French genetically modified corn cancer research to be released

European Food Safety Authority will also make review public

Research from the French University of Caen which linked genetically modified corn NK603 to cancer in laboratory rats will be made public, according to researcher Gilles-Eric Seralini, after the European Food Safety Authority makes public their own review which disputed the university’s results.

The EFSA had been providing the information on request, but said that public interest has been so high it will make the review available on its website. Its conclusion was that the Seralini research failed to meet “acceptable scientific standards.”
