Monsanto vs. Séralini

Purpose of this research was the fact that EU research on new GM products is done on test subjects – rats – just for 90 days.

His study proofs that after this period rats started to suffer from severe tumors and were intoxicated. This statement is in opposition to official statement of EU that claims maize is safe.
