The food industry, which is represented by the FDA, USDA and several large companies asserts that genetically modified foods (GMOs) are safe. In addition, they cite some additional factors that support the need for genetic engineering in agricultural production.
First among these is the increase in production with drought-resistant plants, diseases, and pests. They also claim that GM crops require less pesticide use and benefit the environment and consumers.
These GMO foods contain many dangerous chemicals that will cause many health issues. There are some lawyers who are working to help people who are suffering from illness due to these GMO foods. They help them to get some financial compensation.
If you or your family member is also suffering from diseases due to the use of GMO products then you can also contact roundup lawyers to file a case against them. You can search for roundup lawyers through http://www.monsantorounduplaw.com/florida-roundup-cancer-lawsuit/.
All these claims are further supported by the World Health Organization, National Academy of Sciences and the American Medical Association stating GMO foods to be safe as other foods.
Glyphosate blocks the function of enzymes that help plants absorb nutrients. Plants then starve to death quickly. Unfortunately, these food crop plants absorb glyphosate along with the weeds. They did not die as a result because of the genetic modification was designed to resist the process.
Glyphosate residue is then made its way into the food supply, either for direct consumption by humans in food packaging and through animals, who grew up in GMO corn and soybeans. High levels of glyphosate have been found in soybeans and corn products.
The problem is that doing the same glyphosate functions in the human body as well as in plants. That is, the glyphosate disrupts an enzyme that helps us to absorb nutrients, which can cause a number of diseases. If you have eaten any food packing recently, then you have most likely consumed glyphosate.
