The following is an edited excerpt from a blog post by geneticist Kevin Folta

The Moms Across America “stunning corn” is old news. In short, anti-GE websites everywhere showed that GM corn was full of formaldehyde and had no nutrients. The data presented were so fake that anyone with half a brain could see right through it. They were soil data, and likely faked soil data. “Moms” promoted, and rabidly defended, fake results as authentic. Still do.

Last week, I offered to personally pay for a replicate of the experiment.

Despite an initially positive reaction, the folks behind the “stunning corn” study retreated. They don’t want independent replications, they want to do their own replications, where they can control how much formaldehyde the soak the corn in, where they can manipulate the numbers.
