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.
Conflicts of interests, confidentiality and censorship in health risk assessment: the example of an herbicide and a GMOWednesday 25 June 2014

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.
For the first time ever, a GMO and pesticide were evaluated * for their health impacts more fully and completely as health agencies, governments, industry and other researchers have ever done. The results are alarming. These are two very representative products: a Roundup tolerant transgenic maize, a modification shared by more than 80% of GMO food, and the Roundup itself, the most widely used pesticide in the world.
Disturbing breaches of scientific ethics, as shown by correspondence with the editor of the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology (FCT) and the Committee On Publication Ethics (COPE) released today
Scientists from around the world have united to condemn the retraction by the editor of the Elsevier journal Food and Chemical Toxicology (FCT) of the pioneering study by Prof Sï¿½ralini's team on GM maize and Roundup herbicide.
Here we answer point by point criticism by agencies (control product), consultants and scientists, received by the publisher or by ourselves.

Two films to understand the CRIIGEN study, how harmful NK603 maize and Roundup are for human health, and how GMOs are evaluated.
A two-year study. Very alarming results on the proven harm of NK603 maize for rats that were given this food. Roundup harm is confirmed.
