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

Wednesday 13 June 2018

/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.

Roundup : toxic to soil fungus at doses well below agricultural dilution - Velot & al. 2016 by Claire Robinson

Thursday 28 April 2016

/user/image/communiquePicture_793127.pngNew study raises concerns about soil health and casts further doubt on doctrine of substantial equivalence for GM Roundup Ready plants, reports Claire Robinson.

Roundup is toxic to a soil fungus at doses well below recommended agricultural dilutions, according to a new scientific study published in the journal Environmental Science and Pollution Research.

Co-formulants of glyphosate herbicides are endocrine disruptors

Monday 29 February 2016

/user/image/communiquePicture_586589.pngThe approval process for glyphosate herbicide is disputed because the commercial formulations contain co-formulants, which are more toxic than glyphosate alone.

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

Tuesday 26 January 2016

/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

Monday 25 January 2016

/user/image/communiquePicture_522025.pngContext: The first GM maize to be commercialized for animal feed, Bt176 from Novartis (subsequently Syngenta), caused various controversies, beginning in 1996. Grown on a few thousand hectares, it was quickly withdrawn from the market.

Tests carried out for the commercialization of chemicals and GMOs are invalidated by the diets of laboratory rats

Monday 6 July 2015


The paper accepted by PLOS ONE has been published finally on july 2nd and not on june 17th. No change in results, but the abstract has been shortened by the editor on the regulatory consequences and with precisions of our funding for our other works.

Laboratory rats are frequently used for testing chemicals and genetically modified (GMO) foods, as the last step before commercialization in order to determine effects on mammalian health and predict risk in humans. Such chemicals include pesticides (which often are endocrine disruptors or toxic to the nervous system), plasticizers, and food additives. Some are suspected of being carcinogenic, and others are gradually being banned after having poisoned people and the ecosystem.

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

Wednesday 17 September 2014

/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.

Republication of Professor Séralini’s study: Time to be responsible

/user/image/communiquePicture_511700.pngPress release


Paris, 24 June 2014 - The 2012 study on the chronic toxicity of Roundup herbicide and the genetically modified Roundup-tolerant maize NK603 by Professor Gilles-Eric Séralini and colleagues has been republished by the Springer group, with open access to its raw data. Now there will be a few embarrassing questions for the authorities.

GMO: Monsanto invited to assess itself with 3 million Euros of public money

Wednesday 28 May 2014

Press Release

Launched in July 2013 by French health agencies, the study on the toxicological risks of GMOs (Risk'OGM) centres on scientific fraud and is a waste of public money. Worse, Monsanto, whose products will be studied, was invited to participate in the dialogue body created for this study.

Editor of Food and chemical Toxicology is obliged to give Prof. Séralini’s team right of reply after retracting NK603 and Roundup study

Monday 19 May 2014



Press Release

The editor of Food and Chemical Toxicology (FCT) uses double standards when it comes to publishing in favour of the industry, Prof. Séralini’s team say. Now the journal’s publisher Elsevier has compelled him to publish a right of reply by the Séralini team. The CRIIGEN denouces a threat against " the quality and independence of scientific editorial processes".
