Sorgfelt - Your "question" (which reads more like an accusation), refers very specifically to Bt toxins, yet when someone asked you for scientific evidence, you cited a study on the affects of Glyphosate. Just to clarify, Bt toxins and Glyphosate are 2 *completely* different things. Some GMO crops produce Bt toxins to kill insects, while other GMO crops have been given resistance to the herbicide Glyphosate. The purpose of this site is to become educated about the realities of this science, not to sling unproductive accusations.
Thanks for your question. You may be interested in Kevin Folta's post which addresses the bioaccumulation of bt toxins, available here: http://gmoanswers.com/ask/what-does-research-conclude-about-bioaccumulation-bt-toxin-resulting-humans-consuming-gmos-and
Sorgfelt - have you read any scientific response to the findings in the study you link to? I have found that most scientists would question the findings as speculative, and not "evidence" that there is a direct impact on humans. You might find some of this discussed here: http://weedcontrolfreaks.com/2013/06/gmo-pig/
First, I said intestine, not stomach. Next, I keep running into people who say there is no evidence for this or that, while they ignore or deny the evidence that most certainly does exist. Monsanto's research always stops short of any such evidence, so you won't find it there, but you will find it elsewhere. So here it is: http://www.mdpi.com/1099-4300/15/4/1416 entitled "Glyphosate’s Suppression of Cytochrome P450 Enzymes and Amino Acid Biosynthesis by the Gut Microbiome: Pathways to Modern Diseases"
There is no scientific basis for your suggestion that the BT toxin will impact the porosity of a human stomach.
