[GM = Genetically Modified, maize = corn]
In the first ever study to examine the long-term effects of Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller, or the NK603 Roundup-resistant GM maize also developed by Monsanto, scientists found that rats exposed to even the smallest amounts, developed mammary tumours and severe liver and kidney damage as early as four months in males, and seven months for females, compared with 23 and 14 months respectively for a control group.
Some 85% of maize grown in the US is GM, while 70% of processed foods contain GM ingredients without GM labelling. [emphasis added]
