Dr. Joseph Mercola is interviewing Dr. Don Huber about the implications of GMO crops.
A large part of the problem is the herbicide glyphosate that the seeds
are designed to be compatible with. Please make sure you watch 4:35 – 8:12 to get the most important detail.
You will hear that glyphosate is a chelator that immobiles something called cations. The end result is that nutrients like calcium, iron, magnesium, potasium and others may be present in foods but are not biologically available to the plants or to us. The problem is significant, is currently impacting feed crops such as corn, soy beans and alfalfa and is being transferred to us. The end result is a peculiar limited malnutrition that has caused the resurgence of 40 plant diseases and serious fertility issues in animal populations. In theory and likely in practice, we are also seriously affected although the evidence supported this is still building.
