Conclusiveness of toxicity data and double standards August 2, 2014

Posted by sandyclaus in Food Culture, Politics.

We would like to comment on your answers Hayes, 2014a concerning the retraction of our study Seralini et al., 2012 and Hayes, 2014b by Food and Chemical Toxicology FCT. Our study investigated the long-term effects in rats of consumption of two Monsanto products, a genetically modified GM maize and its associated pesticide, Roundup, together and separately. The decision to retract the paper was reached a few months after the appointment of a former Monsanto employee as “editor for biotechnology”, a position created for him at FCT Robinson and Latham, 2013. In a recent editorial, Portier and colleagues express concern about the “dangerous erosion of the underpinnings of the peer-review process” in the case of our study Portier et al., 2014.
