Roundup Toxin Accumulates in GM Soybeans A


study published in the journal Food Chemistry tested soybeans grown from seeds that were geneti- cally modified (GM) to be resistant to the herbicide Roundup. It com-


pared these with organic soybeans and soybeans from non-GM seeds. The chemical and nutritional analysis of soybean samples from 31 different Iowa farms found the GM soy contained significantly higher levels of the toxin glyphosate, the central chemi- cal in Roundup, than both the organic and the conventional non-GMO soy- beans. The organic soybeans contained no glyphosate, plus significantly higher levels of protein and zinc, as well as lower levels of saturated fats.


Homemade Infant Food Reduces Kids’ Allergies A


Healthy


study published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunol-


ogy reports that infants that were fed more homemade foods comprising a higher percentage of fruits and vegetables were less likely to develop food allergies. In assessing youngsters of the same age, researchers from the University of Southampton Medi- cal College, in the UK, followed 41 children that had developed food allergies by the age of 2, alongside 82 non-allergic infants. After tracking the toddlers’ diets with food diaries and conducting allergy testing, the re- searchers found that infants fed more of the healthier homemade diet had a significantly lower incidence of food allergies as toddlers.
