It hijacks regulatory and policy making bodies. With help from the US Government, it assumes strategic importance in international trade negotiations and is then able to set a policy and research agenda, as has been the case in India with the Knowledge Initiative on Agriculture and the funding of agricultural research within the country.

Monsanto Double Standards and the Crumbling “Scientific Myths” of the GMO Biotech Sector

Monsanto are a despicable corporation.

I'm undecided if their devotion to our demise is intentional or merely for profit.

Thanks for posting this. I'm glad the opposing field is getting heard. I found the snippets below to be of particular interest:

Professor Séralini says:
“We are forced to conclude that the decision to withdraw our paper was based on unscientific double standards applied by the editor. These double standards can only be explained by pressure from the GMO and agrochemical industry to force acceptance of GMOs and Roundup. The most flagrant illustration is the appointment of Richard Goodman, a former Monsanto employee, onto the FCT editorial board, soon after the publication of the NK603 study. Worse, this pro-industry bias also affects regulatory authorities, such as EFSA (European Food Safety Authority), which gives favourable opinions on risky products based on mediocre studies commissioned by the companies wishing to commercialize the products, as well as systematically dismissing the findings of independent scientists which cast doubt on their safety"


( 2 points from the main findings)

The report’s main findings are as follows:
1) The report debunks the claims by pro-GMO lobbyists that 1,700 studies show GM foods are as safe. The studies show nothing of the sort. Many of them not only show evidence of risk, but the review also excludes or glosses over important scientific controversies over GMO safety issues. (See page102 of the new report.)
2) A review purportedly showing that GM foods are safe on the basis of long-term animal studies actually shows evidence of risk and uses unscientific double standards to reach a conclusion that is not justified by the data. (p. 161)

Monsanto makes a product that is taking over the global food supply by contaminating crops and if that wasn't enough, they want to make everyone pay them for it! How can anyone NOT view them as the most dangerous company in the world?

"Coexistence" is a lie and this is nothing short of world domination.

Then it would be unchecked Marxist/Social-Corporatism.

The food supply is bad enough with the extra radiation.

Nobody knows for sure what the GMO crap will cause.

Seralini is still pissed that he was found to be a bad scientist - and because his "target" was Monsanto therefore all the anti-GMO/USA/capitalism types automatically side with him without bothering to check whether he's right or not.

Well here's a wakeup call - Monsanto being evil doesn't make Seralini right - he still screwed up his experiment, his results are still rubbish, and always will be because he conducted a poor experiment!

The whole GMO science is another case and point of how the religion of Science is deeply flawed, sure the scietific method is accurate, it is the application of it that is the problem, whenever money controls the studies you will not have legit Science you will simply have agenda based bull#!

Ever wondered if we're looking at the wrong side of the coin?
