Monsanto corn causes kidney and liver toxicity

A type of genetically modified corn, produced by Monsanto, has proven to cause kidney and liver toxicity as well as hormonal changes in animals; this corn, MON863, was approved for human consumption in 2006.

Here are just some of the findings:

Male rats lost 3.3 percent of their body weight and their internal dietary chemistry was disturbed. Female rats lost 3.7 percent of their body weight and their triglycerides increased 24 to 40 percent. Triglycerides are fat deposits in the blood stream.

Again, this corn was approved for human consumption.

Approved in the United States, Canada, China, the E.U., Japan, Mexico and The Phillipines.

Feel sick yet?

Well, if you eat Monsanto corn, you just might!
