GM Watch: EU funded rat feeding studies do NOT refute the Seralini study

“The important shortcoming of the EU studies on GMOs is that the pesticide component of the Séralini study – measuring the long-term effects of Roundup herbicide – was not included in any of these studies. Séralini’s experiment remains the only feeding study to have evaluated the effects of long-term consumption of low, realistic doses of a pesticide in its commercial formulation. These results remain in the scientific literature and have never been refuted.

It seems that the pro-GMO lobbyists were banking on the assumption that people wouldn’t actually read the studies but would just believe the soundbites they supplied in press releases, summaries, and quotes to the press.
