For more than a decade now, scientists working in the GM field have mounted vicious personal attacks upon serious scientists who have had the temerity to discover “uncomfortable things about GM crops and foods.” These people have been severely punished by the Agrochemical Corporations, presumably as a warning to others; like farmers hanging dead crows on a line to deter their fellow corvids from eating the crops.
Comprehensive information regarding government collusion and the relentless push for GMOs throughout the world. What Séralini’s team discovered in rats is happening in humans.

Goodman, a former Monsanto scientist and an affiliate of the GMO industry-funded group, the International Life Sciences Institute, to the specially created post of associate editor for biotechnology at the journal, early this year.
