GM Potato


In 1996, the UK Government awarded a $ 1.6 million grant to a team of researchers led by Arpad Pusztai of the prestigious Rowett Institute. Their mandate was to test the safety of GM food. They took up for study GM potatoes engineered to produce their own insecticide. There were rigorous tests conducted on rats. And rats subjected to the tests were affected in many ways one couldn't have foreseen. Precancerous growth in the digestive tract, inhibited development of the brains, inhibited development of the livers and partial atrophyinhibited development of the testicles, enlarged pancreas, enlarged intestines and damage to immune systems.

Recently, reports from a secret study done for Monsanto in 1998 by Institute of Nutrition of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences and suppressed for 8 years, showed that the potatoes did considerable damage to the organs of the rats in the study. In comparison, the rats in the “control groups” which were fed on normal potatoes or on a non-potato diet were healthier and had much less organ and tissue damage. more
