1.) Altered structure and function of the liver including lipid and carbohydrate metabolism as well as increased oxidative stress.
2.) Accelerated aging
3.) Changes in the kidney, spleen and pancreas
4.) GM corn caused infertility and lower birth weight in litters

8.) Disruption of the Immune System
