Scary photos of the effects of GMO feed

From naturalnews.com:

The following photo shows one of the pig intestines fed a non-GMO diet vs. a pig intestine fed a GMO diet. As you can see from the photo, the pig fed the GMO diet suffered severe inflammation of the stomach:

A scientific study published last year concluded that eating genetically modified corn (GM corn) and consuming trace levels of Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide was linked with rats developing shockingly large tumors, widespread organ damage, and premature death.

That study was also criticized by corporate GMO trolls who argued that scientists should not show pictures of rats with large cancer tumors caused by GMOs because the pictures scare consumers into being afraid of GMOs.

Here are some of the pictures they don’t want you to see, taken right from the public announcement of the study:

That study also found that rats fed GM corn suffered severe kidney damage as well as shockingly high rates of premature death.

Are they doing this to us for the money, or are they trying to kill us?

UPDATE: Just came across this article in Business Insider: Anti-GMO Study Gets Shredded By Scientists.

The article has a link to a PDF of the study. Actually, here it is: A long-term toxicology study on pigs fed a combined genetically modified (GM) soy and GM maize diet

Here is a sample of what the researchers found:

The description wasn’t as scary as the photos. In fact, the data reveal that the GMO-fed pigs had fewer heart and liver problems. I’m not saying that GMOs are safe. I’m just offering the info for your consideration.

Side journey:

The Business Insider article provides a peek at the mindset of so-called experts. From the article:

The paper in question [the anti-GMO study] was published in the Journal Of Organic Systems. This is a small journal that does not appear to have an “impact factor,” a way that scientists analyze the importance of journals. Additionally, the journal is funded by a pro-organic farming federation, the journal doesn’t specialize in genetically modified organisms but in organic farming, and doesn’t appear in an important repository for peer-reviewed research — sure signs that something’s up.

Right. The Journal of Organic Systems isn’t credible because it isn’t peer-reviewed by a group of people who all tow their party line. The arrogance of self-proclaimed experts is disgusting. They have become the arbiters of truth and the media just parrot their proclamations, which do not always correspond to the actual results.

The article further states:

Though the authors claim no conflicts of interest, the funding for the study itself was provided by Verity Farms, owned by one of the study’s authors, which sells non-GMO grains. They also got funding from the Australian non-profit, Institute of Health and Environmental Research, which seems dedicated to anti-GMO activism.

And how many of the dissenting experts get some sort of funding from pro-GMO sources?

“Experts” are controlling what we think. Big business and big government control what the experts say. That’s how they get funding for their research. Where does that leave the rest of us?
