Genetically-modified corn sold by Monsanto (MON) causes organ damage in rats, according to a paper by three French scientists published in the International Journal of Biological Sciences. The Huffington Post published a piece today on the study.

The study, which looked at three different types of Monsanto corn, found a variety of side-effects from consuming the corn:

“[I]n the three GM maize varieties that formed the basis of this investigation, new side effects linked to the consumption of these cereals were revealed, which were sex- and often dose-dependent. Effects were mostly concentrated in kidney and liver function, the two major diet detoxification organs, but in detail differed with each GM type. In addition, some effects on heart, adrenal, spleen and blood cells were also frequently noted.”

In a response posted on its Web site, Monsanto denounces the study, asserting that “these claims are based on faulty analytical methods and reasoning and do not call into question the safety findings for these products.”

You know who eats genetically modified corn, right? Everyone.
