    The history of the introduction of soy into our diets in mid 20 Century is very shady to say the least; those wanting to make a huge profit misrepresented this legume to the public.

    Back in 1994, Monsanto, the world’s largest agricultural corporation, genetically modified soy to survive far greater pesticide exposure than organic soy can. Monsanto began selling their pesticide-resistant soy, which they marketed as “Roundup Ready Soy,” to complement Roundup, their pesticide. Roundup’s main ingredient, glyphosate, is carcinogenic and destroys soil integrity [7]. When studies began to find very high levels of glyphosate in Roundup Ready Soy,[COLOR="#4B0082"]Monsanto responded by saying these were “extreme levels” that aren’t the norm. A subsequent study found that 70% of GMO soy has the glyphosate levels Monsanto called “extreme,” and that the nutrients in glyphosate-sprayed GMO soybeans are lower than those of organic soy [7], likely because of a drop in soil quality
    Presently. there is a lawsuit against Monsanto for their "Roundup" herbicide spray. yet they haven't removed it from the market. Should you have a jug of this toxin, in case you have used this product, store the plastic container in a container should the plastic crack. Then, God forbid, you develop lymphoma, you can make your case.

    Again, just in case you missed it; researchers found glyphosate to promote cancer (lymphoma) in rats and mice. Organophoshates have also been found to cause cancer.

    Soy aside, not all organic produced cultivars are produced in poor soils.

    Article on Soy composed by PhD Dr. of Nutrition for the general public; worth the read!

    Articles relate concerns of toxicity issues in GM corn and GM soy - testing results referenced in articles

    GM corn found to contain toxins, is found to cause various serious ill health effects in rats

    https://www.gmoscience.org/2019/03/1...ale-fertility/

    "They found toxic effects in several organs of the rats fed the GM corn. Abnormalities found in the GM-fed animals (but not in the non-GM-fed or standard diet-fed animals) included:

    Vacuolation (formation of storage structures – for example, of fatty compounds) in liver cells, indicating liver damage
    Fatty degeneration of liver cells
    Congestion of blood vessels in kidneys and cystic malformations of kidney tubules – signs of possible impending kidney failure
    Excessive growth and necrosis (death) of intestinal structures called villi
    Examination of the testes revealed necrosis and desquamation (shedding) of the spermatogonial cells that are the precursors of sperm cells and thus the foundation of male fertility."
    A newer veggie burger product that contains soy root protein, was a hit in NY City; apparently now it is hard to find.

    Why is a very interesting story.

    Another GMO ingredient

    "Impossible Foods recently introduced a new recipe for its Impossible Burger. In addition to GMO-derived SLH, the burger now contains another GMO ingredient: protein from herbicide-tolerant soy. The company introduced soy protein to replace wheat protein in order to improve the texture and to avoid gluten, the protein in wheat that some people cannot tolerate.8 As a result, Impossible Burger Version 2.0 may contain residues of the “probable carcinogen” glyphosate,9 the main ingredient of the herbicide used on GM soy."
    “Although proteins are a part of the human food supply, not all proteins are safe. Information addressing the safe use of modified soy protein does not adequately address safe use of soybean leghemoglobin protein from the roots of the soybean plant in food.”
    SLH is the substance that gives the burger its meaty taste and makes it appear to bleed like meat when cut.
    I sincererely hope that the various manufacturers of rodent block will keep this bleeding soy protein, 'soylent green',

    out of rodent block diets.

    "Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) or foods are linked to allergies and antibiotic resistance, per the Center for Food Safety.

    Buying organic also protects consumers from potentially harmful side effects of pesticides, and some pesticides have been linked to cancer and hormone issues, as reported by the Environmental Protection Agency.
    "
    They found toxic effects in several organs of the rats fed the GM corn. Abnormalities found in the GM-fed animals (but not in the non-GM-fed or standard diet-fed animals)
    Considering the toxic effects of pesticides and fungicides; unfumigated organic produced shelled nuts are the safest sources for both wilds and NR cared for in captivity.
