Genetic Roulette Falsely Claims:

Mice fed Roundup Ready soy had unexplained changes in testicular cells

  1. The structure and gene expression pattern of testicle cells of mice fed Roundup Ready soybeans changed significantly
  2. The cause for the changes is unknown, bit the testicles are sensitive indicators of toxins.
  3. Some of the changes might possibly influence adult fertility as well as the health of the offspring
  4. 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.
