Evidence of GMO harm in pig study

A groundbreaking new study [1] shows that pigs were harmed by the consumption of feed containing genetically modified (GM) crops.

GM-fed females had on average a 25% heavier uterus than non-GM-fed females, a possible indicator of disease that requires further investigation. Also, the level of severe inflammation in stomachs was markedly higher in pigs fed on the GM diet. The research results were striking and statistically significant.

Lead researcher Dr. Judy Carman, adjunct associate professor at Flinders University, Adelaide, Australia,[2] said: “Our findings are noteworthy for several reasons. First, we found these results in real on-farm conditions, not in a laboratory, but with the added benefit of strict scientific controls that are not normally present on farms.

“Second, we used pigs. Pigs with these health problems end up in our food supply. We eat them.

“Third, pigs have a similar digestive system to people, so we need to investigate if people are also getting digestive problems from eating GM crops.

“Fourth, we found these adverse effects when we fed the animals a mixture of crops containing three GM genes and the GM proteins that these genes produce. Yet no food regulator anywhere in the world requires a safety assessment for the possible toxic effects of mixtures. Regulators simply assume that they can’t happen.

“Our results provide clear evidence that regulators need to safety assess GM crops containing mixtures of GM genes, regardless of whether those genes occur in the one GM plant or in a mixture of GM plants eaten in the same meal, even if regulators have already assessed GM plants containing single GM genes in the mixture.”

The new study lends scientific credibility to anecdotal evidence from farmers and veterinarians, who have for some years reported reproductive and digestive problems in pigs fed on a diet containing GM soy and corn.[3]

Iowa-based farmer as well as crop and livestock advisor Howard Vlieger, one of the coordinators of the study, said: “For as long as GM crops have been in the feed supply, we have seen increasing digestive and reproductive problems in animals. Now it is scientifically documented.

“In my experience, farmers have found increased production costs and escalating antibiotic use when feeding GM crops. In some operations, the livestock death loss is high, and there are unexplained problems including spontaneous abortions, deformities of new-born animals, and an overall listlessness and lack of contentment in the animals.

“In some cases, animals eating GM crops are very aggressive. This is not surprising, given the scale of stomach irritation and inflammation now documented. I have seen no financial benefit to farmers who feed GM crops to their animals.”

The research was conducted by collaborating investigators from two continents and published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Organic Systems. The feeding study lasted more than five months, the normal commercial lifespan for a pig, and was conducted in the US. The pigs were slaughtered at the usual slaughter age of over 5 months, after eating the diets for their entire commercial lifespan.

Study details

168 newly-weaned pigs in a commercial piggery were fed either a typical diet incorporating GM soy and corn, or else (in the control group) an equivalent non-GM diet. The pigs were reared under identical housing and feeding conditions. They were slaughtered over 5 months later, at the usual slaughter age, after eating the diets for their entire commercial lifespan. They were then autopsied by qualified veterinarians who worked “blind” – they were not informed which pigs were fed on the GM diet and which were from the control group.

The GMO feed mix was a commonly used mix. The GM and non-GM diets contained the same amount of soy and corn, except that the GM diet contained a mixture of three GM genes and their protein products, while the control (non-GM) diet had equivalent non-GM ingredients. Of the three GM proteins in the GM diet, one made a crop resistant to being sprayed with the herbicide Roundup, while two were insecticides.

Anytime something in food is changed there are going to be a segment of the population(or more) that has problems digesting the new proteins, etc.  They've even found that the "undigestible" sugars in no or lo cal sweeteners are changing our gut fauna to digest these sugars, therefore negating the lo or no calorie lie and possibly causing real problems in the gut by changing the biota.  It's never good to change your diet unless it's bad in the first place and anything new getting added to our diet seems to be bad.

from a lake or ocean, to the flesh of a beast, or  the dirt of the ground= food

abstaining from food? that wont last too long you know. You'll find yourself eating from the land, beasts,  the sea or the air eventually. :P

well, I got my own inland lake, raise my own beasts, grow my own medicines, and much of my own food year round. I will gladly gobble my organic farm fodder. I don't use sprays or chems here.

first you must trust your food source(s) or grow your own.

Its difficult in the city, so we moved to the country, to survive. best thing we ever did.

Yeah . . . right . . . I'm going to abstain from eating real food . . .

 

 

Where's the b i t c h slap emoticon ? jk , Luv ya grassmatch   :blow-a-heart:

check investment portfolios. some heavily support the very companies that disgust us, as well as GMO activities, developers, seed producers, culture programs, GMO law enforcement, property confiscation, farmer prosecutions and worse.

 

Many of the new drugs on the market today are GMO. Some are referred to as "biologics". Vaccinations have been GMO since I was a child for thought. Children are now legally GMO'd electively. Pollinating insects are GMO'd in the wild. I can only imagine what the other countries are doing with GMO  without the  over sight of our country's moral code. :cold:

I bet China, Russia, and more are knee deep in gmo technologies, especially as they relate to war. Bioweapons, virus', deadly bacteria, food stuff etc are produced in many countries sadly. "Modified food starch" for instance. Pepsi flavoring is done with tissue cultures producing enzymes using human kindney cells.

In the countries where gmo vaccines are not available.....people get strange diseases, and we come to the rescue with vaccines that save them, gmo vaccines. This crazy chit is a world wide deal. be afraid

 

I fear these perpetrator types would have it no other way.

...is this not an ominous sign or ??? re: BASF " Today, the four letters are a registered trademark and the company is listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, London Stock Exchange, and Zurich Stock Exchange. The company delisted its ADR from the New York Stock Exchange in September 2007."  

 

as for their homeys Bayer, IG Farben, Monsanto, Aushwitz, Fluoride...

"Monsanto, Cargill, BASF, Bayer, and Aventis (or I.G. Farben, Hoechst) are all in partnership under the banner of Crop Science.

They are partnered in various ways, such as:   ..."  read on...The Monsanto Connection

Ya, I was just referring to the countries that won't buy our GMO crops.  Some know it's bad.  Some are bullied like Mexico where the pollen has found it's way into every native corn variety there.  It's definitely frightening and with politicians on their side, unstoppable.

Man, I hope GMO crops are not dangerous, and this study will is either flawed or can't be verified by other studies. GMO grain is everywhere in the US. If it is dangerous, perhaps even a small amount mixed in during processing of non-GMO grains would be dangerous.

 

The only problem I see with the study is that I found they carefully "blinded" the pig weighers, pig autopsy workers, and so on, but I could not see where the pig "daily caretakers/feeders/waterers" were "blinded" to which pigs were fed GMOs or not. Only in the conclusion do they say the handlers/caretakers were also "blind". 

 

If the handlers (people feeding the pigs) did know which feed was which, then the study is not a "double blind" study: it is only a "single blind" study. In a "double blind" study, no one knows which pigs are which: both during the trial and during the examination of the final results (during live weighing and autopsy). The pigs shouldn't even know (were they humans, for example). I scanned the study specifically looking for "blinding" details.

 

I used to read Scientific American and Psychology Today so I'm familiar descriptions of experiments. Both these mags covered studies to the level of detail to include study design and methods (such as double blinding, measurements, sample size, statistical significance and so on). To convince other scientists that the design and results are legitimate (at least for that study), they have to detail the study design (and thus implementation).

one issue with gmo corn for instance is the agrobacterium used to introduce alien cells into dna is supposed to be killed in the process, and is not.

We have overcrowded our cattle, reduced their feed to dead animals, expired candy and soy. They are plagued with infection and are force fed antibiotics routinely.

these same antibiotics have killed their natural flora and caused great digestive damage on every commercial feed lot farm. Feeding an herbivore meat(from other dead animals) doesn't help the matter, and forced cannibalism cinches the deal.

 

the agrobacterium acts as a vector when introducing new cells into the dna of animals/plants. Much like a virus its able to infiltrate this protein and bring with it any amount of information attached. Corn introduces an expression of another bacterium that will kill the corn worm(?). each plant is now programmed at the cellular level to reproduce this mutant gene. 

In tissue culture practice it is common to use antibiotics to kill off the vector without doing harm to the mutagen. These agrobacterium have now developed immunities to our antibiotics, right from the test tube and directly from the cattle's use. When the cow eats that corn she eats that live(?) agrobacterium. This causes all kinds of disease(morgellons?), some report as huge sores and rashes, again treated unsuccessfully with more antibiotics.  I've seen infected cows like this, and cows with a permanent plastic hole/port into their stomach, for the manual removal of undigested food by the workers on the farm.

 

Cows fed anything but grass as their main supply lack CLA(conjugated linoleic acid) in their meat. This is directly connected to the health of meat eaters. Countries feeding grass grazed cows do not suffer from the lack of cla in their diet. Cows eat grass silly, anything else is for profit.
