…advances in genetic engineering promise the expression of multiple Cry toxins in Bt-plants, known as gene pyramiding. Therefore, studies on non-target species are requirements of international protocols to verify the adverse effects of these toxins, ensuring human and environmental biosafety.
Due to its growing use in agricultural activities, Bt presence has already been detected in different environmental compartments such as soil and water. Consequently, the bioavailability of Cry proteins has increased, and for biosafety reasons their adverse effects might be studied, mainly for non-target organisms. Studies are therefore needed to evaluate Bt toxicity to non-target organisms; the persistence of Bt toxin and its stability in aquatic environments; and the risks to humans and animals exposed to potentially toxic levels of Bt through their diet.
Thus, we aimed to evaluate, in Swiss albino mice, the hematotoxicity and genotoxicity of four Bt spore-crystals…
The tests demonstrated that Cry proteins were cytotoxic to bone marrow cells, accounting for a portion of the measured effects. It should also be noted that a previous study found that these proteins caused hemolysis (they killed blood cells) in vitro, particularly seeming to target the cell membranes of red blood cells. This confirms previous studies not widely reported in mainstream media, that demonstrated Geneticall Modified organisms used as food are capable of causing cancer in humans.
American must have been quite shocked to wake up after the Thanksgiving weekend's festivities to dind they are no longer living in what was arguably but proclaimed by many to be the world's greatest democracy, but are now ruled by the God - King Obama, who makes new laws by Imperial decree and considers those who question him criminals. The coup d'etat that killed off American democracy was carried out while the populace was diverted not only by the holiday weekend but by the carefully engineered civil unrest in freguson Missouri.
Genetically Modified Truth? How Corpoate Money Corrupted Science.
Little Nicky is sceptical about many things, it's in my job description. Incidentally, for the benefit of those over qualified, under educated idiots who think I'm right wing extremist, it is a basic tenet of Liberal philosophy that we all have a duty to question that which is presented as an established truth.
Five reasons why Roundup should be banned forever
As everyone who follows the Daily Stirrer will be aware, we are no fans of the push for genetically modified foods. Now before anyone accuses us of being 'anti - science' let's clarify that a little. It is not genetic modification per se we are against, tweaking the genes of peaches to add a bit of plum DNA and thus get rid of that awful, fuzzy skin and produce Nectarines is fine.
What we are against is genetically engineering food crop plants to be resistant to what are euphemistically named "weed killers" so the fields can be sprayed with stuff that will kill
The Insanity Of Those Who believe Genetically Modified Foods Are Safe
Some people will tell you that everything we eat is genticically modified as a way of trying to persuade you those of us campaigning against government / corporate efforts to force GM foods into our diet are just scaremongers. There is a big difference however between selective breeding which farmers have done foir thousands of years, and re-engineering plant DNA so the plant still produces its foodcrop even efter being splayed with weedkillers and pesticides deadly to humans in very small quantities
UK Government Collaborating With The GM Biotech Sector To Get Toxic GM Shite Introduced Into Britain.
We have already witnessed allegedly democratic governments collaborating with corporate pirates to the detriment of citizens best intertests, now we are seeing it again. As a moutain of evidence stacks up to confirm that concerns about the safety of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and showing claims of increased crop yilds to be exaggerated, politicians with financial links to the biotech companies are queueing to spout corporate propaganda an support of this toxic shite.
Connecticut Governor signs first GMO labeling law in US - Gives Us All Hope
In the war against GM food being forced down our throats, it's the massed and massive budgets of corporate giants like Monsanto,Nestle, Dow and Syngenta versus a bunch ob loggers with laptops. It ought to be the biggest mismatch since David and Goliath, but the corporate fascists are actually outnumbered and outgunned. Let's go get those evil GMO food crops guys.
Are 90% Of Cancer Research Studies Fraudulent?
A shocking report published in nature magazine has revealed that up to 89% of cancer research studies may be fraudulent. In that many cases the results reported were not reproducable and were in the interests of Pharmaceutical and healthcare corporations rather than cancer sufferers. It is not clear in how many cases the researchers were knowingly dishonest and how many were just stupid ...
Diabetes skyrockets across America as Big Pharma drugs fail yet again
In spite of year on year increases in medication usage rates for preventing and treating Type II diabetes, the condition is becoming more prevalent throughout the U.S.A., according to a new study published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Between 1995 and 2010, the number of people diagnosed with diabetes in nearly half of all the U.S. states more than doubled, ...
Death By Genocidally Modified Food
The now notorious Monsanto Protection Act, recently passed by the US Congress, which gives biotech corporations, particularly Monsanto immunity from criminal or civil prosecution should harm to humans or the environment arise from ...
