Farmer and More
should come as no surprise to most people today to know that most of the feed used in industrial breeding components it contains genetically modified (GM).
While this may seem innocent to some, for others the horror of feeding GM feed is too real and horrible.
Danish pig farmer Ib Pedersen is one of Europes largest suppliers of pigs, increasing to 13,000 pigs every year. When Pederson changed genetically modified feed started immediately see signs of trouble between their pigs. He witnessed everything from stomach ulcers, bloating and diarrhea than piglets born with severe deformities and terrible disease.
Frustrated, Pedersen decided to experiment with GM feed pigs and put on a diet of fish meal and soybean non-GMO. Within days, he had witnessed problems with GM food were. According to Pedersen, switch back to a normal diet resulted in a visible improvement in the health of pigs. account of the following occurred:
“fewer abortions, more piglets born in each litter, and breeding animals live longer.” He also argues that the man-hours have been reduced, less cleaning required and fewer complications with animals.
Pedersen believes that glyphosate, a powerful herbicide on GM food was one of the major contributors to the demise of their pigs. Although the results of Pedersen are somewhat unscientific in nature, the Danish Research Center pig is reviewing the case.
Pedersen finding contributes to a growing pile of peer reviewed taking into account the reports of farmers on the disastrous effects of the herbicide glyphosate and the modified crops to tolerate their application studies .
feeding studies in animals have shown that feed transgenic soy causes infertility, growth retardation and death in rats. For over twenty years, Professor Emeritus Don Huber of Purdue University (principal scientist USDA) has studied crop health and noticed how the reduced glyphosate-tolerant crops mineral content leads to nutritional deficiencies in cattle cause reproductive problems.
Are you sure Roundup
The manufacturers claim that Roundup herbicide is sold as is certain, however, epidemiological studies tell a different story. According to research, Roundup is a serious threat to health and can cause problems such as endocrine disorders, cancer, birth defects, neurological disorders and even DNA damage. The fact that scary for any damage that may cause the Roundup is that these effects may occur at very low doses that are now being discovered in food and feed crops and contaminated water.
Roundup found in the air, rain, groundwater, human urine and even in blood samples. The current rules of “safe” dose for Roundup are not based on new studies and are not protecting anyone.
More than 75% of GM crops are what is known as “Roundup Ready”. This simply means that large doses of this toxic herbicide can be sprayed on the entire crops and kill everything but the plant. Monsanto, maker of Roundup, even was exposed to hide the evidence of birth defects in laboratory animals that are already in the 1980s
With an increase of transgenic soybeans in North America and South Roundup and other agrochemicals are being used in mass quantities. A report created by doctors interested in Argentina noted the effects of agrochemicals on people on the basis of clinical data.
found an increase in cases of birth defects, infertility, cancer, kidney failure, allergies, neurological problems, respiratory distress and DNA damage.
Another report, commissioned by the government of the province of Chaco, Argentina, found that birth defects increased fourfold cancers and childhood tripled in just ten years in areas where rice and genetically modified crops are heavily doused with toxic chemicals. Aerial and ground spraying were the methods of delivery, and glyphosate was named as the main chemical in question.
is not only people in the vicinity of the spray are at risk of adverse health problems, but also those who consume made from crops sprayed products. Crops
glyphosate Roundup-Ready not break down, but rather to absorb, meaning it is still in the food when it is processed. Both people and animals consume toxic chemicals. People who eat meat or dairy products made from cows that have eaten contaminated food are at risk.
The researchers note that Roundup and other formulations are much more toxic than glyphosate alone. However, it was only glyphosate that was tested, not these other herbicides formulations. Until the test is done in the formulations to be sprayed on genetically modified crops, the risk is for millions of animals, people and the environment.
