These industry-funded studies aren’t science as much as they are public relations, always concluding that GE is safe and good.
If you’ve been paying attention to the news about food lately, you’ve probably read about the now infamous “Seralini study,” http://www.foodandwaterwatch.org/blogs/first-long-term-ge-food-study-results-are-in-and-theyre-not-pretty/ In this study University of Caen (France) molecular biologist Gilles-Eric Seralini demonstrated major health issues associated with eating Monsanto’s genetically engineered (GE) corn and the herbicide used in conjunction with it, RoundUp.
Widely covered by the media, most reports have tried to portray Seralini as a strident, ideologically driven researcher who willfully designed a study to produce a result showing that GE food is bad.
But this attack coverage seems grossly disproportionate given the realities around funding and bias in agricultural research... http://www.foodandwaterwatch.org/blogs/of-course-monsanto-says-its-safe/
