Scientists Defend Study Showing Monsanto's GMOs & Pesticides Make Rats Grow Tumors
A new peer-reviewed research paper by the French group of Gilles-Eric Seralini reveals devastating effects on rats fed diets containing genetically modified corn, with and without the herbicide Roundup, as well as Roundup alone. Seralini's study extends the work of others, which have demonstrated the toxicity and/or endocrine-based impacts of Roundup. This peer-reviewed study has been criticized by a group of indentured scientists whose views have been widely reported in the popular press.
But a growing number of independent scientists are defending Seralini, with the following warning:
"When those with a vested interest attempt to sow unreasonable doubt around inconvenient results, or when governments exploit political opportunities by picking and choosing from scientific evidence, they jeopardize public confidence in scientific methods and institutions, and also put their own citizenry at risk."
With the news that lifetime feeding studies show that Monsanto's herbicide RoundUp and genetically engineered RoundUp Ready crops cause deadly cancer in rats, Russia, France, India and other countries are considering bans. Please read the scientists' entire statement, then send a letter to U.S. regulators urging them to review the new evidence as well.
