Genetically modified (GM) foods are foods derived from genetically modified organisms (GMOs), in which the genetic material (DNA) has been altered in a way that does not occur in nature.
GM foods were first put on the US market in the early 1990s. Currently, the US alone plant of more than 50% of the world's GM crops, followed by Argentina and Brazil are taking another 30%.
These GMO foods contain many dangerous chemicals that will cause many health issues. There are some lawyers who are working to help people who are suffering from illness due to these GMO foods. They help them to get some financial compensation.
If you or your family member is also suffering from diseases due to the use of GMO products then you can also contact roundup lawyers to file a case against them. You can search for Monsanto roundup lawsuit lawyers through various web sources.
Four of the most common genetically modified (GM) crops in the US are:
- Soybeans (91% of all plants)
- Cotton (88%)
- Canola (88%)
- Corn (85%)
All of this is a common ingredient used in the manufacture of modern food. Therefore, if your diet consists of mainly processed foods, you will eat about 75% of GM foods.
According to the biotechnology industry and the US government, GM food is considered safe as long as the composition and nutritional characteristics are substantially equivalent to existing foods.
The truth is that GM foods were never properly tested for human consumption. Only eat animal studies have been conducted and the results have raised many alarm.
Various studies in mice and humans have challenged the alleged safety of Roundup, ranging from hormonal disorders, liver, and kidney function disorders, genetic damage.
Environmentalists claimed that Roundup is toxic to beneficial soil organisms and dangerous for birds and small mammals by destroying their food supplies and habitats.
