GMOs Cause Tumors, Organ Damage, and Premature Death in Rats

Are you avoiding consuming genetically modified food (GMOs)? If not, you may want to reconsider if you want to avoid premature death!

If you've ever wondered if you should be concerned about trying to avoid genetically modified food (GMOs), this should be of great concern to you.

A new study shows that Monsanto's Roundup herbicide and genetically modified corn cause tumors and organ damage in rats.

The reason that small amounts of Roundup was fed to the rats is that GMO corn is designed to be immune to Roundup and the corn fields are given a considerable application of Roundup to keep away competing weeds.  The Roundup then gets into the water supply.

About 70% of the processed food in supermarkets contain GMOs.

Your have a great Web Site. Glad you have documented the GMO test results. I wrote this in response. I am sorry I don't do facebook. I am glad to see others are talking about this very important issue. Does GMO stand for “God Move Over”?

Hi Joan: Thanks for posting that link and your comments. It appears that much of the decline of the health of Americans over the past two decades can be directly linked to GMO consumption! That is why California Proposition 37 to label GMO containing products is so important to our future health!

Yes, especially consumption of so called vegetable oils like Canola. Also, a carbohydrate based fat-free diet which has all nutrition processed out and all the sugar left or added has caused untold health problems. Keep up telling the public and spread the word.
