Study Concludes Three Monsanto GM Corn Varieties Toxic to Mammals

The Committee for Independent Research and Information on Genetic Engineering participated in a study published in the International Journal of Biological Sciences which demonstrates the toxicity in mammals of three genetically modified corn varieties from Monsanto.

Researchers concluded that these three GMOs (GM maize NK 603, MON 810, and MON 863) are not safe enough to be distributed commercially because the kidneys and liver in rats displayed toxicity levels when exposed to all three GM corn varieties. Other effects were also noticed in the heart, adrenal glands, spleen and haematopoietic system.

Smith adds that with MON 810 corn, “they found that there was a gene that is normally silent that is switched on and now creates an allergen in corn. They found 43 different genes that were significantly up-regulated or down-regulated, meaning that there’s massive changes in these crops and they’re not being evaluated by the U.S.—by the FDA or any other regulatory authority around the world before being put onto the market.”

The Telegraph reports that in other newly released cables, US diplomats around the world are found to have pushed GM crops as a strategic government and commercial imperative.

The above excerpt from is disturbing but worth knowing. The corn that gets mixed in to nearly all processed foods, including baby foods, has significant genes modified, and no research exists on whether the corn is safe. Animals who eat it get problems in kidney and liver function. If you’re pregnant, those are the systems that keep your womb free of toxins. If you’re hoping to conceive, those systems help to lower toxins enough for you to conceive.

Other problems with GMO corn include changes in heart, adrenal glands and spleen.

The time has never been better to cut corn out of your diet. Do it for yourself and for your children.
