Toxicity of GM 'Food' Revealed in New Study

'Tis unnatural,/Even like the deed that's done (Macbeth, Act II, Scene IV, ll. 10, 11).

Eating genetically modified corn (GM corn) and consuming trace levels of Monsanto's Roundup chemical fertilizer caused rats to develop horrifying tumors, widespread organ damage, and premature death. That's the conclusion of a shocking new study that looked at the long-term effects of consuming Monsanto's genetically modified corn.

The study has been deemed "the most thorough research ever published into the health effects of GM food crops and the herbicide Roundup on rats." News of the horrifying findings is spreading like wildfire across the internet, with even the mainstream media seemingly in shock over the photos of rats with multiple grotesque tumors... tumors so large the rats even had difficulty breathing in some cases. GMOs may be the new thalidomide.


It goes on to say: "The animals on the GM diet suffered mammary tumors, as well as severe liver and kidney damage. The researchers said 50 percent of males and 70 percent of females died prematurely, compared with only 30 percent and 20 percent in the control group."
We may say definitively that GMO food is a danger to human health and to other living creatures, but now comes the difficult part:  opposing this life-in-death vision that the agri-business corporations of the world have in mind for us with an alternative vision for man and the creation that has life-giving, creative content.  This is Father Sergius Bulgakov's challenge to us, perhaps more relevant today than when he wrote it in 1939:
Our epoch is characterized by a broad development of creativity "in its own name," by a deluge of anthropotheism, in the form of a luciferian creative intoxication, and by an immersion in dull sensual paganism.  These developments cannot be overcome by mere rejection; they can be overcome only by the unfolding of a positive Christian doctrine of the world and creative activity, and by manifestation of its power (The Bride of the Lamb, tr. Boris Jakim, Grand Rapids, Michigan, Eerdmans: 2002, p. 332).
