Photo – Irritable bowl disease, leaky gut syndrome, reflux, gastritis… when you consider that pigs have a similar digestive system to humans, the results of this brand new study of pigs who were fed GM crops are "striking and statistically significant."
Pigs on the GM diet were 2.6 times more likely on average to get severe stomach inflammation than control pigs: females were 2.2 times more likely, males were 4 times more likely.
Females had an average 25% heavier uterus than non-GM-fed females, a possible indicator of disease that requires further investigation.
For all of the "pro GMO" crowd who's preparing to debunk the study methods, the following parameters were carefully organized in the study:
– it was led by a researcher with outstanding and relevant credentials in organic chemistry, nutritional biochemistry and metabolic regulation, epidemiology and biostatistics (so they can't claim a "quack" scientist did the study);
– it was conducted at a commercial pig farm, versus in the lab (so they can't claim that it's not a real world situation);
– it was conducted under strict scientific controls that are not normally present on farms (so they can't claim that farm research is invalid);
– it was conducted for a full five months–which is the standard length of time pigs are fed prior to slaughter (so they can't claim that it was not a normal lifespan);
– it was conducted using the same pigs bred and raised on commercial pig farms (so they can't claim it was a "pig prone to problems");
– it was conducted using the standard GM corn and soy diet used on commercial pig farms (so they can't claim that the GM levels were higher than normal, or that they used a non-valid feed source);
– it was confirmed by third party veterinarian autopsies who were not told whether a pig had had a GM diet or the control diet (so they can't claim a bias in the findings);
– it was published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Organic Systems (so they can't claim there was no peer review).
