Committee for Independent Research and Information on Genetic Engineering

CRIIGEN is an independent non-profit organization of scientific counter-expertise to study GMOs, pesticides and impacts of pollutants on health and environment, and to develop non polluting alternatives.

It is particularly involved in the case of GMOs and is totally independent of biotechnological companies and governments.

Response by Delaney et al. on the contamination of their control diets

/user/image/communiquePicture_039695.pngIn July 2014, the team of Prof. Séralini published an article 1 in the scientific journal Food and Chemical Toxicology (FCT) in which they challenged the conclusions of researchers from DuPont 2, following the publication of their toxicity study on a GMO. The counter-expertise report produced by Professor Séralini and his team highlighted the presence of residues of Roundup and GMOs in the pellets used to feed the rats.

Cancer deaths double in Argentina's GMO agribusiness areas

Sharply increased levels of crop spraying in Argentina's most intensively farmed areas have resulted in a public health disaster, writes Lawrence Woodward, with large increases in cancer incidence. And it's all the result of the widespread use of GMO crops engineered for herbicide resistance.

Reuters : "Angry mothers meet U.S. EPA over concerns with Roundup herbicide"

Conflicts of interests, confidentiality and censorship in health risk assessment: the example of an herbicide and a GMO

/user/image/ogmPicture_178365.pngSpringer Open : Environmental Sciences Europe 2014, 26:13 doi:10.1186/s12302-014-0013-6


The present opinion is a summary of the debate resulting in this retraction, as it is a historic example of conflicts of interest in the scientific assessments of products commercialized worldwide. Censorship of research into health risks undermines the value and the credibility of science; thus, we republish our paper.

Conclusion : Our findings imply that long-term (2 year) feeding trials need to be conducted to thoroughly evaluate the safety of GM foods and pesticides in their full commercial formulations.

The present opinion is a summary of the debate resulting in this retraction, as it is a historic example of conflicts of interest in the scientific assessments of products commercialized worldwide. We also show that the decision to retract cannot be rationalized on any discernible scientific or ethical grounds. Censorship of research into health risks undermines the value and the credibility of science; thus, we republish our paper.
