Ditto on the genetic modification - does that just mean that it was bred for specific gene selectivity? A *lot* of crops are genetically modified now, and it's usually for size or something fairly innocuous like that. That statement reads as inflammatory, lacking in detail, and grammatically incorrect (while I'm not a grammar Nazi, it's always suspect to me on "scientific" websites where there's bad grammar and/or spelling). It's also suspect when they quote something like 99% and don't give their source material for it - where's the study that says so?

Further, is the pesticide "contamination" in the actual soy itself, or in some kind of extract, or....? I'd want to read the article that analyzed the pesticides?
