The Journal of Food and Chemical Toxicology has retracted the now famous 'Seralini study' which linked the consumption of GMO foods with the development of tumours in rats, and gave us the horrible pictures above. The journal would like to make it clear that this retraction is in no way related to the recent appointment of ex-Monsanto employee Richard E. Goodman to the newly created position of 'Associate Editor for Biotechnology'. No connection at all. Neither was the paper retracted on the grounds of methodological errors however, merely on the grounds of its 'inconclusive' nature.
To google 'Seralini' or something like 'GMO rats tumours', you'd be forgiven for thinking that this was the most debunked scientific paper of all time. According to geopolitical analyst and GMO researcher F. William Engdahl however, Dr. Seralini's study is weathering the storm it's kicked up just fine. All the criticisms made of it regarding its length of duration and sample sizes apply equally and more so to Monsanto's studies showing GMO's to be safe. And that's an amazing fact in itself, all studies show GMO's to be safe are sponsored by the GMO industry itself!
James Corbett has produced a brief and comprehensive video summarising this latest aspect of the controversy.
