Unlike soy, industrial hemp is not genetically modified or treated with pesticides.
If it’s not labeled organic or non-GMO, you have to assume that the soy you’re eating was genetically modified by Monsanto for resistance to Roundup, a dangerous pesticide.
“Symptoms following exposure to Roundup: swollen eyes, face and joints; facial numbness; burning and/or itching skin; blisters; rapid heart rate; elevated blood pressure; chest pains, congestion; coughing; headache; and nausea. In developmental toxicity studies using pregnant rats and rabbits, Roundup caused treatment-related effects in high dose groups, including diarrhea, decreased body weight gain, nasal discharge and death. A 2002 peer-reviewed study finds children born to parents exposed to Roundup show a higher incidence of attention deficit disorder and hyperactivity. EPA material safety data sheets list Roundup as a respiratory irritant that can cause irritation to skin and mucous membranes, chest burning, coughing, nausea and vomiting.”
