Long term toxicity of a Roundup herbicide and a Roundup-tolerant genetically modified maize

Logo for Long term toxicity of a Roundup herbicide and a Roundup-tolerant genetically modified maize
This research article suggested that long-term exposure to GMOs and/or Roundup can increase chances of cancer and kidney and liver problems, even when within legal limits of contamination. It received great attention in popular media, and was discredited by other scientists working in the discipline, and ultimately retracted by the journal that published it. Several of the letters to the editor are included as links to give a larger context to the reader around the study, its authors, and the... More

Really good read. Addresses what happens when plants become immune to pesticides and how it can affect humans with consumption of the "plant."

I found it very interesting and more than a little disturbing that even among the group of rats fed the lowest amount of GM/glycophosphate corn still had some of the highest morbidity and mortality rates.  Hopefully this and studies like it will lead to more stringent regulations concerning both pesticide use and GM foods, and most especially when used in conjuction with one another.

I'm glad to see so many of my peers interested in roundup and GMO's. It's terrible stuff, maybe there is hope for humanity!

This is a good article to get an idea of microevolution.  This is an occurance that has no preventative measures nor any stop.

This new research is fairly controversial, and has caused many people to argue against its validity. However, it was published in a peer-reviewed journal, and I found the research both interesting and disturbing. I want to make certain that anyone interested in this article would easily be able to access it in order to make up their own mind about its content.
