Thanks for posting this. I have noticed a LOT of awareness about the problems on GMO's recently on many sites. I am hopeful that there be enough awareness to at least have them labeled properly!

“Safe” Levels of Round-Up Weedkiller and GM Corn Found to Cause Tumours and Multiple Organ Damage

New peer-reviewed research published today shows the results of the first animal feeding trial into the life-time exposure of Roundup tolerant GM corn and Roundup, the world’s best selling weed killer.  The study, published online by the scientific journal, Food and Chemical Toxicology, shows that levels currently considered safe can cause mammary tumours, kidney and liver damage, in laboratory rats.

 

The study was led by molecular biologist and endocrinologist, Professor Gilles-Eric Seralini of the University of Caen in France and was supported by the independent research organization, CRIIGEN. The researchers used 200 rats that were fed a diet containing the Roundup tolerant GM maize, NK603, or given water containing Roundup, at levels permitted in drinking water and GM crops in the US.  It showed that these rats developed tumours faster and died earlier than rats fed on a standard diet.

Patrick Holden believes there is an urgent need for more research into both the wide spread use of pesticides and the consumption of GM food crops.  He says, “The implications of this research suggest potential flaws in the current regulatory process which, due to the short-duration of the required feeding-trials, may fail to identify the serious, long-term health consequences of consuming these crops. To ensure that the public is protected against potential exposure, there is a need to review the regulatory framework, and to undertake further research into potentially similar health impacts of these crops on humans.”
