On ABC Statewide Mornings Sarah Gillman spoke to:
DR JUDY CARMAN, Associate Professor in Biochemistry at Flinders University; Director of the Institute of Health and Enviornmental Research, on the genetically modified organisms (GMO) moratorium in Tasmania and what that means for Tasmania. (00-8:40)
Food Integrity Now spoke with Australian scientist, Dr. Judy Carman, epidemiologist and biochemist, about the GMO Pig Study. Dr. Carmen, the lead scientist, along with 7 other co-authors and scientists completed the study earlier this year. This thoroughly documented and
The ideal comparator for a toxicology study on a GM crop is the non-GM isogenic variety (genetically the same but only lacking the genetic modification), also called the non-GM parent variety. This non-GM isogenic variety should be grown in
Dr. Judy Carman, associate professor in Health and the Environment at Flinders University (Adelaide, South Australia) and a team of seven other co-authors and scientists have released results of a long-term, peer-reviewed toxicology study that has found even more
Researchers based out of Australia have found that pigs fed genetically engineered (GE) soy and GE corn are more likely to have severe stomach inflammation and higher uterine weight. Although the study, published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Organic Systems, has
Pigs who eat genetically modified grain show inflammation in their stomachs, leading critics to argue that GM foods hurt more than they help. (more…)
A new study claims that pigs were harmed by the consumption of feed containing genetically modified (GM) crops.
GM-fed females had on average a 25% heavier uterus than non-GM-fed females, a possible indicator of disease that requires further investigation. The
GM industry comment: GM crops have a clear record of safety. There have been hundreds of animal feeding studies that show that GM crops are safe to eat.
Reply: Most of the papers referred-to like this are usually animal production
Criticism: The size of the particles in the ground feed can cause stomach inflammation.
Reply: We know that the particle size of the feed can cause stomach inflammation, which is why we made sure that the particle size was the same between
