A recent study carried out by a team at Sherbrooke University Hospital in Quebec and accepted for publication in the peer-reviewed journal Reproductive Toxicology has found that 93% of blood samples taken from pregnant women, 80% from umbilical cords and 67% of non-pregnant women tested positive for traces of the toxic Bt protein Cry1Ab originating from GM food consumed as part of a normal diet in Canada, where GM presence in food is unlabelled. This shows that the Bt proteins have survived the human digestive system and passed into the blood supply – something that regulators had said could not happen.
Meanwhile, yesterday, using legal chicanery, Monsanto won a case before the French Supreme Court which ruled that, based on an earlier ruling by the European Court of Justice, the French Department of Agriculture had no power to forbid the marketing and use of genetically modified corn seeds made by Monsanto.
The French people don't want GM seeds (or failing this want clear labeling) and once again -- as was & is the case in the financial sector -- American lobbies are at war with the people of the world (starting with their own people, of course).
5:59 AM PT: French Agriculture Minister Bruno Le Maire speaking after the Supreme Court decision said the French government is going to "look at all ways of NOT cultivating" genetically modified corn. Le Maire said that the new ruling did not come as a surprise but the government did not accept the case for allowing the corn to be planted and said "there are still too many uncertainties about the environmental consequences".
