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

Analysis Finds Monsanto’s GM Corn Nutritionally Dead, Highly Toxic | Nano Foods and Packaging Debate | Scoop.it

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.

 

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.

You can consider the contents of the report yourself:

Since when does organic corn have less than 3% organic matter, and only 60 ppm Carbon? Bet that corn tastes like... dirt.

Not to mention that Cation Exchange Capacity, ERGS, Brix, and Base Saturation are all tests performed on soil.

You are right to say that the report confuses content in-the-soil with content in-the-plant.

Still, I will let this article stand with the clarifying comments, because even if the analysis does not show the differences of nutrient content in the plant, it shows with great clarity how the soil we grow our plants on is ruined by the continuous application of substances such as glyphosate.

It's not like the soil doesn't matter. Glyphosate is a chelating agent and it does wreak havoc with minerals. We do need more research to show the actual content in the grain and the differences.

Glyphosate may be FDA approved. That doesn't mean for a lot of people that they want it in their foods though.

Indeed, I support people's right to chose what they get in their foods. My only opposition to GMO labeling is this sort of anti-science argument.

The theory that glyphosate "does wreak havoc with minerals" via chelation is not supported by, for example, this study:

It seems not to cause noticeable problems for Roundup Ready corn. If it did, the corn wouldn't be very Roundup Ready, now, would it?
