In a study taken up by a Russian scientist Irina Ermakova [at the Institute of Higher Nervous Activity and Neurophysiology of the Russian Academy of Sciences], most offspring of GM-Soy-fed rats died in addition to showing growth abnormalities when compared to the offspring of non-GM-soy-fed rats. Within three weeks, 25 of the 45 (55.6%) rats from the GM soy group died compared to only 3 of 33 (9%) from the non-GM soy group and 3 of 44 (6.8%) from the non-soy controls. The soy she was testing was Monsanto’s Roundup Ready variety, which had bacterial genes inserted in it to withstand applications of glyphosate of Monsanto’s brand called Roundup.

Studies at the University of Urbino in Italy showed that mice fed with GM Soy had misshapen nuclei in their liver cells, suggesting a possible response to an elevated level of toxins. These mice also had dramatic reductions in enzyme production in their pancreas.

Cooked GM soy is reported to contain twice the amount of soy lectin, which can also block nutrient assimilation. The gene that is inserted into GM soy produces a protein that resembles known allergens.
