The Austrian Agency for Health and Food Safety (AAHFS) confirms that genetically modified (GM) corn seriously affects reproductive health in mice. A long-term feeding study commissioned by the AAHFS substantiates such warnings from non-GMO advocates, who now seek a ban on all GM foods and GM crops. The study was conducted by the University of Veterinary Medicine in Vienna. It shows that feeding mice with genetically modified corn developed by the US-based Monsanto Corporation led to lower fertility and body weight. Other studies have also found that the offspring of rats fed GM soy showed a five-fold increase in mortality, lower birth weights, and the inability to reproduce. When purchasing these foods make sure they indicate Non-GMO foods.
