*Shocking* Findings in New *GMO* Study: Rats Fed Lifetime of GM Corn Grow Horrifying Tumors, 70% of Females Die Early

Eating genetically modified corn (GM corn) and consuming trace levels of Monsanto's Roundup chemical fertilizer caused rats to develop horrifying tumors, widespread organ damage, and premature death. That's the conclusion of a shocking new study...

First, I want to point out that according to the article 'we are both mammals' and I like to think that's a typo; Both humans and rats are animals; Humans are at the top of the list because we are able to communicate verbally, or type our thoughts as I'm doing now. That's not to say that dogs or cats can't type; Lord knows they have the intelligence!! But, yes, we need to ban GMO foods!! Thnx for posting, Bianca.

Monsanto must be stopped before it's too late to turn around the damage they've done to mother nature..

Study On Monsanto Genetically Modified Corn Draws Skepticism

Very scary. And yet Monsanto would want us to believe that GM foods are just as safe! While giving us studies they did on their own products that cut out a lot of facts, don't do the necessary procedures, or completely ignore worrying data trends.

I just read and commented on a similar article --with the difference being that it didn't include photos of the rats used in the experiments. I commented that I didn't care whether or not they used Roundup or genetically modified corn on rats, but that products intended for human consumption should be appropriately labeled so that consumers could make a choice. Now that I've seen the rats, I don't think anyone or anything should be exposed to these products!!!

Thanks for this article.. Noted.. I must add that I did notice that the study was to study the effects of not only GM grain but also ROUND UP.. Now, having kept rats for many years when my children were at home, I learned that they have such a high metabolic rate that they often develop horrible tumours as their cells divide too quickly and will produce tumours even when fed on a good natural diet. For this reason I consider that experiments on rats are not accurate enough to justify using rats in the testing of drugs reactions and toxic reactions on humans. They should not be used AT ALL. ans the results are not accurate. I am co nvinced that is why so many substnaces, when declared safe when having been tested on animals are in reality, producing terrilble effects on humans. I found that one set of rats that we had, all of a sudden, although thiey had not been interbred, were exhibbiting an abnormal amount of tumours and the only thing that I could find out that was different was that I had fed them grass from a source that I never usually used, whihc I found out later had been sprayed by a farmer who had been using a stong sulutions of Round Up. Here in Autralia, they advocate that after a few days there is no residual poison in the grass or in the ground... Do I belive that??? I will give you two guesses!

Excellent article Bianca - sorry the compute wouldn't let me send you another green star yet. I completely agree -and Bt toxins have been found in all sections of Society from Monsanto's poisons in GMOs in Canadian studies - and this is as bad. See for more info on GMOs - terrifying!!!

Also we don't have to eat corn to absorb these - High Fructose Corn Syrup is derived from corn - most of it coming from GMO corn - so it can be secretly in drinks, baked goods etc etc etc... we will all be infected without even knowing it.

This news is horrifying although not surprising. My heart breaks for those lab rats. There is no need to use animals for testing. They have shown that human cells work just as well if not better for testing!

I think Monsanto's motto is "That which doesn't kill outright you makes you a human guinea pig!" Or maybe "Artificial food is ALMOST edible" ?..:(

Fabulous comments everyone! I haven't been able to send everyone green stars becase Care2 just randomly bounces me out of my account when I try. But if I could, I'd send you all green, pink, yellow and purple stars too!

While things are working well and I can upload a comment, I thought you might be interested in this too:

Love fresh corn on the cob, but the last time I bought some, and ate it, I got really sick. No more, even if it's local. But much of the corn crops in the US were seriously affected by the drought. I feel for the poor rats and think the point has been proven. Hopefully they won't torture anymore animals to prove what we already know. Thank you

Wondering if you are at risk?
Breakfast cereals most likely to contain Monsanto's GM corn... Remember those poor rats?
