Genetically Modified Soy causes Infertility

discover if Monsanto's genetically modified (GM) soy, grown on 91% of
US soybean fields, leads to problems in growth or reproduction. The
study, jointly conducted by Surov's Institute of Ecology and Evolution
of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the National Association for
Gene Security, is expected to be published in July.
After feeding hamsters for two years over three generations,most
Genetically Modified (GM) soy-fed hamsters lost the ability to have
babies. They also suffered slower growth, and a high mortality rate
among the pups.
They used 5 pairs of Campbell hamsters per group, each of which
produced 7-8 litters, totally 140 animals.
Surov selected new pairs from each group, which generated another 39
litters. There were 52 pups born to the control group and 78 to the
non-GM soy group. In the GM soy group, however, only 40 pups were
born. And of these, 25% died. This was a fivefold higher death rate
than the 5% seen among the controls. Of the hamsters that ate high GM
soy content, only a single female hamster gave birth. She had 16 pups;
about 20% died.
We must ban genetically modified foods in the USA. I won't be eating anymore soy at restaurants anymore!
