GE Foods Freak out Rats; GE Sugar Coming To You Soon
Schools in Wisconsin are showing kids the dangers of genetically engineered (GE) junk food
with some unique science class experiments. Sister Luigi Frigo repeats the experiment every year in her second grade class in Cudahy. Students fed one group of mice unprocessed whole foods. A second group of mice were given the same junk foods served at most schools. Within a couple of days, the second group of mice developed erratic sleeping schedules and became lazy, nervous and even violent. It took the mice about three weeks on unprocessed foods to return to normal. According to Frigo, the second graders tried to do the experiment again a few months later with the same mice, but the animals had already learned their lesson and refused to eat the GE food. Gosh, do rats know something we humans don’t know?
