Suspicious of claims that genetically modified (GMO) corn is safe? You might be onto something. A leaked study from an advocacy group claims lab-made corn contains high levels of toxic materials like glyphosate, which go well beyond safety limits established by the Environmental Protection Agency for things like drinking water. "Glyphosate draws out the vital nutrients of living things and GMO corn is covered with it," said Zen Honeycutt, from the anti-GMO group Moms Across America to Label GMOs. The report comes on the heels of an agriculture appropriations bill that was recently signed into law and included a controversial provision nicknamed the Monsanto Protection Act, providing GMO-producing companies broad legal protection against future lawsuits.

I wish this report were false. It is not a scientific study but I am told it is an accurate report , a test done by farmers looking for corn that did NOT have glyphosate in it. They were concerned for our health. Profit pro posted it, which is more than what Monsanto has done. If you challenge it, have Monsanto post their own findings! We believe they knew...they had the acceptable levels of Glyphosate raised from 6.6 ppm to 13ppm just minths before this report was put out. They had the "Monsanto Protection Act" pushed through just before this scientific study was published, showing that many American diseases are linked to glyphosate which is sprayed around our food and ON GMO food. They can't be sued for harm for the next six months. See more info on report here.
It is Moms ACROSS America March to label GMOs not "Against", Please correct.
First, it is MOMs AGainst Monsanto, NOT Moms against America. That is funny.
Moms buy 80% of groceries and have first line of defense in raising their kids, starting from conception. 1 in 88 babies is being born with autism. 1 in 6 have allergies to food, and the list goes on.
There is a simple solution: BS, SCC... quit eating Beet Sugar, Soy, Canola and Corn. The food companies will quit putting it in their food. They have already done so in 61 other countries.
Animals that eat BS, SCC have high levels of GMOs in their meat. The ranchers in the US are already switching to non GMO feed because their animals were having too many diseases, infertility, and miscarriages. Go to www.responsibletechnology.org for many research articles and videos.
