Glyphosate, GM soy increase risk of infertility and death


(NaturalNews) Some people – in fact, most people – do not even understand what GMO means. To many, all they know about the genetic modification of organisms and food is that somehow science has "advanced" in the agriculture sector. They believe that maybe we need that to help with food shortages, or killing weeds and bugs, so that farms will be able to produce enough food to "feed the world," or something to that effect.

The truth is, genetically modified crops grow from seeds that have pesticide genes inserted in them, so that the plant itself grows bug-killer and weed-killer inside of it. Many of these crops are sprayed with the same pesticides of which their genetic makeup is comprised, adding to the overall toxicity for the humans that consume them. Glyphosate, a main component of the most popular herbicides on the planet, has been proven by scientists in laboratories to increase the risk of infertility, and for many animals, to cause an early death.

Recent study reveals glyphosate residues in 'Roundup Ready' soybeans 'permitted,' yet still toxic to people and animals

An investigation into the consumption of toxic herbicide-resistant soybeans (feed) called Roundup Ready, were found to increase mortality, reduce growth and fertility in certain life-cycle parts, delay reproduction, and reduce total number of offspring (residue levels at just 40mg/kg). These normally occurring levels of glyphosate have negative biological effects, and the potential health consequences, according to researchers, should be further researched – and that goes for livestock animals and humans.

Chemical residue in GM soy causes health detriment

Herbicide tolerant plants contain chemical residues of the toxic and "probably carcinogenic" herbicide ingredient glyphosate. The manufacturers publish their own flawed studies saying it's safe and tested, but just because levels are below "regulatory limits" doesn't mean they are safe for consumption. You see, glyphosate is not the only issue with Roundup. According to top notch scientists who studied long term effects on animals, the glyphosate herbicide formulations are FAR MORE TOXIC than glyphosate alone. This study is based on 30 years of research, and is published in the Journal of Biological Physics and Chemistry, by the way. However, the research done by the manufacturers of these toxic herbicides separates the toxins and tests them individually, so that they can deem them safe and meet FDA or EPA regulations. Alternatively, they just pay off the regulatory agencies to raise the "acceptable" limits for human consumption, which compounds the health detriment.

2015 Whistleblower Award goes to renowned French scientist Professor Gilles-Eric Seralini

The Federation of German Scientists recently honored Professor Seralini, recognizing his profound and intense research demonstrating the toxic effects of Roundup herbicide on rats when administered at a low, environmentally relevant dose, over a long period of time.

After the research was published, vicious character attacks came from Biotech shills who invest in chemical agriculture, as well as cancer's multi-billion dollar sick care industry. They even tried to retract the paper, but it was still published in peer review journals, after several tribulations and biotech temper tantrums. Even the UK Science Media Centre tried to attack Seralini and his top notch research, as they led a smear campaign that retracted the first publishing of the findings in a peer review journal. Prof. Seralini and his expert team fought back, countering the scientific arguments raised against their research, and their paper was republished in another journal.

Seralini's long-term toxicity study is iconic, precedent-setting and highly informative for the humans on planet earth who choose NOT to consume known carcinogens, thus preventing cancer, diabetes, heart disease, CNS disorders, dementia and Alzheimer's disease.

The carcinogenic potential of Roundup was confirmed in 2015 when the World Health Organization's cancer agency IARC published its verdict that glyphosate herbicides are "probable" human carcinogens.
