Controversy : Is there a substantially equivalent in Monsanto Company’s corn products and non-transgenic conventional corns?

In order to fulfill these objectives, a total of 400 rats, approximately 6 weeks of age at the beginning of the study, divided into 10 groups of 20 rats/sex/group were used in this study. Two groups received controlled diet at levels of 11 % and 33 % and another two groups received MON 810 at levels of 11 % and 33 %. Rest of groups received non transgenic corn grain from four different parts of the U.S. to approximate the normal range response to commercial non-transgenic corn grain. . The responses of rats fed diet containing MON 810 were compared, based on
