It’s associated with lower IQ, mood disorders and is a carcinogen and teratogen (substances…
Doses of glyphosate and Roundup that regulators have assumed to be safe also cause fatty liver disease and death of liver tissue. Report by Claire Robinson and Michelle Perro, MD At-a-glance Nearly all genetically modified (GM) crops worldwide are engineered to be grown with glyphosate-based herbicides such as Roundup. A 2019 study in rats provides…
Researchers say pregnant women and babies must be protected against exposures to pesticides, including glyphosate herbicides.
Rats fed the genetically modified yeast-derived protein soy leghemoglobin – the burger’s key ingredient – developed unexplained weight gain and signs of toxicity. Report by Claire Robinson and Michael Antoniou, PhD
In a rat feeding study, genetically modified (GM) Bt insecticidal corn caused altered blood biochemistry, organ damage (including damage to liver and kidney), and potential impacts on male fertility.
One agency concluded glyphosate is not genotoxic, while the other concluded it is. A new peer-reviewed paper explains the reasons for the disagreement.
Gut bacteria play a role in whether our children will develop leukemia – and there may be a link with glyphosate and GM crops, writes Michelle Perro, MD
Dr. Caius Rommens developed GMO potatoes that are now in the food supply. He has now renounced his products and written a book warning about the risks
Children’s health is in crisis. But breakthroughs in our understanding of the importance of gut health can help reverse even serious disease, writes Michelle Perro, MD
New study findings suggest that women who are trying to conceive should eat organic food, writes Myrto Ashe, M.D.
