When the US government ignored repeated warnings by its own scientists and allowed untested genetically modified (GM) crops into our environment and food supply, it was a gamble of unprecedented proportions. The health of all living things and all future generations were put at risk by an infant technology.

After two decades, physicians and scientists have uncovered a grave trend. The same serious health problems found in lab animals, livestock, and pets that have been fed GM foods are now on the rise in the US population. And when people and animals stop eating genetically modified organisms (GMOs), their health improves.

This seminal documentary provides compelling evidence to help explain the deteriorating health of Americans, especially among children, and offers a recipe for protecting ourselves and our future.

GM corn gave rats cancer, study finds

Genetically modified corn caused cancer in rats, a study has found.

The French government has ordered an investigation, possibly leading to EU intervention, after the study revealed rats that were fed one of the bestselling strains of genetically modified corn suffered tumours and multiple organ damage.

Scientists said the controversial French study, published today, raised serious questions about the safety of GM foods and the assurances offered by biotech companies and governments.

King's College molecular biologist and GM expert Michael Antoniou said he was shocked by the 'extreme negative health impacts'.

"It shows an extraordinary number of tumours developing earlier and more aggressively - particularly in female animals," Dr Antoniou said.

The research, at France's Caen University, looked at the impact of eating a GM diet over the two-year life of a rat. According to London's Daily Mail, all GM safety assessments to date had been based on rat feeding trials lasting only 90 days.

The corn was genetically modified to withstand spraying with glyphosate, the main chemical in the weedkiller Roundup, developed by Monsanto. The idea is that the corn can be sprayed without being damaged, while weeds are destroyed, the Daily Mail reports.

The tests looked at the impact of several scenarios including eating the Monsanto-produced GM corn (NK603), eating the GM corn sprayed with Roundup, and consuming Roundup at low doses in water.

The study found that between 50-80 per cent of female rats developed large tumours by the beginning of the 24th month, with up to three tumours per animal and up to 70 per cent of females died prematurely compared with only 20 per cent in the control group

Tumours in rats of both sexes fed the GM corn were two to three times larger than in the control group

The study, led by molecular biologist Professor Gilles-Eric Seralini, acritic of GM technology, and published in the US journal Food and Chemical Toxicology, states that the GM corn and Roundup weedkiller 'may cause hormonal disturbances in the same biochemical and physiological pathway'.

But Anthony Trewavas, professor of cell biology at Edinburgh University, questioned the way the research was conducted, saying the number of rats involved in the study - 200 - was too small to draw any meaningful conclusions.

"To be frank, it looks like randomvariation to me in a rodent line likely to develop tumours anyway," he said.

French Agriculture Minister Stephane Le Foll ordered an immediate probe.

"Depending on the investigation, the government will urge the European authorities to take all necessary measures to protect human and animal health," they said.

"(The measures) could go as far as invoking emergency suspension of imports of NK603 corn to Europe pending a re-examination of this product on the basis of enhanced assessment methods."

Green groups say the crops could be dangerous to health and the environment, although this claim has so far found no traction in large-scale studies.
In 2009, the European Food Safety Agency (EFA) panel on GM organisms determined that NK603 was "as safe as conventional maize".

Chil­dren born to par­ents who eat GM wheat may DIE before age five, warn sci­en­tists

Thurs­day, Sep­tem­ber 20, 2012 by: Ethan A. Huff, staff writer

(Nat­u­ral­News) Australia’s Com­mon­wealth Sci­en­tific and Indus­trial Research Orga­ni­za­tion (CSIRO) has devel­oped a novel vari­ety of genetically-​modified (GM) wheat that con­tains an altered pro­tein and enzyme-​suppressing mech­a­nism that some sci­en­tists are now say­ing could cause seri­ous prob­lems for the human liver. A recent report com­piled by sev­eral acclaimed experts in the field of genet­ics says that chil­dren born to par­ents who con­sume this GM wheat vari­ety could actu­ally end up dying before they reach the age of five.

This shock­ing rev­e­la­tion comes at the same time as CSIRO has announced that Australia’s Office of the Gene Tech­nol­ogy Reg­u­la­tor (OGTR) has granted the group approval for two field tri­als of both wheat and bar­ley that have been mod­i­fied in this untested way. Since the tech­nol­ogy directly inhibits an enzyme in wheat that is very closely linked to glyco­gen, a poly­sac­cha­ride pro­duced in the liver, con­sum­ing wheat or bar­ley that con­tains these genetic alter­ations will very likely lead to liver fail­ure, and even­tu­ally death.

“If this (tech­nol­ogy) silences the same sort of gene in us — as it silences in the wheat — then, well, chil­dren who are born with this enzyme not work­ing tend to die by the age of about five,” says Pro­fes­sor Judy Car­man, a bio­chemist and direc­tor of the IHER, Flinders Uni­ver­sity, who helped com­pile the report. “And adults with this prob­lem, just kind of get more and more sick, and more and more tired, until they get very, very ill indeed.”

Aus­tralian reg­u­la­tory author­i­ties approved field tri­als of deadly GM wheat with­out any evi­dence of safety

Car­man worked with both Michael Anto­niou, a mol­e­c­u­lar genet­ics expert from Kings Col­lege in Lon­don, and Prof. Jack Heine­mann, a Lec­turer in Genet­ics at the Uni­ver­sity of Can­ter­bury, to com­pile and present these very seri­ous con­cerns about the safety of CSIRO’s GM wheat for pub­lic and expert review. Accord­ing to Heine­mann, there is no evi­dence that CSIRO even con­sid­ered the fact that its GM wheat could obstruct glyco­gen pro­duc­tion, and OGTR was appar­ently uncon­cerned about this very seri­ous pos­si­bil­ity when it freely granted the group approval for field tri­als.

“What we found is that the mol­e­cules cre­ated in this wheat, intended to silence wheat genes, can match human genes,” said Heine­mann dur­ing a recent press con­fer­ence hosted by the Safe Food Foun­da­tion. “And through inges­tion, these mol­e­cules can enter human beings and poten­tially silence our genes.”

You can watch that press con­fer­ence here:

Cur­rently, CSIRO’s GM wheat has not been approved for com­mer­cial use, which means it is not being used in the food sup­ply at this time. But since Aus­tralian author­i­ties so eas­ily approved field tri­als for the “Franken­wheat” with­out demand­ing so much as a shred of evi­dence that it is safe for human con­sump­tion illus­trates just how eas­ily this genetic poi­son will also likely be foisted on the pub­lic with­out such evi­dence in the very near future.

“If CSIRO can­not pro­vide imme­di­ate and ade­quate responses to these issues, we call on them to cease all field tri­als cur­rently under­way, stop all plans for human feed­ing tri­als, and agree to under­take the rec­om­mended safety test­ing,” says Scott Kin­n­ear, Direc­tor of the Safe Food Foun­da­tion.
