GMO corn linked to organ failure

Leave a comment

Join the fight against Monsanto:  three varieties of their genetically modified corn are now linked with organ failure in rats, when consumed longer than 90 days.

“our data strongly suggests that these GM maize varieties induce a state of hepatorenal toxicity…”

More information here.

Update: A friend of mine pointed out that the toxicity in the rats could have been due to the pesticides, not the GMOs, a good point.  There are still many, many other things about GMOs to get nervous about.
