Scientists suspect health threat from GM maize

Scientists investigating a spate of illnesses among people living close to GM maize fields in the Philippines believe that the crop may have triggered fevers, respiratory illnesses and skin reactions.


“With such evidence of possible human health impacts of foods already on the market, we believed that waiting to report our findings through publication would not be in the public’s interest.”


Monsanto said it was “extremely unlikely” that the limited production of the GM crop in the Philippines would have produced such results.
