Natural News revealed a breakthrough report on the nutritional density of genetically-modifiied (GM) corn crops which demolishes all existing claims that GMO’s are “substantially equivalent” to non GMO’s. Entitled 2012 Nutritional Analysis; comparison of GMO corn vs Non-GMO Corn, the paper reveals not only that GMO corn is greatly lacking in vitamins and minerals compared to Non-GMO Corn, but also that it is highly toxic and filled with deadly crop chemicals like Glyphosate (Roundup).
The owners of the blog Mons Across America.com said a report was shared with them by De Dell Seed Company, Canada’s only Non-GMO Corn seed supplier which obtained it from a Minnesota-based agricultural company called Profit Pro. Overall, the paper found that Non GMO corn is 20 times richer in nutrition, energy and protein, compared to GMO corn.
Concerning energy content, as measured in terms of ERGS, Non-GMO Corn was found in tests to give off 3400 times more energy per gram, per second compared to GMO corn, an astounding variance. As far as its overall percentage of organic matter is concerned, Non-GMO Corn was determined to have nearly twice as much of this vital component compared to GMO Corn.
Non-GMO Corn contains substantiallly more potassium, magnesium, calcium, sulphur and manganese.
The field comparison also evaluated individual nutrient deviations, which revealed some shocking facts. Potassium, which is necessary for energy production and proper cellular function, is barely even present in GMO Corn, having clocked in at 0.7 parts per million (ppm). In Non-GMO Corn, however, potassium levels where more than 13 times higher, testing at 9.2 ppm.
The nerve cells in the body in particular are dependant on potassium and sodium, the so called sodium and potassium pump action.
The disparity was even worse for magnesium, which tested at a mere 0.2ppm in GMO Corn. In Non-GMO Corn, magnesium levels where found to be 46 times higher than in GMO Corn. Similar variances where observed for calcium, sulphur and manganese as well, with the contents of each being 12.4, 14, and 7 times higher respectively.
The kidneys rely on the electrolytes of sodium, potassium, magnesium and chloride for hydration, water on its own is not sufficient to accomplish this.
On the other hand, Non-GMO Corn was found to be free of chlorides, formaldehyde, glyphosate, and other harmful chemicals, while in GMO Corn they were identified in dangerously high levels. According to an analysis of the report by Mons Across America.com, GMO Corn contains about 19 times more Glyphosate than is permitted as a maximum in drinking water by the US Environmental Protection Agency, and 130 times more Glypohosate than has been found in tests to cause organ damage in animals.
Similarly, GMO Corn contains dangerously high levels of Formaldehyde, according to the report. A previous study conducted by Dr Don Huber on GMO’s revealed that .97ppm of Formaldehyde is toxic if ingested by animals. As it turns out, GMO Corn contains 200 times more Formaldehyde than this maximum safety threshold.
The hidden hazard of GMO products could be for those prone to allergies or digestive disorders such as IBS, because of the lack of product labelling. Producers of organic products are so proud of their products, labelling is both clear and obvious, whereas one can only assume that Monsanto and the like, are so ashamed of theirs they avoid labelling at all costs. If a person develops an allergy or becomes intolerant to one or another GMO food, avoidance will be almost impossible due to the lack of labelling. Some agricultural workers have already developed allergies to handling GMO Cotton. – See more at: http://localhost/vbh2/blog.php#sthash.Lqt61zrL.dpuf
