Tests Carried Out for the Commercialization of Chemicals and GMOs Are Invalidated By the Diets of Laboratory Rats

Submitted by Food Democracy Now on June 18, 2015 - 1:27am

Laboratory rats are frequently used for testing chemicals and genetically modified (GMO) foods, as the last step before commercialization in order to determine effects on mammalian health and predict risk in humans. Such chemicals include pesticides (which often are endocrine disruptors or toxic to the nervous system), plasticizers, and food additives. Some are suspected of being carcinogenic, and others are gradually being banned after having poisoned people and the ecosystem.
