New Study! GMO's proven to cause cancer!
GMO corn and tumours
As an update to what we have spoken of in previous doses on GM foods, I wanted to bring you the latest on the severely detrimental health effects posed by GM corn. These effects are even more pronounced than originally thought and are graphically revealed in a recent study looking at the long-term effects of GM corn on humans and animals.
Natural News reported today on this study, a study just recently revealed in The Food and Chemical Toxicology Journal. According to results published in the UK publication The Grocer "Scientists found that rats exposed to even the smallest amounts, developed mammary tumors and severe liver and kidney damage as early as four months in males, and seven months for females."
Believe it or not this is the first long-term effects study performed on GM corn. One would expect such studies to be required before a “new” controversial food could be placed on the market, however and very unfortunately no such requirement exists in the US.
The findings should shock you since medical science uses rats and mice for studies because they mimic well the effects that can be expected in humans.
- Some 50% of males and 70% of females experienced premature death
- Those individuals that ingested trace amounts of roundup herbicide (the amount permitted in the environment) they experienced a 2-300% increase in tumours.
- Rats exposed to even the smallest amounts, developed mammary tumors and severe liver and kidney damage
- Negative effects on the adrenal glands, heart and blood cell generation
- By the end of the trial 80% of female rats had mammary tumours.
The rats in this study were fed the Monsanto variety of corn NK603, one of the main forms of corn in your cereals, corn chips and corn tortillas.
The actual title of the study is "A Comparison of the Effects of Three GM Corn Varieties on Mammalian Health."
"This research shows an extraordinary number of tumors developing earlier and more aggressively - particularly in female animals. I am shocked by the extreme negative health impacts." - Dr Michael Antoniou, molecular biologist, King's College London.
