    Dr Pleasants: Roundup Ready GM Crops Cause Monarch Butterfly Decline

Dr Pleasants: Roundup Ready GM Crops Cause Monarch Butterfly Decline

Genetically engineered corn and soybeans make it easy for farmers to eradicate weeds, including the long-lived and unruly milkweed. But they might be putting the monarch butterfly in peril. (more…)

Prof Charles Benbrook: GM Crops Increase Use of Herbicides

The latest  study published by Washington State University research professor Charles Benbrook finds that the use of herbicides in the production of three genetically modified herbicide-tolerant crops — cotton, soybeans and corn — has actually increased. This counterintuitive finding

Dr. Don Huber: Glyphosate Associated with Increase in Cereal Diseases

In this Canadian Agricultural Research Center study glyphosate use was consistently associated with higher FHB levels caused by the most important FHB pathogens, Fusarium avenaceum and Fusarium graminearum. Cochliobolus sativus, the most common CRR pathogen, was negatively associated with previous glyphosate use,

Prof Robert J. Kremer: Glyphosate Increases Rhizosphere Bacteria

This University of Missouri study showed that the frequency of root-colonizing Fusarium increased significantly after glyphosate application during growing seasons in each year at all sites. Roots of GR soybean and maize treated with glyphosate were heavily colonized by Fusarium compared to non-GR

US Institute of Ecoystems: Bt Corn is Toxic to Water Ecosystems

This US Institute of Ecosystem Studies communicated paper shows that Bt corn byproducts, such as pollen and detritus, enters headwater streams and are subject to storage, consumption, and transport to downstream water bodies. Laboratory feeding trials showed that consumption of Bt

Prof John E Losey: Bt Corn Harms Monarch Butterfly Larvae

This Cornell University study showed that monarch larvae were badly affected by Bt corn. Larvae of the monarch butterfly, Danaus plexippus, reared on milkweed leaves dusted with pollen from Bt corn, ate less, grew more slowly and suffered higher mortality than larvae

    Dr Rick A. Relyea: Highly Lethal Effects of Roundup on Amphibians

Dr Rick A. Relyea: Highly Lethal Effects of Roundup on Amphibians

This Pittsburgh University study represents one of the most extensive experimental investigations of pesticide effects on aquatic communities and offers a comprehensive perspective on the impacts of pesticides when nontarget organisms are examined under ecologically relevant conditions. (more…)

Canada – GM Toxin in Human Blood

Scientists from the University of Sherbrooke, Canada, have detected the insecticidal protein, Cry1Ab, circulating in the blood of pregnant as well as non-pregnant women. They have also detected the toxin in fetal blood, implying it could pass on to the
