Results of serum hormone levels, sperm parameters and relative organ/body weights indicated no treatment-related side effects on the reproductive system of male rats, and no diet-related changes were found in necropsy and histopathology examinations.


The study was conducted with 24 subjects (8 pigs and 4 boars in each group). The diet consisted of 10% full-fat extruded soybean; "Vorskla" varieties (without genetic modifications) in the control

The use of whole food animal studies in the safety assessment of genetically modified crops: Limitations and recommendations

It is concluded that WF animal toxicity studies are unnecessary and scientifically unjustifiable because of the improbability of de novo generation of toxic substances in crop plants using genetic engineering practices and due to the weakness of WF toxicity studies in general.



The Impact of Dietary Organic and Transgenic Soy on the Reproductive System of Female Adult Rat

Both GMSG and OSG diets resulted in decreased body weight and lower serum triglyceride and cholesterol levels, and alterations in uterine and ovarian morphology were also observed.

Genetically modified crops safety assessments: present limits and possible improvements

The 90-day-long tests are insufficient to evaluate chronic toxicity, and the signs highlighted in the kidneys and livers could be the onset of chronic diseases.

Effects of short-term feeding of Bt MON810 maize on growth performance, organ morphology and function in pigs

In conclusion, short-term feeding of Bt MON810 maize to weaned pigs resulted in increased feed consumption, less efficient conversion of feed to gain and a decrease in goblet cells/μm of duodenal villus.

Health Risks of GM Foods: Many Opinions but Few Data

In the mass media in recent months the debate about genetically modified (GM) foods has increased, and scientific journals have not been an exception. Science and other prestigious journals such as

Animal nutrition with feeds from genetically modified plants

Results indicate that for compositionally equivalent GMP routine-feeding studies with target species generally add little to nutritional and safety assessment, and it is suggested that studies made with animals will play a much more important role in insuring the safety of these 2nd generation constructs.

Fine structural changes in the ileum of mice fed on delta-endotoxin-treated potatoes and transgenic potatoes.

Mild changes are reported in the structural configuration of the ileum of mice fed on transgenic potatoes, nevertheless, thorough tests of these new types of genetically engineered crops must be made to avoid the risks before marketing.
