The research on genetically modified foods showed that, animals who are fed on the “advanced” crops appeared to have signs of organ damages within 3 months. The finds only come to light when a genetically modified manufacturer establish its raw data on safety tests by anti-GM campaigners.

A scientist said like that: “We have not find proof of toxicity, but we are sure the toxicity signs. Maybe it causes no acute harm, but who knows there are no chronic harm?”

According to the research, two of the varieties contained genes for the Bt protein which protects the plant against the corn borer pest, while a third was genetically modified to be resistant to the weedkiller glyphosate. All three strains are widely grown in America, while one is the only GM crop grown in Europe, mostly in Spain.

According to the experiment, rats which ate the GM maize had ' statistically significant' signs of liver and kidney damage. Each strain was linked to unusual concentrations of hormones in the blood and urine of rats fed the maize for three months, compared to rats given a non-GM diet. The result is the former rats show a less kidney and liver functions than that of latter rats. In addition, the female rats fed GM foods also indicated high fatty substances levels and high blood sugar levels.

The analysis concluded: 'These substances have never before been an integral part of the human or animal diet and therefore their health consequences for those who consume them, especially over long time periods are currently unknown.'

If you happen to be a kidney disease patients, you are not suggested to try Genetically Modified Foods, without the permission of your dietitian.
