Target: United States Food and Drug Administration
Goal: To prioritize research on genetically modified organisms and their effect on mammal reproductive systems and infertility.
A new study from Russia conducted independently from the biotechnology industry has unveiled startling new evidence on the implicit dangers associated with consuming genetically modified organisms (GMOs), with specific concerns on mammal reproduction and infertility. Presented by scientists from the National Association for Gene Security and the Institute of Ecological and Evolutional Problems at Russia’s Days of Defense Against Environmental Hazards conference, the new evidence shows how animals fed a diet consisting of GMO foods eventually lose the ability to reproduce. Such a negative and biologically altering effect raises a call of concern that all governments should take seriously, especially within our nation where the struggle between health advocates and Big Agriculture is at an all-time high.
In recent years the fight over the usage of GMOs has received much attention, with opponents demanding mandated labeling of GMO foods and raising awareness on organic and sustainable farming. Injecting synthetic, unnatural components into the food supply has been a threat from the beginning, and the new evidence from Russia confirms the dangers and harmful effects of manufactured “Frankenfoods.”
The controlled study, which used hamsters as the test subjects, compared the growth rate and sexual maturity between pairs fed all-natural food and those fed a diet supplemented with GM soybeans. What the scientists discovered was the hamsters eating GMOs gradually lost their innate ability to reproduce. As Dr. Alexei Surov, one of the authors of the study explains, “when we got some of their cubs [GMO diet], we formed the new pairs of the third generation. We failed to get cubs from these pairs, which were fed with GM foodstuffs. It was proved that these pairs lost their ability to give birth to their cubs.” In other words, after only several generations of cubs breeding, those who ate GMOs as part of their diet became completely sterile.
The question now becomes, what are the effects of GMOs on human reproduction? A direct correlation between eating GMO foods and fertility has been established, and in order to protect the well-being of its citizens the government must support further research on the effects of genetically modified foods before future generations are compromised.
The fact that GMOs can alter systems on the biological level is truly alarming. Please sign the petition to help urge our government to take a more proactive stance on GMO research.
Dear United States Food and Drug Administration,
It is the job of this agency to protect and promote the health of its citizens, and yet genetically modified organisms continue to contaminate the food supply. The fight against GMOs has been well documented, and yet this agency choses to side with biotechnology companies responsible for the unnatural tampering of specific foods. Enough is enough. Genetically modified organisms are now proven to cause infertility, and it’s time to take a more active stance on GMO research.
According to a new Russian study conducted by the National Association for Gene Security and the Institute of Ecological and Evolutional Problems, hamsters fed a diet supplemented with GM soybeans became infertile within a few generations. In fact, when compared to cubs born from parents with a natural diet, those from parents with a GMO diet showed a severe decline in sexual maturity within the first couple generations.
If GMOs can alter the biological make-up in a couple generations of hamsters, and then lead to complete reproductive failure within four to five; who knows how they can effect humans in future generations. In order to protect and promote healthy eating, this agency must prioritize research on GMOs and their effect on reproduction. Take action now to safeguard the future of parents-to-be.
