Roundup-Treated GM Foods Linked To Cause Birth Defects and Cancer

October 6, 2010: 09:13 AM EST

Scientific studies show that glyphosate, an active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup Ready herbicide, is linked to high increases in reproductive problems and early childhood health issues. Of particular concern is the use of Roundup on 90% of the soy crops in North America, along with growing usage in South American crop production. Soy, frequently used in infant formula and by nursing mothers, may be linked to a 300% increase in childhood cancer and a 400% increase in birth defects in Argentina over the last decade.  Advocacy groups want countries to mandate proper labeling and force retailers to pull products contaminated by genetic modification, especially baby formula, from their shelves.
