    "A groundbreaking new study reveals elevated presence of formaldehyde, which is a known class1 carcinogen, and a dramatic depletion of glutathione, an important anti-oxidant necessary for cellular detoxification, in GMO soybeans. . . . The results reveal how a "small", single recombinant DNA event may create "large", unpredictable, systemic perturbations to molecular systems equilibria." http://www.integrativesystems.org/systems-biology-of-gmos/

    Paraphrasing Lyall Watson's famous saying: If Nature were so simple we could understand it and successfully manipulate it, we would be so simple we would not.
