I don't know if this the right place for this topic.

Very important for integrity in the scientific world.
Prof Eric Seralini has placed his career on the line to prove the dangers with GMO technology and now is being vilified by a Monsanto-engineered plot to discredit him.
If you want to make a change, here is your chance:

The letter:

To:
   

Wallace Hayes
Editor in Chief
Food and Chemical Toxicology (FCT)

Elsevier

re:  “Long term toxicity of a Roundup herbicide and a Roundup-tolerant genetically modified maize,” by GE Séralini et al, published in  Food and Chemical Toxicology 2012, 50(11),  4221-31

Your decision [1] to retract the paper is in clear violation of the international ethical norms as laid down by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), of which FCT is a member. According to COPE, the only grounds for retraction are (1) clear evidence that the findings are unreliable due to misconduct or honest error, (2) plagiarism or redundant publication, or (3) unethical research. You have already acknowledged that the paper of Séralini et al (2012) contains none of those faults.

This arbitrary, groundless retraction of a published, thoroughly peer-reviewed paper is without precedent in the history of scientific publishing, and raises grave concerns over the integrity and impartiality of science. These concerns are heightened by a sequence of events surrounding the retraction:

    the appointment of ex-Monsanto employee Richard Goodman to the newly created post of associate editor for biotechnology at FCT
    the retraction of another study finding potentially harmful effects from GMOs (which almost immediately appeared in another journal)
    the failure to retract a paper published by Monsanto scientists in the same journal in 2004, for which a gross error has been identified.

The retraction is erasing from the public record results that are potentially of very great importance for public health. It is censorship of scientific research, knowledge, and understanding, an abuse of science striking at the very heart of science and democracy, and science for the public good.

We urge you to reverse this appalling decision, and further, to issue a fulsome public apology to Seralini and his colleagues. Until you accede to our request, we will boycott Elsevier, i.e., decline to purchase Elsevier products, to publish, review, or do editorial work for Elsevier.

I changed the title, because it did not cover the subject.

No surprise. I posted some research from 2000 that proved GMO's contributed to food allergies and other health problems. There are 3 problems that humanity needs to worry about, Global Warming, GMO's and our banking system that profits from both.
