Over half (55.6%) of the rats fed GM soy were dead in 3 weeks, compared to 9% fed regular soy. Many that survived were malformed, as depicted in the photo. The smaller rat on the right was fed GM soy. The rat on the left was not. The rats are the same age.
"The morphology and biochemical structures of rats are very similar to those of humans, and this makes the results we obtained very disturbing."

I DO NOT ** support animal testing at all. These poor little creatures, made deformed just because they want to see if genetically modified foods affect our biology. OF COURSE IT DOES. Nothing genetically modified is natural, so of course the results aren’t going to be great.

** I know that testing on animals has helped us come along way, but I think it’s time we found alternatives as science has proven that there are many alternatives! **
