We know that YOU know the results and we know you've reported the results to other scientists. Yet the citizens who made this CITIZEN science project a reality have been left in the dark for more than 18 months. This is really shameful. Especially during a time when its becoming clearer each day that glyphosate, is carcinogenic and yet 80% of gmo crops are sprayed with it, its important for the public to understand the concerns that gmo crops have in our food system and ecosystem. Isn't it time for the results of this experimented to see the light of day?????

Thanks for the update! While we're waiting, I'd be curious to hear from people who participated in the experiment who are reading this message board. How many found a strong preference by wild animals to one of the ears of corn (30% or more preference.) I understand this will only be an anecdotal observation but it would be interesting to see. Thanks!

We're all wondering, what's up. I emailed twice and I'm asking on this discussion board as well. When will the results be in????

The cereals were exactly alike in sugar content and most other ingredients. A small amount of the GMO cereal was eaten, but it was interesting watching the animals hop on the GMO plate only to use it as a jumping off point to get to the non-GMO plate. Even when we re-arranged the location of the plates, the results were the same. Of course, in your experiment, you're using exactly the same type of corn, so you've cut out most of the other variables making for a more exacting result.

We just did the experiment in our yard and were amazed to find a very strong preference for one ear of corn and almost no interest in the other. Although we have no idea which ear is which, we tried our own experiment this winter with GMO corn flakes and non-GMO corn flakes before your experiment arrived. We discovered that the squirrels, opossums and raccoons that feasted preferred the non-GMO cornflakes at a rate as high as 7 to 1. I wonder if we'll find similar results with this experiment. Looking forward to the final tally . . .
