First study on long term effects of GM corn causes shocking tumors and 70% early death in female rats

Mustafa Djamgoz, professor of Cancer Biology at Imperial College, London, said the findings relating to eating GM corn were a surprise.

‘We are what we eat,’ he added. ‘I work at the molecular level on cancer. There is evidence what we eat affects our genetic make-up and turns genes on and off.

‘We are not scaremongering here. More research is warranted.’


You may find yourself thinking it is absolutely astonishing that no such studies were ever conducted before GM corn was approved for widespread use by the USDA and FDA, but such is the power of corporate lobbying and corporate greed.

The study was published in The Food & Chemical Toxicology Journal and was just presented at a news conference in London.

Here is the link for all of the criticisms and response from Seralini: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0278691512...

These rats are prone to tumors. All 7 of my rats died within 2-3 years and by the end of their lives accumulated a few tumors. Seralini is a guy TRYING to discredit GMOs. I'm not in favor of Monsanto or DuPont, monocultures, and the like, but I am in favor of science that HELPS mankind. Why are people so freaked out if a gene that produces beta-kerotene comes from some other organism? Kids are going BLIND because their staples are lacking. We share many of our genes with other organisms, they are just different combinations of A-Ts and G-Cs. If you do not want gm foods grow your own garden like I'm (horribly) trying to do. I've been eating GM foods for years and I feel Great! People get cancer, it's a sad reality, but it did not start when GMOs came on the market.
