Support Séralini Team for GMO Risk Research - CRIIGEN

Committee for Independent Research and Information on Genetic Engineering

The CRIIGEN is a unique international group of experts with an interdisciplinary approach to the benefits and risks of genetic engineering and xenobiotics (e.g. pesticides and endocrine disrupters), as well as to alternative approaches for industry and regulators in order to ensure the better protection of public health. Independently of biotechnology companies, CRIIGEN conducts scientific studies, assessments and counter-assessments in order to better understand and analyse the risks attached to biotechnologies and the products thereof. Its role is at the same time to expose the inadequacies of our current assessment system – mainly in relation to public health – which makes it possible for dangerous products to continue to remain unjustifiably on the market.


A new publication from Prof G-E Séralini highlights the first Bt maize to be commercialized for animal feed was toxic for farm animals

/user/image/communiquePicture_342155.pngAn experienced German farmer of dairy herd recognized by his profession, Mr Gottfried Glockner, fed his cows between 1998 and 2002 with Bt176 maize silage. This GMO produced a new modified insecticide Bt and contained an antibiotic resistance marker gene. The only toxicological test, before being commercialized, was conducted by Novartis (subsequenly Syngenta) in the United States, and consisted by feeding 4 cows for 15 days, one cow died after a week.

The first GMO Bt crop to be commercialized was toxic to animals over the long term

A new research!

/user/image/manifestationPicture_878141.pngA new research underlines that we have ten times more gut microbes in us (100 trillions) than human cells. The pollutants in food may have an important effect on them which are well exposed, and this would provoke all kind of chronic diseases we are suffering from!
