This should be an interesting experiment. Russia have decided to their own experiment, but this time they will make it available for the public to
After a French study suggested that rats fed on Monsanto GMO corn suffered tumors, Russian researches plan their own, this time public,
experiment. The unique reality show with rats is expected to prove or deny GMO’s health-threatening influence.
The Russian scientists, who oppose genetically modified organisms (GMO) in food, expect that their year-long experiment will show whether the
controversial cultivation process has effects as dangerous as French revelations claimed on September 19.
And seemingly this experiment is going to be broadcast worldwide for all to see 24/7. They are installing webcams in the rat's cages - so if you want
to watch it will be available online.
The idea behind the test is to feed several groups of rats with different food. One group will be fed with soybeans and corn with a high content
of GMOs, while the other gets the same products, but with low GMO levels. The third will be given food with no GMO whatsoever, and the fourth with
standard rat food.
Well we shall all be able to see what the outcome will be, and we can make our own minds up about it... However, I do believe that the rat's given
the GMO food will have similar and if not more fatal diseases/illnesses like the rats in the French study showed, by the time this year long study is
over. Should this be the case, then every country should ban GMO products... Russia obviously will.
One things for sure, I do feel really sorry for those poor rats who have to go through the pain and suffering of being used in an experiment. I do not
agree with animal testing, however it seems that this is the only way we can do such research at this time..
