1.12— Rats fed Roundup Ready Soy —no effect on testicular cells
Mice fed Roundup Ready soy had no changes in testicular cells
Analysis of Peer-Reviewed Research:
Mice fed Roundup Ready soy had unexplained changes in testicular cells
- The structure and gene expression pattern of testicle cells of mice fed Roundup Ready soybeans changed significantly
- The cause for the changes is unknown, bit the testicles are sensitive indicators of toxins.
- Some of the changes might possibly influence adult fertility as well as the health of the offspring
- Mouse embryos from GM-fed mothers did show a temporary decrease in gene expression
The Paraphrase: Mice fed GM soy exhibited changes in testicular cells that could be signs of reproductive or health problems.
