There has been a flood of institutional researchers who have cast some serious doubt on the reported link between GMO corn and cancer.
In fact, if the research is a poorly executed as described by numerous academics, and is from a research team which a has been said to have
misrepresented findings before; it's a wonder it passed a peer review process at all.
So weak is the case, based upon recent reporting, that I am finding myself questioning whether it was released specifically so it could be rebuked by
the scientific community, thus locking in the GMO "brand" as vindicated.
This sample size is too small to rule out statistical quirks, especially as the rats were of the "Sprague-Dawley" laboratory strain, which is
notoriously susceptible to mammary tumours, said Maurice Moloney, research director at Britain's Rothamsted agricultural research station.
"The first thing that leaps to my mind is why has nothing emerged from epidemiological studies in the countries where so much GM has been in the food
chain for so long" Mark Tester, a professor at the Australian Centre for Plant Functional Genomics, University of Adelaide, told the news site Science
"If the effects are as big as purported, and if the work really is relevant to humans, why aren't the North Americans dropping like flies?! GM has
been in the food chain for over a decade over there—and longevity continues to increase inexorably."
It seems all the stops are being pulled out on refuting these findings.
Americans can be assured that if it's edible, and it's been advertised on television or any main stream media... it either has GMO ingredients or is
completely GMO-based. While our average health is in decline, and our obesity levels are almost out of control... it makes me wonder.... (I also
note that several European nations have noted an obesity epidemic int heir midst... coincidentally after
the introduction or permission to use
one GMO product or another.)
