COMMENT from Dr Brian John: We have recently listed ten top papers relating to health and safety issues around GM crops and foods. On the [GM-free Cymru] site we have pasted citations, abstracts and comments relating to the findings in each case. Some of this information is new -- but some of the papers are already referred to in Jeffrey Smith's books and in other publications.
We hope this will be a valuable resource for anybody wishing to communicate their concerns to politicians or anybody else. The evidence of tissue and cell damage to the internal organs of animals fed on GM materials (even in very short feeding trials) is consistent, and is piling up.
It shows that Arpad Pusztai was right to call attention to this phenomenon in 1998, and it confirms his results. The health damage is not associated with strange GM creations contained within a laboratory, but with GM varieties that have already been through the approvals process.
There is something inherently dangerous about ALL of the GM varieties on the market, and the regulators are now into the territory of criminal negligence when they consistently turn a blind eye to this "evidence of harm" in the peer-reviewed literature.
