Christina Sarich – Study: Children Exposed to GMO Soy Pesticides Suffer ‘Serious Genetic Damage’

2015 study has shown that children exposed to pesticides used to grow GM soy suffer serious genetic damage. Does this mean that our children will suffer the same fate as those unfortunate enough to live near GM soy fields in Argentina?

Researchers from the National University of Río Cuarto, Cordoba (UNRC) compared children who lived close to a GM-soy growing area in Argentina to children who lived in another city in Cordoba that was not adjacent to GM soy fields.

 Genetic damage in the group of exposed children was 44% higher than in the unexposed children.
