Pay close attention to what you are about to see. These images will be seen around the world. These rats have been fed with transgenic corn during their entire life cycle. The tumors they suffer from are enormous. The study that revealed the effect of the GMOs on the health of these rats has just been completed. It benefited from exceptional financional and technical means. GMOs: The moment of truth We were able to witness the study in its entirety, it lasted for two years, following years of doubt and controversies, will we finally know the truth about GMOs? Would we than be faced with a health crisis of global proportions? Paris, December 16th, 2011, CRIIGEN offices Committee for Research and Independent Information for Genetic Engineering Presentation of the results collected by Professor Seralini during his study focused on determining the potential harmfullness of the GMO corn Nk603 for humans and animals. This is the longest study to have been carried on GMO and we have also carried out a joined study on the most used pesticide in the world, the RoundUp, which is a herbicide. It belongs to the main pesticide category. We have spent over a year trying to obtain transgenic corn, because no GMO manufactuers were willing to provide them. This is because Monsanto requires contracts to be signed stipulating that the seeds must not be used for testing and an arrangement must be made prior to the testing. We wanted our study to be independent. This is the first time that a two year study has been conducted on GMO. And there lies the big difference. Futhermore, we tried to evaluate a maximum of biochemical and biological parameters with repeated bloodtests, weighting of the speciments and urine tests. We studied the hepatic and urinary parameters, as well as the blood parameters, all the paramaters that can be studied. We also studied the hormonal parameters, which has never been done in previous studies. This experiment is a world premier. Up until now, the corn Nk603, the very one selected for the study, had only been tested over a three month period, and that in a test envienronment entirely controlled by Monsanto, its manufactuer. Futhermore, concerning the RoundUp, also manufactured by Monsanto, and which is used for growing corn only its active agent, the glyphosate have been assed. But one needs to understand that the manufactuers, in order to enable the active agent to penetrate the plant cell successfully use additives that are sometimes more harmfull than the actual glyphosate. We have two clear objectives, firstly to conduct the studies exactly according to international requirements and making sure to be very thorough when analyzing the results. Secondly, we want to determine if there are secondary effects. The only way to do that is to carry out tests on animals and than to examine all the blood parameters, while paying close attention to their organs. At this stage, it might prove usefull to know how exactly what GMOs are used for. It is a plant that has been developed either to produce its own pesticide, or to be tolerant to a herbicide, thus enabling it to be exposed to masive doses of it without dying. One can understand how GMOs could be usefull to farmers, for example they would be able to spray their entire field with RoundUp, killing all the weeds in the process and never harming the genetically modified plant. On the other hand, it is hard to see the benefits for the consumer, who will effectively be injected with substances coming from the plant that has absorbed pesticides. That is why it is crucial to test not only the GMO, but also the GMO with its residue and the pesticide on its own. This type of testing has never been done before, because the corporations doing the tests would do them on GMOs with the RoundUp, which meant that we had no idea of what between the GMO and the RoundUp caused the pathologies. Or they did them on GMOs, without specifying that this was the case. So what we have decided to do is to adress the question: Are we dealing with the effects of GMO, or the pesticide? During the last 10 years of testing, the national comissions did not envisage a pesticide effect. Therefore, Europe does not even demand that chronical toxicity tests be systematically carried out on animals, and when they are required, it is the manufactuers, that decide the protocol to be used. For example, the Amflora potato was only tested on a group of thirty rats, ten of which were being fed the GMO. The Monsanto corn was tested on 400 rats, 80 of them were fed the transgenic plant, but only 40 of them were than subjected to blood tests. Either way, none of these studies lasted longer than 90 days. What is represented by this figures is certaing groups of rats. Male and female - have ingested GMO corn. GMO corn with RoundUp rezidue. And RoundUp on its own. Everytime we go up a level, a rat dies. The limit is 10, due to the number of rats that constitute a group. The dotted line represents the females of the group who died, but had completely normal diet. Only two animals died spontanously, after 550 days. On the other hand, every female that has been fed on the GMO, GMO with RoundUp or RoundUp diet, has died more frequently than the other rats. Some will challange the relevance of such results but what is undeniable is that in the group that has been exposed to the GMOs, there is a 600% increase, or 6x times more deaths compared to the control group. As far as medicinal biology is concerned, there is no need for futher testing. An important fact is that all the studies carried out on the rats are done over a three month period, so it happens that none of the effects are visible untill the fourth month. This is fundamental in understanding that studies conducted over three month period are useless. This conclusion is easily understandable. It could be said that their only use is to suit the consciousnes. Every rat out of the 200 that were tested was disected by professor Seralini's team. They did this to discover how exactly what had affected their organs. The purpose behind this was to identify the way each diet - GMO, GMO and RoundUp, and RoundUp on its own - had acted on the metabolism of each animal, focusing of the development rate of the tumors, that - and this comes as no surprise - only started to manifest themeselves after the initial three month period. This figure represents a number of palpable tumors contracted by the animals during the experiment. Here we can see the rats subjected to GMOs, compared to those with regular diet. As you can see, very few males have contracted tumors. This is due to them being more resistant to the testing process. What these figures show, that each step up represents a lagre tumor, which can measure 17mm by 17mm. For rat, these measurements are collosal. It would equate to a tumor of this size if seen on the human being. Its enormous. After having studied these tumors, it can be said that 94% of them take effect in the mammory glands, which would equate to breast cancer in a woman. We are faced with renal (kidney) tumors for the males, but not only - some males also suffer from mammory tumors. This points towards a hormonal effect that isnt affected by the dosage. Sixty percent of the breast cancer cases are caused by hormonal deficiences. Professor Seralini's study holds one last surprise for us. And this is a major one. Up until now, one could have thought that the main cause of death for the tested rats was coming from the pesticide added to the corn, but what the study highlighted - and this for the first time ever - is the fact that the transgenesis itself could have killed the rats. What this means is that just by interfiering with the genome of the plant in order to modify it, we are faced with reprecautions that no-one could have anticipaded. [WRONG, MANY PEOPLE DID, WAKE UP] This is enough to make us reconsider all the scientific presets that lead to the creation of the GMOs. RoundUp had never been tested separately. Once conducting cellural studies, we saw that the cells of the liver, embryos, kidneys, placenta and the umbilical cord died much faster and so we coud deduce that there was a toxic effect on the organism. What can be said is that there is an increase in death due to the GMOs and RoundUp. The biggest surprise came when we realized that GMOs without any RoundUp rezidue were responsible for an increase in the death rate of females and of some males. This could be the result of the GMO gene, that has been badly assimilated by the plant and that therefore resulted in a negative effect or due to a secondary metabolical effect. What that means is that we are dealing with a GMO in particular. The modification of a cereal or a GMO corn, with regard to the genes inserted to the corn, to make it a GMO corn, can result in different effects. It is not because a certain GMO has a particular effect, that other GMOs will have an effect, but certainly some may even have more of an impact. What is alarming is that this is a GMO that is being eaten by the Americans, but also the GMO that has been approved for importation by european agencies, including the french ones - and that, obviously, contaminates our food. Nowdays, only two types of GMOs are being produced in a few european countries. One is corn and the other potato. But what about the 7 million tonnes of transgenic soy that are unloaded each year in european ports? This soy is used to feed our cattle, but it also makes its way into a number of food stuffs. What we want to achieve with this study is a moratorium. The situation is serious enough and we are not going to eat everything and anything. We imported without knowing what is being imported, and the United states have produced crops without knowing what they were producing. There needs to be studies of this kind. And GMO manufactuers need to conduct them before comercializing their products. A moratorium on growing GMOs has been approved by most european countries. Now that we know the results of the study conducted by professor Seralini, could it be time to extend this moratorium to all the GMO used in many of our foods? To estabilish an undeniable scientific truth, one needs teams, time and means. Some will say that it takes too much time and that it is too expensive, but had we taken this precaution, could we have not avoided recent sanitory scandals? Will GMOs be responsible yet again for calamity scenario? And while we are waiting for scientific certainties, evidently, this is a risk we cannot afford to take.

GMO - safest way to cull the population. Also, you get to profit from the masive tumors and stuff. You know.. classic.
