Formaldehyde Found in GMO Soybeans

Class-one Carcinogen in Our Food

Researchers from the International Center for Integrative Systems, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, have determined that genetically modified (GM/GMO) soybean plants accumulate the carcinogen formaldehyde.

The researchers utilized a scientific method called CytoSolve to analyze 6,497 diverse laboratory studies conducted by 184 scientific institutions in 23 countries worldwide. The study data showed that GMO soybeans significantly accumulate formaldehyde, a class-one carcinogen.

The research also found that genetic modification forces a depletion of glutathione among the plants, which weakens their immune system. This contrasts with the proposals put forth by the GM industry that GMO soybean plants are stronger, allowing them to endure environmental hardships better than non-GMO soybean plants. READ MORE.
