EPA Approves Exemption for GMO Bt toxin in soy foods and feed & FDA & Ractopamine feed

Final rule Feb. 12, 2014: “In what could easily be classified as one of the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) worst decisions yet, a final rule released by the EPA earlier this month creates an exemption for residue tolerance levels of genetically modified (GM) Bt toxin in GM soy foods and feed.1 Essentially, the Agency has approved unlimited residues of GM Bt toxin in your food!”

  • 80 percent of umbilical blood in their babies
  • 67 percent of non-pregnant women

GM corn is present in the vast majority of all processed foods and drinks in the form of high fructose corn syrup, corn oil, and other corn products. They also suggested that the toxin may have come from eating meat from animals fed Bt corn, which most livestock raised in concentrated animal feeding operations. (CAFOS)
