Over 1240 scientist signatories have demanded that a study previously published on the toxic effects of GMO maize and RoundUp that was retracted by the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology (FCT) be reinstated. This is a massive backlash against an industry that has tried to silence well-qualified scientists from publishing the truth about GMOs. These scientists and others plan to boycott Elsevier -a world-leading provider of scientific information until the journal, FCT, reinstates a study carried out by Gilles Eric Séralini et al., which was been debated throughout scientific and non-scientific circles alike.
The suppression of scientific evidence for commercial gain should be punishable by criminal charges. The tobacco companies got away with this for nearly 30 years before the world woke up to the problem, and even then the response was insufficient. The risks posed by the epigenetic response of plant DNA to foreign genes is potentially catastrophic, and the precautionary principle should apply. Censoring science is playing with peoples lives. Professor Gilles-Eric Séralini is a biologist at the University of Caen. He published a study on GMOs which clearly showed how damaging they were to health, and pointing out that Agricultural GMOs do not exist independently of pesticides. That study can be found here.
