Séralini Group Republishes Study, Confirms Results
The study was originally published in 2012 in the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology. It found that the world’s best-selling herbicide, Roundup, causes severe liver and kidney deficiencies and hormonal disturbances, such as mammary tumours, at low environmentally relevant levels. Similar effects were observed from the chronic consumption of Roundup-tolerant GM maize.
More than a year later and after a concerted campaign to discredit the study and under intense pressure, the journal retracted the study.
Now the study has been republished by Environmental Sciences Europe. The republished version contains extra material addressing criticisms of the original publication. The raw data underlying the study’s findings are also published. The new paper presents the same results as before and the conclusions are unchanged.
The republished study is accompanied by a separate commentary by Prof Séralini’s team describing the lobbying efforts to force the editor of Food and Chemical Toxicology to retract the original publication.
