A group of French researchers have conducted a study which reveals evidence that consumption of Monsanto modified corn is tightly connected to organ failure. The study released by the International Journal of Biological Studies analysed the effects of Monsanto corn on mammalian health, specifically rats.
The research was conducted in controlled environments where all variables were accounted for. They tested three main genetically modified (GM) corns which can be found in food and feed consumed by animals and humans alike around the world. The GM corns were: NK 603, MON 810 and MON 863. All have already been approved for consumption by US, European and other national food authorities around the world.
The corns mentioned above have been specifically engineered to synthesise their own chemicals (Bt toxins) to be used as insecticides. After initial research accounting for all factors ( sex, diet, doses, feeding etc.) the results came as no surprise in regards to Monsanto’s already dodgy track record of health concerns.
Organ failure specifically in relation to the kidney and liver were discovered as were induced symptoms of Hepatorenal Syndrome. There were also other effects on the heart, adrenal, spleen and blood cells which were discovered after consumption.
The results from the researchers in correlation to Monsanto’s own personal research, differed greatly. Monsanto has already conducted similar tests to the ones in this released report though there is a considerable lack data missing from the results. Within the results there is also a neglect of health effects between male and female consumers as well as the results being disproportionate to doses.
Monsanto’s clumsy research also does not focus on long term research when releasing new GM plants. Without long term research on the effects of consuming GMO’s it can pose an unmitigated threat detrimental to the health of ourselves and animals. In conclusion to these results, the study’s authors call for a long term study to better understand the effects of consuming these products.
The corporation Monsanto itself has responded to these findings in the usual manner, of denying the research and stating that the research is: “based on faulty analytical methods and reasoning and do not call into question the safety findings for these products.” Make of that as you may.
