A new study, yet to receive any media attention, reveals the “leukemogenic” properties of the Bt toxin biopesticides engineered into the vast majority of GMO food crops already within the US food supply.

Last September, the causal link between cancer and genetically modified food was confirmed in a French study, the first independent long-term animal feeding study of its kind. The disturbing details can be found here: New Study Finds GM Corn and Roundup Causes Cancer In Rats

Now, a new study published in the Journal of Hematology & Thromboembolic Diseases indicates that the biopesticides engineered into GM crops known as Bacillus Thuringensis (Bt) or Cry-toxins, may also contribute to blood abnormalities from anemia to hematological malignancies (blood cancers) such as leukemia.[i]

A group of scientists from the Department of Genetics and Morphology, Institute of Biological Sciences, University of Brasilia, Brasilia/DF, Brazil set out to test the purported human and environmental biosafety…

  1. I am sorry to inform you but that study is not accurate in the least bit. The researchers did not feed ANY GMO food to ANY mice during the study. The dosage of Bt was around one millions times the exposure humans would receive. The researchers did not use proper control groups to ensure study quality and they used a small sample size. Beyond that the study was withdrawn from Food and Chemical Toxicology where it was originally published. It is now in the very first issue of Journal of Hematology & Thromboembolic Diseases. The OMICS publishing group that owns Journal of Hematology & Thromboembolic Diseases owns dozens of journals many with no content. In fact OMICS is not allowed to submit papers to PubMed anymore and PubMed is a very well respected source of scientific research.

    • I’m sorry to inform you that neither am I the author of this article, nor have I stated any opinion on it one way or the other. I simply reblogged it because of its interesting and provocative content, and that it’s aligned with my desire to scrutinize our hasty and corporatist development of GMO crops and monoculture. Your comment would be better served on the original post.

      • I already did, I commented on the blog you reblogged from and the article it came from originally. I figured I best reply to each of the places I saw it posted so I can catch those reading the article.
