* In 2005 and 2006, researchers at the Russian Academy of Sciences
reported that female rats who were fed glyphosate-tolerant GM soya
produced an excessive number of stunted pups with over 50% of them
dying within three weeks. The other half were all sterile. This
experiment was repeated several times with the same result .
* Between 2005 and 2006 in the Warangal district of Andhra Pradech in
India, thousands of sheep died while grazing on residues from Bt
(Bacillus thuringiensis, which is a type of bacteria which is toxic to
some types of insects) cotton crops .
* In 2003, villagers in the Philippines’ south suffered mysterious
illnesses when a Monsanto Bt maize hybrid came into flower. At least
five have died and many villagers tested positive for antibodies to the
Bt protein while others still remain chronically ill .
* Between 2001 and 2002, 12 cows died in Hesse, Germany after consuming
Syngenta GM maize (Bt176), while many others had to be slaughtered due
to mysterious illnesses .
* From 2002 to 2005, researchers from four Italian universities
published articles indicating that GM soya adversely affected
pancreatic, hepatic (liver) and testicular cells in young mice .
* In 2005, Australian researchers at the Commonwealth Scientific and
Industrial Research Organization in Canberra reported that a harmless
protein in beans (alpha-amylase inhibitor-1) caused inflammation in the
lungs of mice and elicited increased dietary sensitivities to other
proteins when transferred to peas .
* In 1998, researchers reported damage to every organ system of young
rats who were fed GM potatoes containing snowdrop lectin . In the
same year, researchers in Egypt found analogous effects on the guts of
mice fed Bt potato .
* In 2002, Aventis, later named Cropscience, submitted research to
regulators in the U.K. reporting that chicken fed glufosinate-tolerant
GM maize Chardon LL were twice as likely to die prematurely than
chickens in the control group .
