Former Pro-GMO Scientist Speaks Out on Dangers of Genetically Modified Food
By Dr. Thierry Vrain - Guest Writer for Wake Up World
I retired 12 years ago after a long career as a research scientist for Agriculture Canada. When I was on the payroll, I was the designated scientist of my institute to address public groups and reassure them that genetically engineered crops and foods were safe.
I refute the claims of the biotechnology companies...
We should all take these studies seriously and demand that government agencies replicate them rather than rely on studies paid for by the biotech companies.
There are no long-term feeding studies performed in these countries to demonstrate the claims that engineered corn and soya are safe. All we have are scientific studies out of Europe and Russia, showing that rats fed engineered food die prematurely. These studies show that proteins produced by engineered plants are different than what they should be. Inserting a gene in a genome using this technology can and does result in damaged proteins.
