Monsanto Corn Linked to Organ Damage
The first-ever public study of the health effects of genetically modified corn shows that three patented crops developed and owned by agriculture giant Monsanto cause liver, kidney and heart damage in mammals.
The FDA has approved all three varieties for sale and consumption in the U.S. and all three are in our food supply right now.
More shocking, the raw data used in the study was from Monsanto’s own testing — the company simply ignored clear indications that their genetically modified corn was causing organ damage.
According to the study’s author, the company’s own data “clearly underlines adverse impacts on kidneys and liver, the dietary detoxifying organs, as well as different levels of damages to heart, adrenal glands, spleen and haematopoietic system.”
The FDA should immediately investigate and at least temporarily rescind approval for all three varieties of corn while research continues. By allowing Monsanto to sell its proprietary but dangerous corn, the FDA is failing to protect the public from needless risk.

Thanks for the update. I would recommend watching the documentary on hulu.com "The Futue of Food" that goes into the details of genetically modified foods, Monsanto, and thier actions against farmers. Monsanto is an evil monopoly with deep pockets!
Signed the petition, good info!
I'll check out The Future of Food… although I have to admit, it makes me nervous. Food, Inc. radically changed our household. I'm not sure I can take any more modification 😉
