Reading along #12 | Latest anti-gmo study: More bullshit.

This is a blog I just discovered thanks to my Twitter pals and I think it does a pretty good job at debunking “popular belief”, often conflated with so-called common sense, which is usually pure prejudice and easy stereotyping, when it isn’t outright “nonsense”. This post is about the latest pseudo-scientific scoop from anti-GMO activists in the form of another completely flawed study on animal consuming food made of genetically modified plants (GMP). As some of my friends stated, this so-called long-term toxicology study on pigs fed a combined genetically modified (GM) soy and GM maize diet mostly demonstrates that anti-GMO scientific activists mostly mistreat their laboratory animals. This post also shows that Monsanto isn’t the only evil out there on the GMO battle field. Their adversaries aren’t better! And this, of course, leaves us pounder whether our interests are so much better defended by these people than by those they claim to oppose!

Contrary to popular belief

This is getting ridiculous. More anti-gmo nonsense science showing the harmful effects of gmos. It’s called  A long-term toxicology study on pigs fed a combined genetically modified (GM) soy and GM maize diet.

I hesitate to link to the study because I don’t want to give them the traffic. I was also going to summarize factually why this study is so lame, but the biotech squints and other smart people were immediately on the case like ugly on Ronnie Cummins, totally discrediting it on every level.  I have posted links to those dissections below.

But in a nutshell, the study claims that pigs fed gmo corn got sick.  They had more stomach ulcers, or not.
