Over 40 Rodent Feeding Studies Show Genetically Modified Food is Disastrous to Health:

…Why aren’t these foods labeled?

GMO Free USA has published a listing of more than 40 rodent studies showing that animals fed GM corn and soy suffer dire results. For those who say there is no ‘science’ to prove that GMOs are unsafe, I enjoin them to peruse the following list. [1]

Among the ailments suffered by the rats fed Roundup Ready or Bt-toxin GM-feed were:

  • Increased intestinal infections
  • High cholesterol
  • Birth defects
  • Weight-increase and higher incidence of mortality
  • Organ pathologies in the liver, kidneys, pancreas, ovaries, testes, and adrenals
  • Major issues with both the intestinal tracts and immunity of the animals tested

And why again are we still eating GM food? These studies suggest they should all be banned as Russia is doing – if not at least labeled.

  1. squodgy Says:

    Sadly that list omits the unfortunate story of Professor Arpad Pusztai, who was asked to test GM Potatoes, for suitability of human consumption.

    His test with the white rodents proved similar to the Seralini test, but ten years earlier.

    But Big Agri got him fired within 24 hours of his publishing the results. Tony Bliar was the UK P.M., so Professor Pusztai should really thank his lucky stars he wasn’t found under a tree with his wrist cut like weapons inspectors do in UK.
