Study Links Monsanto GM Corn to Organ Failure
A new study claims to have uncovered new health effects caused by
genetically modified corn from the agricultural giant Monsanto. The
International Journal of Biological Sciences says GM corn helped cause
organ damage in rats. The study¹s author called Monsanto¹s GM methods ³a
very serious mistake, dramatic for public health.²
A Comparison of the Effects of Three GM Corn Varieties on Mammalian
We present for the first time a comparative analysis of blood and organ
system data from trials with rats fed three main commercialized
genetically modified (GM) maize (NK 603, MON 810, MON 863), which are
present in food and feed in the world. . . Effects were mostly
associated with the kidney and liver, the dietary detoxifying organs,
although different between the 3 GMOs. Other effects were also noticed
in the heart, adrenal glands, spleen and haematopoietic system. We
conclude that these data highlight signs of hepatorenal toxicity,
possibly due to the new pesticides specific to each GM corn. In
addition, unintended direct or indirect metabolic consequences of the
genetic modification cannot be excluded.
These results seem to be consistent with the results that Arpad Pusztai
found in 1996.
