After much research and observations, Austrian scientists have discovered that the test mice show a decrease in fertility lower and lighter with children after long-term consumption of GM maize. The Austrian Agency for Health and Food Safety (AGES) released Tuesday the results of research that is commissioned by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Health, Family and Youth (BMGFJ) and conducted by the University Veterinary Vienna.

The research was led by Professor Juergen Zentek Veterinary University of Vienna, aiming to discover whether the long-term consumption of GM maize would have adverse effects on mice. The researchers divided the mice tested in two groups, one of them were fed with American "NK603xMON810" transgenic maize and other Austrian local maize.

After twenty weeks, the offspring of two groups of mice began to diverge. Corn fed transgenic mice gave birth to lighter and fewer offspring. After several generations, the reproductive organs of female eating maize forever, began to change.

However, Professor Jürgen Zentek noted in the press release on the results of the research that we can not say it is with human beings, simply by the test result from the mouse. He stressed that the harmful effects of transgenic maize on the other animals of fertility should be investigated.
