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.

New research indicates that the microbial biodiversity of the soil and our food is being dramatically impacted by the use of herbicides like glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller. Researchers have proposed that many soil organisms, which are indispensable for the productivity of the soil in agriculture, as well as in raw and fermented dairy production, may be undergoing endangerment, if not also in some cases extinction in certain geographic regions of the world.
The fight over rbGH (recombinant bovine growth hormone) continues, even under new ownership. After acquiring rbGH from Monsanto, Elanco (part of Eli Lilly) has stepped up efforts to convince milk processors and the wider food industry that milk from rbGH-injected cows is safe.

Despite intense protests from consumer groups and environmentalists, genetically modified organisms, (GMOs) foods have been dubbed as the 'human feeding experiment' and are continuing to be integrated into the food supply. Most of us do not even know the extent of it, as it is not in mainstream news.

New research released ahead of print and published in the journal Archives of Toxicology indicates that Roundup, the most common formulation of glyphosate, which is the largest selling herbicide in the world, is not only more toxic than its constituent ingredients, but is capable of damaging DNA within a human cell line when diluted down to 45,000% lower concentrations than presently used in GMO agriculture applications.
There is an invisible war being waged, right under your nose, on your plate and at the end of your fork. Genetic modification has dramatically transformed not only our food, our biosphere, but also our bodies.

In a disturbing study published last month (Dec. 2011) in the Journal of Toxicology in Vitro, researchers found that Monsanto's popular "weed killer" known as Roundup, which has already been linked to over 25 adverse health effects, is also capable of interfering with and/or harming the male reproductive system.

After enjoying a year of maximum profits, record stock prices, the defeat of a major GMO labeling campaign in California, pro-industry court decisions, and a formidable display of political power in Washington, D.C. – including slipping the controversial Monsanto Protection Act into the Federal Appropriations bill in March - the Biotech Bully from St. Louis now finds itself on the defensive.
