Institute for Responsible Technology – Health Risks

GM soy and allergic reactions

  • Soy allergies skyrocketed by 50% in the UK, soon after GM soy was introduced.
  • A skin prick allergy test shows that some people react to GM soy, but not to wild natural soy.
  • Cooked GM soy contains as much as 7-times the amount of a known soy allergen.
  • GM soy also contains a new unexpected allergen, not found in wild natural soy.

Institute for Responsible Technology – Health Risks.

It was “supposed” to be harmless to humans and animals—the perfect weed killer. Now a groundbreaking article just published in the journal Entropy points to Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, and more specifically its active ingredient glyphosate, as devastating—possibly “the most important factor in the development of multiple chronic diseases and conditions that have become prevalent in Westernized societies.”

That’s right. The herbicide sprayed on most of the world’s genetically engineered crops—and which gets soaked into the food portion—is now linked to “autism … gastrointestinal issues such as inflammatory bowel disease, chronic diarrhea, colitis and Crohn’s disease, obesity, cardiovascular disease, depression, cancer, cachexia, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and ALS, among others.”

  1. One of the things I’ve learned as a scientist is, whenever possible, if an issue is as important as this one, it is worth reading the original research. The allegations by the Institute for Responsible Technology are either terrifying or created by people who already know the answers and so don’t need to be distracted by the facts. I have the terrible feeling that in this case, the Institute reflects the assessments of legitimate, unbiased science.

    I am going to contact someone with whom I am acquainted who is a leading academic in the field and ask him if my — and no doubt your — fears are well-founded.

    Thank you for posting this.

  2. This country is brimming over with apathy. A report like this will hopefull make people think about what they eat and ask themselves is it safe! I agree this site does not overly exaggerate the topic, unlike many others, and will get them ‘googling’ for more facts. Animal welfare and crop yields have always been a continuous process since man first put plough to soil. However GM experiments are a step too far. Europe continues to make valiant efforts to stop adulterated food reaching our shores from America. Long may “Frankenstein food” to quote from one source, never become the norm!
