Whilst Monsanto and other Huge Ag and Big Pharma giants have been telling us GMO meals is secure, quoting numerous industry-backed research on the efficacy of their food production by way of biotech science model, the lies they have been telling us are reaching epic proportions. In the meantime, they continue to accuse anti-GM activists of performing the identical.
Take for instance, the allegations of Piero Morandini of the University of Milan, who, way back in 2005, identified that GM maize contained one hundred occasions significantly less fumonisin per kilogram than in standard crops, supposedly far much less than its makers had been telling government agencies. In his findings, GM maize contained much less of this fungal toxin notorious for causing Spina Bifida. These field trials would have been a favorable overview of GM crops. Had been they suppressed?
Fumonisins (FB) are mycotxoins which currently infect corn and other grains in the world, but which are used by biotech businesses to attempt to make crops impervious to pests. The food and agricultural industries already lose millions due to mycotoxins annually, but they have now been bred into our food supply with Bt crops – and Round Up Ready Chemicals.
“Due to the fact FB might have acute and chronic effects, we hypothesize that even in the absence of debilitating acutely toxic amounts of FB in the swine diet program, sustained exposure to little concentrations may possibly negatively have an effect on herd wellness and production efficiency.” (JournalofAnimalScience.org)
The institute which was supposed to conduct unbiased research on the GM maize crop was none other than the government-funded National Institute for Investigation on Food, a component of the National Agriculture and Food Study Organization. This exact same organization is accountable for an anti-GMO report published at EarthOpenSource.org that really clearly explains many problems with GM food.
