I know that ad hominem attacks arenít valid, but I canít resist pointing out that Seraliniís co-author, Joel de Vendomois, is a homeopath, with a ďHomeopathy and Acupuncture DiplomaĒ, a double dose of quackery in a single degree. Seralini has also published a book about the supposed dangers of GMOs, and he and de Vendomois are the lead scientists at CRIIGEN, an organization devoted to lobbying against GMOs. Of course, even if Seralini and de Vendomois are bad scientists, and even if they have a strong bias, their paper isnít necessarily wrong. Itís wrong simply because the science is wrong.

Letís be clear about the science here. Genetic modification of foods is a powerful technology that can be incredibly beneficial. The recent development of salmon that can grow faster is an example: these salmon (developed by a company called AquaBounty) will make fish farming more efficient, and thereby help preserve the perilously endangered wild fish species in our oceans. On the other hand, GM technology can be used, as Monsanto has done, simply to allow farmers to use more pesticides, which doesnít seem to benefit anyone other than the pesticide producers. Itís unfortunate that Monsantoís behavior has been used as an excuse to give all GMOs a bad name.

Now we have a bad study done by anti-GMO scientists who have allowed their political agenda to trump their scientific judgment. What a mess.
****ing exactly!
