Support Séralini Team for GMO Risk Research - CRIIGEN

Committee for Independent Research and Information on Genetic Engineering

The CRIIGEN is a unique international group of experts with an interdisciplinary approach to the benefits and risks of genetic engineering and xenobiotics (e.g. pesticides and endocrine disrupters), as well as to alternative approaches for industry and regulators in order to ensure the better protection of public health. Independently of biotechnology companies, CRIIGEN conducts scientific studies, assessments and counter-assessments in order to better understand and analyse the risks attached to biotechnologies and the products thereof. Its role is at the same time to expose the inadequacies of our current assessment system – mainly in relation to public health – which makes it possible for dangerous products to continue to remain unjustifiably on the market.


Cancer due to bad luck? Comment by Prof Gilles-Eric Séralini


A number of questions were raised in the media after the publication of the article by Tomasetti and Vogelstein, based in Baltimore, MD, USA (Science 347, 6217, 78-81, 2015), on the alleged role of chance (or “bad luck”) in cancer. This article actually shows a strong correlation between the number of cell divisions found in an organ to renew the tissues and the number of cancers

Cardiotoxic electrophysiological effects of the herbicide Roundup® in rat and rabbit ventricular myocardium in vitro


Roundup had toxic effects on the hearts of rabbits and rats in a new study led by Steeve Gress and conducted with Pr René Rouet and Prof Gilles-Eric Seralini at the University of Caen, France

The findings of the new study may provide an explanation for anecdotal reports from hunters of rabbits dying suddenly after crossing a Roundup-sprayed field, and from pet owners of dogs dying of seizures after exposure to Roundup-sprayed lawns – as well as cases of heart problems documented in people after Roundup poisoning.

Support Séralini Team for New GMO & Pesticide Risk Research. Your health is at stake


By supporting our team, you will be contributing to experiments on:


- Measuring contamination of foodstuffs by pesticides and GMO
- Measuring contamination of laboratory animal diets by Roundup residues and other environmental pollutants
- Starting a research program on Roundup bioaccumulation in the organs kept from the 2012 toxicity study and other experiments



Factor GMO : Largest international study into safety of GM food launched

/user/image/dossierPicture_555825.pngThousands of rats will be fed Monsanto maize diets in a $23m, three-year ‘Factor GMO’ study into long-term health effects of GM food and associated pesticides

CRIIGEN joins Prof. Séralini to welcome the launch of the new independent study FactorGMO regarding the toxicological impacts of consuming GM maize NK603 and its associated herbicide Roundup, a direct reproduction of their 2012 long term study.

Culinary pleasures or hidden poisons?

/user/image/actualitePicture_909766.pngFor decades, science has invited itself onto our dinner plates. This book asks it to sit down to dinner. International industries have systematized the use of chemicals: spreading them on the fields and using them in the breeding, processing, packaging, and distribution of our food. They constantly invade our bodies. This process has expanded to such a level that it may influence aspects of the future of humanity and the planet.

8:00am - 6:00pm

Featured world-renowned speakers are some of the world’s leading experts in the field of health and healing, with CRIIGEN's experts Pr Gilles-Eric Séralini and Dr Michael Antoniou.

Response by Delaney et al. on the contamination of their control diets

/user/image/communiquePicture_039695.pngIn July 2014, the team of Prof. Séralini published an article 1 in the scientific journal Food and Chemical Toxicology (FCT) in which they challenged the conclusions of researchers from DuPont 2, following the publication of their toxicity study on a GMO. The counter-expertise report produced by Professor Séralini and his team highlighted the presence of residues of Roundup and GMOs in the pellets used to feed the rats.

Cancer deaths double in Argentina's GMO agribusiness areas

/user/image/actualitePicture_280745.pngThe Ecologist, Lawrence Woodward, 24th August 2014


Sharply increased levels of crop spraying in Argentina's most intensively farmed areas have resulted in a public health disaster, writes Lawrence Woodward, with large increases in cancer incidence. And it's all the result of the widespread use of GMO crops engineered for herbicide resistance.
