Are Genetically Modified Foods Making Us Fat?

Are Genetically Modified Foods Making Us Fat?

“Animals who ate genetically modified food in a recent scientific experiment got fatter, and at a faster rate, than animals eating organic, and in some cases developed digestion problems and immune system challenges. In a study carried out by the Norwegian School of Veterinary Science, “rats were fed GM corn (genetically modified for pest resistance). 

The obvious question not addressed by the study is whether the effects of GM foods seen in animals also take place in humans. Professor Åshild Krogdahl of the Norwegian School of Veterinary Science said: “If the same effect applies to humans, how would it impact people eating this type of corn over a number of years, or even eating meat from animals feeding on this corn? I don’t wish to sound alarmist, but it is an interesting phenomenon and worth exploring further.” Because the FDA opposes a labeling scheme for GM foods, Americans cannot make informed decisions about what food they buy, risking yet-unknown health consequences.”
