Risks associated with the genetically engineered soybean Intacta should undergo more detailed assessment

Scientific publication casts doubt on the arguments of the EU Court of Justice

15 January 2017 / A new scientific publication authored by Testbiotech experts shows that health risks associated with Monsanto’s genetically engineered soybean “Intacta” were not sufficiently assessed. The soybeans produce an insecticide and are resistant to glyphosate and are allowed to imported for use in food and feed in the EU. Health risks arising from interactions between the residues left over from the glyphosate formulations and the insecticide were not investigated despite data showing that toxicity can be thus enhanced.
