THOSE who hoped the study would go away will be disappointed. Claims that eating genetically modified maize gives rats tumours have provoked a storm in Europe.
The French government says it will suspend imports of the maize if its National Health and Safety Agency finds the results valid.
Meanwhile, the European Food Safety Authority is asking Gilles-Eric Séralini and colleagues at the University of Caen, who did the research, for detailed data not presented in the publication so it can evaluate the finding.
Whether the request is met remains to be seen, as Séralini has said the EFSA cannot evaluate the study due to a conflict of interest, having declared the maize safe.

I am torn on GMO as it has done a lot of good too, like creating edible food that can be grown in environments where it was impossible before.
I think the idea of putting poisons in them was a terrible blow to all the good they have done and was a terrible miscalculation.
