Ok, people…..the GMO story has just gotten bigger.  We HAVE to do something…….but what???

Remember the post I did warning about GMO’s (genetically modified organism) in the past?  You can find that HERE. Then I did a little more sleuthing and wrote about it HERE.

WELL………HERE IS A WARNING!!! (via naturalnews.com   Mike Adams)

“Eating genetically modified corn (GM corn) and consuming trace levels of  Monsanto‘s Roundup chemical fertilizer caused rats to develop horrifying tumorswidespread organ damage, and premature death. That’s the conclusion of a  shocking new study that looked at the long-term effects of consuming  Monsanto’s genetically modified corn.

The study has been deemed “the most  thorough research ever published into the health effects of GM food crops and  the herbicide Roundup on rats.” News of the horrifying findings is spreading  like wildfire across the internet, with even the mainstream media seemingly in  shock over the photos of rats with multiple grotesque tumors… tumors so large  the rats even had difficulty breathing in some cases. GMOs may be the new  thalidomide.

“Monsanto Roundup weedkiller and GM maize implicated in  ‘shocking’ new cancer study” wrote The Grocery, a popular UK publication.  (http://www.thegrocer.co.uk/topics/technology-and-supply-chain/monsant…)

It  reported, “Scientists found that rats exposed to even the smallest amounts,  developed mammary tumors and severe liver and kidney damage as early as  four months in males, and seven months for females.”

The Daily  Mail reported, “Fresh row over GM foods as French study claims rats fed the  controversial crops suffered tumors.” (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2205509/Fresh-fears-GM-foods-French-study-finds-rats-fed-controversial-crops-suffered-tumours-multiple-organ-failure.html)

It  goes on to say: “The animals on the GM diet suffered mammary tumors, as well as  severe liver and kidney damage. The researchers said 50 percent of males and 70 percent of females died prematurely, compared with only 30 percent and  20 percent in the control group.”

The study, led by Gilles-Eric Seralini of the University of Caen, was the first ever study to examine the long-term (lifetime) effects of eating GMOs. You may find yourself thinking it is absolutely astonishing that no such studies were ever conducted before GM corn was approved for widespread use by the USDA and FDA, but such is the power of corporate lobbying and corporate greed.

The study was published in The Food & Chemical Toxicology Journal and was just presented at a news conference in London.

Findings from the study

Here are some of the shocking findings from the study:
• Up to 50% of males and 70% of females suffered premature death.
• Rats that drank trace amounts of Roundup (at levels legally allowed in the water supply) had a 200% to 300% increase in large tumors.
• Rats fed GM corn and traces of Roundup suffered severe organ damage including liver damage and kidney damage.
• The study fed these rats NK603, the Monsanto variety of GM corn that’s grown across North America and widely fed to animals and humans. This is the same corn that’s in your corn-based breakfast cereal, corn tortillas and corn snack chips.

The Daily Mail is reporting on some of the reaction to the findings:
France’s Jose Bove, vice-chairman of the European Parliament’s commission for agriculture and known as a fierce opponent of GM, called for an immediate suspension of all EU cultivation and import authorisations of GM crops. ‘This study finally shows we are right and that it is urgent to quickly review all GMO evaluation processes,’ he said in a statement. ‘National and European food security agencies must carry out new studies financed by public funding to guarantee healthy food for European consumers.’

The study is entitled, “A Comparison of the Effects of Three GM Corn Varieties on Mammalian Health.” Read the abstract here:

BOTTOM LINE…..How do you know if you are eating a genetically modified food?

The chart above can help you out…….but then read an article from the HERE FROM THE HUFFINGTON POST… this is just crazy….and I’m open to suggestions on what to do……
