    There are multiple studies that do in fact suggest GMOs cause cancer. The Seralini study was only retracted under threat of lawsuit....not because they produced bad data. Double blind studies are virtually impossible to prove that anything causes cancer....which doesn't imply things don't cause cancer, just that corporate legalese can strongarm good science into silence. In an Austrailian pig feed study, nearly all the intestinal linings of GMO fed pigs were significantly inflammed....which is a cancer pre-cursor (not to mention the 25%+ size increase in uterine growth and associated fertility issues). Ironic that in a lab cells show abnormal proliferation from Bt (i.e. cancer), but the 'expert' says they DEFINITELY don't do that in the body....at least not as often thanks to the fact we have an immune system that can fight back against this garbage. Bt is an endocrine disruptor....another cancer precursor....and pesticides are carcinogenic period....more cancer precursors. How silly to listen to how plants will now be engineered to produce cancer fighting compounds.....healthy organic plants already contain them and act as cancer preventers without any expensive engineering and associated environmental degradation and health problems. I am a 10 yr organic farmer vet, and master degree holding natural healthcare expert.

      Hi SolsticeFarmer, thanks for participating in the discussion! You mention several studies that have been addressed on GMO Answers. We invite you to read responses to popular related studies from independent experts at the links below. If you have any specific questions about these studies, or the health and safety aspects of GMOs, please submit them at http://www.gmoanswers.com/ask.

      Dr. Alan McHughen, biotechnology specialist at the University of California, Riverside responses to the Seralini study here: http://gmoanswers.com/ask/have-you-reviewed-study-showing-gmos-caused-cancer-lab-rats. Dr. Kevin Folta, professor and chair of the horticultural sciences department at the University of Florida provides discussion on the Mezzomo Bt study at http://gmoanswers.com/ask/what-does-research-conclude-about-bioaccumulation-bt-toxin-resulting-humans-consuming-gmos-and.
