GE and Your Health

Scientists have identified major molecular differences between a GMO corn and its non-GMO parent.

A unique new study published on December 19 in the scientific journal Nature has used molecular profiles to reveal major differences in composition between a GMO corn and its non-GMO parent. These findings question industry and regulatory position of “substantial equivalence” and have serious safety implications.

GE and Your Health

Findings contradict reassuring reports on GM products, say researchers

Rats fed GM Bt corn MON810 for only 90 days suffered serious damage to the surface mucous membranes of the jejunum (part of the small intestine), according to a new study.[1]

The type of corn fed to the rats was MON810: Ajeeb YG, a GM version of Ajeeb, a locally adapted variety of corn grown in Egypt. MON810: Ajeeb YG was developed by Monsanto for the Egyptian market. The GM-fed rats ate a diet containing 30% of MON810: Ajeeb YG corn. Control rats were fed the same amount of non-GM corn.

Fatty Liver disease and glyphosate

Cutting-edge molecular profiling analyses reveal that the popular weedkiller Roundup causes liver damage at doses permitted by regulators. Report: Claire Robinson

The weedkiller Roundup causes non-alcoholic fatty liver disease at very low doses permitted by regulators worldwide, a new peer-reviewed study shows. The study is the first ever to show a causative link between consumption of Roundup at a real-world environmentally relevant dose and a serious disease.

SUMMARY: "Iowa State University researchers are moving ahead with a long-delayed project in which a dozen students will be paid to eat genetically modified bananas."

Iowa State University researchers are moving ahead with a long-delayed project in which a dozen students will be paid to eat genetically modified bananas.

The Des Moines Register reports that the bananas were created by an Australian scientist and have a gene that's supposed to help people living in Africa make vitamin A. The participants would be paid $900 each.

UK: WHY WE'RE TUCKING INTO MORE HEALTHY FOOD & GOING GM-FREE

GE and Your Health

SUMMARY: "Among the various predicted food trends for 2016, one is of special interest for anyone interested in the genetically modified organisms (GMO) debate, especially those who don’t quite get why opting out of growing genetically modified crops, as Scotland has chosen to do along with 18 other EU countries and counting, chimes with the global zeitgeist.
