Scientific Study Finds Long-Term Health Impacts from GM Corn and Herbicide

Scientific Study Finds Long-Term Health Impacts from GM Corn and Herbicide

The researchers concluded that these health impacts resulted from the transgenic traits in the corn and the endocrine disrupters in the herbicide. Endocrine disrupters are particularly dangerous for children as they adversely impact developing nervous and reproductive systems. A previous German study found that exposure to glyphosate damaged or killed testicular cells in rats within 48 hours of exposure at concentrations as low as 1 ppm. Researchers have found concentrations as high as 14 ppm in human urine, which suggests that an alarming amount of this herbicide is finding its way into food and water supplies. The EPA’s safe limit is 0.7 ppm.
