Le Criigen fête ses 20 ans
Le Comité de Recherche et d’Information Indépendantes sur le Génie Génétique est en pleine force de l’âge : il souffle ses 20 bougies !

Beaucoup d’eau a coulé depuis que ce 1° juin 1999 Mme Corrine LEPAGE, le Professeur Gilles Eric SERALINI, le Professeur Jean Marie PELT et Mme Chantal JACQUET ont créé cette belle association. Cela se fête.

Et nous avons choisi de célébrer cet anniversaire conjointement avec les ONG et associations qui ont soutenu et qui soutiennent le CRIIGEN, tout au long de l’année, sous la forme de conférences/débats dans diverses régions.

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.


Some detractors of the "Séralini 2012" study continue to discredit this study. They forget with obvious bad faith to "compare what is comparable"!

/user/image/communiquePicture_735941.pngIn fact, the results of the GRACE, G-TwYST and OGM90 + studies do not call into question the results of the "Séralini 2012" study because the protocols and objectives are too different.

The Séralini affair – or the secret history of a torpedo

Shocking Report from Medical Insiders by F. William Engdahl

/user/image/manifestationPicture_651643.pngA shocking admission by the editor of the world’s most respected medical journal, The Lancet, has been virtually ignored by the mainstream media. Dr. Richard Horton, Editor-in-chief of the Lancet recently published a statement declaring that a shocking amount of published research is unreliable at best, if not completely false, as in, fraudulent.

"European Parliament Vote Supports Vital New Restrictions on Glyphosate Herbicides" April 13, 2016

/user/image/actualitePicture_804099.pngThe European Parliament vote in April 2016 that supported a new 7 year approval for the World’s most used herbicide glyphosate, did in fact have a silver lining despite the disappointment of some groups who were targeting a full ban on the probable human carcinogen:

France bans some glyphosate herbicide formulations over health fears ! April 13, 2016
