Study shows Monsanto’s Bt toxin kills human embryo cells
by: Ethan A. Huff
(NaturalNews) More evidence has surfaced showing that Monsanto’s Bt toxin, which the company claims doesn’t harm humans, is definitively poisoning the populace. New research out of Canada explains that Bt toxin not only accumulates in human tissue but also kills human embryo cells in pregnant women.
For their study, researchers from the University of Sherbrooke Hospital Centre in Quebec looked at pesticides associated with genetically modified (GM) foods, and particularly Bt toxin engineered into some varieties of GM corn and soy. They focused on how these poisons affect pregnant women and their unborn babies.
Based on an analysis of the blood profiles of 30 pregnant women and 39 non-pregnant women, the team determined that CryAb1, a type of Bt toxin, was present not only in pregnant women but also their fetuses. Additionally, Bt toxin was observed to actually kill human embryos in vivo, or inside the bodies of the women.
This deadly phenomenon is known as reproductive toxicology, and it’s something that Monsanto, when first petitioning the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for approval of Bt toxin, promised wasn’t possible. In other words, the company clearly lied to the U.S. government about the deadly effects of this poison, which an earlier study out of the same hospital found is present in virtually all pregnant women’s bodies.
“This is the first study to reveal the presence of circulating PAGMF [pesticides associated to genetically modified foods] in women with and without pregnancy, paving the way for a new field in reproductive toxicology including nutrition and utero-placental toxicities,” wrote the authors.
Bt toxin destroys human kidneys, causes cancer
What this means for the general population is that typical consumption of foods containing GMO derivatives from Bt crops could lead to an inability to have children. Rather than just kill insects as Monsanto claims, Bt toxin directly targets unborn human children as well, according to the study, which means GMO crops themselves are a human pesticide.
“Not only do these cry-toxins (Bt toxin) target the kidney cells of developing humanfetuses, but when Cry1Ab and Cry1Ac are combined with Roundup, they can delay apoptosis of human cancer cells,” wrote Christina Sarich from TheRebel.org about the nephrotoxicity and carcinogenicity of Bt toxin.
“What’s worse, glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup, also causes necrosis — i.e. the death of human tissue, and this happens even when the substance is found in much smaller amounts than what is currently being used on our agricultural crops. The stuff is still carcinogenic in the parts per trillion range.”
Roundup makes Bt toxin even more harmful
So not only is Bt toxin highly damaging to humans at levels commonly seen in food, but so is Roundup, the “safe” herbicide applied to many GM crops. And when combined, these two poisons become synergistically more toxic than they are separately, a fact that was never even considered during their approval.
Should products like Bt corn really be on the market if their derivatives have been shown to kill unborn children? Should any GMO be on the market that has the ability cause cancer or liver damage? The U.S. government still doesn’t even require that GMOs be labeled, let alone mandate that they undergo human safety testing prior to approval.
If GMOs are different enough from non-GMOs to warrant patents that require farmers to purchase corporate-owned seeds every year, then they’re different enough to be labeled, especially if they pose a risk to unborn children. Perhaps more folks need to start filing lawsuits against Monsanto for targeting their families with weaponized “food” that acts more as a contraceptive than actual nourishment.
