(NaturalNews) The recent release of the first ever study to independently and honestly evaluate the long-term effects of eating Monsanto's genetically-modified (GM) corn has sparked massive outcry around the world against the continued use of this genetic poison in the food supply. Authorities in France, Austria, Canada, New Zealand, and elsewhere are reconsidering not only their current policies regarding existing GMOs, but also the legitimacy of the criteria they have been using all along to approve GMOs.

In case you missed it, a recent peer-reviewed study on the effects of routine exposure to "safe" levels of Monsanto's GM corn and the chemical herbicide Roundup (glyphosate) have revealed that the two toxins are directly linked to causing cancerous tumors. The horrifying pictures now circulating the internet of rats with gigantic tumors all over their bodies unveil precisely what Monsanto's GM corn and Roundup are potentially doing to your own body and the bodies of millions of people all over the world (http://www.naturalnews.com).

The study, which was published in the highly-reputable journal Food and Chemical Toxicology, showed how rats fed a diet containing Monsanto's NK603 Roundup-resistant GM corn, which is widely cultivated in the U.S. today, died much earlier than GM-free control rats. Even rats fed just GM corn that had not been treated with Roundup ended up developing multiple ghastly tumors, indicating that some component of GM corn itself, apart from Roundup, is responsible for causing cancer.

Industry-backed 'safety' studies fail to evaluate long-term consequences of GMO consumption

The study was also the first to actually test the effects of GMOs in mammals for a period longer than 90 days. Every single industry-backed study that has ever been conducted was designed to conclude after a period of no longer than three months, which is hardly enough time to assess the long-term health damage caused by GMOs.

In the new study, tumors did not begin showing up in the test mice until after 120 days of eating GM corn, with the majority of their tumors showing up after 18 months of GM corn consumption. This is more than six times the amount of time typically allotted for GMO safety studies, which proves that long-term safety assessments of GMOs have never truly been conducted.

"Health Canada must re-evaluate the safety of all GM foods based on these results and halt new approvals until we have long-term testing and transparent regulation," said Lucy Sharratt from Health Canada about the new findings. "The federal government needs to redesign the entire system that approves GM foods because our regulations are not designed to look for the types of problems these scientists have found."

Worldwide backlash against GMOs could put their cultivation to an end

Similar sentiments have been expressed by authorities in many other countries as well, where GMO approvals have long been granted based on flawed studies that fail to verify the long-term effects of GMO consumption. In France, for instance, where GMOs are already illegal, officials are calling on European Union regulators to take unilateral action in banning GMOs across Europe.

"Depending on ANSES' (National Agency for Healthy Safety) opinion, the government will urge the European authorities to take all necessary measures to protect human and animal health," said French officials. "(The measures) could go as far as invoking emergency suspension of imports of NK603 corn to Europe pending a re-examination of this product on the basis of enhanced assessment methods."
