GMO Tumor Study Author Blasts Agencies for 90 Day GMO ‘Safety’ Study

Agencies within the United States and elsewhere tend to be very distrusting when it comes to studies linking GMOs to any form of illness, demanding every specific detail from the scientific researchers and trying their best to scrutinize just a single factor within the study.

But when it comes to haphazard 90-day trials intended to prove the ‘safety‘ of genetically modified organisms, it seems that these agencies are more than willing to look the other way.

And according to the author of the recent landmark study that discovered a lifetime consumption of GMOs in rats led to not only tumors but massive amounts of organ damage, his anti-GMO research is the latest to be under fire from the same agencies that allow Monsanto’s ridiculous 90 day trial to pass as scientific gold.

In response to the mass retaliation from government agencies that let GMOs ram through the regulatory process with barely any safety measures (that are continually being reduced) and questionable Monsanto-funded ties, lead researcher of the GMO rat tumor study Professor Gilles-Eric Seralini said:
The agencies that criticise our study’s statistical weakness have never demanded from industry a 10th of the data that they now instruct us to provide them with.

In the same statement, Seralini explained how the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) actually accepted tests that lasted for 90 days or less conducted on a shockingly low four or five groups of rats for the Amflora potato — a genetically modified potato variety.

What Seralini did not mention which is of even further concern, however, is that the USDA is now limiting the safety testing needed on GMOs under a new ‘fast tracking’ process that allows for Monsanto push experimental GMOs through with barely any regulatory testing. Meanwhile, the organization has been tearing into Seralini’s research on a mission to prove the ‘safety’ of GMOs.

In Seralini’s research, 50% of the male rats and 70% of the male rats died when consuming GMO seed or drinking Roundup-laced water. Many of the rats also experienced tumors the size of golf balls that inhibited them from movement.

Now it's easier to kill a million people than to control them.

This GMO food industry is a crime of the utmost importance and all of it should be band.It's not that I am a believer in God but it does go against the faith of all religions and also creationism.What nature has taken billions of years to get right cannot be taken lightly.The fact the plants are manipulated by shooting different genes into it and have positive results is a farse and that the human body also took billions of years to allow what nature has provided to function as a provider of nutrition and that are bodies react in a positive way in the consumption of that nutrition without any side effects.Now that man has found a way to alter what nature has done in a matter of weeks does not in any way make it palatable to the human body without side effects.As long as man continues to play with such false science in as much thinking it can do a better job in providing us with better foods is a farse in it's self.We are being experimented on every time we eat this GMO creation when all along the real purpose of going in this direction is to control the food supply by means of patents and the seed of those patents so that the bottom line in th end is profit.
