Health Guide: GMO Research

This section is dedicated to making the public more aware of the adverse health and environmental consequences of recombinant DNA technologies when applied to food production.

Our database contains two relevant sections on genetically modified foods: 1) research "nodes," which include the problematic action "genetically modified organisms," as well as keyword sections such as "gmo's and horizontal gene transfer," all of which consist of bundled abstracts of studies from peer-reviewed and published scientific journals (NLM sourced). 2) Opinion articles written about the research contained with the first section described.

The goal of our research project is to index, organize and disseminate the often under-reported and/or minimized research on the unintended and adverse effects of genetic modification.

Key: CK(#) = Cumulative Knowledge, a measure of evidence quality or strength  AC(#) = Article Count, the number of articles that have accumulated on the topic thus far.

GMO farming practices heavily dependent upon glyphosate herbicide formulations such as Roundup have serious, unintended adverse effects on human and environmental health. New research indicates glyphosate does not break down rapidly, as the manufacturer claimed, but is accumulating in the groundwater -the source for most of the world's drinking water.

Two studies published in the past six months reveal a disturbing finding: glyphosate-based herbicide formulations such as Roundup® suppress the growth of beneficial gut bacteria and lead to the overgrowth of harmful ones.
You might ask, "why all the fuss about agricultural genetically modified organisms (GMOs)?" After all, regulatory agencies have approved these technologies for widespread application and consumption, so they must be safe, right? Well, the truth is that there is no agency and no industry that works to protect our health. At best, the EPA, USDA, and FDA attempt to respond to our disease after the cause is widespread.

Agribusiness is in a mad rush to take over the earth, and seems willing to stop at nothing. Coming soon is cabbage with scorpion poison engineered in every cell. Of course, they claim it’s safe and will result in less pesticide use, but history and logic say otherwise. Who will wake from the insane mating between Agribiz and GMOs?
