Why You Should Really Think Twice About Eating GMO Corn. Top View of Fully developed GMO Corn Maize Ear with golden seed on wooden background Photo Credit: igor.stevanovic A unique new study published on December 19 in the scientific journal Nature has used molecular profiles to reveal major differences in composition between a GMO corn and its non-GMO parent.

Why You Should Really Think Twice About Eating GMO Corn

These findings question industry and regulatory position of “substantial equivalence” and have serious safety implications. The new peer-reviewed study led by Dr. Michael Antoniou at King’s College London describes the effects of the process of genetic engineering on the composition of a genetically modified Roundup-resistant GMO corn variety, NK603. “Our study clearly shows that the GM transformation process results in profound compositional differences in NK603, demonstrating that this GMO corn is not substantially equivalent to its non-GMO counterpart. Background to study Analytical methods used Findings Conclusions Relevance to health.

EPA Used Monsanto’s Research to Give Roundup a Pass. THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY concluded in June that there was “no convincing evidence” that glyphosate, the most widely used herbicide in the U.S. and the world, is an endocrine disruptor.

EPA Used Monsanto’s Research to Give Roundup a Pass

On the face of it, this was great news, given that some 300 million pounds of the chemical were used on U.S. crops in 2012, the most recent year measured, and endocrine disruption has been linked to a range of serious health effects, including cancer, infertility, and diabetes. Monsanto, which sells glyphosate under the name Roundup, certainly felt good about it. Glyphosate-based herbicides are toxic and endocrine disruptors in human cell lines.

Hawaii Sees 10 Fold Increase in Birth Defects After Becoming GM Corn Testing Grounds

Over the past five years, the number of severe heart malformations has risen to more than ten times the national rate, according to an analysis by local physicians. Pediatrician Carla Nelson, after seeing four of these defects in three years, is extremely concerned with the severe health anomalies manifesting in the local population. Nelson, as well as a number of other local doctors, find themselves at the center of a growing controversy about whether the substantial increase in severe illness and birth defects in Waimea stem from the main cash crop on four of the six islands, genetically modified corn, which has been altered to resist pesticide. Hawaii has historically been used as a testing ground for almost all GMO corn grown in the United States. According to a report in The Guardian:

DOCTORS AND NURSES LETTERS TO MAYOR. Aloha Mayor Carvalho, As a doctor practicing on the west side, when I received news of the County Council’s passage of Bill 2491, I was elated.

DOCTORS AND NURSES LETTERS TO MAYOR

The bill, though only a partial version of the original, was a good first step that showed how the voices of medical professionals could help policymakers understand the dire need for pesticide disclosure by the companies whose vast fields surround this community. Many doctors of the west side, including obstetricians and pediatricians, met with several Council Members during the course of deliberation over Bill 2491. We shared our experiences and concerns with them over rates of diseases, noticeable aberrations in certain birth defects incidences, and helped them to understand the absolute need for disclosure in our ability to deliver better patient care. I strongly urge you to sign this bill into law. The people’s voice and the medical community’s voice must count when the County engages in lawmaking. Living With GMOs.

WASHINGTON, July 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- A new study published today in the peer-reviewed journal AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES reveals genetic engineering of soy disrupts the plant's natural ability to control stress, and invalidates the FDA's current regulatory framework of "substantial equivalence" used for approval of genetically engineered food (GMOs).

Journal of American Science 2012;8(9) New Study: GMO Corn Makes Rats Infertile. Credit: LiveScience.com Whether you question the safety of GMOs or think the public is concerned about nothing, a recent study will definitely cause you to reconsider your stance. A new study released by Egyptian scientists has concluded that rats fed a GMO diet suffer from infertility, among other health issues. Researchers from the Food Technology Department, Faculty of Agriculture, Department of Anatomy and Embryology, and Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Suez Canal University, Ismailia, Egypt found that quite a few unappealing changes took place when rats were fed genetically modified corn.

Because the rats’ organs/body weight and serum biochemistry were altered, potential adverse health and toxic effects were recorded.
