Why we should eat non-GMO 100% organic corn and soy

 [See UPDATE at bottom]

Corn and Soy…

…are the most genetically modified crops out there, due to their being used in vast quantities by animal farmers and their wanting the stuff cheap and easy to grow, regardless of the health consequences. So those two crops, when not grown organically, are heavily modified.

Tofu, Eggplant & Rice Dish

Monsanto’s glyphosate is the chemical at issue here…it’s also known as Roundup®, which is the most used herbicide in the USA and is being used increasingly around the world. “Roundup-ready” genetically engineered crops are grown from seeds engineered to contain a gene from “Agrobacteria.” That genetic modification makes the food crops resistant to glyphosate, meaning that only unwanted foliage cannot survive, serving to keep the food crops pure and most profitable. Users of Roundup-ready seeds are required to treat their crops with Roundup®. Corn and soy are the primary Roundup-ready crops, since, again, they’re the mainstays in the diets of “food animals.”

Of course, the manufacturer of glyphosate says it is beneficial and relatively harmless, so if you’d like to see that side, simply Google “Monsanto’s statement about glyphosate.”

Canola oil is another item which is heavily modified using Roundup® on the rapeseed crops, so it’s also wise to avoid anything but 100% organic non-GMO canola oil, if you use that oil at all.

What’s wrong with glyphosate?

Glyphosate is a broad-spectrum systemic herbicide which is said by some scientists to disrupt the way the body manages sulfur. Autism, for example, is associated with poor sulfur metabolism. Glyphosate also supposedly causes aluminum to be more toxic in the body, which is a great health concern due to the aluminum in vaccines.

Pathogens

Glyphosate is said by some to kill beneficial bacteria in the gut which allows pathogens (disease-causing bacteria) like C. difficile to overgrow which leads to “leaky gut syndrome” and indirectly promotes aluminum uptake by cells. All this can lead to kidney failure which leads to aluminum retention in tissues (including the brain) which can lead to dementia, a.k.a. Alzheimer’s disease.

Some scientists also claim that glyphosate disrupts the “shikimate pathway” in our guts and depletes our tryptophan, which is the precursor to melatonin. Melatonin transports sulfate into the brain and reduces heavy metal toxicity in the body. Good stores of melatonin are said to bind to toxic metals like aluminum, lead, etc., and reduce their toxic effects in the body. But unfortunately, those scientists (Samsel and Seneff) get much of their data from animal studies. But if the above is true for humans, our being low in melatonin can bring on a lot of damage.

Vegan foods (preferably organic) high in Tryptophan are: Nuts, Seeds, Tofu & Soy, Oats, Beans, Lentils

Foods (preferably organic) high in Melatonin are: Pineapples, Bananas, Oranges, Oats, Sweet Corn, Rice, Tomatoes, Barley 

So, especially for anything containing corn, soy products or canola oil, just be sure it’s labeled 100% organic and non-GMO and you should avoid any problems related to glyphosate. If corn, soy or canola oil are listed in ingredients without the terms “organic” and “non-GMO,” simply avoid that product to help protect your health.

It makes one wonder how the animals and the animal products most people consume are affected by this herbicide. Surely some of the common illnesses farm animals suffer are due to glyphosate in all that corn and soy, among many other unhealthy practices. It’s likely that the meat, milk and eggs that come from these intensive farms has harmful effects, in concentrated form, for people who consume them. Sorry for the following image, but this is the reality…

UPDATE: Current related article concerning suspicions of people developing non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (a form of cancer) as a result of exposure to glyphosate, despite the findings from animal studies which concluded that the herbicide would not cause cancer in humans: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/14/business/monsanto-roundup-safety-lawsuit.html Another case where animal testing is shown to be unscientific and dangerous, aside from the sadistic cruelty perpetrated by “human” beings against the innocent and helpless.

  1. Thanks, Laura! Now they’ve done it to APPLES too! “Okanagan’s GRANNY SMITH and GOLDEN DELICIOUS varieties of apples, known collectively by the trade name “ARCTIC APPLES,” are genetically engineered to resist browning associated with cuts and bruises by reducing levels of enzymes that can cause browning.” The other brands of apples to avoid that have been approved for GMO tampering are FUJI and GALA.
    Like it’s not good for us to know when our fruits are past the ripe stage….
    What they’re doing is turning the healing foods from nature into McDonald’s Frankenstein burgers, which can sit there for years without decomposing. And if Roundup is so safe to put into foods as the pro-GMO’ers claim, then why not just put it in a glass and drink it?

    • Exactly! I’ve known apples are on the “must be organic to be safe” list for some time so I only buy organic apples anymore, but thanks for that additional info. I stuck to only corn and soy here because of their connection to animal agriculture, that being the only reason those two crops are so obscenely genetically engineered. Cotton is the other extensively Roundup-ready crop, but I concentrated only on what people ingest. I’ve read further that what makes corn, soy, cotton, and rape(!) seeds immune to glyphosate is that they’re engineered to contain a gene from “Agrobacteria.” I hadn’t known that detail before. The seeds alone are Frankensteinian even if Roundup isn’t used on the crops. Then there are problems with other foliage becoming resistant to the herbicide, so all sorts of complications come into play. The root of all this is, of course, animal agriculture. One more important reason for everyone to embrace veganism.
