On 14 May 2014 BBC News reported:
Could pesticides -- their use and abuse -- increase levels of cancer and birth defects? It is a question asked across the vast belt of Argentina where GM crops are grown. Argentina has become one of the world's largest producers of GM soya, with some 20 million hectares under cultivation. It is the nation's leading export. The biotechnology revolution in agriculture began to transform Argentina in the mid-1990s. And it is the agrochemicals that support the crops that worry people. In local research published in 2012, of those surveyed in Avia Terai, nearly a third said someone in the family had cancer in the last 10 years. In comparison, in one of Chaco's ranching communities, just 3 per cent of those asked said they had a relative with cancer. One of the report's authors was Dr Maria del Carmen Seveso, who noticed something else too -- a rise in the number of pregnant women with eclampsia, a life-threatening condition. Another doctor has charted the increase of children born disabled. 'I'm talking about all kinds of disability -- some had missing limbs, others had aberrations of their sex organs,' he says.
