The scientist attacked for proving GMO dangers wins defamation suit in French court

Their study discovered that rats fed GMOs developed tumors and died prematurely. But that wasn’t the purpose of their study. It was set up to examine the long term toxicity potential of eating Monsanto’s GMO corn along with the inherent exposure to Roundup.

After Seralini’s long term toxicity study results were publicized with displays of rats showing huge tumors, a tsunami of outrage from pro-GMO scientists and journalists got favorable mainstream media (MSM) press.

The hundreds of scientists who defended Seralini’s work were mostly ignored. Many fence sitters were left confused and willing to side with the barking dogs of the biotechnology industry. Continue reading “The scientist attacked for proving GMO dangers wins defamation suit in French court”

The French government has asked its health and safety agency to assess the study and had also sent it to the European Union’s food safety agency, Reuters reports. Continue reading “Monsanto GM corn causes tumours in rats”
