Seralini’s team wins defamation and forgery court cases on GMO and pesticide research

On 25 November 2015, the High Court of Paris indicted Marc Fellous, former chairman of France’s Biomolecular Engineering Commission, for “forgery” and “the use of forgery”, in a libel trial that he lost to Prof Gilles-Eric Séralini. The Biomolecular Engineering Commission has authorised many GM crops for consumption.

The details of the case have not yet been publicly released but a source close to the case told GMWatch that Fellous had used or copied the signature of a scientist without his agreement to argue that Séralini and his co-researchers were wrong in their reassessment of Monsanto studies.

GM Food: get the facts first

15 March, 2010

The EC has just allowed GM crops into Europe, ignoring the concerns of the public. I’ve signed a petition for independent research and a moratorium on GM crop development. With 1 million citizens’ signatures, we can make an official legal request to the European Commission. Sign below and let’s get to 1 million:

Unexpected Ecological Malfunction of GM crops causes India to call for more tests

Trevor wells of the Farmer’s Legal Action Group in South Africa, takes a further look at the threats to life of reckless science

India’s official reasons for more research and tests are welcomed. The official Indian Government Statement of the Ministry of Environmental Affairs and Forests takes into account serious concerns from the international community surrounding the build up of resistance to the beneficial Bacillus Thurengiensis.

Dr. Jack Heinemann of the University of Canterbury, New Zealand pointed out that the Bt-brinjal tests conducted in India would not meet careful international standards.

Resistance Management Strategies are essentially developed based on output profiles of stochastic models which integrate toxicological, ecological, genetic and biological parameters. Stochastic models for resistance should be developed to calculate resistance risk and devise pro-active Insect Resistance Management (IRM) strategies.

The structured refuge strategy of 5% conventional Brinjal within the ecosystems of Bt-Brinjal proposed by Monsanto is based on basic simplistic assumptions and not through defined algorithms and modeling and was unceremoniously rejected.

Mathaba News has previously reported on the serious ecological malfunction caused by the introduction of GM crops in Africa.

The African Experience, recorded below, is pertinent.

Austrian Government Study Confirms Genetically Modified (GM) Crops Threaten Human Fertility and Health Safety

Non-GMO advocates, who have warned about this infertility link along with other health risks, now seek an immediate ban of all GM foods and GM crops to protect the health of humankind and the fertility of women around the world.

(Los Angeles, CA.) – A long-term feeding study commissioned by the Austrian Agency for Health and Food Safety, managed by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Health, Family and Youth, and carried out by Veterinary University Vienna, confirms genetically modified (GM) corn seriously affects reproductive health in mice. Non-GMO advocates, who have warned about this infertility link along with other health risks, now seek an immediate ban of all GM foods and GM crops to protect the health of humankind and the fertility of women around the world.
