Animal Organ Damage Data Raises Level Of Concern Over Monsanto’s GM Corn

January 21, 2010: 08:22 AM EST

Animals fed on three strains of genetically modified (GM) corn created by Monsanto showed signs of liver and kidney damage after three months, according to safety test data released by the company after legal challenges from Greenpeace and other concerned organizations. A French researcher took a look at the data and concluded that more studies were needed to determine whether long-term organ damage was possible. “What we've shown is clearly not proof of toxicity, but signs of toxicity," the scientist magazine said. "I'm sure there's no acute toxicity but who's to say there are no chronic effects?"
