GMO Soy Accumulates Formaldehyde & Disrupts Plant Metabolism, Suggests Peer-Reviewed Study

GMO soybeans

When the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) wrongfully declared GMOs “substantially equivalent” to non-GMO foods, the agency set the table for decades of corruption. Corruption of our food supply. Corruption of our health. Corruption of our Democracy.

Now, along comes a new study, published in the peer-reviewed Agricultural Sciences, that says GMO crops, or at least GMO soy crops, are absolutely not substantially equivalent to non-GMO soy crops.

From a press release:

The study, led by Dr. V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai, Ph.D., an MIT-trained systems biologist, utilizes his latest invention, CytoSolve, a 21st century systems biology method to integrate 6,497 in vitro and in vivolaboratory experiments, from 184 scientific institutions, across 23 countries, to discover the accumulation of formaldehyde, a known carcinogen, and a dramatic depletion of glutathione, an anti-oxidant necessary for cellular detoxification, in GMO soy, indicating that formaldehyde and glutathione are likely critical criteria for distinguishing the GMO from its non-GMO counterpart.

More than 90 percent of all U.S. soy crops are GMO. Soy is commonly found in a long list of foods.

The biotech industry was founded on bad science and great public relations. For the most thorough history of how Monsanto has corrupted our food and our government, read Steven Druker’s, Altered Genes, Twisted Truth: How the Venture to Genetically Engineer Our Food Has Subverted Science, Corrupted Government and Systematically Deceived the Public.
