Its results are published in The Food & Chemical Toxicology Journal in New York. Here, experts discuss the significance of the alarming findings.

  • The next step is to do trials that include generational feeding of GM maize and Roundup. In one study on hamsters by the third generation the animals were sterile and could not reproduce at all..

  • Gip : By "so called experts", are you referring to Dr. Michael Antoniou who just happens to hold a BA degree in Biochemistry, a PHD, serves as Head of Nuclear Biology at Kings Colllege, and who also holds the title of "ReReader in Molecular Genetics, Gene Expression and Therapy Group, Department of Medical and Molecular Genetics at King's College" ? ? ?

  • Isn't science wonderful when it supports our intuitive beliefs?

    But this finding is "sweating the small stuff" because we are ignoring what science also has to say about the Global Warming, a less popular or intuitive conclusion.

    Looking forward to the next experiment to link Frankenstein food to the c-word with sufficient sigmas to convince the rest of us.

  • This is not the first study that concluded that these things are dangerous. The very first study came out of Monsanto and was suppressed. Stop disparaging those that are telling the truth GIP.
