GMOs threat to fertility

Auto Date Thursday, November 27th, 2008

A long-term feeding study published on November 12, 2008 commissioned by the Austrian Agency for Health and Food Safety, managed by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Health, Family and Youth, and carried out by Veterinary University Vienna, confirms genetically engineered corn seriously affects reproductive health in mice.

Non-GMO advocates, who have warned about this infertility link along with other health risks, now seek an immediate ban of all GE foods and GE crops to protect the health of humankind and the fertility of women around the world.

Feeding mice with genetically modified corn developed by Monsanto led to lower fertility and body weight, according to the study conducted by the University of Veterinary Medicine in Vienna.

Lead author of the study Professor Zentek said there was a direct link between the decrease in fertility and the GE diet, and that mice fed with non-GE corn reproduced more efficiently.
