Federal courts in the US are cracking down on GM foods, and now this is happening in the UK as well. Monsanto has been accused of suppressing a study of GM potatoes that showed that they damaged the internal organs of rats.
In the Western Mail, Steve Dube quotes biologist Irina Ermakova as saying that when GM NewLeaf potatoes, created by Monsanto, were fed to rats, they damaged their kidneys, liver, large gut, blood serum, testes and prostate. A study by researcher Arpad Pusztai came to a similar conclusion. These results were published only after a long campaign waged by Greenpeace.
