105 Scientists Slam GMO-Rat-Study Retraction

Catherine J. Frompovich
Activist Post

What kind of hornet’s nest was opened up for the GM industry in view of the retraction of the two year "Long term toxicity of a Roundup herbicide and a Roundup-tolerant genetically modified maize", by G E Séralini et al, published in Food and Chemical Toxicology 2012, 50(11), 4221-31?

According to the article published December 5, 2013 in the Ecologist,
This arbitrary, groundless retraction of a published, thoroughly peer-reviewed paper is without precedent in the history of scientific publishing, and raises grave concerns over the integrity and impartiality of science. These concerns are heightened by a sequence of events surrounding the retraction: 
  • the appointment of ex-Monsanto employee Richard Goodman to the newly created post of associate editor for biotechnology at FCT 
  • the retraction of another study finding potentially harmful effects from GMOs (which almost immediately appeared in another journal) 
  • the failure to retract a paper published by Monsanto scientists in the same journal in 2004, for which a gross error has been identified. [1]
The first bulleted item apparently speaks volumes as to Monsanto’s tactics in gaining corporate-style control over many segments of society, commerce, and government. Shouldn’t someone question the revolving door policy Monsanto’s former chief lobbyist Michael Taylor [2] has enjoyed at federal agencies, and now as FDA Deputy Commissioner for Foods? Can that be why we have FDA-mandated “No GMO Labeling of Foods”?

Then there’s Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, a former Monsanto employee – he was a company lawyer. [3] Does a corporate lawyer position warrant enough experience to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court?



The third bulleted item above ought to nail it down for everyone as to what’s really going on. It’s a shame what’s happening in science, the corporate world, and government during these trying times.

However, readers may recall that I wrote “GMOs: What Do the Stars Say Astrologically” back on August 2, 2013. Does astrology know more than we give it credit for?

Another publication, The Economist, also did a number on the apparent unethical retraction, and titled it tongue-in-cheek-like, “Smelling a rat.” [4]

Hopefully, the blatant shenanigans that go on in the name of vested interests to obfuscate serious scientific issues or prevail in control mechanisms that affect everyone’s well-being, e.g., the very food we eat, will turn the tide for consumers understanding GM issues, as it apparently has for those 105 very erudite and courageous scientists. Applause, applause, applause!

You have to give credit to those amoral swine. They get all the activist groups to waste resources trying to just get the filth to LABEL GMO....When they should be hitting the streets in the millions to OUTLAW them altogether in this dying republic.
As their "shill" Lenin said while leading the slaughter of 60,000,000 Russian Christians/Muslims; The best way to control the opposition is to lead them. How true.

There is a day of accountability which the chiefs of corporations, blinded by their lust for power and wealth at the expense of human lives, will have to face one day soon.

Er, dead Republic?
Is there any sign of life in the Executive, the Judiciary, or the Legislature?
One single, solitary flicker?
Or is it now a thoughtcrime even to look?
We know from 1984 that the proles will never rebel. They lack the words to even formulate the concept of rebellion. All they need is a versificator to keep turning out new and improved versions of Miley Cyrus, and they will rest content.
Room 101 awaits.

This same scenario is what happened to Dr. Andrew Wakefield.
The power of these corporations to censor the truth is beyond criminal.

The rulers of Earth don't care about humans or accountability to the humans on Earth as they've got places in their secret deep underground military bases waiting for Nibiru or as NASA like to say incorrectly Comet ISON. Nibiru is a brown dwarf star with seven planets plus moons and debris field filled with thousands of rocks heading towards Earth.

Comet ISON is Nibiru

[ Smiles ] GMOs are simply bad!

Impeach former Monsanto employee and Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. A Grand Jury hearing should be conducted by the House of Representatives and if the House vote passes by a simple majority, the defendant Thomas is "impeached," and proceeds to trial in the Senate. Supreme Court Justices have been impeached in the past and it's past due for another impeachment. The Court needs to know that they are not above the law; that "special interests" should not be allowed to persuade court rulings and corrupt constitutional law.

If we're gonna test toxins on rats, let's test these toxins on the rats that run Monsanto.

Did anyone here read the findings of the Séralini study? It found that rats given the highest doses of GM maize and Roundup actually had better survival rates than those given low doses.

The conclusion drawn wasn't congruent with the results, nor was it statistically significant.
