A new study from Australia sheds some light on the damaging affects of genetically modified (GM) foods. Over a period of just 22.7 weeks 168 piglets, split into two groups, were either given GM corn and soy or non-GM corn and soy. Both were kept under identical housing and feeding conditions. At the end of the study there was no difference between the two groups in weight, how long they lived, or routine blood chemistry. However there was a four-fold increase in severe stomach inflammation among the male piglets fed GM corn and soy vs the male piglets fed non-GM corn and soy. There was a 2.2 fold increase in severe stomach inflammation among the female piglets fed GM corn and soy verses the female piglets fed non-GM corn and soy. There are many other studies pointing to the negative effects of GM foods. Once again I believe it is quite clear that the more we mess with mother nature the worse it will turn out.
