems.

The natural soybean had significantly lower levels of lectin and urease which were rendered inactive after being toasted.

Monsanto manipulates the study to make GM soybeans appear "substantially equivalent" to non GMOs

When Monsanto headquarters got the results of their GM soybean having these dangerous qualities, they were displeased and ordered the transgenic seed to be returned to Texas A and M for further heat treatments. After reheating the hybrids two more times, they were finally denatured, since the urease enzymes could not withstand repeated heat.

When Monsanto got the results they were looking for, they deemed the hybrid seed "substantially equivalent" to normal soybeans and felt that they had the lab results to prove it.

Sadly, these tactics were just one set of botched test results used by Monsanto to push their hybrid seeds into the Japanese market.

Monsanto substitutes GM protein with E coli protein in rat safety tests

Further investigation found out more about Monsanto's misuse of the term "equivalent."

In tests looking for acute toxicity, the protein CP4EPSPS was tested on rats. Instead of taking the protein from the hybrid soybean, Monsanto obtained the protein from E. coli harboring plasma. Of course, this practice is seen as "equivalent" in Monsanto's eyes.

But as researcher Kawata reports, "This is unacceptable because there is a possibility that the inserted gene work differently in soybean than was in the original bacterium, and therefore the expression product may be different from that of soybean."

Kawata says the problem could be resolved if the soybean's amino acid sequence "had been analyzed and confirmed equal as the bacterium." He said that the experiment presumed that the hybrid soybeans are the same as normal soybeans "as long as the CP4EPSPS is not toxic."

"The core of this problem is whether the soybean gene gets affected from insertion of foreign gene or not. The series of experiments described is incoherent on the fundamentals [emphasis added]." Kawata said.
