Noted European scientist defends embattled maize GM study

Scientists have hit back against the criticism levelled at the research linking the world’s best-selling weedkiller and a strain of GM maize – both developed by Monsanto – with tumours, multiple organ damage and premature death in rats.

The peer-reviewed paper, published yesterday in Food & Chemical Toxicology Journal, was the first to examine the long-term effects of Roundup and Roundup resistant NK603. Scientists from the University of Caen, France, found that rats exposed to even the smallest amounts developed  mammary tumours and severe liver and kidney damage as early as four months in males, and seven months for females, compared with 23 and 14 months respectively for a control group.
