REFUTATION: They Don't cite Seralini
By: Spinoza, on 18 May 2016

The linked article relies on the national Academies report. It presents also the other side that says the process is so corrupted by financial interests that you cannot trust the report. Evidence for the corruption has become clear in court cases such as this one: https://steemit.com/news/@corbettreport/court-documents-reveal-the-inner-workings-of-a-monsanto-smear-campaign

 in which court documents make clear that Monsanto heavily influenced the research and in particular caused the recall of the paper of Seralini at Al. This paper which on its face seems perfectly reasonable, found that glyphosate caused many tumors in rats exposed to it. After the paper was published, it was subsequently retracted over the complaints of the authors by the editor, without good cause being given In my opinion. It turns out that this decision was pressured by Monsanto. So there is no good reason to believe that there is anything wrong with the Seralini paper. Yet the national academies report https://www.nap.edu/catalog/23395/genetically-engineered-crops-experiences-and-prospects?utm_source=NAP_embed_book_widget&utm_medium=widget&utm_campaign=Widget_v4&utm_content=23395 

 doesn't discuss Seralini at all.  So how can  it possibly conclude they are safe?
