No wonder they don't want to label this garbage. No one wants to eat it anyway, but they keep on doing everything we know is bad for us and puts us into a position of having it literally shoved down our throats. Soon there will be no alternatives.

“Our study clearly shows that the GM transformation process results in profound compositional differences in NK603, demonstrating that this GMO corn is not substantially equivalent to its non-GMO counterpart. The marked increase in putrescine and especially cadaverine is a concern since these substances are potentially toxic, being reported as enhancers of the effects of histamine, thus heightening allergic reactions, and both have been implicated in the formation of carcinogenic nitrosamines with nitrite in meat products. Our results call for a more thorough evaluation of the safety of NK603 corn consumption on a long-term basis.” Dr. Antoniou stated.

In-depth analysis of types of proteins (“proteomics”) and small biochemical molecules (“metabolomics”) revealed major compositional differences between NK603 and its non-GMO parent. The results obtained show not only disturbances in energy utilisation and oxidative stress (damage to cells and tissues by reactive oxygen), but worryingly large increases in certain substances (polyamines).

Polyamines found to be present in increased amounts in GMO NK603 corn include putrescine and cadaverine, which can produce various toxic effects. For example, they enhance the effects of histamine, thus heightening allergic reactions, and both have been implicated in the formation of carcinogenic substances called nitrosamines.

Perhaps this is another topic that will go along the wayside in "their" effort to criminalize "fake news?" If I were them, I might consider never letting the truth get out in the open too! Can anyone find or remember that quote by G. Bush Sr., were he said that "if they find out what we have done, we will be hanging from the lampposts."

If someone has the time to find it , please post or start new thread with it. I am at "work" now and don't have too much time.

Peace and Love, Drumz
