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.

House approves EPA 'secret science' bills despite White House veto threat

/user/image/dossierPicture_666139.pngDefying a white house veto threat, the U.S. House of Representatives has approved two mostly Republican-backed bills that would change how the Environmental Protection Agency uses scientific data and advice in writing its regulations. Many Democrats, scientific organizations, and environmental groups have called the bills thinly veiled attempts to weaken future regulations and favor industry.

Culinary pleasures or hidden poisons?

/user/image/actualitePicture_850985.pngFor decades, science has invited itself onto our dinner plates. This book asks it to sit down to dinner. International industries have systematized the use of chemicals: spreading them on the fields and using them in the breeding, processing, packaging, and distribution of our food. They constantly invade our bodies. This process has expanded to such a level that it may influence aspects of the future of humanity and the planet.

“No scientific consensus on GMO safety” say 300 scientists in peer-reviewed journal

/user/image/dossierPicture_553140.pngPress release, European Network of Scientists for Social and Environmental Responsibility (ENSSER), 29 Jan 2015

A statement signed by over 300 scientists and legal experts to the effect that there is “No consensus” on the safety of genetically modified (GM) crops and foods has been published in a peer-reviewed open access journal, Environmental Sciences Europe. It now belongs to the body of open peer-reviewed scientific literature and stands as a citable publication.

Financial support needed : help CRIIGEN to carry on


Pr Gilles-Eric Seralini, Scientific Board President and Joel Spiroux de Vendomois, Adminitrative Board President of CRIIGEN


"To respond to GMO and pesticide lobbies attacks, while continuing our research, we were obliged to recruit a member of staff tasked with the job of dealing with communication and all external relations. This appointment - indispensable if we are to sustain our workload with peace of mind - is expensive for a not-for-profit organization like ours and is threatened in the short term due to a lack of funding. Today, your help is crucial to help us to carry on and save this strategic position ! "

Cancer due to bad luck? Comment by Prof Gilles-Eric Séralini


A number of questions were raised in the media after the publication of the article by Tomasetti and Vogelstein, based in Baltimore, MD, USA (Science 347, 6217, 78-81, 2015), on the alleged role of chance (or “bad luck”) in cancer. This article actually shows a strong correlation between the number of cell divisions found in an organ to renew the tissues and the number of cancers

Cardiotoxic electrophysiological effects of the herbicide Roundup® in rat and rabbit ventricular myocardium in vitro


Roundup had toxic effects on the hearts of rabbits and rats in a new study led by Steeve Gress and conducted with Pr René Rouet and Prof Gilles-Eric Seralini at the University of Caen, France

The findings of the new study may provide an explanation for anecdotal reports from hunters of rabbits dying suddenly after crossing a Roundup-sprayed field, and from pet owners of dogs dying of seizures after exposure to Roundup-sprayed lawns – as well as cases of heart problems documented in people after Roundup poisoning.

Support Séralini Team for New GMO & Pesticide Risk Research. Your health is at stake


By supporting our team, you will be contributing to experiments on:


- Measuring contamination of foodstuffs by pesticides and GMO
- Measuring contamination of laboratory animal diets by Roundup residues and other environmental pollutants
- Starting a research program on Roundup bioaccumulation in the organs kept from the 2012 toxicity study and other experiments
