Study Finding Harmful Effects Of GM Corn Triggers Russian Import Ban

September 26, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
A French study that found that rats developed tumors and organ damage when fed Monsanto’s genetically modified (GM) Roundup Ready corn convinced the Russian government to slap a temporary ban on the import of Monsanto’s GM corn. The government asked one of its agencies – the Institute of Nutrition – to verify the study’s findings. The biotechnology sector has strongly criticized the study, whose findings are contradicted by biotechnology company studies, including studies by Monsanto. Monsanto said the French study did not meet minimum acceptable standards for this type of scientific research.
