In a study released by the International Journal of Biological Sciences, test animals fed Monsanto’s GMO corn experienced organ damage and in some cases failure. Bad news for a crop that Monsanto has high hopes of generating billions of dollars of revenue.
Monsanto’s own scientists tested these GMO corn seeds for a short period and, of course, found no known health risk to humans, animals or the environment. But the European research scientists and authors of this report were compelled to do their own research because they believed Monsanto’s research methodology to be flawed. And apparently they fought like hell to get Monsanto to disclose it’s research parameters and findings.
“Our study contradicts Monsanto conclusions because Monsanto systematically neglects significant health effects in mammals that are different in males and females eating GMOs, or not proportional to the dose. This is a very serious mistake, dramatic for public health. This is the major conclusion revealed by our work, the only careful reanalysis of Monsanto crude statistical data.”

Of course, Monsanto has countered the study claiming it too is flawed.
