    I am a veterinarian involved in anti-GE foods,at the moment with GE soy, in NZ and note that Dow AgScience show, in their application, the lectins in GE soy are 25% higher.Lectins are known to produce changes in the gut similar to those found in autistic children; the allied use of glyphosate also causes changes in the gut flora(also found in autistic children).
