1. Most criticisms of Séralini’s study wrongly assume it was a badly designed cancer study. It wasn’t. It was a chronic toxicity study – and a well-designed and well-conducted one.

2. Séralini’s study is the only long-term study on the commercialized GM maize NK603 and the pesticide (Roundup) it is designed to be grown with.

3. Séralini used the same strain of rat (Sprague-Dawley, SD) that Monsanto used in its 90-day studies on GM foods and its long-term studies on glyphosate, the chemical ingredient of Roundup, conducted for regulatory approval.

Rats used in the Seralini long-term study.

If health problems occurred in animals in the Séralini study from genetically modified food, what do you think it’s doing to human? The answer is, we don’t know. The reason for this is because corporations that own the patents to these “novel” GM foods prohibit the release for research purposes on humans – and for good reason – because the large food and chemical giants like Monsanto who pushed GMOs onto the unsuspected millions of people in the U.S., would be liable for damages should anything adverse be found to cause harm in the human population.
