BT toxins from GM foods found in blood of pregnant women
An independent study from Sherbrooke, QC demonstrates for the first time the presence of pesticides from GMOs in the blood of women, including pregnant women and their fetuses.
Toxins – even at a low concentration – can have a long-term effect.
Dr. Aziz Aris, the author of the study, which was funded by a Quebec fund for health research, cited the need for more research on the impact of GMOs on humans. "The impact of GMOs has been extensively tested on animals, but not on humans."
What is the real impact of introducing transgenic crops into our food system?
The community supported agriculture (CSA) model, where family farmers provide baskets full of fresh, locally grown food, is certainly one solution that tastes good!
