Don't feed your rat GM food

Posted by Trent Walters at 7:38 AM
Though "preliminary in nature" this study showed rat-moms fed on genetically modified [GM] soybeans before and after birthing her young had more significantly stunted babes. Over half of the offspring died while only nine percent died in the control group (i.e. normal soybean conditions, presumably). They're calling for someone to immediately replicate the study due to its importance.

Some preliminary study also showed that laboratory mice fed a selenium deficient diet were less resistant to the bangkok strain of the influenza virus, than those fed a selenium richer diet...

Quickly, scramble for the selenium pills, it might help against birdflu!

No, it won't, not even if you're a lab rat.
