Remember the Seralini study? Rats fed GMOs, Monsanto’s Roundup Ready corn, developed tumors. Some died. The study was published in the journal, Food and Chemical Toxicology. Pictures published. A wave of biotech-industry criticism ensued. Pressure built... The journal retracted the study. Why? Unethical? Plagiarized? Dishonest?  No, he used rats which (supposedly) had an inherent tendency to develop tumors (the Sprague-Dawley strain), and used too few. Smell a rat?

The study adds to an intensifying public debate over the impact of genetically modified crops, which are widely used by U.S. and Latin American farmers and in many other countries around the world.
