Genetically Modified Corn Linked With Organ Damage

cornA new study has linked the genetically modified corn made by global agriculture giant Monsanto to liver and kidney failure. The Huffington Post reports that the results were announced by the International Journal of Biological Sciences. In addition to damaging the kidneys and liver, effects on “heart, adrenal, spleen and blood cells were also frequently noted.”

Three varieties of the corn are approved by food authorities for consumption in the United States (as well as other countries). Monsanto “gathered its own crude statistical data after conducting a 90-day study,” even though 90 days is too short a time for chronic health issues to emerge, “and concluded that the corn was safe for consumption.” Now that’s just good science.

  1. Those who aren't familiar with Monsanto should go on youtube and watch 'The World According to Monsanto” If ever there was a company serving absolutely no good purpose in society, it's Monsanto. I haven't seen or heard of any product that is healthy, supportive to the environment or beneficial in some way made by this atrocious outfit. I'm not an eco terrorist but if I were they would be close to the top of the hit list.
