Analysis of the FAO Report by Jean-Paul GUYOMARC'H
How will the various governments react to such a claim?
Two possibilities:1. Either, they will either say that the leaders of FAO have completely lost their minds and their experts have given in to an acute crisis of attachment to the past or that they have been bribed by some secret power which is trying to destroy the foundations of the modern, progressive and civilised Western Society. In that case, it seems extremely urgent that State Members cease immediately financing such an international institution whose ramifications are spreading all over the planet and risk to destabilize the civilized world. Indeed, the FAO, or Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, is an organization representing 189 Member States (plus the European Community) and it is financed by the contributions of its members and it employs 3600 people all over the planet.

Controversial effects on health reported after subchronic toxicity test : a confidential rat 90 day feeding study
By Pr. Gilles-Eric SERALINI
Some tests have been done by biotech companies in order to study the safety/toxicity of GMOs with laboratory animals used as mammalian models, as is now done with drugs and pesticides ; this is to anticipate unintended effects on mammals or humans consuming these GMOs. Unfortunately, these tests were confidential and very short (90 days), unlike how this is done for pesticides (2 years), although MON 863 is designed as a GMO to produce a new pesticide. As confidentiality on the tests has been broken by the German Court, a deeper examination of the crude data can now be made independently, allowing new expertise on the statistical conclusions of Monsanto, which were the object of controversies. At the time of wirting these lines, we do have the data file computerized. This was a prerequisite for a new statistical analysis. This work is now in progress. We are now in the process of for a few months analysing in detail the data, and making a new statistical study. Consequently, the observations which follow do not constitute, in any manner, a statistical analysis of the data from MON 863. On the one hand, they show the importance of carrying out this statistical analysis in a serious and independent way, and on the other hand, demonstrate the necessity of doing again the EU risk assessment of MON 863 before any decision on market authorisation can be taken.
