So here's news of some negative effects observed from the consumption of genetically modified corn. It's not proof, yet. But it sure does make me interested in seeing more research into the impact of long-term consumption. Watch closely for more news regarding the safety, or lack thereof, in genetically engineered crops.
Le Monde | Study Proves Three Monsanto Corn Varieties' Noxiousness to the Organism
Le Monde (Translation: Leslie Thatcher): "A study published in the International Journal of Biological Sciences demonstrates the toxicity of three genetically modified corn varieties from the American seed company Monsanto, the Committee for Independent Research and Information on Genetic Engineering (Criigen, based in Caen), which participated in that study, announced Friday, December 11."
By the way, I'm not against genetic engineering. It's a terrific science. But you must be VERY careful with it, or extremely bad things can happen. People are not being nearly careful enough, for the usual human reason that they can make more money the sloppy way.
