GMO Food : Regulators Discover a Hidden Viral Gene in Commercial GMO Crops

How should a regulatory agency announce they have discovered something potentially very important about the safety of products they have been approving for over twenty years?

In the course of analysis to identify potential allergens in genetically engineered foods crops, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has belatedly discovered that the most common genetic regulatory sequence in commercial genetically engineered foods also encodes a significant fragment of a viral gene (Podevin and du Jardin 2012).


This finding has serious ramifications for crop biotechnology and its regulation, but possibly even greater ones for consumers and farmers. This is because there are clear indications that this viral gene (called Gene VI) might not be safe for human consumption. It also may disturb the normal functioning of crops, including their natural pest resistance.

What Podevin and du Jardin discovered is that of the 86 different transgenic events (unique insertions of foreign DNA) commercialized to-date in the United States 54 contain portions of Gene VI within them. They include any with a widely used gene regulatory sequence called the CaMV 35S promoter (from the cauliflower mosaic virus; CaMV). Among the affected transgenic events are some of the most widely grown GMOs, including Roundup Ready soybeans (40-3-2) and MON810 maize. They include the controversial NK603 maize (genetically engineered foods) recently reported as causing tumors in rats (Seralini et al. 2012).

The researchers themselves concluded that the presence of segments of Gene VI “might result in unintended phenotypic changes”. They reached this conclusion because similar fragments of Gene VI have already been shown to be active on their own (e.g. De Tapia et al. 1993). In other words, the EFSA researchers were unable to rule out a hazard to public health or the environment.

  1. This new research proves that Genetically Modified food crops contain altered Genes that are not safe for human consumption,specifically Gene VI, as it has already been shown in research to be active on it's own to disable their host in order to facilitate pathogen invasion.

    The viral gene achieves this by incapacitating specific anti-pathogen defenses.

    Therefore, incorporating these viral genes clearly leads to undesirable and unexpected
    outcomes in humans, animals and plants, such as allergies, asthma, tumors, toxicity,
    cancers, death, and crop failures

    1. Nearly every processed food contains either GMO corn or GMO soy, produced en masse in the U.S. and the E.U.

      The implications are beyond staggering, as GMO foods were put in mass production since 1994.

      Don't count on the regulators to save you, or make your food safe. We have countless alphabet agencies, and the revolving doors in Washington and Wall Street keep on turning. The E.U. and The U.S are hand in hand.

      We instinctively know that we have been fed poison, even as the evidence is suppressed by the media, and the agencies try to con us with the Food Safety Act.

      So...why are they still selling it as safe?

      Not buying it, don't buy it, don't eat it!

    2. These GMO foods are killing us. I have read in daily express that the commonest modification in GM crops includes a "significant fragment of a viral gene" known as Gene VI, a new viral DNA in GMO foods causing food contamination.

  2. how do we know what to eat and what not to eat anymore??

  3. Is it a sort of control they want us to die to control population

  4. Even organic label has been modified to accept a percentage of these modified monsanto foods trust nothing but local foods as hard an expensive as it is. The government is completley run by these massive corporations that don't give a shit about us only the dollar. We have allowed deregulation and corporate buyout of our government and its probably too late to do anything about. Sad blind dumb sheep that's what we are.change is too hard for a lazy people.

  5. They are trying to slowly poison us without a trace.
