Show Animals Fed `GM' Grains Develop Wide Range of Odd Illnesses
By Ethan Huff
the animal studies that have been conducted on genetically
modified (GM) products, some noteworthy findings have been
discovered by researchers:
rats fed genetically modified food saw most of their babies
die within three weeks compared to the 10% death rate experienced
by rats fed natural soy. The babies that survived in the
genetically modified-fed control group were also born smaller
and had problems getting pregnant later on.
rats fed genetically modified soy experienced a change in
testicular color from pink to dark blue, as well as altered
sperm and significant changes in their reproductive systems.
buffalo that consumed genetically modified cottonseed experienced
various birthing complications including infertility, abortions,
premature delivery, and prolapsed uteruses.Many of the calves
that survived birth died shortly thereafter.
the United States, about 24 farmers reported that their
pigs became sterile after consuming genetically modified
modified corn and cotton, purposely engineered to create
their own built-in pesticide called Bt (Bacillus thuringiensis),
have been indicted in several studies to provoke intense
allergic and immune reactions and death. Since the levels
of Bt produced in the plant represent thousands of times
more a concentration of Bt than natural Bt spray, the effects
are greatly amplified. Shepherds whose sheep grazed on Bt
cotton after harvest witnessed thousands of their sheep
die. Postmortem examinations revealed severe irritation
and black patches in the intestines and liver, as well as
enlarged bile ducts. All sheep fed the Bt cotton eventually
died within 30 days while those that grazed on natural cotton
corn was also responsible for the deaths of cows, horses,
water buffaloes, and chicken in both Germany and the Philippines.
modified tomatoes fed to rats were shown to cause bleeding
stomachs and eventually killed many of the rats.
are just a few examples of the many catastrophic effects
of using genetically modified organisms as food.
