Roundup Ready Soybean, GTS 40-3-2, is a genetically engineered variety of glyphosate-resistant soybeans created by Monsanto. Glyphosate kills plants by obstructing the synthesis of the essential amino acids phenylaline, tyrosine, and tryptophan. These amino acids are referred to as “essential” due to the fact that animals cannot make them; only plants and micro-organisms can make them and animals acquire them by consuming plants. Plants and microorganisms make these amino acids with...
Vistive Gold, MON 87705, is a genetically engineered variety of glyphosate-resistant low-linolenic, high-oleic soybeans created by Monsanto. Vistive Gold was designed to be a replacement for hydrogenated oils and fats, which are high in trans-fatty acids. The decreased linolenic content enables Vistive Gold to have favorable traits for deep frying and increasing the shelf life of foods. The Federal Register declared on June 28, 2011 that Monsanto was petitioning the Animal and Plant...

Enviropigs create the enzyme phytase in their salivary glands. When cereal grains are consumed, the phytase mixes with...

It is thought to be native to Asia, but was found in the United States in 1954 and in Colombia in the 1980’s. It can be found in Italy and Iran and its most recent sightings have occurred in Brazil and Argentina, two major areas where soybeans are grown. These worms are highly damaging to American soybean crops, costing the industry as much as 500 thousand...
