To avoid having to answer questions asked by CRIIGEN on the health risks of GMOs and on the toxicity of the Roundup included in a large number of GMOs, M. Le Déaut prefers trying to question CRIIGEN’s independence on the grounds that we might have received funds from Carrefour Group. Beside the pathetic and overused character of this procedure, repeating the behaviour of those who tried to conceal the dangers of asbestos and other dangerous products, it goes without saying that CRIIGEN, which is formed by totally independent experts from the GMO lobby, is a recognized expertal body. This is the reason why CRIIGEN conducted studies on behalf of Carrefour and Auchan, as well as on behalf the Italian and Quebecker governments, the Biosafety Committee of China, the University of Montreal, the Tunisian and Egyptian Universities, the Directorate-General for Agriculture of the European Commission and several professional unions in the food-processing industry and in agriculture. The fact that M. Le Déaut is trying to present CRIIGEN in an ill-intentioned and truncated manner clearly demonstrates, if it were needed, that the work accomplished by CRIIGEN to make the GMO studies transparent is clearly disturbing him and that his report, which had been exposed by CRIIGEN on the grounds of the method used even before the content was revealed is solely written in the defence of GMOs. We would very much like that the transparent approach displayed by CRIIGEN where the addressees of the studies are concerned should be applied by all the experts who expressed themselves in the Parliamentary Mission.
