(NaturalNews) If you have stomach problems or gastrointestinal problems, a new study led by Dr. Judy Carman may help explain why: pigs fed a diet of genetically engineered soy and corn showed a 267% increase in severe stomach inflammation compared to those fed non-GMO diets. In males, the difference was even more pronounced: a 400% increase. (For the record, most autistic children are males, and nearly all of them have severe intestinal inflammation.)
The study was
conducted on 168 young pigs on an authentic farm environment and was carried
out over a 23-week period by eight researchers across Australia and the USA.
The lead researcher, Dr. Judy Carman, is from the Institute of Health and
Environmental Research in Kensington Park, Australia. The study has now
been published in the Journal of Organic
Systems, a peer-reviewed science journal.
The study is the first to show what appears to be a direct connection between
the ingestion of GMO animal feed and measurable damage to the stomachs of those
animals. Tests also showed abnormally high uterine weights of animals fed the
GMO diets, raising further questions about the possibility of GMOs causing
reproductive organ damage.
Proponents of corporate-dominated GMO plant science quickly attacked the study,
announcing that in their own minds, there is no such thing as any evidence
linking GMOs to biological harm in any animals whatsoever. And they are
determined to continue to believe that, even if it means selectively ignoring
the increasingly profound and undeniable tidal wave of scientific studies that
repeatedly show GMOs to be linked with severe organ damage, cancer tumors and premature
"Adverse effects... toxic effects... clear evidence"

Lead author of the study Dr. Judy Carman stated, "We found these adverse
effects when we fed the animals a mixture of crops containing three GM genes
and the GM proteins that these genes produce. Yet no food regulator anywhere in
the world requires a safety assessment for the possible toxic effects of
mixtures. Our results provide clear evidence that regulators need to safety
assess GM crops containing mixtures of GM genes, regardless of whether those
genes occur in the one GM plant or in a mixture of GM plants eaten in the same
meal, even if regulators have already assessed GM plants containing single GM
genes in the mixture."

GMO diet. As you can see from the photo, the pig fed the GMO diet suffered
severe inflammation of the stomach:
Yet more evidence that GMOs damage mammals
Why weren't these studies done before GMOs were unleashed into the global food supply?
And what's different about Monsanto's GM corn? It produces a deadly insecticide grown right into every kernel. That insecticide, of course, is what kills insects that try to eat the crop. And how does it kill those insects? It fatally damages their digestive systems. That same insecticide stays inside the corn even as the crop is turned into animal feed... or corn chip snacks... or flaked corn breakfast cereal.
GMOs are unfit for human consumption
