GMO feed destroys pigs stomachs! Photo reveals severe damage caused by GM soy and corn


by Mike Adams

(NaturalNews) If you have stomach problems or gastrointestinal problems, a new study led by Dr. Judy Carman may help explain why: pigs fed a diet of genetically engineered soy and corn showed a 267% increase in severe stomach inflammation compared to those fed non-GMO diets. In males, the difference was even more pronounced: a 400% increase. (For the record, most autistic children are males, and nearly all of them have severe intestinal inflammation.)

The study was conducted on 168 young pigs on an authentic farm environment and was carried out over a 23-week period by eight researchers across Australia and the USA. The lead researcher, Dr. Judy Carman, is from the Institute of Health and Environmental Research in Kensington Park, Australia. The study has now been published in the Journal of Organic Systems, a peer-reviewed science journal.

The study is the first to show what appears to be a direct connection between the ingestion of GMO animal feed and measurable damage to the stomachs of those animals. Tests also showed abnormally high uterine weights of animals fed the GMO diets, raising further questions about the possibility of GMOs causing reproductive organ damage.

Proponents of corporate-dominated GMO plant science quickly attacked the study, announcing that in their own minds, there is no such thing as any evidence linking GMOs to biological harm in any animals whatsoever. And they are determined to continue to believe that, even if it means selectively ignoring the increasingly profound and undeniable tidal wave of scientific studies that repeatedly show GMOs to be linked with severe organ damage, cancer tumors and premature death.

“Adverse effects… toxic effects… clear evidence”

Lead author of the study Dr. Judy Carman stated, “We found these adverse effects when we fed the animals a mixture of crops containing three GM genes and the GM proteins that these genes produce. Yet no food regulator anywhere in the world requires a safety assessment for the possible toxic effects of mixtures. Our results provide clear evidence that regulators need to safety assess GM crops containing mixtures of GM genes, regardless of whether those genes occur in the one GM plant or in a mixture of GM plants eaten in the same meal, even if regulators have already assessed GM plants containing single GM genes in the mixture.”

I am trying to get our family off GMO food as much as I can. It's hard though. Luckily, I have a neighbor that grows organic grains.

After reading the study (as well as a few commentaries on it), the methodology and design are both poor (for example, more than half of the pigs were already sickly before the study, and the researchers didn't use reliable methods to measure inflammation; they just looked at the amount of redness). And the authors' conclusions don't match their data: mild and moderate "inflammation" was higher in the non-GMO fed pigs, as were heart abnormalities and liver problems, not to mention that more than half of the non-GMO fed pigs suffered severe "inflammation"... yet the conclusion only focuses on the "inflammation" in the GMO fed group. Probably because there was no clear hypothesis, just a predetermined conclusion regarding GMO feed. 

I'm not surprised that only an unknown, open-access journal would publish this study; this would never pass the peer review of a respected journal.

Sorry I don't believe GMO crops are going to help ANYONE other than those who produce the seed. They make those who purchase it sign agreements that they will not use seed from the crops for the next years crop, thereby forcing them to purchase more GMO seed each and every year. That also give the producer of the seed the ability to decide how much of each crop is grown, where and when.

It's really so great that a very few HUGE corporations are gaining more and more control over our food supply (completely sarcastic)
