1.11— Rats fed Roundup Ready Soy —no effect on pancreas
Mice fed Roundup Ready soy had no changes in pancreatic cells or enzymes.
Analysis of Peer-Reviewed Research: See response to 1.10
Genetic Roulette Falsely Claims:
Mice fed Roundup Ready soy had problems with the pancreas
1. Mice feed GM soy showed changes in the synthesis and processing of digestive enzymes
2. The production of alpha-amylase, a major digestive enzyme, dropped by as much as 77%.
3. This, combined with the other pancreatic changes, suggests that GM soy may interfere with digestion and assumilation, as well as alter gene expression. Mice fed GM soy produced lower levels of pancreatic digestive enzymes that might interfere with digestion.
