We therefore conclude that our data strongly suggests that these GM
maize varieties induce a state of hepatorenal [liver and kidney] toxicity.
This can be due
to the new pesticides (herbicide or insecticide) present specifically
in each type of GM maize, although unintended metabolic effects due
to the mutagenic properties of the GM transformation process cannot
be excluded . All three GM maize varieties contain a distinctly
different pesticide residue associated with their particular GM event
(glyphosate and AMPA in NK 603, modified Cry1Ab in MON 810, modified
Cry3Bb1 in MON 863).
Why should GM foods have this sort of effect?
These substances have never before been an integral part of the human
or animal diet and therefore their health consequences for those who
consume them, especially over long time periods are currently unknown.
Humans generally have centuries of experience with most other foods,
and have rejected or developed appropriate preparation methods for those
that are toxic.
Plus until recently humans weren’t in the habit of eating pesticides
that had been deliberately engineered to be toxic to other species.
Especially without testing first to see if they might be toxic to humans….
We have evaluated the toxicity of four glyphosate (G)-based herbicides in
Roundup (R) formulations, from 105 times dilutions, on three different
human cell types. This dilution level is far below agricultural
recommendations and corresponds to low levels of residues in food or
feed. The formulations have been compared to G alone and with its main
metabolite AMPA or with one known adjuvant of R formulations, POEA. HUVEC
primary neonate umbilical cord vein cells have been tested with 293
embryonic kidney and JEG3 placental cell lines. All R formulations cause
total cell death within 24 h, through an inhibition of the mitochondrial
succinate dehydrogenase activity, and necrosis, by release of cytosolic
adenylate kinase measuring membrane damage.
And it gets even better:
The deleterious effects are not proportional to G concentrations but rather depend on the nature of the adjuvants. AMPA and POEA separately and synergistically damage cell membranes like R but at different concentrations. Their mixtures are generally even more harmful with G. In conclusion, the R adjuvants like POEA change human cell permeability and amplify toxicity induced already by G, through apoptosis and necrosis. The real threshold of G toxicity must take into account the presence of adjuvants but also G metabolism and time-amplified effects or bioaccumulation.
Glysophate makes other chemicals even more toxic, and remember Glysophate
doesn’t break down rapidly and tends to accumulate in organisms.
Organisms such as you and your children.
