Rat feeding studies like these, in which rats are fed a potential toxic item and monitored for adverse effects, are considered both specific and sensitive for monitoring toxicity of foods and widely used in the food regulation industry .
Final approval was to be based on a local referendum to be held in November. Birds, bees, insects, wind and rain carry the GM-pollen across acres of fields and mixes the pollen with organic plants. The bacteria that naturally colonise certain crops have also been modified, in some cases to express the Bt genes responsible for pest resistance.Page 1 of 3 (Page 2, Page 3)By Sally Fallon & Mary G.
