HEALTH RISKS OF GMO SOY – THEY AREN’T THE SAME. SO WHY DOES OUR GOV’T CONTINUE TO ALLOW THEM?

Genetically modified soybean is made by genetic engineering techniques. According to the latest research, it accumulates  formaldehyde which is a chemical carcinogen. Research published in the peer reviewed journal of Agricultural Sciences stated that genetically modified soy, greatly affects  the ability of the plant to deal with the stress. An MIT trained biologist Dr. V. A. Shiva utilizes “Cytosolve”, a computational systems biology method to integrate the experimental results of 184 scientific institutions. It reveals the drastic accumulation of formaldehyde and the depletion of glutathione. Glutathione is an antioxidant which plays an important role in the prevention of free radical accumulation. Free radicals damage the cellular components and disrupt the normal physiology of the cell. The GMO can be considered safe for human consumption if it follows the basic principle of “substantial equivalence”. It means that the GMO should be “substantially equivalent” to its non-GMO counterpart. If we take formaldehyde and glutathione as a criteria for the assessment, then GMOs  are not equivalent to its non-GMO counterpart,  which means they are not safe for human consumption. – See more at: http://www.datsyn.com/press-release/3631/2015/07/30/HEALTH-RISKS-OF-GMO-SOY-THEY-ARENT-THE-SAME-SO-WHY-DOES-OUR-GOVT-CONTINUE-TO-ALLOW-THEM#sthash.wYXpxCf9.dpuf
