New Study Links GMOS to Cancer, Liver/Kidney Damage & Severe Hormonal Disruption
ARJUN WALIA JULY 15, 2014
“The chronic toxicity study examined the health impacts on rats of eating commercialized genetically modified (GM) maize, alongside Monsanto’s NK603 glyphosate-based herbicide Roundup.
The study found severe liver and kidney damage as well as hormonal disturbances in rats fed with GM maize in conjunction with low levels of Roundup that were below those permitted in most drinking water across Europe. Results also indicated high rates of large tumors and mortality in most treatment groups.”
The republished study also has a section describing the lobbying efforts of GMO crop supporters to force the retraction of the original publication. This is scientific fraud at its best. The authors express how the previous retraction was “a historic example of conflicts of interest in the scientific assessments of products commercialized worldwide.”
Remember, some large and powerful corporations have spent a fortune on GMO technology. Thus, don’t underestimate or be surprised at the extent that they will go to protect that investment.
“This November, California voters will have an opportunity to vote on a simple, yet important ballot initiative called Prop 37 – the California Right to Know Act. If approved, it would require food sold in California supermarkets be clearly labeled if it has been genetically engineered.”
“Don’t be fooled by the corporate front group posing as a consumer rights coalition calling themselves the misleading “Coalition Against Costly Food Labeling Proposition” (CACFLP). Not a single legitimate consumer rights organization opposes Prop 37. It costs nothing to print a few words on a label indicating if the food produced was genetically engineered”.
There is no clearer admission of guilt than this opposition by these corporates.

Organ Failure, Study Reveals
“In a study released by the International Journal of Biological Sciences, [http://www.biolsci.org/] analyzing the effects of genetically modified foods on mammalian health, researchers found that agricultural giant Monsanto’s GM corn is linked to organ damage in rats.

Monsanto gathered its own crude statistical data after conducting a 90-day study, even though chronic problems can rarely be found after 90 days, and concluded that the corn was safe for consumption. The stamp of approval may have been premature, however.”
