On a 1 – 10 list, below are reasons “9 & 10″ why you should require Genetically Modified Food be labeled as such (GMO), and why you should NOT eat conventional agricultural produce and processed foods:
#9 In the only human feeding study ever published on GMOs, Monsanto’s GMO “RoundUp Ready” soybeans were found to transfer Monsanto’s “RoundUp Ready” DNA to the bacteria living inside human intestines. (What percent of soybeans in U.S. are Genetically Modified and grown with pesticides and chemicals? Here’s the reference I found: The United States (85%) and Argentina (98%) produce almost exclusively GM soybeans. In these countries, GM soybeans are approved without restrictions and are treated just like conventional soybeans.)
#10 According to Jeffrey Smith of the Institute for Responsible Technology, the transfer of Monsanto’s GMO Bt DNA to human digestive bacteria could create a “living pesticide factory” that could be responsible for the “increase in gastrointestinal problems, autoimmune diseases, food allergies, and childhood learning disorders – since 1996 when Bt crops came on the market.”
