Genetically Modified Corn

Genetically Modified corn or GM corn or Round Up Ready corn was in the news this week.  A French study using 200 albino Sprague-Dawley rats that ate GM corn was just released which suggested that eating Monsanto’s GM corn causes cancerous tumors. “Six groups – three male and three female – were fed Monsanto GM maize with Roundup weed killer consisting of 11 percent of their diet, 22 percent or 33 percent. Six other groups were given Monsanto GM maize in the same percentage amounts, but had no Roundup sprayed on them. Another six groups were given Roundup weed killer in their water similar to the levels found in U.S. tap water. The remaining two groups acted as control groups and were fed non-genetically modified maize and water without Roundup weed killer.”
