Genetically Modified Corn linked to organ damage

  • Posted February 5, 2012

The International Journal of Biological Sciences recently published a study in which the effects of Genetically Modified Corn were studied. The analysis consisted of using rats as a test group, and feeding them Genetically Modified Corn over the course of 90 days.

Researchers referenced rats fed non-GM maize, rats fed an 11% Genetically Modified Corn diet, and rats fed a 33% Genetically Modified Corn diet. The researchers also separated data according to the sex of the rats.

The “conclusions” section had a nice summary of the analysis with this statement….

“Patho-physiological profiles are unique for each GM crop/food, underlining the necessity for a case-by-case evaluation of their safety, as is largely admitted and agreed by regulators. It is not possible to make comments concerning any general, similar subchronic toxic effect for all GM foods. However, in the three GM maize varieties that formed the basis of this investigation, new side effects linked to the consumption of these cereals were revealed, which were sex- and often dose-dependent. Effects were mostly concentrated in kidney and liver function, the two major diet detoxification organs, but in detail differed with each GM type. In addition, some effects on heart, adrenal, spleen and blood cells were also frequently noted. As there normally exists sex differences in liver and kidney metabolism, the highly statistically significant disturbances in the function of these organs, seen between male and female rats, cannot be dismissed as biologically insignificant as has been proposed by others. We therefore conclude that our data strongly suggests that these GM maize varieties induce a state of hepatorenal toxicity.”

So it seems that aside from effects to kidneys, liver, heart, adrenal, spleen, and blood cells…… Genetically Modified Corn and other GM food is pretty safe to eat.

What does all of this mean to you?

Well consider that probably 80% of processed food in America is made with GMO’s, and they are not required by law to label those foods as such. article

You can understand why we are a nation dependent on prescription drugs….. people are eating poison and treating it with more poison…. Quit eating poison!
