No, it really isn't a valid enough "Study" for anything. Well other than to promote fear and paranoia using scary pictures. Which is another aspect of the study that I find pretty disgusting. Why would you let your lab animals live so far past the point of developing the tumors? What's the purpose of not euthanizing the rats after it's clearly evident they had tumors? The only reason you let the rats live and the tumors to grow to such crazy size is if you want to use that for frightening motivation. Which is unethical and just plain shitty.

An obvious question is why Séralini would publish such obviously shoddy studies. The answer may be that negative headline stories laden with color pictures of rats with grotesque tumors are not easily forgotten even if the studies are fraudulent. Also, it may be hard for the non-expert to ignore the reported differences between control and experimental groups, and many non-experts will probably believe that where there is smoke, there is fire even if there are flaws in the experiment. But scientists understand that if the design, execution, or analysis of a study is fundamentally flawed, any conclusions are disqualified.

There is no question that the publication of Séralini’s latest attack on genetically engineered foods was a well-planned and cleverly orchestrated media event. The study was designed to produce exactly the false result that was observed and was deliberately allowed to continue until large, grotesque tumors developed. The conduct of the study, including the treatment of the animals, raises serious ethical concerns and questions of scientific misconduct.
