The company that published the article “Long term toxicity of a Roundup herbicide and a Roundup-tolerant genetically modified maize,” by Gilles Eric Séralini et al, in the Food and Chemical Toxicology journal, has retracted the article based on weak evidence to support that the herbicide and trait caused serious disease in rats as conducted by the authors of the study.
Immediately after the French molecular biologists at the University of Caen, France, gained publication of the article blaming rat tumors on the herbicide and traited corn (NK603) in 2012, most scientists of the world who research toxicology condemned the study as making an untrue conclusion that genetically modified (GM) corn caused tumors.
After another peer review post publication that has just recently been concluded, the journal’s editor-in-chief wrote that the small number and type of rats used in the study should have resulted in red flags that “no definitive conclusions can be reached.”
This retraction is only one of several rebuffs by the world’s scientific community of the study results and report.
