The next time somebody tries to tell you that “science” is the reason why genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) are approved for use in many countries around the world, you can point them to the latest unscientific decision made by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), which has openly rejected a landmark GMO study showing that GM corn consumption can lead to the development of cancerous tumors.
As predicted, the EFSA, which is basically the European version of the corrupt U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), announced recently that the infamous GM corn study out of France “cannot be regarded as scientifically sound” because of alleged “inadequacies in its design, reporting and analysis.” Case closed, if you will.
With the stroke of a pen, in other words, this corporate-influenced bureaucracy basically discarded one of the only independent, long-term studies to have ever been conducted on the safety of a GMO, and one that just so happened to show incredible health dangers associated with its consumption. As a result, millions of Europeans will now likely be exposed to this deadly “Frankenfood” whether they like it or not.
In case you missed it, researchers from the University of Caen discovered back in September that rats fed Monsanto’s Roundup-Ready, NK603 GM corn, which is already widely cultivated in the U.S., for several months developed severe organ damage and behemoth cancer tumors — and most of them died prematurely compared to rats not fed the GMO.

Corporate hegemony once again trumps sound science
Following the study’s publishing in the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology, Russia immediately banned all imports of GM corn (http://www.naturalnews.com/037328_Russia_GMO_Monsanto.html), and many other European nations had planned to follow suit.
But the Monsanto lobby apparently took swift action behind the scenes to make sure this never happened, as the EFSA basically declared the study to be null and void for the benefit of Monsanto.
