    Default Deceptive reporting of GMO90+ EU-funded feeding study on GM maize

    An EU taxpayer-funded rat feeding study on two GM maize varieties found significant differences in the rats that ate the GM diets. These differences could indicate adverse health impacts, but the authors dismissed them as not biologically relevant, without proper scientific justification.
    In fact the relevance of the changes is unknown because the study was too short to measure long-term effects, which can take one to two years to show up, and because it was confined to one generation of rats.

    Spot on. I can think of at least one multi-generational "study" undertaken by a Danish pig farmer, with disastrous complications in the third or fourth generation.
