Hmmm...... Interesting point. Could this be the reason Soy Beans are now one of the liberal "fad" foods?..... Yes, all that good nutrition and sterilization to boot! (not that the fad promoters would ever be eating the stuff themselves)

Hold your horses a sec... unpublished research from Russia? And you believe it?

I recall Russian research that showed how you have to plant whole potatos... lead to a pretty big famine in Stalin's day.

Note these guys haven't even published their paper yet. Smells fishy. Sounds like they just don't like Monsanto to me. Which is also understandable, but that is no evidence against GM crops.

Now today Putin is a lot better than Stalin. Which isn't saying much.

Who knows if this one study was done right. It sounds easy to replicate. Until it is replicated in a non-Stalinist country, I will not modify my behavior. But I await with interest someone replicating the fairly easy and inexpensive experiment.
