Is Genetically Altered Corn Producing Herbicides In Your Gut?

Biotech engineered corn may be slowly poisoning American consumers. Dupont’s Pioneer Liberty Link corn was bioengineered to withstand high levels of the toxic herbicide glufosinate. Enzymes in the plant actually break down the herbicide, making it less toxic to the plant, but likely NOT to the human gut where scientists are now finding that enzymes there are likely “reactivating” the herbicide within our bodies. A recent study on rats found that 10% of the chemicals were reconverted back to the toxic herbicide within the digestive tract of the animal. Another study on goats found a full 30% of the herbicide was rebuilt in the gut. Glufosinate is known to cause nerve damage and is a likely endocrine disruptor. Scientists are also concerned that by reactivating the toxic chemical in the digestive tract, it is likely killing off beneficial bacteria necessary for healthy digestion.

Please Save The Internet From AT & T et al

Companies like AT&T, Verizon and Comcast are spending tens of millions of dollars in Washington to kill “network neutrality” — a principle that keeps the Internet open to all.

A bill moving quickly through Congress would
let these companies become Internet gatekeepers,
deciding which Web sites go fast or slow — and which
won’t load at all — based on who pays them more. The rest
of us will be detoured to the “slow lane,” clicking furiously and
waiting for our favorite sites to download.
