New Study: GMO Soy Accumulates Cancerous Formaldehyde.


Among other shocking issues. . .

As if there weren’t plenty of reasons already to avoid genetically modified soy and other soy products – now a new study has made eating this GM crop even less appetizing.

As I previously reported for Natural Society, GM soy is toxic to the kidneys, liver, and reproductive system – and that’s not good considering that almost 90 percent of the soy grown in the US is genetically modified.

In a study we recently shared with you, researchers in Egypt who studied rats fed a GM soy diet found that:
  • DNA fragmentation increased significantly after the rats were fed GM soy, and the levels of toxicity increased at 30, 60, and 90 days.
  • Glyphosate-tolerant enzymes were found in the blood, and as researchers pointed out, “There is a growing concern that introducing foreign genes into food plants may have an unexpected and negative impact on human health.”
  • The kidney’s bio-pathology increased. Blood creatinine and uric acid concentrations increased significantly in rats fed the GM diet for 30, 60, or 90 days.
  • Chromosomal aberrations were observed. There was a “highly significant” number of abnormal cells.

Now, a study has just been released by Dr. V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai, Ph.D., an MIT-trained systems biologist, which states that in vitro and in vivo lab tests reveal that a diet of GM soy results in:

“[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.”

This means that all those biotech claims that GM and non-GM soy are essentially the same, are nothing but hogwash.

Dr. Ayyadurai stated:

 “The results demand immediate testing along with rigorous scientific standards to assure such testing is objective and replicable. It’s unbelievable such standards for testing do not already exist. The safety of our food supply demands that science deliver such modern scientific standards for approval of GMOs.”

This is yet another reason to avoid GM soy.

COMMENT FROM THE POSTER:

And so the beat goes on even more.

Soy products of today have had questionable effects on human health, yet no one in industry, and definitely not in “government” have had the temerity to even do the proper research and evaluations of much of the soy products before pushing them as “health foods” in the market. Much of the “natural” soy products are actually filled with toxic residues of the agricultural chemicals used during growing, and the various chemicals used in the processing of raw soy.

More to this point, UNfermented soy and products made from unfermented soy are actually unfit and quite unhealthy for the human body. Many ancient cultures who used soy products for thousands of years fermented it first, as this effectively removes the more toxic principles before consumption. One of these unhealthy substances that naturally occurs in soy belongs in the chemical class of “pseudo-estrogens”. That is, a substance that mimics the effects of estrogen in the body that may cause certain undesireable characteristics to occur in the body. – This from unfermented soy.

Most of the “natural” (as claimed by the manufacturer on the label) soy products like “Silk” (TM), soy-based coffee creamers, and even the DHA that is added to certain baby formulas was extracted and treated with hazardous chemicals like Cyclo-Hexane, and various other petro-chemical-based substances. The resulting residual contaminants can lead to other health problems. Then, many sampled soy products were found to contain trace amounts of Mercury, an dangerous neurotoxic heavy metal that can accumulate in the body!

GMO soy has the added problems in that NONE of the various GMO-agriproducts have been thoroughly tested for actual health effects on the human population. They have all been “Generally Regarded As Safe” by the Food and Drug Administration without any actual hard evidence. Then, there is the problem of “Round-Up Resistant” (TM) crops yielding sufficient contaminating amounts of the dangerous Glyphosate (TM) and its common metabolite AMPA (Amino-Methyl-Phosphoric-Acid). These substances are being discovered in human urine, milk, and body fat samples of virtually the entire populations of the Western World, as well as in populations of many of the countries producing these GMO crops.

Where my Temple takes a stand against GMOs, in general, is when it is all in the misguided thinking, by the biggest pushers and profiteers of the sale of GMOs, that they can “improve upon Nature”. – This hubris in its finest shining colors, and We, the human species, are the unwilling “Guinea Pigs” in this grand experiement of the “refining and redefining of Nature”!

Think it is all to horrible to be true?

Perhaps it is time to do your own investigation, and compare what the pro-GMO crowd says is safe, to what you can reasonably find are the REAL answers.
