Europe-wide ban on Monsanto GM corn imminent in wake of French study linking it to cancer

(NaturalNews) Pending affirmation by its national health agency, France is expected to call for an official ban on Monsanto's genetically-modified (GM) corn very soon "at a European level," according to the French news source RFI. Following the recent release of a University of Caen study that found a link between the "Frankencorn" and the development of severe tumors in rats, French officials have been urging a Europe-wide ban on both the cultivation and import of the GM corn, which was never proven safe in the first place prior to its commercial release.

The study, which was published in the peer-reviewed journal Food and Chemical Toxicology, revealed for the first time that rats fed Monsanto's NK603 GM corn treated with Roundup (glyphosate) herbicide for longer than 90 days developed deadly tumors at a much higher, and much quicker, rate than rats not exposed to these products. Similar health consequences were observed in rats fed NK603 GM corn without Roundup, as well as in rats exposed to just Roundup, revealing more about the true toxicity of these two highly-pervasive food technologies.

Why no msm news re GMO corn/French study?

Thanks, emalvini. I hope people will pass on the information to family and friends. It's amazing to me how little Americans know about this issue. I just did a google search and found nothing in the msm. Well, maybe I missed something. And, admittedly, I only checked:

The New York Times
Washington Post
LA Times

The negative reaction to this study was mentioned in your post on the Russian rat reality show. Glad to see the Europeans are planning to DO somethinga about it. P.S. I'm sorry more people didn't see that other post. http://www.dailypaul.com/256893/rat-reality-show

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
