Submission + - Rat study links GM corn to cancer (phys.org)

phme writes: French scientists led by Gilles-Eric Seralini at the University of Caen (France) unveiled a study that said rats fed with NK603 corn or exposed to the weedkiller used with it developed tumors. NK603 is a corn made by US agribusiness giant Monsanto. It has been engineered to make it resistant to Monsanto's herbicide Roundup. The study, published in the peer-reviewed journal Food and Chemical Toxicology, says it is the first to look at rats over their normal lifespan of two years.
