In 1999, Monsanto defined an "extreme level" of its Roundup herbicide as 5.6 milligrams per kilogram of plant weight.
So imagine how alarmed scientists were to find, on average, nine milligrams of Roundup per kilogram on 70 percent of the genetically engineered soy plants they recently tested. (At least 85 percent of all soy grown in the U.S. is genetically engineered).
The scientists studied 31 different soybean plants on Iowa farms. They compared the accumulation of pesticides and herbicides on plants in three categories: genetically engineered "Roundup Ready" soy, conventionally produced (non-GMO) soy, and soy cultivated using organic practices.
And the results were extremely disturbing.
The study will be published in June, in Food Chemistry, but it's available now online.
