Submission + - Study links GMO corn with organ failure in rats (

DiscountBorg(TM) writes: Although Monsanto's own studies found no adverse effects from the consumption of their genetically modified corn, their studies were limited to effects found over a period of 90 days of consumption. A recent study published in the International Journal of Biological Sciences analyzes long-term effects in rats and found a link to liver and kidney failure, along with effects on the heart and spleen, amidst other things. Monsanto disagrees with their findings.
