Lesson of the Week:
School Lab Rats Freak Out on GE Food
Schools in Wisconsin are showing kids the dangers of genetically
engineered (GE) junk food with some unique science class experiments.
Sister Luigi Frigo repeats the experiment every year in her second
grade class in Cudahy. Students feed one group of mice unprocessed
whole foods. A second group of mice are given the same junk foods
served at most schools. Within a couple of days, the behavior of the
second group of mice develop erratic sleeping schedules and become
lazy, nervous and even violent. It takes the mice about three weeks on
unprocessed foods to return to normal. According to Frigo, the second
graders tried to do the experiment again a few months later with the
same mice, but the animals have already learned their lesson and refuse
to eat the GE food.
