Scientists Debate New Study on GMO-Fed Pigs

GE and Your Health

Science commentators involved in the genetically modified food debate have weighed in on a new study that says pigs fed genetically modified grains suffered a higher rate of severe stomach inflammation and developed heavier uteri.

Some experts have said the study shows evidence of a problem that warrants further study, while others have dismissed it as alarmist “junk science.” While stoking old flames, the study also highlights difficulties researchers face when patent-holders deny access to genetically modified (GM) seeds for studying.

OK, everyone have a seat and take a few deep breaths. Go to your calming place. Ready? Good. Because I’m about to talk about a new study that suggests that eating genetically modified crops might not be the best thing for us.

GM CROP COULD CAUSE LIVER FAILURE: SCIENTIST

GE and Your Health

SUMMARY: "In his report on GM wheat that is expected to be released today, New Zealand genetics lecturer Jack Heinemann, from the University of Canterbury, said the CSIRO's technology suppressed an enzyme in the wheat which was similar to the human enzyme that produces glycogen. [...] The CSIRO yesterday revealed it had received approval from the Office of the Gene Technology Regulator for two field trials of wheat and barley with altered starch composition. The latest crop had been planted in the ACT in June."

GM VACCINES NOW POSE BIG THREAT

SUMMARY: "The Meeting of Parties to the Cartagena Protocol in Hyderabad has been discussing safety issues pertaining to living modified organisms for the past two days. Experts warned that there are possibilities of new viruses arising through recombination of the naturally-occurring relatives of genetically modified vaccines in the same ecosystem. It may be recalled that in clinical trails in 2010, four girls died in Khammam district after they were given the Human Papilloma Virus vaccine, a recombinant DNA-based vaccine to prevent cervical cancer.

GM CORN VARIETY ’CANNOT BE REGARDED AS SAFE’: DR GILLES-ERIC SéRALINI HITS BACK AT CRITICS

GE and Your Health

SUMMARY: "The team of researchers who caused uproar when they claimed a variety of genetically modified corn causes cancer has insisted the crop ‘cannot be regarded as safe’. Leading scientists lined up to condemn the study after it was published two months ago, saying it lacked scientific rigour and had made a series of basic errors. Russia banned the import of the corn and a group of six French scientific institutions carried out an investigation which accused the study authors of playing on public fears to hype their own reputations.
