Cancer risk? Two genetically engineered Monsanto corncobs, right, and two normal ones from Germany, left. Biotech companies have "proved" the safety of GM crops by conducting only 90-day trials on rats.

Russia has suspended the import and use of American GM corn following a study suggesting a link to breast cancer and organ damage.
Separately, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has ordered its own review into the research, which was conducted at a French university.
The decision by Russia could be followed by other nations that would deliver a severe blow to the take-up of the controversial genetic technology.

Experts at the University of Caen conducted an experiment running for the full lives of rats -- two years.

The findings, which were peer reviewed by independent experts before being published in a respected scientific journal, found raised levels of breast cancer, liver, and kidney damage. More

Wisdom Quarterly (COMMENTARY)
Avoid US corn and corn products (corn syrup, maltodextrin, chips, corn-fed beef, grain fed chicken, pig, and the countless other products that conceal cheap corn ingredients). Otherwise expect organ damage, cancers, obesity, persistent hunger, depression, mood fluctuations, migraines, fibromyalgia, and/or diabetes as the likely result of consumption. Even the best, most natural organic corn was considered a starvation crop, a starchy grass. It has been made into a dangerous frankenfood and gasoline substitute that, because it is so extremely cheap, is used in nearly all prepared/packaged foods.
