Fresh fears were raised over GM crops yesterday after a study showed they can cause liver and kidney damage.
According to the research, animals fed on three strains of genetically modified maize created by the U.S. biotech firm Monsanto suffered signs of organ damage.

Thanks, Liverock.

This is yet another reason to choose organic produce whenever possible. GMOs can't be classified as organic - at least in the USA.

It doesn't provide 100% protection but it's better than nothing. The only downside is the added cost.

Did anyone really have any doubt? (anyone here anyway) Eating phyto chemicals that are foreign to the body will damage it. You might as well eat plastic. We will pay with more like this as well as genetic mutations to be up and coming.

Not to mention hydrogenated oils (basically a low level plastic) and the fact that the medical industry will make even more $$$$
