The first long term study on Glyphosate and GMO corn has been published Sept 19 and the results are sickening and shocking. Virtually all of the poor lab rats subjected to this experiment were found to be diseased in some way over their lifespan, with, for instance, 70% of females developing breast cancer! This stuff is so widespread in use that in most countries it is spread totally throughout the foodchain, The WHO has no guidelines for its use, yet miniscule amounts as little as 50 nanograms per liter of water are shown to cause diseases in this study. In the area where we live, planes are spraying the herbicide regularly and most of the crops are GMO.
So far Monsanto has not responded to the findings, however, Facebook users are being blocked from making references to this study!
But scientist Joel Spiroux has called for new rules on GM foods:
“Current regulation tests are conducted over three months, but the really serious diseases, such as the death of rats due to tumors, occur only in the fourth month,” said Spiroux.
“Therefore these tests give no real information about the effects of genetically modified food on health over a lifetime.”
