WARNING!!! Graphic images…..sorry my animal lovers, but we need to know..

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? 

Here is a chart to 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……

  1. Until the public really wakes up and begins to make choices that may cost them a few more pennies per item, I’m afraid nothing is going to change. One of our California Propositions is intended to demand labeling all GMO foods…the spin and outright lies in the oppositional campaigning simply proves the power of the Big M. I don’t think it’s going to pass. I have a phone app for a non gmo shopping guide, courtesy of the Non GMO Project. It’s handy.

    I receive several newsletters from groups who have been working on this problem for a decade or more, but I don’t think I ever saw the grotesque photos. Of course, there will be the spin response. But I think it’s just a tragedy! Keep the conversation going! Debra

  2. Those photos & the research? EWWW
    Oh my gosh, I’d heard about the Monsanto thing with regard to patent licenses, but this GMO stuff is frightening. And federal government agencies and their regulations? Hostages of Political Action Committees. PACs are killing our country.

    THANK YOU for the info. So glad you have such a big following.
