Researchers at China’s Agricultural University have concluded that testing on transgenic rice has so far brought no abnormalities. The results came after 90 days’ of tests to see if the genetically modified food had any health affects.
Professor Huang Kunlun from China’s Agricultural University is in charge of the research. He says guinea pigs and monkeys were used in the testing because they have strong similarities to human digestive systems and how they process nutrition.
Established in 2012, the research team carried out studies on the animals’ metabolism, immunity, and reproductive systems. Researchers spent 90 days on the testing work. During this period, there were no reports of deaths or toxication. All the animals tested were found to be healthy.
