Analysis Finds Monsanto's GM Corn Nutritionally Dead, Highly Toxic

For related articles and more information, please visit OCA's Genetic Engineering page and our Millions Against Monsanto page.

Is GMO corn nutritionally equivalent to non-GMO corn? Monsanto will tell you the answer is a big 'yes', but the real answer is absolutely not. And the simple reality is that they are continuing to get away with their blatant misinformation. In fact, a 2012 nutritional analysis of genetically modified corn found that not only is GM corn lacking in vitamins and nutrients when compared to non-GM corn, but the genetic creation also poses numerous health risks due to extreme toxicity.

With the recent passing of the Monsanto Protection Act, there is no question that mega corporations like Monsanto are able to wield enough power to even surpass that of the United States government. The new legislation provides Monsanto with a legal safeguard against federal courts striking down any pending review of dangerous GM crops. It is ironic to see the passing of such a bill in the face of continuous releases of GMO dangers.
